The Historic Thomas Bolem House

  • $685,000


Imagine owning a truly unique home. Perfect for Primary Residence or Secondary Investment Property (or both) with fabulous proven cash flow and wonderful guest comments about  The Thomas Bolem House. Extensive documented rehab, resulting in a total transformation from behind the walls out, including taking the house back to its bones and discovering 4 beautiful fireplaces (not simply a cosmetic redo). Only thing remaining is one of the three roofs (two replaced last year) and the seller is willing to give the buyer a CASH rebate at closing for upkeep of the third roof. During the renovation, everything needed for today’s lifestyle, including modern appliances and updated baths, were carefully though out. Home highlights include two breezy piazzas for relaxing while you watch life on Prince Street meander by.  Gourmet kitchen has a country french flair with stainless appliances, huge island with soapstone-type finish,8 gas burners/2 griddles, warming drawer, wine cooler and quick access to back sunroom/mudroom in addition to the yard for al fresco dining. A large dining room and flowing rooms on the first level make entertaining a delight. Master bedroom has access to the 2nd floor outdoor piazza and sitting or game room. other bedrooms each have a unique theme. The Historic ‘Thomas Bolem’ House (circa 1729) was the house for recertification of town lots/deeds in the 1730s. The South Carolina Gazette speaks of this event. 300 years of history reside within her walls. It is also the oldest house in Georgetown and one of the oldest ‘once a tavern’ structures still standing in South Carolina. The back yard is unique for the historic district in that it is extra long and includes a very large drain. The home is conveniently located just steps away from coffeehouses, restaurants, shopping, a repertory theater, and even an ice cream and candy shop, 2 Marinas, and all Harborwalk has to offer. The Thomas Bolem House currently has a ‘5-star’ rating with very satisfied and repeat guests through its VRBO program. The home is on the National Register of Historic Places and welcomed over 200 guests during the Georgetown Co0unty Museum Yuletide Home Tour. It was also planned to be featured on the annual Georgetown Plantation Tour – canceled due to Covid. The beaches and dining of Pawleys Island are only 11 miles away and Charleston a little more than an hour south. What else could you ask for in the Lowcountry?
