A stunning 1930’s Spanish Colonial in the heart of the Hamptons, Sumter’s fabulous Historic District where boulevards are lined with beautiful stately period homes and estates, and within walking distance of a revitalized downtown with its boutique shopping and 5 star restaurants and hotels. Known in its heyday as the Hollywood House, this fabulous home has been completely restored. This home boasts exquisite crown moulding throughout with 13 foot ceilings; beautiful arches carried throughout the house in its windows, doorways, and porches; and wonderful framed glass doors, windows and transoms throughout. New plumbing, electrical wiring, roof, on-demand hot water, walls, hardwood and tiled floors, a complete redo.
Recently installed 3 ton ac upstairs and 5 ton Carrier downstairs both under current maintenance contract with top of the line HEPA COVID filtration. The home has a beautiful, spacious modernized kitchen with all new GE Cafe appliances with copper accents and granite countertops.
The current owners have updated the home’s interior by completely repainting all rooms; adding new light fixtures; adding new top-of-the-line Minka ceiling fans in all rooms and side porch (8); new bathroom fixtures and Pottery Barn hardware in all bathrooms and powder room; have made operational two beautiful huge art deco gas fireplaces, one in the dining room and the other the living room, both with remote controls. These fireplaces are fabulous works of art of the era. The Saltillo tiled porches have been refinished and sealed. The side front porch has been finished with cabana curtains adding another cozy room to the house. Storm windows surround the house adding insulation for weather and sound proofing. Newly added custom bamboo shades throughout kitchen, laundry room, and living room. The fencing was designed and finished with Valspar Sealer and Stain for a a top-of-the line durable, classic, and private look. A private courtyard has been designed and finished in the same manner and added to the back of the house to improve the flow of the home into the backyard and again, add privacy. This classic little courtyard is a wonderful place to start and end the day, as is the front side patio. This fabulous home sits on a fenced acre lot with private well for irrigation, and the lawn has been beautifully revitalized and maintained using organic methodologies. The backyard hosts wonderful huge centennial trees, with a gorgeous Live Oak tree in the front yard being over 150 years and accentuated by a beautiful circular drive. In my mind, this tree is this home’s calling card. The front and side yards have been tied to a full irrigation system that is carried over into the huge fully fenced back yard with spigots for future irrigation or pool or whatever is desired, all well water, so it’s free. There is a full basement and backyard shed for tools.
A truly comfortable house with an abundance of character.
And for those not familiar with this area, you are within a couple of hours drive to beach or mountains, as well as Savannah and Charleston. Pretty perfect.
Enjoy the view.
