Offered for $300,000
Custom designed home full of history and charm in the Historic District of Camden, South Carolina.
Don't let the list price fool you, this home and all of it's features would be irreplaceable at this price! The current owners have kept this home in pristine condition, but have moved forward and are ready to let a NEW family make their own memories. A 2013 appraisal for $619,000 shows you what an amazing opportunity this is!

This home is registered with the Historic Landmark Commision and, because of the Smoke House, is entitled to the King Haigler hitching post which graces Camden's finest residences. Legend has it this house was the site of he original stable for "Bloomsbury" (adjacent on Lyttleton Street). The new owners will inherit these historic landmarks as well as the plaques honoring their history . 

This private home is nestled on 1.85 acres with a natural setting of century old oaks, magnolias, camellias and pine trees making the house hidden from the road. Two entrances, one on Pine Street and one on Lyttleton, make easy access to the property. This single level home offers more than 3750 square feet of living space that includes 4 bedrooms, 3 full baths and 2 half bathrooms. Upgraded highlights include reclaimed antique lumber used throughout, high ceilings with custom crown moldings, a huge screened porch with tile floors, plus hidden custom and historic treasures around every corner! The house was planned and built by Richard Lloyd, who is one of the greatest benefactors in Camden History.

You will notice the architectural detail as soon as you walk in the front door. The solid wall of glass right in front of you draws your eyes straight through to the landscaping and patio out back. This room has endless possibilities from a living room, library, sitting room or simply a formal foyer to greet your guests. This room also makes a natural separation between the main living space to the right and the bedrooms quarters to the left. 

The Kitchen was designed for entertaining with a slide
down partition true to the southern tradition of not wanting guests to see the food being prepared. Other custom features include push through drawers accessed from both the kitchen and dining room. This is a great spot for linens or silverware. Other hidden features include a marble topped bar that passes through to the great room and a TV and equipment cabinet behind closed doors which is also accessible from two sides. Upgrades include a natural gas cook-top, stainless steel appliances and tile counters. A wall oven is just around the corner in the adjacent washroom. There is plenty of cabinet space to upgrade this to a built-in double oven. This space has a natural separation from the main kitchen and is currently where the washer and dryer are located. (Dryer ONLY included in sale). The current owners had visions of expanding the kitchen and relocating the washer/dryer into the adjacent Mud Room. The side entrance off the mud room, along with all the built in cabinets , make this a great spot to hide all the mess! 

The Foyer, great room, dining room and kitchen have an open concept perfect for entertaining. The builder thought of everything when he added the adjustable panels and pocket doors that convert this open floor plan to separate rooms for added privacy. The antique heart pine floors are original as well as the custom molding throughout. 

You will naturally be drawn into the great room that boasts cathedral ceilings and beams with custom lighting. The fireplace has natural gas logs for easy use with no mess. The park-like views are gorgeous and the natural light pours into this space. Doors off the great room, as well as the dining room, lead you to the large screened porch. Extra detail include etched in designs on the tile floors.  
Three more bedrooms are located on this side of the home. Two of the bedrooms share a Jack and Jill bathroom, each with their own vessel sink located inside the bedroom. (No waiting for someone to come out in order to brush your teeth!) These rooms also have his and her closets. The fourth bedroom has a private bath. Both bathrooms have a Tub/Shower combo and tile floors. All of the bedrooms are large enough to fit any bed size. The entire bedroom wing has Parquet floors that are historically known for the upscale appearance .

A long hallway, lined with closets, leads you to the separate bedroom quarters. The Master Bedroom is at the end of the hall for added privacy. You will love the Master Bath with huge walk in shower with rain head, double vanities and soaking tub. His-and Hers closets with bi-folding doors offer plenty of space . A "surprise room" is located just off the master bathroom. This space will suit so many needs from a nursery, sewing/craft room, exercise room or use it as an enormous dressing room/closet! The cork floors and built in shelving are extra touches. The glass door leads you to the side courtyard with built-in clothes line. Another glass door is located off the master bedroom leading to a covered side porch overlooking the backyard. This is the perfect spot to start your day with your morning cup of coffee.

A formal living room is nestled among the bedrooms with private access from the 4th bedroom. The heart of pine paneling on the walls and Parguet floors make this room cozy and welcoming. An adjacent half bath is also accessible from this room making a very easy conversion if someone wanted a second master suite. Special features include the cathedral ceilings, custom shelving and double sliding French doors leading to the side courtyard and gardens.
Just passed these gardens is the 2-car garage also accessible by a covered walkway from the front porch. The extra long garage has space set aside for tack or a work shop. An exterior back staircase leads to an unfinished studio thats just waiting to be converted into something special! Tucked away in the corner of this home site is one of this homes most unique features. The original dove-tailed log smokehouse originally belonging to "Bloomsbury" on Lyttleton Street and still stands earning this home the Historical Landmark Placard.

This home is loaded with storage space. In addition to the numerous closets and garage, you will find stairs off the foyer leading to a large unfinished basement. (There are also stairs from the outside.) A built in antique safe is among the hidden surprises throughout this house. A stand-up attic is also easily accessed from a pull down staircase in the bedroom hallway.

This property really does have endless possibilities. The owners have already gotten preapproval to subdivide a small .34 acre parcel out from the front of the land. This would be a great spot for an extra guest house or you could even sell it with very little impact on the layout of the landscaping or privacy. (Buyer to verify this information , final documents have not been recorded and not guaranteed.)
