The Jewel of Walhalla!

408 E Main St, Walhalla, SC 29691
$499,000

Description

The Jewel of Walhalla! This 1900’s Greek Revival is best described as GRAND! There is no other way to say it! As you enter the quaint town of Walhalla it is one of the first homes to greet you with its large stately columns. The iconic southern wraparound porch reminds you of times of old. As you enter, you will notice the original front door accented with beveled glass. Each room is adorned with 12-foot ceilings and there are period custom coffered ceilings throughout. Just through the front door is the show-stopping formal living room. The details are immaculate including leaded glass bookcases and a gas-burning fireplace – there is an original hand-carved message etched into the mantel, “God rest you all that linger here” -author unknown. Just beyond the living room is a classic southern sunroom. Behind the formal living room is the large master bedroom. The formal parlor is to the right as you enter. Just beyond this formal sitting room is a grand dining room making holiday entertaining a feast for the eyes. There is a door that leads to the front porch so guests can spill out for even more entertaining. Entering through the butler’s pantry leads you to the back of the home where the kitchen is located -butcher block countertops, walk-in pantry, glass accented cabinet doors with the original bead-board, and even hosts its own fireplace.  The grand staircase leads to 4 bedrooms and an updated bathroom. The front upstairs bedroom is known for its large Christmas tree and star overlooking Main Street Walhalla during the holidays. The upstairs bathroom has a wall of cabinetry, soaking tub, and tile accents. The side porch off the back of the home has a half bath and laundry room and leads to the courtyard area.  The iconic home is situated on an acre lot that extends to the back of the block. It is a beautiful lot and even includes a she shed.  The home was constructed during a period when granite piers were the standard. You will find evidence of period craftsmanship throughout this home, from the unique specialized narrow, hardwood flooring, the custom built-in secretary, built-in cabinets with leaded glass doors, to the many hand-crafted exterior details. This is an extraordinary estate. Old homes are special but this particular home is rich in history and loved not only by the owners but the entire town of Walhalla. There is something special happening in downtown Walhalla.  It is located at the foot of the mountains, 20 minutes to Clemson University, and minutes to streams and lakes. The town recently experienced a revitalization and is attractive to many new businesses, locally-owned boutiques, restaurants, breweries, wine bar, and the Palmetto Bike Trail.
