    Description

    This immaculate Victorian home located in historic downtown Seneca, South Carolina was built in 1885 by J.W. Stribling. Details of the exterior include original turned columns, steep roof gables, stained glass attic transoms, 1800 sqft. of wide wrap-around porches and ornate millwork. The interior includes seven fireplaces, ten-to-twelve-foot ceilings, heart pine flooring, eight-foot doorways, original moldings and stairways, ornately crafted mill work, fretwork and pocket doors. Though it has been updated and restored over the years, care has been taken to preserve the Victorian character. The renovations have been executed in accordance with the Secretary of State's Guidelines by the Restoration of Properties on the National Register of Historic Places. With 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in this 4,631 square foot home on a full one-acre parcel, you are offered a cozy home feeling while provided with plenty of space to entertain up to 100 party guests. Architect owner has worked diligently to preserve the original beauty of the home and at the same time create an environment for living and for guests. Note: Two more bathrooms can be created in large walk-in closet spaces. This will yield 4 suites with private bathrooms. Local zoning also allows the home to be used as a bed and breakfast, Airbnb or event venue. Tax breaks are available for historic homes used as businesses or updating. Parking is easy with a circular driveway and street side parking. The home is situated on the highest point in Seneca, offering mountain views and cooling breezes from the north. Upgrades include: a new roof in 2021, reconstruction and re-pointing of chimneys, lighting rod system, deck reconstruction and addition of new decks, reconstruction of sections of front porch, window reconstruction where needed, painting, restoration of stained glass, plumbing changed to copper supply lines and pvc waste lines with some old cast iron, a reconfiguration of the floor plan to modernize bathrooms and kitchen, restoration of all windows, restoration of all plaster, restoration of all beadboard, restoration of all original doors, repair & refinishing all heart pine flooring, installation of new fixtures/ appliances, installation of gas fire logs in central fireplace (other fireplaces closed up), and installation of cabinetry & built-in shelving. A barn offers extra storage and the incredible backyard also includes a playhouse. Landscaping design is based on an heirloom plan, which incorporates traditional shade trees and varieties of trees, shrubs and blooming perennials. Nearby Clemson University, the Blue Ridge mountains, Lake Hartwell, Lake Keowee and Lake Jocassee make this a wonderful destination for sports and outdoor enthusiasts. A less than two hour drive to Atlanta, Charlotte or Asheville avails you to major airports, entertainment, shopping and dining. All in all, the stunning house and yard, location and potential make this an extraordinary and unique find. More pictures and videos available upon request.
