Wow! You must tour this one-of-a-kind home and property to truly appreciate the attention to detail in construction throughout. Its location, just minutes from Downtown Landrum and The Tryon International Equestrian Center is convenient to shopping, dining, and state of the art equestrian facilities. The property is situated on 4.56 acres in Landrum, SC, with the North Carolina state line serving as the property line, and the land itself being steeped in rich history. The history of the land, is second only to the history of the 2-room log cabin that was moved to the property in the 1960’s. It was originally built 1880-1890. It has sustained multiple additions through the years, with the interior of the home almost completely renovated from 1999-2001. The original home features antique log construction and cedar shingles. The lush gardens WELCOME YOU HOME, and as you meander through them on the Pennsylvania bluestone paths, that connect the three outdoor spaces, you become aware of the beauty of this property. The expansive views of the mountains are breathtaking, especially with the myriad of colors in the gardens. There is a Millstone Pond and a fountain strategically placed in the gardens, which provides the tranquil sound of water. Once you enter the home, you realize just how special this home is. The floor to ceiling windows bring the outside in and allow you a full sensory experience. The main level features the master bedroom, bathroom, study, laundry room, den, living room, dining room, kitchen, great room, and office, each room featuring hardwood floors(exception MSTR Bdrm and den, which have carpet). There are custom built-ins, bookcases, and antique beams and wood are used throughout the home. The lower-level, which has both interior and exterior access (2), features a kitchenette, 2 full baths, 2 bathrooms, laundry room and den, and would make an excellent in-law suite or private guest quarters. Located off of this area, under the great room is a “studio”, which is heated and has air conditioning. There are 4 fireplaces throughout the home and each has its own personality, whether it be dry laid stone, antique wood, or masonry, they truly make you want to sit fireside and reflect. The heart of the home is the kitchen, and this one does not disappoint. The owner went to great lengths to make this a “cooks kitchen”, installing high-end appliances, which include: Thermador Convection self-cleaning ovens and black top stove top with venting system, a Subzero refrigerator, Bosch Dishwasher, and a built-in microwave; as well as the installation of cabinetry and countertops that are 30″ deep and comfort height on the bottom-creating a large workspace for prepping and serving. The flow of this home is impeccable and well thought out, allowing the owner to entertain effortlessly both inside and outside-leaving the guests to ooh and aah over their delightful surroundings. In addition, this home also has a greenhouse and a workshop, with a third car garage and attached storage area. Finally, this home also boasts a whole house generator-complete with a 1000 gallon propane tank, two water cisterns totaling 2600 gallons of water when full, an alarm system, and intercom system, complete with AM/FM radio.
