    Wow the inside looks good

    The Colonel William Aiken Owens house is said to have originally featured front porch columns more typical of an Antebellum Greek Revival house in SC. The original owner was an officer in the SC Militia, a member of the State Legislature, and the publisher of the first newspaper in the county, which seems like a lot to have accomplished in a short 37 year life.

    I love the inside , I just hate to see all those doors and original woodwork and fireplaces all painted white ? just takes away from the character I feel in my opinion I love wood it’s so warm and inviting …

    Wondering what type of heat and AC it has?

      I looked on the Zillow site and it said that there is gas heat (forced air) and Central air. That’s pretty amazing for such an old house!

        My old house has a furnace in the attic and one in the basement, with plenty of torn up plaster walls from installing the ductwork upstairs. Sort of wished they had left the original boiler and radiators.

    Beautiful windows and entryway. New paint and this would be a grand old lady again. Love it.

    Such a huge house and the inside really surprised me! Lots of beautiful details and looks pretty well taken care of. A LOT of sanding in the future for the buyers, but it will be beautiful after it is painted!

    I love this old dream house! The outside could be stunning with paint, gardens, walkways a porch swing rocking chairs, cool drinks. Yep stunning.
    I wish these homes came with floor plans. sigh

    Inside was sure a surprise. Nice fireplaces and shiny floors. Wonder what all the boards on ground were for? Probably another room torn out? I agree with Debbie. Wish they didn’t paint the woodwork. See several modern touches that some will like. Will make someone a nice home.

    Barb, I agree with you about the radiators. I have owned 3 old houses that originally had radiators….all gone before I owned them. I always wished they had been left. There must be some reason why they went out of style….not efficient??
