    This is really a beautiful house. I really love that HUGE Dining Room! Funny thing that I have never seen–if you look at the street view and try to go down the street on the side of the property, there is a giant tree growing in the middle of the street! That makes this house even more than perfect!

    Notice how the front porch is painted blue? In Key West, I went on a “ghost tour” and the guide said that porches and other entrances should always be painted “Haint Blue” to keep ghosts and evil spirits out of your house! But what if there are already ghosts in your house, does that keep them in? LOL

    Nice updates, tastefully done. Old charm with modern conveniences.

    my ancestors came from SC. lovely home, wish it had a WOW staircase

    Wow. At that price I expected the interior to be torn up. Instead it’s in great condition. This would be a steal for someone in the area. Streetview has an even better picture of the front exterior. If I were looking in this area I’d be there this weekend.

    What a lovely home and property. I am ready to pack up move in and quit my job.

    Yes, “haint blue” is the proper color to keep ghosts away. Usually it’s the ceilings that are blue. I guess it depends on if your ghost is walking or flying. LoL!

      Haint blue is supposed to represent the color of water, and since haints (haunts or ghosts) cannot cross water, your house would be protected. I’ve seen SC slave cabins with the remnants of haint blue on all of the interior walls, ceiling, and floor. It’s become trendy to paint porch ceilings light blue throughout much of the country, and in most places, it probably represents the sky rather than water. The Lowcountry regions of SC and GA claim haint blue as a Gulllah/ Geechie tradition separate from other uses of similar colors.

    It’s a nice house, I like all of the unpainted woodwork, although it seems unusual to have so much that’s unpainted in a house of this kind. Looking at it in the first picture it kind of reminds me of the Bearden-Cline House in Waleska, GA; https://www.oldhousedreams.com/2011/09/29/1909-vernacular-waleska-ga-280000/

    This pretty Neoclassical house appears to be in better condition than most, and it’s located in one of the many small towns close to the Savannah River Site. This could be a good thing for potential employment or a bad thing, depending on your views. You’d be within an hour of Augusta and just a little more to Columbia.

    The house is in Elko, a tiny place outside of Williston. It’s a beautiful home needing very little cosmetically IMO. An open mind and friendly demeanor would probably go a long way here.

    Beautiful home. While I can do without the yellow paint in the kitchen, some of the paint choices look great! Remember, I’m a wallpaper lover. I’d probably wallpaper over the green in the bedrooms and the blue in the bathroom But, I love all the unpainted woodwork and the yard is fabulous. This looks like a well maintained and loved home, and I get good vibes looking at it.

    great home with many lovely features. the only thing I really don’t like is the front door. It’s elegant on the inside but the outside is disappointing as is the door on the porch above. Also, the bathroom with the shower is awkward and odd. It doesn’t fit and it seems too narrow a space to have to walk between the sink and the john to get to the shower. I am also wondering if there are other buildings on the property such as a stable or a barn. Since they show horses I would think that is likely.
    My other wants would be a garage or at least a carport and a gazebo ~ preferably next to a pool. Otherwise I will take it.

    I thought the pictures with the staircase were being wildly distorted by the camera, but that’s just a tiny little chair.

    I have a question regarding this house style. See how the front door is off center from the front steps? Well I have see multiple homes of this style, Plantation(?) Southern Victorian (?) and they all seem to have the door offset from the center of the stairs. Why is that. Personally I find it awkward and want to move that door over so it is right in the middle of the stairs but apparently it served some purpose as I see it over and over again.

    I love this place. My dream home with room for the horses. The dead end road next to it is called Cemetery Rd. too bad street view didn’t go that way. I think it only adds charm to the home. A little close to the street but otherwise, perfect.
