This historic homesite estate just outside the city of Orangeburg, SC features a large two-story plantation style home, a secondary/guest home, three large sheds, an in-ground swimming pool, beautiful mature live oaks, approximately 19 acres of open partially fenced pasture, mature pine woods, open field with powerline, mature hardwoods, and frontage along the Edisto River, for a combined total of just over 84 acres. This private estate is located on the southwest edge of Orangeburg, on the North Fork of the Edisto River, and has road frontage on Neeses Hwy / SC Hwy 4.
The 4,355 s.f. (2,800 1st floor, 1,555 2nd floor) home was originally built around the year 1900 and features 6 bedrooms (3 upstairs, 3 downstairs) and 2.5 bathrooms (1.5 downstairs, 1 upstairs). It has 12 ft ceilings throughout, a large dining room, living room, and kitchen area, a beautiful foyer and large staircase, an office, laundry room, large porches, a fireplace, a carport, and a basketball court. You can conveniently walk on a paved walkway to the fenced pool area and then continue along to the guest house. The second house is approximately 1,000 s.f. and was built in 2003 and features one large master bedroom, two full bathrooms, an office area, an open kitchen/den area with fireplace, laundry room, porches, and covered carport.
There are three large sheds and two small sheds used for various types of equipment storage and shelter back behind the main home. The land at the front around the homesite estate is very high and dry. As you work back towards the Edisto River, the elevation gradually drops, and open fields turn to pine timber, which eventually goes to hardwoods, then to hardwood swamps and sloughs before you reach the river. There is a beautiful river frontage here, which you currently must walk or ride an ATV to get to by land. The nice combination of uplands and lowlands provides a good opportunity for hunting and recreation, with great habitat for deer, duck, and turkey hunting, as well as fishing on the river.
