Description: This exquisite Executive Home sits sedately on a knoll overlooking a 35-acre Private Lake and is nestled in a magnificent 256-acre wooded tract of land in historic Union County, South Carolina. Professionally designed to reflect the grandeur of the homes of Colonial Williamsburg, this unique brick residence offers many of the details and features found in those historic homes, along with all the modern amenities. Built by master craftsmen seventeen years ago and lovingly maintained ever since, this comfortable yet gracious home offers 5,026 square feet of elegant living space that makes it the perfect place to live and to entertain guests and family.
The first story, consisting of 3,367 square feet, offers a formal foyer and staircase that gracefully ascends to the second story. To the right of the foyer lies a large Parlor, featuring a functional fireplace, superb dentil crown moldings, fine cabinetry, and solid cherry floors.
Beyond the Parlor is the hallway to the Master Suite. A finely appointed powder room lies on the right as you approach the Master Suite. Further on, the vaulted ceiling and dormers of the large Master Bedroom provide natural light and openness that enhance the country charm of this inviting room. Solid cherry floors add to the appeal and the fireplace brings warmth to this intimate retreat on chilly winter nights. A private entrance descends from the Master Bedroom to a brick patio where you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee as you watch the sun rise over the lake below. The Master Bath offers a separate ceramic tile shower and whirlpool tub -- which overlooks a mature hardwood forest.
Moving from the foyer to the left is the formal Dining Room. This elegant space features solid cherry floors, exquisite cabinetry, and rich dentil crown moldings. Expertly done wall stenciling enhances the warmth and colonial charm of this room.
The heart of this home, the magnificent Kitchen, lies just off of the Dining Room. Handcrafted solid cherry cabinets and a brick floor give this kitchen unmatched warmth and appeal. A period-correct fireplace is designed to use gas logs or real wood – and to add to the attraction of this inviting space. The solid Corian® countertops provide beauty and easy care through years of use. A large island work center offers additional drawer and cabinet space, together with a gas range & grill – not to mention a stainless steel bar sink and a generous serving and eating area. Cherry doors on the side-by-side refrigerator/freezer allow it to fit perfectly into the kitchen décor. An ample Butler’s Pantry provides even more storage.
Just off of the Kitchen is the Den with rich raised panel solid cherry walls and cabinetry, a fireplace, brick floor, and a fully equipped wet bar. What a great place to put your feet up and enjoy a good book – or nap.
Both the Kitchen and the Study open onto the very inviting Florida Room. The natural light is cheerful and not overwhelming, while good engineering and excellent windows keep the temperature comfortable. Views of the forest and the lake make it a joy to be in this most appealing space. The Florida Room also opens to another small patio that is ideal for cooking out. Here is yet another place to enjoy a cool evening and a good meal – all while being surrounded by the sights and sounds of nature.
Beyond the kitchen is the utility room, another half bath, and the entrance to a large attached two car garage with storage cabinets and a double stainless steel sink – all designed for easy entry with an armload of groceries.
The second floor features three bedrooms, two baths, and an open study area. The upstairs hallway overlooks the entrance foyer and the bedroom to the right at the top of the stairs is a large guest suite with a walk-in closet and private bath. The second cozy bedroom has a large closet and a separate entrance to the bathroom off the hall. Across the hall is the third upstairs bedroom that overlooks the front lawn and lake through a dormer window. Past the last bedroom is an open study next to the stairs that descend into the kitchen below.
The Full Basement offers an additional 3,367 square feet of space that is NOT counted in the space described above. The paved approach to the basement allows for the easy storage of any equipment… vehicles, water sports equipment in any of the two garage bays located here.
Did we mention attention to detail? The exterior walls are faithfully executed Flemish Bond brickwork and all exterior doors have brass thresholds. Outside faucets are all freeze proof and an automated sprinkler system helps to keep the grass green. The gutters are capped with Gutter Helmet® to keep you from having to clean them ever again. A monitored security system ensures that although you are located in the country, your safety is never compromised.
This magnificent home is tucked away at the end of its own half-mile long paved driveway and is surrounded by 256 beautiful acres. Approximately 16 acres lie under the 35-acre Private Lake that was built and is maintained by the US Government. The balance of the property consists of well managed Pine and Hardwood Forests, which are accessed by a system of interior roads. White-tailed Deer and Wild Turkey abound. This property has not been hunted in more than seventeen years.
