Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We are the proud recipients of the 2013 Historic Aiken Foundation 'President's Award.' In 2011 we purchased the eight cottages that comprise Kershaw Square in Aiken's Historic District, from the Staubes family, who had owned them for over 125 years. We began painstakingly restoring them, working closely with the Aiken Historic Design Review Board. We preserved the unique character of each cottage while, at the same time, updating the mechanical systems to ensure the maximum comfort of our guests. As part of our commitment to sustainable energy and green technology, we have utilized energy efficient systems, wherever possible. Historic Restoration is our passion!

Why the Owner Chose Aiken:
We love doing historic restorations!

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Enjoy the Southern Charm and Gracious Ambiance of this Historic neighborhood. Walk to downtown, stroll the shady boulevards, and sip a cool drink on the front verandah. Relax, Refresh, Rejuvenate!
