Description

SUMMERS IN THE SOUTH AT "THE GLENThe smell of sweet honeysuckle, the sound of children laughing, and the glow of fireflies light up the air on Micasa Dr. Imagine it, Circa 1835, Dr. Gibbes Kisses his wife and kids as he heads out on his short journey to Farmers Hall where he ran the town clinic as a physician and dentist. By 1845, Dr. Gibbes, cousin to Lewis Gibbes of Ashtabula, sold "The Glen to Samuel Maxwell, grandson to Robert Anderson of which Anderson County gained its namesake. Mr. Maxwell, who served as a town councilman, was vital in the petition to renew Pendletons charter of incorporation in 1853. In August of 1859, Samuel Maxwell lovingly passed the torch of "The Glen to his only daughter, Sue Conyers as her wedding gift upon the nuptials to Dr. Thomas J. Pickens, great-grandson of General Andrew Pickens who commanded over Sues great grandfather, Colonel Robert Anderson. The wedding of Dr. Pickens to Sue Conyers was the event of the season with the whos who of Pendleton in attendance. The tales of fancy balls and festivities are documented by a letter of gossip written by John C. Calhouns wife, Floride to her daughter that is proudly displayed in the center hall of the home. Dr. Pickens also kindly served his townspeople as the community physician often bartering his services with Hunters Store. Dr. Pickens resided in "The Glen until his death in 1917 at the age of 80. Over the next hundred years, "The Glen has been occupied by 5 prominent families, and now, for the first time in 25 years, this show-stopping home is available for sale. The Federal-style home was constructed during Pendletons golden era of development when many of the great historic houses were built. Beautifully sited on 8.4 acres, "The Glen offers one of the largest residential parcels in Pendleton. Previous owners have thoughtfully created wonderful English Gardens around the home which can be enjoyed from the many expansive porches. A side entry hall leads to a large parlor with high ceilings and a fireplace, while a dining room beyond featuring a built-in china closet is ideal for entertaining. The spacious updated kitchen overlooks the gardens and opens into a light-filled breakfast room. A wing of more recent construction includes a cozy den and two substantial master bedroom suites. The fine original federal staircase is reminiscent of that found at nearby historic "Woodburn and is surrounded by original hand-planed wide board walls. Upstairs, are three additional bedrooms with the original wide pine floors along with a large bath. On the property, you will also find a guest cottage with a spacious open concept and an expansive front porch to enjoy the scenery of many reflection gardens. "The Glen is a rare opportunity to own an amazing historic home that is truly an intown sprawling estate to serve as a private residence, or a wonderful investment opportunity as a possible bed and breakfast, or even a unique wedding venue. This property can be found just minutes from Clemson University and only a short walk to picturesque Pendleton Square!
