Property Description

Location, Curb Appeal, and Craftmanship- this 1834 Southern estate sits on 2 acres in the heart of downtown Greenville. The third oldest residence in town, locals affectionately refer to the home as the “Beattie House.” Meticulously transformed in 2017 from an event space and Women’s Club, into a residence, the current owners have spent three years lovingly restoring the home to its former beauty; while incorporating all of the modern conveniences one would expect. Owners and guests are greeted by the original wrought iron gate with a stunning 25’ architectural arch that is flanked by exquisite stone pillars. You will notice covered and convenient parking is plentiful as you fully embrace the spectacular view of a custom covered front porch with ornate 14’ Italianate columns surrounded by nearly an acre of lush fescue lawn; offering the ideal setting for hosting birthday and graduation parties, fundraisers, watching an outdoor movie with neighbors, or to simply enjoy the privacy while breathing in the park-like atmosphere. Walking distance from Main Street, Bon Secours Arena, Stone Avenue boutiques, McPherson Park and Harris Teeter, this coveted location is second to none! The discerning buyer is met with 100 year old trees providing shade and beauty. Large groupings of hydrangeas, mature camilas, tea olives, azaleas and crepe myrtles further elevate the overall aesthetic of the yard. Original brick walkways, outdoor seating areas and a two story treehouse add to the property’s charm. This 500 sq ft structure could easily be utilized as an office or art studio in addition to providing hours of good old fashioned fun for children and grandchildren alike. After a zip line exit brings you back to the yard, a custom garden gate leads to an outdoor eating area surrounded by two fire pits and the sounds of nature. The sweet smell of confederate jasmine engulfs the air and heightens senses as you find your way back to the front of the home. A double wooden original door welcomes you into the stunning entryway complete with tall ceilings, heavy moulding, and detailed wainscoting. The highlight of this grand foyer is a custom hand carved heart of pine wooden stairway that will literally take your breath away. To the left is a spacious dining room, replete with a gorgeous 5’ chandelier, sitting area, original fireplace and custom wall to ceiling wine cabinet. Neutral designer paint is seen throughout the home, allowing the architectural details to shine while the modern lighting and updated decor allows visitors to instantly feel at home. Past the dining area is a family room, which boasts 6’ tall windows. From either of these areas, one can access the impressive chefs kitchen with marble island, 60’ Italian range and 48’ refrigerator/freezer combo; providing the perfect spot to gather with family and friends. Ceramic farm sink, built in microwave and two Miele dishwashers further ensure functionality of the space. Flow for entertaining continues outside of the kitchen onto the 800’ screened porch where one can enjoy dinner, a drink at the bar or watch a game on the TV with family and friends. Back inside and down the wide hallway, a set of 10’ hand carved doors with original hinges from the 1800s leads you into the expansive library. Custom built in with ladder further elevates this space. The luxurious master suite completes this first level; a private oasis of tall ceilings, natural light streaming through the 6’ original windows, marble fireplace, walk-in closet, full bathroom with glass shower, separate soaking tub area and private access to the screened porch. The second floor of the home is just as impressive as the first- hardwood stairs guiding the way towards an entire wall of windows which boasts tons of natural light penetrating the upstairs landing; graciously illuminating the gorgeous heart pine floors. Four large bedrooms and two full bathrooms complete this space.
