About This 1895 Victorian For Sale In Marion South Carolina
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. His 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 statue, 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 being operated as a Bed & Breakfast, but could also make a wonderful private home. 3 stories. 6 bedrooms. 6.5 baths. 2 kitchens. 1 apartment. Gorgeous, expansive lawn and gardens.
