Acorn Farm, a rural estate in central South Carolina, combines the best characteristics of a traditional Southern sporting property in the heart of horse country with sophisticated architecture and state-of-the-art construction and amenities. Entering from the custom ironwork gates on Sumter Highway, one approaches the main residence via a three-quarter mile long driveway, beautifully landscaped. The home is tasteful cedar-clad five bedroom, eight bath, approximately ten thousand square foot retreat inspired by the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. It is both grand in scale and charmingly casual with brown floor molding and wall paneling made of long-leaf heart pine reclaimed from historic buildings and with modern Brazilian cherry floors throughout. The entry hall with grand staircase and balcony leads to the great room and dining area which have double-height ceilings and clerestory windows that bathe the formal rooms in light and provide spectacular views of the ponds and property. The ground floor master suite overlooks the water and has two dressing rooms and two large baths. The huge main kitchen has a center island with breakfast bar, a professional-grade range, custom-made cabinetry, stainless steel countertops, and the highest quality appliances. There are two pantries, a silver closet, another bedroom and bath, a mudroom/laundry, a sunroom opening onto a patio and a den on the ground floor. The second floor consists of three bedrooms, each with its own walk-in closet and en suite bath, a spacious sitting room and kitchen. The largest second floor bedroom has a private balcony and all have gorgeous views of the property and ponds. The enormous finished basement, with its own bath and attached garage entry, has a home theater, a 5,000 bottle wine cellar, and room for a home gym, pool table, ping pong table and ample storage. A wood-paneled elevator connects the three floors of the main residence. About a half mile from the main house is the utility building/barn, which houses a large office, a kitchen, two full baths, a walk-in refrigerator/game cooler, workshop and large storage rooms. The main room in this building has a double-height ceiling and roll-up doors, making it suitable for wither large-scale informal entertaining or a working barn. Behind the utility room are equipment sheds, a tool shed, a quail house, chicken coop and pump house. Closer to the main entrance is a three bedroom, two bath guest or caretaker?s cottage with a covered front porch and two-acre, fully fenced rear garden and 6-run dog kennel. Whether used as a country retreat or a full-time residence, Acorn Farm is a unique property to be enjoyed now and for generations to come.
