Castle-style house in South Carolina to be auctioned A castle-style manor home surrounded by ten acres of private, wooded land and situated at the end of a winding drive in Travelers Rest, S.C., will be sold at auction March 21 by Poinsett Auction.
this room is a guest bedroom, with claw-foot tub and pedestal sink. On the same level is a dining room with a fireplace and step-down balcony.
Behind the dining room is a 27-foot galley kitchen, the ideal place to enjoy summer barbecues, the spring landscaping and crisp, clear winter night skies. The pewter-glazed, Mission-style cabinets all have European hinges and knobs, and the floors are Australian cypress. Storage space is more than ample. Nearby there is access to a crenulated, walled patio that rests atop the rounded library below.
The two-car, oversize garage offers direct entrance to the kitchen, via a drive that splits off from the main drive (allowing for back door entry). The circular stairs in the tower provide a second access, to the upper level, where a winding staircase leads to a secluded study and then to two bedrooms connected by a shared bathroom. Every detail has been planned, to give the home a consistent and unifying design.
Quality features abound, such as the scroll-sawn trim along every hardwood step, the oversize architectural shingles, copper flashing, custom Masonry chimney, the Andersen windows fitted with diamond grilles and pair of 600-pound corbels carved from Indiana limestone. These tell the story of a masterfully constructed home meant for practical living and showcasing architectural craftsmanship.
The house is presently occupied and tastefully furnished. The furnishings, in fact, may be included in a negotiable separate purchase. The address of the home is 875 White Horse Road Ext., in Travelers Rest, S.C.
