In early 1815 General Andrew Jackson had just defeated the British in the Battle of New Orleans to end the War of 1812 when Charlotte Ann Allston started construction of a new home for her family in Georgetown, South Carolina. The house at 422 Prince Street would become the home of her son, Robert, a West Point graduate that would serve several years in the State Senate before becoming Governor of the State of South Carolina in 1856. The home was periodically updated and expanded including the addition of the second floor plus the sunroom beginning in 1899. While maintaining the original Colonial style construction and wood floors the home seamlessly transitions from Colonial to Modern in the kitchen and baths. This wonderful home is being sold fully furnished with museum quality furnishings throughout. This total property consists of two large lots combined into a classic southern setting. The original Heart of Pine floors have been handsomely restored and serve as the platform for each magnificent room. In the 1890s the entrance was opened and expanded to allow easy access to the two parlors with the comfort of the warm fireplace in each. The formal dining room also has a cozy fireplace and opens to the kitchen and a butlerâ€™s pantry. The Gentlemanâ€™s quarters are lined with book cases where you can escape into a great novel. A 300 year old Heart of Pine Island in the center of the kitchen provides the transition to the modern kitchen and itâ€™s 6-burner gas range, an antique sink found in a farmhouse in Scotland, marble countertops and double French doors that lead to the Botanical Gardens. On the second floor the Master bedroom wing encompasses the entire west side of the home. A warm fireplace welcomes you into the large sitting parlor of the Master wing where you can read or discuss the dayâ€™s activities. As you retire to the Master bedroom you soak in the rich history of over two hundred years then transition to the ultimate modern Master bath with large twin vanities, a clawfoot tub and walk in shower. The two guest bedrooms are equally luxurious adorned with amazing antique furnishings and comfortable bedding with in-suite private baths and a view that overlooks the lush Gardens. Three classic southern porches provide the perfect opportunity to sit and greet friends and neighbors out for an evening walk or just sit and enjoy the beauty of the expansive Gardens. The classically designed Gardens include a series of interconnecting formal Garden rooms that are planted seasonally with low maintenance traditional local trees and shrubs. The Women at the Well statue chiseled in fine marble and surrounded by Blue Stone stepping stones is the center piece of the Gardens. On the grounds there are three event areas including: The Oval Garden which is surrounded by South Carolina Palmetto trees, The Square Garden which is edged with local shrubs and the large east lawn lined with spreading Angel Live Oaks trees which are adorned with Spanish Moss.
