1895 Eastlake Victorian
Marion, SC

The Grove

This breathtaking 7,000 SF beauty is one-of-a kind. First, let's start with the fact that it is an Eastlake Victorian located in a small Southern town. It's right in the heart of town, yet situated on 5 acres at the end of a quiet street. There are 4 more adjoining acres which can most likely be purchased.

Prepare to be amazed by the architecture, the quality of renovation work that has been recently done and the gorgeous gardens that surround it. 'The Grove' was originally the home of W.J. Montgomery and his family. Mr. Montgomery was a SC Senator, a member of the House, a delegate to the 1895 SC Constitutional Convention, and founder of the SC Bankers Association.

The Montgomery family and descendants occupied the estate for just short of a full century. His son was a pioneer aviator and his daughter was an author and photographer...so there is no doubt, based on their social status, that the Montgomerys had the financial strength to build a home of the finest materials and hire the best workers that could be found in 1895.

There are two barns outside...one full of tools that would have been used in bygone days to run a farm. The other includes a simple apartment.

The Grove is currently a private home, but could also operated as a Bed & Breakfast as it has been in the past. 3 stories. 6 bedrooms. 6.5 baths. 2 kitchens. 1 apartment. Gorgeous, expansive lawn and gardens with beautiful specimen plants. And be sure to look for the secret room in the turret.

Bedrooms: 6
Full Bath(s): 7
Heated Sq. Ft.: 7,000
Acres: 5.000
