About This 1830 Antebellum In Salters South Carolina
The centuries old Live Oak alley directs you to this impressive and grand antebellum home. Built to last, almost 200 years ago, the 22” solid brick exterior walls have a smooth stucco finish scored to resemble stone blocks. Broad porches that wrap around the house were designed to catch the breezes of summer, and are a great place to enjoy the peaceful views of the surrounding fields and forest. With the presence of abundant wildlife, deer and wild turkeys are often seen from these porches!
Upon entering the home, the entrance hall has wide antique plank flooring, a large plaster coved ceiling and an imposing stairway with a hand-turned newel and balusters. The hall divides the rooms and, further back there is a matching doorway to the rear porch. On the right, the grand dining room, which has a beautiful fireplace, can easily accommodate a banquet table. The fully equipped chef’s kitchen is impressive as the current owners worked with a true craftsman to create a design of modern appliances blended with older materials.
On the left of the hall is a very large gathering room; great for entertaining company. This high ceilinged and light-filled room is very unique with its moldings and fireplace surround. Behind is a smaller den, perfect for quiet reading or a private office. Adjacent is a large first floor bedroom with many shelves which would be perfect to display your personal treasures! On the second floor there are three bedrooms, which have their own fireplaces, in addition to two bathrooms and access to the porches.
Outside, there is a 50-foot swimming pool, large enough to swim laps. With a large porch and two private restrooms, this outdoor space is ideal for entertaining. There are three accessory buildings, which can serve for many different purposes. Currently they are used for storage, a workshop, and as a “Dance Hall” for social gatherings or for evenings reminiscing around the fireplace.
Privacy and peacefulness are abundant with neighboring areas of forest and farm fields. Numerous public boat landings give access to the near-by rivers and lakes for recreation and world-class fishing to the Black River, Santee River, Lake Moultrie and Lake Marion. There are local stores located near by for one’s needs and the Charleston International Airport is only an hour away!
