    I wouldn’t change a single thing about this lovely house. That blue wall in the stairway especially.

    Are those the original porch columns?

    A few clues that this may be older…

      I was just in SC this weekend to look at this home again. It was built as a single story in the 1870’s. It was raised in 1910 with a first floor constructed of brick with stucco exterior. The front had a double porch with 4 Doric columns on the second floorl level and a wrap around porch on the first floor with approximately 4 Doric columns on each side of the front door and 2 more on each side. The porch had 12 Doric columns on the first floor. The interior door and wall on the stairs was added latter to help with the heating. Both the front and back hall walls containing the glass doors were added later to help with the heating. They can easily be removed as no trim,wainscoting or crown molding was altered in their addition. This would reveal the grand center hall as it was intended.

    First story seems to be brick? Also, I’m not getting how the staircase is set up. Divided from the landing up, but down, too?

      The center hallway has had a front and back wall with glass doors added to help with the heating. Originally, the staircase would have been split with an entrance in the front and back hall with the doorway to the dining room in the center of them. It would be very grand to remove the wall and doorway from both the front and back hall to reveal the original design.

    Beautiful woodwork, but too dark for me. Much potential and cheap !

    It would be interesting to see older photo’s to see what this originally looked like. I wonder if this might have started out as a one story. We have all learned on OHD that raising a house and a first floor built under the original used to be done more often than you would think. I have no information to back up my theory. If you look at the second story and the difference on the outside from the first and as noted above the staircase set up. It does look to me it was raised at some point long ago. This being said it is amazing how some of this was achieved without the machinery we have today. It is still a beautiful home no matter how it started out.

      I think you may be on to something. You can also see the different windowpane pattern from the main floor to the second floor. If this was build all at the same time, wouldn’t the pattern match?

      I just traded back to SC again this weekend. This was built as a single story in the 1870’s. It was raised in 1910 with a solid brick first floor. It originally had a wrap around porch with Doric columns.

    I love everything about this comfortable house! The rooms are spacious and the dark woodwork and stairs are wonderful. I saw another set of front doors and windows in the foyer in a house in Alabama built in 1907. Beautiful!

    hey! This is my new town… so many old wonderful houses for sale in this area. Unfortunately, the region lost industry when the textile companies closed down and that has caused crime to skyrocket, especially in Dillon. I live several miles outside of town so I am safe but am hoping the situation improves soon or so many homes will end up being abandoned or lost. An inland port is currently being built and that is hopefully going to bring an economic boost to the area. Despite all that i love the area, people are wonderful and I love my old “new” home!

    Such a stately, yet inviting home. Just beautiful!

    I’m going to view this house next week. I hope it looks as great in person as it does here. Im confused about the lower half of the exterior not having the siding like the top half. The columns are easy to exchange with period correct ones. Getting excited.

        I went to view this house this past weekend. It was magnificent! Much more impressive in person than it photographed. The inside is is much more intact than the outside which is still confusing to me. The house has an addition on the back which I think was added in 1910. The original home is older probably from the 1880’s. Luckily, only one complete room downstairs has been painted. The remaining woodwork is left unpainted. Love this property!

          Howdy Jayl65. Was wondering if you first saw the house here on OHD, or just noticed this post after you were already interested in seeing it? Don’t worry, not looking for a finders fee; maybe just a bit of satisfaction for Kelly who spends a lot of time helping folks find their dream house. Cheers! Thanks’ a lot.
