The George Summer House

Welcome to the historic George Summer House, built 1912. Nestled in the heart of Newberry, South Carolina most recently named one of 50 of the most charming small towns in America by the Travel Channel, this stunning neo-classical residence was the home of George Summer, a distinguished local entrepreneur of the early 20th century.

Summer's ventures, which included the nearby Cotton Mill, the Newberry Hotel, the Newberry Lumber Company, and the Commercial Bank of Newberry, left a significant mark on the community. This architectural gem boasts an impressive portico with Corinthian columns and a charming Juliet balcony. Inside, you'll find beautifully preserved original hardwood floors and extraordinary woodwork that speaks to the home’s rich history.

The house features a cozy library or office space complete with a built-in bookcase and a welcoming fireplace. The main floor houses a master suite, while the second floor offers three spacious bedrooms and two bathrooms. The third floor includes a versatile bonus room with a half bath.

The sunroom, extending from the master suite, serves as an ideal spot for a den, art studio, or pet's bedroom, offering a view of the surroundings. The expansive basement presents ample possibilities for transformation.

With its prime location, just a 5 minute walk from Newberry's historic public square and great restaurants, coffee shops, a popular cigar bar all anchored by the Nationally renowned Newberry Opera House, a true treasure that has been recognized nationally by the League of Historic American Theatres with an Outstanding Theater Award. The 1881 French Gothic structure presents more than 200 events annually that draws approximately 100,000 people a year to Newberry who come to see performances that have ranged from Kris Kristofferson to Don Felder, Joan Baez, and Toni Orlando.

The George Summer House is more than just a residence—it's a piece of living history in a community rich in culture, arts, and education, thanks to its opera house, vibrant arts scene, and the presence of a small liberal arts college. It's truly a remarkable place to call home.
