--- Sought-after Columbia location ---
Tastefully remodeled historic home is within minutes walk or short drive to anywhere you want to be in Columbia.

Only steps to extensive paved Riverwalk trail system that provides miles of trails along 3 Columbia rivers.

Massive new deck wraps around an enormous tree, accented with festive lighting-- creates an unforgettable ambiance for your & your family & friends.

Luxury is the theme of this remodel - a heated seat bidet awaits you!

Fenced yard.

The space
The tastefully renovated historic home is in the middle of Columbia's attractions, only a few minutes walk or drive to most everything in Columbia! The home was first built around 1899 for families of workers in the textile mill across the river. The home has been tastefully updated and brought up to modern code. The home’s warmness and well thought out decor puts an ear-to-ear smile on everyone who steps foot in the door; modern convenience meets old-world charm.

You are only steps away from the miles of paved Columbia Riverwalk walking, tubing and biking trails - enjoy nature and the crackling river racing by you…. Tubing and kayak trips originate and end 2 blocks from the house.

The house comfortably sleeps 4 with two beds but does have two ottoman pullouts that could accommodate two more: 14" memory foam mattresses: king in master and queen in 2nd bedroom. Single pullout memory foam ottomans in 2nd bedroom & living room. Charming 120 yr old home nicely renovated to provide more amenities and comfort, with hardwoods throughout and Travertine tile in bathrooms. Smart TVs with cable TV provide your channels. High speed Wifi provided. Built in USB ports are plentiful – in the walls, recliners and end tables. Two bedrooms upstairs; kitchen, living room and eat in bar downstairs. Bathroom on each level. Experience the luxury of a bidet!

As you enter the LIVING ROOM a whitewashed knotty wood accent wall greets you and warmly invites you into the comfortable living area. Tall ceilings with new ceiling fans in all rooms. This accent wall sets the stage for the home’s décor….the wonderful discoveries are just beginning. Built in stereo system...just bring your Bluetooth and your playlist. Sit at the new granite eat-in bar and watch a large TV while conversing with those in the kitchen. Leather couches, smart TVs, along with fast internet and your favorite sports and normal channels make your stay almost as comfy as being at home. Built in USB charging station at the bar. New luxury power leather sofa as well as two power leather recliners with convenient USB ports. A single sleeper ottoman pulls out into sleeper.

Massive trees provide shade for your OUTDOOR enjoyment….. trees that saw Sherman’s cannon balls flying overhead in the sky toward Columbia during the Civil war. Home is designed for outdoor fun with a HUGE new deck and two covered porches. Deck extends the main living by 400 feet and stylishly wraps around a massive tree so big it would take two or three to stretch their arms around it. How about a competitive game of Corn hole?

THE AREA: Within walking distance of many bars, bowling alley, restaurants in the revitalized River District. Two blocks from West Columbia Amphitheater and Riverwalk. House is steps from ~20 miles of walking and biking trails along the Saluda, Broad and Congaree rivers....a treasure so close by.. Bring your fishing rods, float tubes and bikes. Only minutes to most anywhere in Columbia you could want to be. One block away is a state-of-the art new children’s park.

BEDROOMS: Upstairs boast original 120 yr old refinished hardwood floors. Both bedrooms are on the 2nd level. Master bedroom has a new king 14in luxury memory foam mattress with a whitewashed headboard, going along with the theme of the house. 42in smart wall mounted TV. A comfortable recliner awaits you in your master so you can get away (or sleep!) from the excitement downstairs. 2nd bedroom has a new queen 14in luxury memory foam mattress and also has a sleeper ottoman that folds out to a single memory foam comfy sleeper. Linens are provided for full beds, but not for pullout beds.

BATHROOMs: Both bathrooms feature rich Italian Travertine floor tile……no expense sparred here. Upstairs bathroom features a heated bidet toilet seat with dual washing jets and dryer (a treat to experience). You will never want to sit on a cold toilet seat again! Downstairs bathroom has tub/shower and pedestal sink with modern toilet. Hair dryer, ample towels, hand towels wash cloths and washer and dryer are provided.
Kitchen: Shiny new stainless-steel kitchen appliances include a new microwave, stove and fridge with icemaker. Fully stocked with pots, utensils, glasses (yes wine glasses too!), coffee mugs, wine opener, pitchers, spatulas, spice rack, blender, colander, plates, bowls, etc will make FOOD and beverages the center of your gathering. A Keurig coffee pot awaits you ...
be sure to bring your favorite K-cups. Bright kitchen with recessed lighting and pendent lights above the granite eat-in bar. An outdoor charcole grill is provided; grilling utensils are provided.

OUTDOORs: The covered back porch connects to a 400 sq foot deck that stretches onward and wraps majestically around huge tree. Decorative white festive lights drape along the top of the large deck and create a fun and memorable experience and is ideal for an outdoor gathering, relaxing, picnics, etc. A covered front porch greets you as you step up two steps to enter the home. A cornhole set is available for the challenge and the huge deck is the perfect place to set it up for hours of fun. Parking: Bring you spare cars, boats or RVs as there is ample space for you and your guest. Parking is available in front and rear oh house and will accommodate boat parking and several cars, RV, etc. Parking at rear of home is provided by a private asphalt lot accommodating several cars.
