WALTERBORO, THE ORANGE GROVE PLACE!
“A True Southern Lowcountry Lady!”
By Glenn Arnette, lll
It is a shame when something beautiful in real estate goes on the market for sale, but when a sale offers opportunities for the Coastal Community Foundation to distribute funds to early childhood literacy and other community programs, you fully understand the needs.
Located on Wichman Street in Walterboro, South Carolina, this grand property offers the buyer a tree lined avenue the length of a football field as your grand “Southern” entrance, 50 ancient Live Oaks on 7.3 acres completely landscaped and three charming guest cottages providing an additional 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. Then you have the main house, Orange Grove Place.
Designed in American Federal Architecture and built in 1823, this completely restored two story home is almost “Gone With The Wind”. There are 6091 square feet of “magnificence in antebellum” including a wrap around veranda and is completely furnished in beautiful antiques, as if it is a work of art. There are 12 foot ceilings and twelve rooms including 4 bedrooms and 4.5 baths, a two car garage and gated porte-cochere.
Someone will purchase this wonderful property and live in a very historical community known as Walterboro, South Carolina. You will find all of the excitement of a large city, but live in a small village type town where “people are real people and they speak Southern English”. You are located very close to Beaufort and only 50 minutes from Charleston, South Carolina. This is a situation where “you can have your cake and eat it too!” This perfect location is just plain LOWCOUNTRY, and that stands for “OH YES, WE WON THE WAR. We just let those Northern people think they did!” LOL
So, here is your opportunity to own a real part of history in a wonderful town that captures the life of the real South. If you found anything comparable to Orange Grove Place in Charleston you would pay millions, but now you can have it as your personal residence for 1.25 million. It sounds like a lot of money is this economy, but truly the value is real and worth every penny. Step up to the plate and call Calbert Huffines at 843-549-6654 or go to the computer and type:
Call me when you buy it. I will come for a visit!
By-the-way, this is only the beginning of what you can expect when you discover this wonderful piece of property. I only wish! My evening there was in a cocktail setting, with candles and special lighting throughout the house, gardens and entrance. The food was delicious and served on the patio overlooking the garden and fountain in the back. The people were dressed and they were so enchanting and having the time of their life. I pretended it was the filming of a movie and I was the star! Wrong! The Orange Grove was the real star, as it should be and the trees surrounding the property are “dripping with moss”. Funny, when I was in college many years ago my dorm was called Orange Hall and we had a special event known as the Orange Grove. Is that telling me something?
South Carolina you make me proud! Thank you for bringing me back to my roots and letting me relive some of my past!
