A truly superb location with a park like setting! Located at the base of Paris Mountain, this home is perfectly situated on a large, level almost 2 acre lot. The mature landscaping was professionally designed and features numerous hardwood trees, shrubs and flowers. This oasis is located only minutes from award winning downtown Greenville, Cherrydale shopping, Furman University, the Swamp Rabbit Trail and even the thriving city of Travelers Rest! From the minute you pull in the driveway the quality of this unique home will impress. The extensive driveway is covered in beautiful high end pavers and there are numerous flagstone walkways, stone retaining walls and statues (some can remain). As you enter the house on the flagstone covered porch the unique, beautiful front door beckons you inside. The door is truly remarkable and one of a kind, it even has a speakeasy opening! As you enter the foyer the soaring octagon shaped ceiling with gorgeous rich beam detail above the wrought iron stairway will catch your eye. The walls are finished with venetian plaster detail and the floors are tile with a unique medallion in the center. The Great Room will wow you with the large space and gorgeous details. The 30' soaring ceiling is adorned with stained beams, the windows are plentiful and have detailing in the grids that bring out the European flavor of the home and allow ample natural light throughout. There is a gas burning fireplace with stone mantle and hearth going all the way to the ceiling, giving the room a warm and cozy mountain lodge feel. There are also built in book shelves and gorgeous iron chandeliers. The dining room is just off this room making for a great entertaining space. From the dining room is the covered deck so you can enjoy the private backyard retreat. There are lush grounds surrounded by a stone retaining wall. From there the remainder of the lot has been left natural and is easy to maintain. There is a storage house with the same detailing of the main house and could be a perfect playhouse, future pool house, painters studio or extra storage. Back in the house, the kitchen is off the dining room and features gorgeous granite counter tops with tile backsplash, stainless steel appliances, walk in pantry, built in china cabinet, custom stained cabinets and a breakfast area with built in desk and shelves.
