Description

This original yet renovated gated Craftsman style home with separate Carriage House has so much charm and character that everyday will feel as if you are staying at a great bed and breakfast! As you walk up onto the oversized wrap-around porch, sipping iced tea and entertaining will come to mind for cool Spring days and warm Summer nights. Walk through the front door and you will be struck by the very elegant and wide foyer with unique architecture including original wainscoting, moldings, and an impressive one-of-a-kind "round room" with built-in seating and stained glass. The home has five fireplaces all gas ready including one in large living room and one in the large formal dining room. Unique wood cabinetry and tray ceilings throughout. Began in 1907 with so much thought and care and eventually completed in 1912, this home was designed and originally owned by businessman Tom Wheeler from Michigan who brought his family to the south to escape the colder months of Winter and early Spring and to pursue opportunities in the low country. For a home rich in such history and tradition, he had the foresight to create a very progressive floor plan with a butler's pantry, large mudroom and utility room all located off the wonderful kitchen which today has an island/bar added to it. If the walls could talk they would be filled with rich memories and wonderful experiences through the years including Mr. Wheeler's friendship with Thomas Yawkey, owner of the Boston Red Sox for 44 seasons and creator of the 3 island wildlife reserve in Georgetown, SC today . The Carriage House doors open and reveal the second 750 square foot home including bath, kitchen living room on the main level and cathedral wood ceilings with interesting rafters and beams and an upstairs bedroom loft. Both bathrooms in the main house and the Carriage House are updated. Conveniently located in the heart of picturesque historic downtown Marion where the streets are lined with trees bearing Spanish Moss so characteristic of the South and less than 1 hour from Myrtle Beach, Florence and Lake City. There is public education for students or they can attend Carolina Academy or PD Academy . Take advantage of historic Georgetown on Winyah Bay for boating, shopping and waterfront dining and take day trips to Charleston. Enjoy local activities such as hunting, fishing, wildlife, parks and Farmers Market in Marion along with restaurants and shops within walking distance of this amazing home.
