The Boxwood Parterre garden and 80 foot wide covered porch
An elegant trifecta of Architecture, History and Gardens in a private pastoral setting on Greenwood’s finest estate home and grounds! Everything about this property is unique. It was built by a Charleston family in Anderson, S.C. in 1859 as a summer home but probably never used due to the outbreak of the Civil War. It features distinctive architecture referred to as “Chinese Chippendale,” so called for the steeply pitched roofs with flared eaves and the intricately patterned porch railings and columns reminiscent of 18th century “Chinese-style”. The house has been identified as one of only five remaining houses of this style in S.C.

History

It was built by a Charleston family in Anderson, S.C. in 1859 as a summer home but probably never used due to the outbreak of the Civil War. It features distinctive architecture referred to as “Chinese Chippendale,” so called for the steeply pitched roofs with flared eaves and the intricately patterned porch railings and columns reminiscent of 18th century “Chinese-style”. The house has been identified as one of only five remaining houses of this style in S.C.
When purchased by the Sullivan Family in 1872, it was “in a state of neglect”. The Sullivans refurbished the house, and used it as a showplace for many years. George Bell Timmerman Sr., once associate justice of the South Carolina Supreme Court, occupied the house for a time and George Bell Timmerman Jr., South Carolina Governor from 1955 to 1959, was born in the house in 1912. The house was listed on The National Register of Historic Places in 1973. The Palmetto Trust optioned the property in 1996, and in 1997 it was sold to a Greenwood couple who then moved the home from Anderson to Greenwood where they lovingly and painstakingly refurbished and renovated it over several years. Inspired by the 1735 Georgetown County plantation Friendfield they developed a small, large lot neighborhood with a European influenced entry feature in which to site their new home.
