Colonial, Detached - Georgetown, SC
Seldom does the opportunity arise to own a piece of history. 201 King Street was built in the early 1900's and has seen many uses in it's time; from a boarding house to a law office and once again as a family home. This 4 bedroom 3.5 bath residence went through a complete renovation 10 years ago. The owner was able to maintain the historic ambiance of home, while bringing the interior features up to current standards. For example, period lighting and hardware were used throughout. In addition, the original oak and pine flooring were restored to their past beauty. Modern transitions include updated electrical, plumbing, heating and air, sheetrock and insulation. The Master bath was updated to include a whirlpool tub and an oversized walk-in shower. The large downstairs bedroom offers a full bath and would be perfect for guest or the in-laws. The kitchen now offers stainless steel appliances and granite countertops, along with a breakfast nook. The elegant dining room has abundant space for a table with seating for 10. A unique feature is an original china closet within this area. The third floor of this home was added to provide space for exercising or to become a play room for children. The owner was able to build a 2 car garage and driveway providing parking space for 4 vehicles. The space above the garage could be used as an office, a music room or for additional storage. The best feature of the home isn't located on the inside. It's the spacious wraparound porch. Here you'll enjoy rocking chairs on a spring afternoon or summertime cocktails with friends. In case you're wondering; the porch ceiling is painted a pale blue color for good reason. Many folks believe it's a soothing color that also helps keep away bees and wasp. The true southern tradition dictates that this color protects the home and occupants from "haints" or bad "spirits". Think twice before using another color. If location is important to you, you'll be thrilled with the proximity
