In the 1800's, the folks who owned it did cotton farming. It was later purchased by a doctor who took two old houses and sistered them together. Original ceilings still remain in the dining room, living room and grand hall.
Years later, a lovely gentleman who was a structural engineer bought it and remodeled it, adding on two bedrooms with private bathrooms.
After looking for several years for just such a place, we knew we had found it the moment we walked on the land. We fell in love with the whole place & you will, too! We did some updating ourselves by taking in the large utility room adjacent to the kitchen, thus allowing us to create a huge country kitchen with 11 foot pine top island for family and friends to gather and keep the cook company. We added two farmhouse sinks and a stove any chef would be proud of as well as the updated dishwasher, refrigerator with ice maker, and a microwave. Then came a luxury bathroom with air- jetted tub in the master suite. A sitting room was created in the master suite from what was once an enclosed porch. Over the last few years, we added a stone fireplace in the large family room, enlarged the back deck, and added a 20 X 20 pavilion down by the spring fed pond.
A beautiful setting for a Wedding, Family Reunion, Birthday or any special occasion without breaking the bank. Ask us about the many amenities and assistance we can offer for your event.
Do come! You’ll love it!
