    What a fantastic opportunity for someone to finish the restoration of this historically significant Society Hill house. This particular I house form, with the one story shed-roofed front porch and rear extensions, is called Plantation Plain and is quite common throughout Georgia and the Carolinas. When someone says “good bones”, this is what they (should) mean.

    These old houses look naked without their chimneys.

    The link to the history of the family is fascinating.

      I agree, Melissa. One of my favorite parts of loving old houses is hearing the history and stories of the people that lived there!

    The inside is not nearly as difficult as I thought it might be. It’s a beautiful house. It would be a strict preservationists dream come true.

    Original “shudders”? Is this Southern spelling?

    I was really warming up to this house as a project when I realized that it has neither plumbing nor electrical service…

    What an amazing house, amazing price, and amazing history! And I love the fact that archaeologists come back every year to work on the grounds, just fascinating! A question for all you pros out there: can anyone give a guess as to what it would cost to restore a place like this? and the time it would take? Inquiring minds want to know ….

    This house (which the Palmetto Trust site says is sold) and the Williams house also in Society Hill, posted on the 27th, along with several others, was saved from dereliction by Dr. Ernest Helms III. In 2012 he received the SC Governor’s Award for “his life’s achievement of saving and restoring historically significant homes.” He has apparently stabilized & re-roofed antique places, then donated them to the Palmetto Trust to find buyers who will continue the work and live in them. Another of his rescues is also on the market with 63 acres; can’t tell if he has lived here but it is mostly restored. https://www.zillow.com/homedetails/1921-Georgetown-Rd-Darlington-SC-29532/83202792_zpid/

    what is the brick thing in photo 7? It looks like a ruined outbuilding of some sort, but I don’t see it in any other photos of the house, so it’s hard to get a sense of where it is, and how big it is from just the one photo.

      1875 Limestone house
      Langeais, Loire Valley,

      it appears to be close to the house, that we can see in the background, so my guess would be that it was the original detached kitchen?

    When my husband and I go back to NC from GA to visit our friends, we always drive through Society Hill. It is one of my favorite locations to photograph. Such lovely only homes and there is an historical marker ever 10 feet in this old town.
