This one & one-half story 2,900 sq ft home, known as Cedar Tree Plantation, was built in 1853 by Edward G. Palmer & is set in a very private & secluded area of Ridgeway, SC. In later years Cedar Tree Plantation was also known for its traditional upland bird hunts for Pheasant, and Quail on acres of prime, natural habitat and reopened pasture land. The property consists of the main house, an 800 sq ft 2 bedroom cottage, large barn & various outbuildings all set in 17.17 acres of mature trees, fenced pasture, meadows & many ornamental bushes & shrubs. The plantation house, with its striking front porch flanked by large columns, contains a first floor master suite with full bath & sitting room, formal living & dining rooms, library & kitchen. The first floor is completed by a spacious enclosed back porch that runs the full length of the building & provides the common access to the grounds and outbuildings. The second floor provides 2 additional bedrooms, full bath & attic storage. The current owner began extensive repairs last year, many of which have been completed, including extensive foundation work, tree & brush removal, new HVAC, new roof, plumbing & wiring updates, along with significant redecorating. More are in the works but the kitchen, in particular, remains a blank slate for a new owner to complete and/or expand in accord with their personal taste. The barn is in need of some repair but could be restored for active use (the contractor has said it is sound).
