Unique property in Summerville's historic district on one of the town's most charming streets. Late 1800s main house (3445 sq. ft.) plus two cottages on .65 acres outlined in yellow on the last photo. Additional .050 acres w/ garage outlined in red can be purchased but not included in asking price. Property has ties to various local and national luminaries, including the Gadsden family (perhaps best known for the Gadsden "Don't Tread on Me" flag) and Atwater Kent, early 20th century radio manufacturing mogul and owner of the Betsy Ross house, who also made the world's first air-to-ground telephone call to his wife in 1925. Main house features high ceilings, seven fireplaces, pressed glass windows, chair rail moldings, and gleaming heart pine floors. The "shotgun-style" architecture offers a stunning view from the front door straight through to the back door. First-floor rooms include living room, library, expansive hallway, dining room, kitchen with built-in breakfast nook and beamed ceiling, three bedrooms with three full bathrooms (including master suite), large laundry room (formerly butler's room), den with spiral staircase, sunroom with hot tub. Second-floor rooms include a bonus room, bathroom, bedroom with french-door window overlooking the back yard, and ample attic space. Has a wraparound porch with a huge deck that overlooks the gazebo and historic gardens, with diverse growth such as azaleas, magnolias, camellias and majestic oaks and pines, providing a scenic and fragrant setting for outdoor gatherings. Beautiful side cottage is 3 bedroom/2 bath home with 1277 square feet and covered front porch (current tenant would love to stay but month to month lease!). Rear cottage (formerly housekeeping quarters) has 538 square feet with three rooms and a full bath. Both cottages offer options for rental income or a residence for extended family. You will not find another property in Summerville like this one. Ask your agent for 3d and video tour. Home inspection done and home/cottages under termite bond. Home sold as is and will need updating $$$. Solid older home waiting for its new owner! Home and two cottages are on one tax map so you are not paying triple taxes on the two cottages if owner occupied!!!! Rental income potential with cottages fixed up is $1k for smaller 2k for larger. Lot next door can be purchased and is on separate tax map 137-05-05-018 but not for sale until we secure a buyer for main home and giving them the first right to purchase. This is an opportunity to own something very special at a price that allows you to have equity when work is put in! Home inspected and sold as is. Cash or renovation loan for financing is the best option.
