Property Description

Built in 1889 by John Wesley Cochran and his wife, Mary Alice Boggs, this unique historic farmhouse is one of the oldest homes in Clemson. Each interior and exterior original wall is constructed of three layers of handmade brick on a stone foundation. Historic preservation of its original features has been maintained throughout the house. Features include 12' ceilings, seven working fireplaces, heart pine floors and ceilings, pegged doors, and walls 12" thick. The dining room is 16'X26' with a fireplace at either end. The kitchen has a red, four-oven AGA stove. The house has both well and City water, which is used for irrigation, as well as an energy efficient tankless hot water heater and a backup generator. Quietly hidden from view, a 40' lily pond with waterfalls provides a feeling of intimacy and reflection from the Master Bedroom and side ironwood deck and pergola designed by landscape architect Hugh Dargan. An additional enclosed rear porch has windows overlooking a pasture and 35-acre hardwood forest beyond that is also for sale. With the consulting advise from wildlife experts Jess and Ron Fleming of Wings and Antlers, the pasture has been planted to provide wildlife habitat for turkeys, deer and a wide variety of birds. The chicken coop has an automatic watering system and insulated water lines. With the help of renowned designer Mary Palmer Dargan, the garden has been meticulously landscaped to include 21 native palmettos, the State tree of South Carolina. Remembering how this joyful garden will greet visitors, elliptical oeil-de-boeuf openings create windows in the pierced brick wall, the perfect backdrop for myriad roses, climbing plants and taller varieties of perennials. The wrought iron grilles are copied from details in a gate in front of St. Philip's Episcopal Church in Charleston. A combination of brick and wrought iron walls cast shade but reflect warmth, allowing air to circulate. Wrought gates created by master craftsman Daniel Maden have been meticulously copied from one of Charleston's most elegant homes on South Battery. Every corner is filled with Nature's precious jewels, some so small that they would be overwhelmed and lost in a larger, more spacious surrounding. Filled with the perfumed scents of perennials, the garden provides framed views to enjoy from inside, all flowing, yet separated, quietly suggesting rooms both inside and out, shafts of light at each hour of the day and each season. Finally, immortalized by John James Audubon, an exquisite, three-tiered bittern cast iron fountain and pond made from original J.W. Fiske moulds c. 1856 create a focal point from every vantage point. Stacked stone walls surround the pasture on one side of the garden. A detached three-car garage provides ample parking. Both the house and garage have new copper gutters. 5,291 square feet gross living area.
