About the Property
One of Summerville's earliest homes on over 1 1/2 acres of native landscape.
The meticulously restored Cottage is a former servants' quarters for this property which has one of the oldest homes in Summerville dating from ca. 1812. The main house and the Cottage have been the focus of over 40 years attention to proper restoration by many fine craftsmen from the historic preservation community of Charleston and the Low Country. The Cottage measures approximately 800 sq' and is approached by its own private paved drive with private parking. Outside the Cottage is a large brick patio surrounded by boxwood, azaleas and camellias and a pleasing water feature. Many magnolia trees and live oaks surround the Cottage which is about 150' behind the main house. The Cottage is completely self-contained with a full kitchen, bath/shower, living room with fireplace as well as a large bedroom with Queen 4 poster bed and sitting area. The living room and bedroom both have high cathedral ceilings. The roof of the Cottage is standing seam tin and makes for magnificent sleep during a rain storm. Guests have been telling us for many years that nothing has been overlooked in the decor or amenities for the Cottage. The kitchen is fully equipped with new stainless appliances and a granite counter top. There is a range, refrigerator/freezer with ice maker, disposal, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, Keurig coffee maker, pots, pans, dishes and utensils. The bath has a tiled tub/shower and pedestal sink. Wide board heart pine floors are throughout. Linens are provided and a washer/dryer is available for guest use at the Cottage.

Year Purchased: 1974
About the owner: David came to Summerville in 1974 to practice ophthalmology which he did as a solo general ophthalmologist until 'retiring' in 2012 to take a position caring for veterans and active duty service personnel at a joint eye clinic for the VA and DoD at the Naval Weapons Station. Jennifer is an Operating Room nurse and interior decorator and is the person responsible for the decorating and design touches on the property.
Why the Owner Chose Summerville, SC, USA:
I fell in love with the property at first sight; the old house to lovingly and properly restore, the avenue of live oaks leading to the main house and a lovely community that I could easily become a part of. I have not been disappointed.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The Cottage is a place of peace and quiet in a town that still has a village feel despite being less than 30 minutes from the Historic District of Charleston and even closer to the Historic Ashley River Plantation/Gardens of Middleton, Magnolia and Drayton Hall. There are many interesting small shops and several nice casual eating places within walking distance of the Cottage. The Cottage is situated in the midst of a very large block with most properties being larger than 1 acre, so there is very much a feeling of being in the country. It is an opportunity to experience Charleston and the Low Country of South Carolina and yet return to a more peaceful, less hectic environment at the end of a day in beautiful Historic Charleston.
