Property Description

Aeolian Hill is an impressive 210+/- acre estate located about 60 minutes from Charleston, SC and 30 minutes from Columbia, SC. This exquisite property was named by the owner after the Greek god of wind, Aeolus, due to the pleasant breezes which often blow across the estate. Mr. John Edward Wannamaker inherited the property from his father, Reverend John Jacob Wannamaker. The estate has been a working farm for over 148 years and is known for the experimental cotton and soybeans it has cultivated. The first harvestable soybean, the "Clemson Non-shatter", was developed here on this estate (by John). The farming area of the estate is currently leased by a gentleman farmer.A portion of the land is also leased as a hunting retreat. John Edward built this stately five-bedroom, four-bathroom home around 1875 which originally stood as a one-story dwelling. He later added the second story which remains to this day and is presently used as a full-time residence. Prefaced with splendid double piazzas, you are greeted by a grand staircase in the spacious foyer flanked by a formal living area with a fireplace. Opposite the formal living is an inviting great room with custom built-in bookshelves which still contain historic volumes, papers, and hardbacks rich with Calhoun County's history. Just ahead is a downstairs master bedroom with en suite bath. The dining room and main kitchen is down the hall to your left and in the back-right corner of the home sits the original caretaker's quarters, ideal for an in-law or an au pair suite with a separate full bath, den, and kitchenette. Upstairs, you will find two sizeable bedrooms each with their own walk-in closet as well as a hall bath. The 5,000± sq.ft. home is also utilized as a wedding venue, corporate retreat, and an Airbnb. With endless potential, this estate is perfect for anyone wanting to make his or her mark on the next generation. Please come and visit Aeolian Hill for yourself and make your own history. Imagine the possibilities.
