House and 25 acres 6 Bedroom 3 Bathroom 6,000 ft2

The frequency of properties this sui generis becoming available is......well, not often. The solid construction of this home began in 1850 and was completed four years later. It has been in the same family for 165 years and remarkably survived Sherman’s rampage through the South in spite of 17,000 Union soldiers marching through Liberty Hill in 1865 – but that’s a story for another time. It is the most prominent home in Liberty Hill, is on the National Register of Historic Places and has changed but little since the beginning of the 20th century.

THE COLUMNS: A STEP BACK IN TIME

The frequency of properties this sui generis becoming available is……well, not often.  The solid construction of this home began in 1850 and was completed four years later.  It has been in the same family for 165 years and remarkably survived Sherman’s rampage through the South in spite of 17,000 Union soldiers marching through Liberty Hill in 1865 – but that’s a story for another time.  It is the most prominent home in Liberty Hill, is on the National Register of Historic Places* and has changed but little since the beginning of the 20th century.

Situated on 25 acres, this 6,000 SF antebellum masterpiece has six bedrooms, three baths, a kitchen, den, parlor, dining room and expansive porches on both the front and back.  The basement offers a seventh bedroom and another den or storage area.  Fourteen foot ceilings on the first floor and twelve foot ceilings on the second floor punctuate the feeling that you have stepped back in time.  Giant pocket doors and a mahogany handrail leading up the stair case testify to the craftsmanship of a bygone era.  The heart pine floors can’t talk but you sure wish they could.

Long range views of the Catawba/Wateree River valley are available from the backyard and out of the windows of the kitchen and two of the upstairs bedrooms.  A secure metal storage building (1,500 SF) is included on the property.  A large garden area compliments the yard and open area around the house while a mixture of mature pine and hardwood offer a home for the abundant wildlife in the area.

Shown by appointment only.
