Step back in time without stepping out of style. This completely renovated 4BD/3.5BA home in downtown Seneca gives you the feeling of an old friend, but with all the modern amenities. The home dates to 1938, maybe earlier, with excellent bones and an old soul thatâs been updated with all new electrical wiring, plumbing, new architectural roof, 2 HVAC units, new blown insulation, and fresh paint in comfortable tones. If you're looking for a "wow factor", you'll find them in just about every room in this house. As you walking in the front door, you are greeted with a beautiful custom hardwood rug. The other hardwood floors are original, but the kitchen is remade for todayâs cook, baker and host, with a large handcrafted island, a coffered ceiling with wood inlay, stainless appliances, and beautiful porcelain tile reminiscent of barnwood flooring. Itâs a kitchen where youâre comfortable making casserole, sharing a bottle of wine or having late-night talks over a bowl of ice cream. Pass through the butlerâs pantry into the oversized dining room, where youâll be creating memories of special occasions and new holiday traditions. Many of the rooms have over 9 foot ceilings making the rooms feel majestic and spacious. Light spills into your new home just as it did 80 years ago, through large picture windows with much of the original leaded glass. Fireplaces, with original metal inserts and new tile framing, are the artistic focal point of many of the rooms. Although sealed and no longer functional, they resonate charming warmth. The master bedroom is on the main level with rustic beam ceilings, shiplap walls, accent fireplace, a large walk-in closet plus a wall closet. The master bathroom custom built dual sink walnut vanity is taller than the standard height and the walk in shower has beautiful riverstone flooring and a rainfall showerhead. The 2nd bedroom on the main level has window seating and storage under the large picture windows. A barn door built from the homeâs original front door slides aside to reveal your laundry room, also on the main floor. As you ascend upstairs to the other 2 bedrooms, you'll continue to be awed by the spacious room sizes, oversized walk-in closets, and full bathrooms for each bedroom. The loft can be for family board game nights or a favorite reading spot with the accent windows open for a refreshing cross-breeze. The front porch is the perfect gathering spot for lazy afternoon sweet tea on the porch swing. Downtown Seneca is an great place to live and you're within walking distance of Ram Cat Alley, where you'll enjoy amazing cuisine, night life, shopping, and street festivities like Jazz on the Alley each Thursday night. You're only minutes away from enjoying Lake Keowee, hiking in the mountains, exploring waterfalls, going to Clemson sporting events, medical offices, hospital, and so much more.
