This historic home was the original homestead of Otranto Plantation, which was established in 1678. The home was built by the Middleton family on the banks of the Goose Creek reservoir, and stands today as the oldest known structure in South Carolina. Live oaks line Basilica Avenue and provide a gorgeous canopy, reminiscent of the entrance to Boone Hall Plantation. The 1.75-acre estate is comprised of a 3-bedroom, 2.5-bath house; a separate live/work building known as the ''Cook's House;'' an in-ground pool and screened porch/workshop; plus a private dock. You'll notice Spanish influence in the architecture of the house, highlighted by white columns and the wrap-around porch. Gleaming wide-plank hardwood floors run throughout the house. High ceilings and a circular floor plan make the homefeel open and inviting. Every room has a fireplace. The kitchen is large, with ample counter space and lots of storage. The family room is loaded with windows and two French doors, to let the outside air in. There's a separate dining room and a den or third bedroom also on the first floor. The den/bedroom has an attached bathroom with a jetted tub. Two more bedrooms are upstairs, plus an office nook, cedar closet, and another 1.5 bathrooms. The roof was new in 2019; the entire outside of the house was painted in 2019; the solar panels were installed in 2008 and are owned, not leased. This home has the space you're looking for in a neighborhood with no HOA, so bring your boat and/or RV! Otranto Plantation has neighborhood play parks, tennis courts, and a kayak launch, and is convenient to I-26. This unique, one-of-a-kind property is ready for its new owner.
