Historic District Gem

Said to have been started in 1874, thought to have once been owned by the president of a New York medical college, and known to have served as a temporary rectory for the local Episcopal Church, the house has been expanded, renovated, and updated by various owners and has mellowed into an inviting, livable home in a small southern city with an historically significant past and a forward-looking present.

More About This House

Located on the premier residential block of Camden’s Historic District, the house, grounds, and 50’x22’ pool offer pleasant, comfortable living, surrounded by many of Camden’s leading families and professionals and other historic properties and sites, minutes from virtually everything you’ll need or want.

Within approximately a mile radius you’ll find grocers, pharmacies, doctors, dentists, the hospital, churches, the library, the post office, attorneys, banks, parks, hairdressers, antique stores, the polo field, city hall, Kershaw County offices, the fire and police departments, the Archives Museum, and the old and planned elementary schools. Add about another half-mile and find stables, training tracks, the Steeplechase Museum, the race course for the Colonial Cup and the Carolina Cup, the country club and golf course, the Springdale Dining Club, the Fine Arts Center, and the new Camden Tennis Complex (scheduled for completion in October 2017).

The 4418 sq ft house will delight you daily. With 4-5 bedrooms and 3½ baths, it’s spacious, but not sprawling, and you’ll enjoy simply passing through its rooms and halls as you come and go. The .61 acre grounds provide elbow room and exceptional privacy without useless space to maintain. It’s a package of multiple delights that has housed adults, children, and infants in families sized from two to six since the nineteenth century.

More details follow. For questions, additional photos, or to make an appointment for a visit, please contact the owner via email at historicdistrictgem@gmail.com.
