Located in the Historic District of Summerville, 408 Sumter Avenue is a truly stunning, must-see property. The home was built in 1830 and has been expertly preserved and updated with modern touches to make it appealing to today’s buyer.
It sits on a picturesque 0.77 acre lot that is dotted with mature trees, moss-draped oaks and mature landscaping. The home is set back from the street with a central brick pathway and white fence defining the entry. A large yard extends from the side of the house and the backyard is a truly private retreat with an expansive brick patio, spacious grassy area, flowering bushes, a carriage house and detached garage. There is a covered porch on the first floor as well as the second.
Inside, the 3,673 square foot house has a traditional floor plan. Historic features, such as original moldings, fireplaces and hardwood floors, add to the home’s character. The first floor has a formal living room, with views of the yard, along with a formal dining room with built-in storage. Both rooms have fireplaces along with multiple sets of windows. Just beyond the dining room is the kitchen and an additional sitting room. Stainless appliances and butcher block counters modernize the kitchen, while the wood-paneled sitting room and adjoining breakfast room are ideal places to gather with friends and family.
The second floor of the home has a central hallway accented with wainscoting, along with a living room which features a fireplace, traditional moldings and large windows. There are three bedrooms on the second floor. Two bedrooms have their own en suite full baths, while the other has a powder room. The third floor features two additional bedrooms with a shared full bath with a clawfoot tub.
