If you’re interested in surrounding yourself in South Carolina history, this Camden home might be for you.
A two-story, Colonial-style home in historic Camden at 102 Greene St. was recently listed for $899,000 by Deborah Hollings with Coldwell Banker Realty.
The home was built by the Trott family in 1924 and the second owners bought it in 1938 and updated it. The current owners bought it in 1980.
Camden was founded in 1730 as a trading post for the merchants of Charleston and was involved in the Revolutionary War. The house was built during the period when Camden became known as a winter colony for wealthy northerners.
The 4,760 square-foot home on 1.4 acres features a foyer — ideal for entertaining — with gleaming hardwood floors that lead to elegant living and dining rooms with two fireplaces, high ceilings, built-in book cases and a wet bar.
The large sunroom has wall-to-wall sisal wool carpet, custom Pella windows and floor to ceiling casement windows that provide spectacular views of the surrounding garden and palm trees.
The home’s modern kitchen offers multiple features, including a Thermador suite of appliances, custom soft-return drawers and cabinets, quartzite counters, Italian glass backsplash, a large center island, glass cabinets, wide heart-of-pine floors and an adjacent mudroom with side entrance and control of the interior and exterior sound system.
The three large bedrooms upstairs each have a private bathroom. A Whirlpool spa is included with the main bedroom, along with a bay window glass shower, white basket were marble floor and an adjacent office.
A large dressing room and multiple closets, two of which are cedar-lined, are in the second primary bedroom.
The lower level addition has a family room with a second full kitchen, pecky cypress paneling, wet-bar and a greenhouse dining area that leads to a deck overlooking a woodland preserve with a pond and access to a walled garden terrace with a fountain.
