Clanmore, A Unique Stucco Home with a Civil War Past!

8126 State Highway 215N, Blair, SC 29015, USA
$95,000

Description

In 1845, John Christopher Columbus Feaster built this home with his contractor, William Longergan from neighboring Charlotte, NC. They made the bricks on site and used the heart pine in the interior from trees felled on the property. The house has no wood frame….it is completely supported by the stuccoed brick walls and the stone foundation. During the Civil War, General Kilpatrick and his Union soldiers stormed the house and tore up all the new fancy dresses (among other things) that belonged to the owner’s niece, Lula. Then they threw a torch onto the staircase before they rode away. Lula grabbed the torch and threw it outside. She then extinguished the flames inside. The next wave of Union soldiers saw that the house had not burned so they also attempted to set it ablaze, however, again, Lula thwarted their efforts. I guess she was really mad about those dresses! He never returned and the house still stands today…and there, on the staircase, sure enough, a burned area remains! The Feasters left the house during the war and Confederate Major Charles W. Faucette Sr, of Winnsboro, SC bought the house in 1868. It has remained in the Faucette family ever since. We think the home was renovated to be more Greek Revival in the 1920s-1940s era. The brick exterior walls were covered by stucco as well as the 22” columns. How this house has survived in such amazing condition is a mystery. Not vandalized. Has water, septic tank and at least partial wiring. The floors are in great shape. The roof doesn’t leak. The windows and wavy glass are all in place. Original trim, mantles, doors, and hardware! The 20+/- acres are graced with deer and turkey who live among the Pines, Post Oaks, Magnolias, Pecans and Crepe Myrtles. Two large pastures are already cleared, just in case you’d like to bring your horses.
