About 300 W South 1st Street

The stunning G.W.Gignilliat House is a designated state landmark in the wonderful town of Seneca, South Carolina. Built in 1898 and situated on over 3 acres of park-like grounds, the property has spacious privacy as well as proximity to the town and shopping. The current (second) owners focused for over 30 years with an open checkbook on painstakingly preserving and restoring of every aspect of this Queen Anne Victorian home. The exterior color scheme was meticulously restored to the original colors and patterns revealing many delightful architectural details. Original stained-glass windows are prominent in the foyer, parlor and stairwell.The 13 room, two-story living area is over 5000 square feet, not including a fully floored attic, basement, and guest apartment. Each floor has a dog run hallway with six rooms adjoining. The 12' high ceilings on the first floor and 11' high ceilings on the second floor are joined by two staircases, which creates a spacious roominess throughout and keeps the interior cool during summer. There are a total of 8 oak fireplace mantles with hearth tiles imported from England (mantles sealed and inoperable today). Beautiful 1 1/4" oak flooring was installed in the public rooms in 1927, and the private rooms retain the original "heart pine" flooring which is in fabulous condition. All rooms are bright and airy and have multiple large windows with delightful views of a fully manicured lawn and private forest. Most rooms have been painstakingly restored, with the old paint removed from ceilings and walls and professionally refloated and painted, and the doors and trim were painstakingly stripped and properly stained to reveal the beautiful original wood underneath.All electrical and plumbing systems have been refreshed and updated. The house retains a fully functioning, gas fired steam heating system with radiators in every room. Two new heat pump units provide upstairs air-conditioning and supplemental heating. Two mini split air conditioning units are located on the first floor in the kitchen and home office. A beautiful new Da Vinci simulated slate roof was installed in 2021. A derelict carriage house was replaced in 1999 with a beautiful two-story garage apartment building with exterior styling to match the main house. The guest apartment boasts an additional 800 square feet with living area, modern kitchen, bathroom, and central air/heat. This is a unique property rich with history and charm. The house is truly of a grand scale not seen today and was originally part of the Gignilliat cotton farm and vineyard. A trained civil engineer, George Warren Gignilliat constructed the house with a bearing wall foundation, and evidence suggests that the architect was George Barber of Knoxville Tennessee. The pictures do not do the home justice. If you ever wanted to live in a home comparable to the house in The Big Chill, nows your chance!
