This gracious and stately property is a throwback to the Golden Age of Summerville. This estate is magnificent in every sense of the word. 1.15 acres adorned with grand live oaks; tea olive, azalea, camellia, and even tea bushes. The home defies adequate description (please see attached improvement list). Wide foyer leads into formal dining room, gourmet kitchen, ballroom-size living room, family room. First level also features bedroom, walk-in pantry, bathrooms, and a guest suite with BR, bath, and utility room (perfect for MIL). Second level has spacious master suite w/ 2 WIC's, imported claw foot tub, separate shower. This level also has another oversize bedroom and a full bath. The home features a large screened porch as well as a covered patio. The carriage house is amazing and would serve as an excellent home office. The decorative iron work on the balcony is an original by Philip Simmons, renowned and master blacksmith from Charleston. Extensive and tasteful masonry is found throughout the yard. The setting is private, aesthetic, and one-of-a-kind. This home was built by Dr. Shepard who founded the original tea farm. The current owners have made significant improvements and were given an award by the Summerville Preservation Society. This beautiful home is in a class by itself. It is easy to show, and well worth your time.
