c. 1890 Victorian Cottage
Summerville, South Carolina
Featured in Southern Living
This is a house that is a treat to see for the fresh juxtaposition of a lively and livable design style that works so well with historic. Indeed, original architecture is intact in rooms with soaring ceilings, fireplaces, heart pine floors, and large windows; the recent addition of a second floor blends perfectly the old and the new with thoughtful attention to every detail to maintain the charm of the period. Undoubtedly these are the reasons the property has been featured in Southern Living as well as several other national publications.
The recent restoration and addition of a second floor preserves and enhances the architecture including exposed brick, shiplap, beautiful hardware, current and vintage fixtures bookcases, custom doors, and brilliant use of light and space. The result is a house that works as well for a family as it does for those seeking one level living with guest rooms upstairs with potential rental income from the separate living space above the garage. Its all here in an ingenious site plan allowing wonderful privacy.
A central bricked courtyard is established by the main house at the front, the guest quarters above a detached garage at the rear, and the master bedroom opening to a porch at the side. This courtyard is the outdoor living room at the heart of a spacious garden with plenty of room for flower and kitchen beds, swimming pool, play areas, or chickens in a luxurious chicken coop that can stay or go! There is something for everyone.
Walk three blocks to Summerville Town Square, shops, restaurants, farmers market, library, gym, theatre, concerts, tennis courts and year round cultural events. 4BR in main house. 1BR in guest.
