Description

Own a piece of history in this beautiful Victorian home located in historic downtown Seneca, South Carolina. This significant treasure sits on the highest point in Seneca, offering mountain views and cool evening breezes. Entertain friends and family in the spacious living areas or operate your own bed and breakfast for guests to experience late 19th century architecture and small town Southern living. Built in 1885 by Colonel J.W. Livingston and his wife, Clara Kilpatrick Livingston, who moved their family to Seneca from nearby Pendleton, this home boasts 4700 plus sq ft of ornate craftsmanship. The Livingston-Stribling House has a rich history due to J.W. Livingstons legacy as a local newspaper editor and South Carolina State Senator and due to his son-in-law, Dr. J S. Striblings general physician practice that was run out of the current master bedroom during the early 1900s. The homes over-a-century-year-old woodwork of the entrance rooms and staircase is a joy to behold. Details of the exterior include original turned columns, steep roof gables, stained glass attic transoms,1800 sq ft of wide wrap-around porches, and ornate millwork. Inside, youll find seven fireplaces, ten-to-twelve-foot ceilings, heart pine flooring, eight-foot doorways, original moldings and stairways, ornately crafted mill work, fretwork, and pocket doors. Care has been taken to preserve the Victorian character of the house during updates and restorations, which includes a new roof in 2021. Renovations have been executed in accordance with the Secretary of State's Guidelines by the Restoration of Properties on the National Register of Historic Places. With 4 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms in this 4,730 square foot home on a full one-acre parcel, you are offered a cozy home feeling while provided with plenty of space to entertain up to 100 party guests. Architect owner has worked diligently to preserve the original beauty of the home and at the same time create an environment for living and for guests. Note: Two more bathrooms can be created in large walk-in closet spaces to yield 4 suites with private bathrooms. Local zoning also allows the home to be used as a bed and breakfast. Tax breaks are available for updating historic homes or using them as a business. Parking is easy with a circular driveway and street side parking. The incredible backyard offers a barn with extra storage along with an adorable playhouse. Landscaping design is based on an heirloom plan, which incorporates traditional shade trees and varieties of trees, shrubs and blooming perennials. The backyard also boasts the only known Osage orange tree in Oconee County. Nearby Clemson University, the Blue Ridge Mountains, Lake Hartwell, Lake Keowee, and Lake Jocassee make this a wonderful destination for sports and outdoor enthusiasts. A less than two hour drive to Atlanta, Charlotte, or Asheville avails you to major airports, entertainment, shopping, and dining. This stunning Upstate South Carolina Victorian home is an extraordinary historical jewel awaiting its next chapter.
