Description

Check out the Virtual Tour here!

Steeped in history and surrounded by ancient trees dripping in Spanish moss, this home was built in 1832 by Jonathan Miller, one of Aiken County, South Carolina’s most successful planters and descendant of early Swiss settler Michael Meyer. 

Miller, who lived to be 100, had this beautiful home with 11-foot ceilings constructed from timber cut from his swamp for his new bride, Lisa Lawton, who died only six months after they were married. 

Dr. Horatio Ross Cook bought the home in 1842 after he married Jonathan Miller’s sister, Helena Holmes Meyer Miller, and live here until his death in 1886. Dr, Cook practiced medicine in a small, one-room building behind the house when he was not riding around Beech Island making house calls.

Inside the home, you’ll enjoy cooking Sunday dinners on your 6-burner, 2-oven commercial stove surrounded by windows, granite countertops & two sinks. Nestle into your favorite chair in the open keeping room, complete with a wood-burning stove, antique mantle & stone floor entry.  Or step through the side door to the screened-in porch & listen to the birds singing or watch the horses play in the pasture.

A 9’ tall glass-paneled door leads into the dining room where you’ll display your family heirlooms in two built-in china cabinets, separated by a fireplace. Just a few steps away, you’ll appreciate the main floor laundry/mudroom with extensive storage.

Relax with friends in the living room, gathered around the wood stove on a cool evening, or enjoying a summer breeze on the front porch just outside.

Along with a full bath, a guest bedroom & master suite complete the lower level, both honoring the history of the home with fully restored ceilings, fireplaces, & accent walls displaying original wood. Retreat to your master suite & take a relaxing steam shower or browse through your walk-in closet with glass-paneled doors from both the main bedroom & the bathroom.

A stroll up the staircase of the original wood steps leads you to a full bathroom, an office, and another bedroom. The expansive hallway is the perfect place to sneak away with your favorite book as you curl up on a comfy love seat next to the floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the front lawn.

Your horses will love the 6-stall barn, built for maximum ventilation & free access to move between the stalls and the pasture. A center aisle with sliding doors on both ends keeps hay close for convenient feeding, and the upstairs loft, with hay elevator included, provides enough space to store an entire semi-trailer of hay. A grain room, tack room, and outside wash area complete the perfect place for your horses to call home.

Also included on the 20-acre property is a 45×65 workshop complete with heat/air, 2 overhead doors, bathroom, office, & new LED lighting that sits on 1.5 acres of commercially zoned property. A paint booth and air compressor are available for additional purchase. The shop is currently used as a classic car restoration business but is suitable for many home-based businesses or hobbies.

Conveniently located near Augusta, North Augusta, Aiken, SRS, and Ft. Gordon, the charm and history of South Slope awaits you.
