From the Zillow listing:


Absolutely stunning Eastlake Victorian style home located in the heart of historic Marion, SC. “The Grove” was originally the home of W.J. Montgomery and his family. He was a state senator, a member of the House of Representatives and a delegate to the 1895 SC Constitutional Convention. He was also the founder of the SC Bankers Association. His family and descendants occupied this estate for nearly a century. This sprawling 7000 square foot home was most recently used as a bed & breakfast and also as a residence as the third floor was converted from unfinished space to livable space with a bedroom, bathroom and a full kitchen. The current owners have painted the entire house, installed new fixtures, replaced and re-plastered the back stairway and completely re-landscaped the grounds. There is a guest house located over the garage with 1 BR, 1BA and a full kitchen. (currently not heated) In addition there is also a barn with 3 horse stalls and also a small unfinished basement as well as an 8×10 wine cellar located in the main house. This property is also a great venue for weddings. There’s plenty of space to park and has had as many as 75 cars parked on the grounds for a wedding. Don’t miss your opportunity to own a piece of history and fulfill your dreams of owning and operating your own bed & breakfast.
