Two homes occupy this quiet 3.75-acre corner lot located right beside Silver Lake. Construction on the main farmhouse, the Berry House, located on the Berry Plantation, began in 1908 after the original plantation house burned down in 1907. Completed around 1910, the main house is approx 2720 sq ft. It features 2 rooms upstairs for potential bedrooms, bonus room, study, workout room, craft room, or game room. One full bathroom with a claw foot bathtub/shower is between the 2 bedrooms. Downstairs, find 1 full bathroom and 3 rooms for bedrooms, a study, dressing room, or an additional sitting room. There are 2 non-operational fireplaces in the main house. Gas logs could possibly be installed, but no gas to the house presently. One piano and all the appliances convey with both houses. Washer and dryer convey with main house. Many upgrades have been made to the homes. They are being sold as-is. In the 1920's, this property was used as a dairy farm. The milk house and 2 silo foundations remain on the property to this day. In the 1950's the Berry family built the dam and Silver Lake. The single-pane windows were replaced with large double-pane insulated windows to give way to plenty of natural light on the first floor. The old storm windows were kept on most windows for additional insulation. Most of the rooms on the first floor have 10 ft ceilings. Roof is approximately 6 years old. The spacious kitchen has plenty of light as well and features two pantries for lots of storage plus enough room for a dining table. The spacious deck on the back of the house is great for entertaining or just enjoying the back yard view. Use the double room storage building in the back yard to store lawn tools or a mower. International Cub Lowboy mower conveys. The 3.75 acres offers plenty of privacy and the calming sound of the waterfall to the east can be heard from the yard. The view to the east is of the water falling over the Berry's Pond dam and of the South Tyger River valley (owned by SJWD/local water company). To the south is 8 acres of wooded land below the dam that forms Silver Lake. To the west is Silver Lake Dam and a narrow view of the shimmering Silver Lake. The front porch swing is hidden by trees and bushes with lovely dogwoods which bloom in the spring. Several mature black walnut trees stand on the property. With easy access to I-85 and hwy 290, this property is located near the city of Duncan, between Spartanburg and Greenville and is close to grocery stores, restaurants, district 5 schools, River Falls Golf Course, as well as Tyger River Park and the Kayak Park on Berry's Pond. The $ 50.00 optional annual hoa fee gives homeowners access to the fishing and boating activities on Silver Lake. The crawl space floor was spray-foamed to provide insulation and prevent air infiltration from the crawl space. The attic is heavily insulated and has reflective heat barriers. The home features electric heat pumps for each level which have been upgraded to geo-sourced heat pumps when a geo field pipe system was drilled into the side yard. The ground water temperature of 60 degrees is ideal for both heating and cooling when used with the low maintenance water energy transfer systems in the geo-sourced heat pumps. The second house, built around 1993, is just under 900 square feet and served as a school for the girls' home located in the Berry House. This second living area has since been used as a mother-in-law suite and the ultimate man cave. With open floor plan and blown ceilings, it features large windows to let in the warm sunshine and to provide a nice view of the back wood line where deer love to visit. The 2-car carport is attached to the second living area and is a great place to sit and enjoy the view of the backyard. The two homes share one gravel driveway. Do not miss the opportunity to enjoy this country home. Book your showing today.
