The “Palm House” is a Southern Plantation style home located on the outskirts of the Town of Hemingway South Carolina. Sitting on a large 1.6 acre lot, this private home was constructed circa 1940 by a prominent physician and local business man. The main four bedroom, two and a half bathroom house with its house length front porch and wide columns is set apart from early American homes with its large, spacious rooms, huge plentiful closets (most with original automatic lighting & skeleton keys), a butler’s room with large pantry, original tile floors in the kitchen and all three bathrooms, one piece stainless steel kitchen countertop and original porcelain bathroom sinks. The home was remodeled head to toe in 2017 maintaining most of the original fixtures including 7 various sized and styled crystal chandeliers purchased in 1940 from New York. The later added den and study have the original knotty pine walls & cabinets and the floors are all original hardwood. The staircase was designed to keep older homeowners and children in mind with shorter risers and wide stair treads with a wide landing at the 180o turn leading to a large landing upstairs. The upstairs owners suite is large with a knotty pine office or walk in closet, 2 walk in closets and a knotty pine bunk room with 2 built in bunk beds for children or grandchildren. Also situated on the property is a three stall garage with a wired two bedroom, two bath apartment that served as the household staff quarters. The Palm House is perfect for entertaining guest, hosting family or just enjoying a quietlifestyle in a beautiful piece of southern history and small town living.
