About the property

Close to everything Columbia has to offer, far enough away for privacy and quiet

My home is a three minute drive to art, culture, great restaurants and family-friendly activities. Just across the Gervais street bridge, less than two blocks to the river front park, sits our Bungalow. In a safe, quiet, convenient, neighborhood called New Brookland.

Our 100 year old charmer will take you back in time with the original hardwood floors, hand laid beadboard ceilings, and the hand crafted moldings. But with all new modern luxuries. The house has been completely updated with a new eat in open airy kitchen. With marble counters, a farm house sink, natural gas stove, wine and beverage fridge. The bath has a tile floor and a tub- shower combo. There are three of the five original fireplaces. But the best is the outdoor pool, with its tranquil fountains. There is a covered pergola, equiped with: frefrigerator, sink, television(summer), ceiling fans, and natural gas fireplace and natural gas grill. One flip of the switch and there you are relaxing on the outdoor sofa, while enjoying the cozy fire.

Inside you will find two bedrooms, both furnished with nice luxury linens, and original fireplaces. One bedroom has a king bed, and the other has a queen. The sunroom has a twin daybed for additional guest. There is also air mattress available.

There is convenient on sight parking, privacy fenced back yard, and a covered front porch with rocking chairs. The neighborhood is a great place to take a stroll along the large oaks, just minutes to restaurants and local shops. From art, luxury consignments, day spas, and grocery.

About Tonya

Hi, I'm Tonya. Born and raised in SC. I own a hair salon, and my husband Erik works as GM in the auto world. We have three kids between us, a son 28, daughter 26, son 22. And our baby together, Ellie our 5lb yorkie.

Why Tonya chose West Columbia

We have spent the last two years renovating our Bungalow to bring it back to life. This 100 year old beauty had a lot of abuse through the years. We tried to preserve as much of the original detail as possible, while bringing it up to today's modern conveniences. If you stay, you will get to experience the character of this home while enjoying all the great amenities.

What makes this house unique

Walking to a lot, while being in a quiet established area. I like to say "close enough to everything, but far enough away". The back yard with its pergola will give you extra outdoor living space. The outdoor kitchen, fireplace, and grill are right at your fingertips. Sit and enjoy the birds while reading. Sit by the fire while sipping coffee or a glass of wine. Dine by the pool or lounge on the two outdoor sofas. You have door to door parking and the full use of this private home.

The home has all you’ll need in your stay. The bed was very comfortable and kitchen was well equipped. Very clean, and very convenient to restaurants and downtown while being tucked in a quiet area. It was a very sweet stay. Thank you Tonya.

Located in a nice neighborhood, a five minute bike ride to the river, on a quiet street. Nice pool. Tonya answers texts right away and was a pleasure to work with. We would definitely stay there again.

Very charming Southern home. Private, comfortable and good location.

  • 4 of 5

The owner was very easy to work with and her decorating was fun & interesting for folks from Colorado to experience. Totally different than what we were used to. The home is in the process of being renovated which we felt should have been noted to us. It will be an exquisite property with a little more TLC. Overall I would give it a B.
