Agent Remarks

This lovely turn of the century country home comes with small town living in peaceful, quaint Saint George! The one acre lot is filled with azaleas, camellias, magnolia and moss-draped live oaks. An extra-large, lazy, welcoming front porch is perfect for rocking or entertaining and prompts the feeling of Southern living in times long past. A gracious front door, with side lights & transom window, opens to a spacious entrance hall that leads you all the way to the back of the home. The broad hall widens after the stairway ascends. Both levels of this intriguing home boast 12-foot ceilings and most rooms have new ceiling fans or unique ceiling light fixtures. The elegant living room, enhanced by a fireplace with a beautiful gas insert, is through French doors to the right of the entrance hall and is followed by a dining room, den/family room and kitchen. The den has a door to the rear deck. The former family breakfast room is just off the back of the kitchen and has a door to the back of the house. Currently used for storage, this room could be combined with the existing kitchen to create the ultimate chef's kitchen. The kitchen door opens to the "driveway" side of the house. Beyond the staircase, also on the right of the entrance hall, there is a bedroom suite, with a fireplace, that also opens via French doors to the den. The den and breakfast room are separated by a full bath. At the back of the entrance hall is another bedroom suite with a huge walk-in closet and a private entrance from the rear deck. The downstairs master suite is to the left of the entrance hall and includes two rooms, separated by a large bath with a soaking tub & separate shower. The front room of this suite has a fireplace with gas logs. If desired, this could be two bedrooms with a shared bath since both rooms have a hallway entrance. Up the massive staircase you will find a wide center hallway. Each end of the hallway has a door with side lights. On one side is the upstairs master suite, which includes two rooms separated by a large bath with two walk-in closets. If preferred, this could be two bedrooms with a shared bath since both rooms have a hallway entrance. On the other side of the center hall are two additional bedroom suites. A renovation completed by the seller in 2007 accomplished the important task of totally replacing the electrical, plumbing, and heating and air systems, installing a new architectural shingle roof, and remodeling each of the 7 bathrooms. All new electrical wiring is heavy duty and was installed to commercial standards in the event someone would want to use the home as the Inn that the family operated from 1954-1974, called The Chimney. A new HVAC and ductwork was installed for the first floor. Each upstairs room is wired for a mini-split heating and cooling system to allow for individual control of the temperature. What a great time to buy this fascinating home well-suited to be an Inn, a Bed & Breakfast, an awesome Event Space or a large family home. They just don't build them like this anymore! It's a great time to buy in Dorchester County before all the new growth that will inevitably come with the new Volvo Plant in neighboring Ridgeville. Owner believes home was originally constructed in the late 1870's and that the 1933 date shown in the tax records reflects the date of the kitchen addition. Owner also believes the home is 4,600 square feet instead of 4,350 as reflected in the tax record. This home sits on 1 acre. The owner of the vacant, 6 acre, neighboring lot will consider selling all or part of his lot only to the buyer of 408 N. Parler Ave,. if the buyer would like more property.
