Description

This stunning Summerville estate sits on a beautiful azalea-filled hillside on 1.5 acres in the historic district. It is one of the most idyllic settings in the entire Charleston area. Truly a one of a kind property, the Edward Cates House is listed as contributing to the Summerville Historic District on the National Register of Historic Places. The front portion of the home was built circa 1878 and a massive addition was completed by the current owners. With grand porches featuring Summerville pickets and landscaping designed by Robert Chestnut, the exterior is as impressive as the interior of the almost 6500 SF residence. Enter the home through beautiful custom designed Douglas Fir doors to find an enchanting blend of unique woodwork and paneling, four gas log fireplaces, gorgeoushardwood floors, intricate details, and large rooms, with many opening onto side and back porches. The renovated kitchen features a custom made banquette, baking center with warming drawer, wine cooler, ice machine, Subzero refrigerator, and a 6-burner Viking gas range. The expansive master bedroom suite is located on the first level with doors opening to an inviting back porch overlooking a garden area with lemon, lime, apple, peach and mandarin orange trees plus a beautiful private wooded area. Four large bedrooms upstairs complete the main section of the home. A breezeway from the main section to the garage leads to an upstairs large game room with full bath, which could be used as a guest suite. Additional features include a copper roof, a deep well irrigation system, ADT security and video cameras, hardy plank siding, working hurricane shutters, and a dedicated outlet to the back porch where an outdoor kitchen with existing gas line could be added near the existing covered porch and firepit area. Landscape lighting with dual zones and controls for setting coverage times. Potential Bed and Breakfast opportunity. You must put eyes on this property to fully appreciate how special it is.
