Talk about privacy! 35 acres of mostly mature timber wrapped around a nearly three acre pond and a variety of meadows, paddocks and cleared pastures, all this hidden away on a county maintained dirt and gravel road just 15 miles from the equestrian center of Camden, South Carolina. Acres of seclusion make this a versitle property suitable for duck hunting, deer hunting, fishing, nature watching as well as horseback riding. This waterfront home is a 30 year old collage of brick, stone and wood siding that shows signs of inspiration by Frank Lloyd Wright’s famous “Prairie Houses” while the two bedroom and one bath guest (caretaker’s, in-law or rental) house blends in with the surroundings so unobtrusively that it also seems to follow tenets of that school of architecture.
Winding through the trees to the side courtyard allows entry to the home either through the attached two car garage or the side door (both of which lead in turn to the kitchen) or, down the stone lined pathway, to the main entrance. The “front” walkway (so-called although apparently at the rear of the house) is flanked by a lovely, tree-bordered lawn to the right and, when it turns left to lead to the “front” door, is flanked by a picturesque interior grassy courtyard. This entry leads in turn to the spectacular living room with its perimeter brick columns, floor to cathedral ceiling stone-flanked brick fireplace and spectacular views out over the pond and the surrounding forest. The right hand wing of the house contains the three bedrooms plus two full baths, an office with built-in bookcases and a wine cellar; the left hand wing is made up of the garage, eat-in kitchen with cooking island, half bath, arbored patio and a large formal dining area. A variety of wood trim and paneling, as well as many interior brick walls and columns, accent the home. The pond-side of the house has a broad stone and concrete veranda with wide steps leading down to a gentle slope to the pond while the bedroom wing has a porch and deck accessible from most of the bedrooms.
The condition of the main structures is quite good with a new roof on the main house about eight years ago and new appliances in its kitchen; the guesthouse was completely renovated recently with new plumbing, appliances, wiring, flooring and HVAC. Both residences are very tastefully and stylishly furnished; most furnishings will convey along with the real estate.
The property is set up for equine activities by way of paddocks, horse stall, new barn for hay and feed storage, horse-fenced areas (also big bird pen) and a training area.
Comfortably close to historic Camden and handy to I-20 and thus to Columbia, Charlotte and Charleston. This property is a real find at $590,000 (Being sold "As Is").
