Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: Ron hails from Atlanta and Cathy from Racine, Wisconsin. We met in Athens, Georgia when Cathy moved from Washington, DC to go to school there. In addition to spending time with nature on the property, Ron has enjoyed performing and teaching comedy in Greenville, while Cathy has enjoyed the downtown sightseeing and friendly people. We both also enjoy history. Our large extended family has spent relaxing holidays on the property with Thanksgiving meals eaten on the river deck and Easter egg hunts outside in the trees for the kids. Our daughter loves the location, and says she hopes someday it will be hers to enjoy with her own family.
Why the Owner Chose Greenville, SC, USA:
It was always a dream to own a private river home property on a wide, lively river. Ron cleared much of the land and planted over seventy fruit tees, apple, fig, plum, pear, cherry and peach trees and various fruit bushes including blueberry, blackberry and raspberry bushes. We made it our own by adding outdoor spaces, a dog room with heated tile, a dog door and dog shower as well as various other amenities. There is also a large dog kennel on the property.
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
There is no other property in this area with this much privacy as well as this much river frontage. The house is comfortable, updated, yet very cozy with the Stone fireplaces and the fire pit. The property and river are spectacular. While you are on the property, you are in your own private retreat, yet in 15 minutes you can be in Greenville's cosmopolitan downtown eating Sushi, Thai or Barbecue, visiting an art gallery, seeing a play or a participating in an improv comedy show. If you climb the hill in winter you can see the mountain peak at Caesar's Head State Park. Potential to have a wedding, reception or private function on the property is also a possibility.
