Let me take you back...to a simpler place and time. This gorgeous Victorian style estate exudes all that you could want in peace and tranquility. Nestled on 2.4 acres, this exquisite historical masterpiece was originally built in 1887 and was the first parsonage of First Presbyterian Church. Over the years, this home has undergone loving restorations and renovations, while managing to retain some of the original details along side modern luxuries. Driving past the old stone wall out front, you immediately begin to recognize that this is no ordinary place. Turning onto the gravel drive, you are warmly greeted by a gentle breeze and the calming salute of mature cedars, along with a 2 car detached carriage house garage w/storage loft. As you walk up towards the front door, you will find yourself immersed in thought as your eyes fixate on a marvelous front wrap around porch that boasts of "Haight Blue" bead board ceilings and surrounded by mature, professional landscaping. Up the steps, your eyes will be drawn to a magnificently sealed and stained hardwood front door. Once inside and standing in the huge foyer, your eyes are drawn to years gone by, with original wide board, "heart of pine" hardwoods, bead board wainscoting & hand blown glass panels. Continuing on the main level, you will find an array of expansive formal dining rooms, (2) spacious family rooms(one being used as an office), a casual breakfast room with built in china hutch and a master bedroom with en suite bath. All of these rooms currently have stunning, non-working fireplaces and spectacular mantels. The renovated kitchen boasts of hand selected granite counter tops, custom cherry cabinets, Sub-zero refrigeration and a Thermadore stainless steel gas range with convection oven and heating lamps for the stove. Heading upstairs, you will start up an original staircase with hardwood treads and end begin your tour of the upstairs living quarters. There are 4 spacious and charming bedrooms, each with their own bit of character. Two of the bedrooms share a bathroom, while 2 other bedrooms are en suite and 1 could be considered as a second master. there is also walk in storage, tons of closets and a large, closet style walk in laundry room with sink. Heading back downstairs and out the back door, you will notice that the front and back doors align so that when open at the same time, a gentle breeze moves through the home and fills the house with springtime flowers from the garden. Outside on the back porch or picket-fenced brick paved patio, you can sit and enjoy the delight of birds singing, all the while enjoying cooler temperatures and splendid sunrises or sunsets. Be entertained by extraordinary family occasions and peace of mind in this spectacular, historical showpiece, deeply tied into Fountain Inn's history. YOUR MOMENT IN TIME AWAITS YOU!
