Residential Property, Bungalow/Cottage - Aiken, SC
Here's a rare opportunity to acquire one of Aiken's historic Winter Colony cottages with stables located downtown near the Hitchcock Woods. In the 1920's, the noted author and sportsman, Harry Worcester Smith, was a frequent guest of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hitchcock. In 1927, Mrs. Hitchcock offered him the use of one of her guest cottages and asked him to give the place a name. Mr. Smith recounted the incident in “Life and Sport in Aiken” and, noting that he was surrounded by the homes of “multi-millionaires,” called the modest cottage “Woolworth House. Everything five and ten cents.” Thereafter, Mr. Smith spent many winters at Woolworth House where he hosted a “Sportsman's Breakfast” every Sunday morning. In recent years, this delightful home was renovated and updated and incudes a three stall barn and paddocks.
