The Pine House, established in 1757, is one of the oldest continuously occupied house sites in western South Carolina. Built initially by Richard Pace, President George Washington visited during his tour of the south in 1791. The house was owned by several prominent planters in the antebellum period. Benjamin W. Bettis purchased the home in 1858. It burned in 1866 and was rebuilt in 1868 - as it stands today. The stunning Greek Revival home has been in one of two families for more than a century and a half. Featuring wide, central halls up and downstairs, the house is a ''four over four'' layout typical of the time period. It has heart pine floors and original plaster lathe walls. Interesting architectural features include beautiful mantle pieces, red Venetian sidelights, crown molding.

    I am in love with this house! Is the kitchen in the small house off to the side?

    Thanks for sharing, Kelly. I’m not sure which I like more — the front approach or the rear of the home. The round columns on one side and the square columns on the other side are equally stately and appealing.

    I wonder if they would throw in those two beds……

    Surprising for this price point that the agent seemed to focus more on the furnishings rather than the many wonderful home features. I’m glad I looked at the map and arial views to realize just what this offered.

    Beautiful home. I love the tree in the entry. Merry Christmas!

  7. We finally get to see the inside of this house! Beautiful! We pass this home visiting the In-Laws. It is not far from Aiken, SC and only a few miles from Edgefield, SC. Lots of beautiful old homes in the area. I always figured the house was part of the farm of acres and acres of beautiful peach trees. They surround the house on all sides. Unfortunately, it is at the corner of a major country road intersection but they have a good screen of trees blocking the view of the intersection.

    Wow! What a house! As a northerner, this is what I think of as an antebellum plantation house!
    Impressive research!
    Not to be impertinent, but I wonder why this young couple are selling their ancestral home. I wonder if another branch will take it over. Wouldn’t that be something!

    Such a beautiful comfortable home. I love brick / cobble stone walkways. As my hometown was where Home Sweet Home was written. It feels like a step back in time. And a cozy fireplace for those chilly nights.

    Great looking classical architecture! Nice setting as well!

    Lovely home! That sink on legs in one of the bathrooms is cool. The kitchen is huge.

    Wonderful home and outbuildings. What a pity about the location at the intersection of two main roads. That street level photos says it all. Noisy tractor trailers all day – no thanks.

    Good old Geo. Washington, apparently slept around, probably tired from civic duties.

    Is the building behind this home a rental?

  16. What a gorgeous property.

    Wow!Those grand hallways on both floors are fantastic – especially the door to the upstairs balcony/porch! I did a walk around on the street on the map program. Yes, it’s busy up at the corner – and a little close to the US Fibers factory for me, but it’s much better to have a large local employer up the road than an abandoned factory.

    You would be surprised at how quickly you become use to the traffic noise. This house is well worth a little noise adjustment. I would need to do a major rearrange on the kitten or learn to rollerskate!
