Located in the Historic District of Summerville, this stately home at 131 Linwood Lane is filled with history and charm. The original home was part of the Pine Forest Inn in the 1880’s, but the current owners completed an extensive restoration and renovation in 2008/2009–taking the home down to the studs and adding 2,200 square feet to the original structure. High-end materials were used throughout the house including longleaf heart pine floors, elegant crown molding, mahogany doors and more.
The home is set back from the street, with a brick pathway leading the way to the expansive wrap-around porch. A metal roof, black shutters and mature landscaping further enhance the facade. Inside, the home has a well-designed floor plan with a great combination of formal living spaces and more casual gathering areas. A central entry foyer runs through the home, with a living room to the left and a formal dining room to the right. A brick, wood-burning fireplace, built-in bookshelves and French doors opening to the porch are some highlights of the living room, while the dining room features wainscoting and great connectivity to the kitchen. Perfect for everyday living or entertaining, the spacious chef’s kitchen is well-appointed with nice features including stainless steel appliances, granite counters, a farmhouse sink, custom cabinets, a large center island and a well-sized breakfast space.
The master bedroom suite, located downstairs, is a true retreat. It features a large bedroom and an en suite bath with granite-topped dual vanities, a soaking tub and a tiled shower. There is also a walk-in closet with custom shelving. The remaining three bedrooms are located upstairs. There is a secondary master bedroom on the second floor, with a similar en suite bath design, and two well-sized guest rooms that share an updated hallway full bath. Another highlight is the bonus room–which is the perfect spot for a media room or playroom.
In addition to the interior features of the home, there is also much to enjoy outside. In addition to the wrap-around front porch, there is also a well-sized screened porch overlooking the backyard. Just off the porch, you’ll find a large brick patio complete with a brick fireplace for those chillier evenings. The home sits on a 0.87 acre lot, so there is also a large yard with mature trees and a storage shed. Additional updates to the home include a purification system with the HVAC, tankless water heater, high pressure water pump, wired sound system with Bose speakers and new insulation.
