A rare opportunity to own an original 1927 Rosenwald Schoolhouse that’s been lovingly restored and updated to a luxurious 3 bedroom 2 bath, single family home.
The ideal new homeowner will continue to oversee the preservation of this unique historical property which was originally designed by Sears Roebuck Founder; Julius Rosenwald. The Nine Mile Fork Schoolhouse is considered eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
This original Rosenwald monument has been designed to take advantage of the space within a productive yet calming flow. Twelve foot ceilings, modern appliances and a full chefs kitchen open to a cocktail bar and spacious living area, complete with two original coat closets for ample storage.
The single level open concept of the floor plan was designed and restored with future efficiency in mind. Ceiling fans keep the air circulating while stunning 6 foot windows bring in natural light for perfect east/west exposure as envisioned by Julius Rosenwald himself!
Each room is individually controlled for heat and air through a whole home Blueridge system that offers a long term warranty. The fireplace offers a unique heatilator system for wood burning – or electric logs for less clean up. The new above ground well insures fresh and unlimited water supply, and the towering trees provide enough shade for a comfortable year round climate. A recent architectural roof and professionally installed vapor barrier will also provide years of sustainability against the elements.
Best of all the Nine Mile Schoolhouse was built to last on high ground! No flood insurance required.
A spacious 20 x 10 ft screened in porch (not in sq footage), off the living room provides sunrise and sunset views with plenty of seating to enjoy coffee or cocktails in the evening.
The large Master Bedroom offers a modern bath with radiant heating and a luxurious shower. The guest bedroom has a large closet and separate bath with claw foot tub.
The third bedroom is currently set up as an office and resource room with books and art depicting Charleston, Gullah and Rosenwald movements that were an integral part of the colorful history that make up the Lowcountry.
Nestled on two acres of towering oaks draped with Spanish moss, vintage azaleas and an original raised garden, this property offers all the discreet privacy that Wadmalaw Island is known for – yet is only 14 miles from downtown Charleston, 5 miles to John’s Island, and 7.5 miles to Kiawah Island for shopping at Freshfields, Beaches, and Golfing.
The original Outhouse now serves as a productive workshop, and a spacious carport is convenient for your vehicle and lawn equipment.
Serene morning and evening walks can be taken through private paths on the property and in the adjacent woods. Don’t be surprised if a few of the neighborhood deer join you!
