Welcome to your new home in the historic village of Pinopolis. Pinopolis is a peninsula in the 60,000 acres of Lake Moultrie. This 2521 square foot home plus a 418 square foot guest cottage is listed as the William Robertson House on the National Historic Register of homes. The house, built in the early 1830's, was the summer home of Charles McBeth, the Confederate mayor of Charleston. It is among the very first homes to be built in this pineland retreat. The family room of the house was originally a cottage on Sullivan's Island and was on of the last cargos to be shipped on the Old Santee Canal. The guest house dates from 1895. Construction is heart pine with numbered floorboards indicating probably reassembly from planed wood from family plantations.This house has so much charm and character with its 7 fireplaces (all functional, two with gas logs, and one Buck Stove), original bottle glass windowpanes, claw foot tubs, and wainscoting. The wraparound porch on two sides of the home catches summer breezes and has been the location of many wonderful parties.
As you enter the home, you're greeted by a formal living and dining room. A separate family room in the west wing is perfect for relaxing with a good book. The master bedroom is located on the ground floor with a spacious master bath, shower and claw foot tub, and dual sinks. Both bedroom and bathroom open to an enclosed deck, perfect for morning coffee.
Two bedrooms and a shared bathroom, also with a small claw foot tub, are located upstairs. A remodeled eat-in kitchen is great for preparing and enjoying meals with family and friends. Plenty of storage
The Guest House has a living room, bathroom with shower, closet, small kitchenette, and sleeping area. There is a large, detached garage in the back yard. The grounds are attractively landscaped with mature trees, woody shrubs, and a variety of perennials.
The current owner has modernized the interior of the home while preserving its charm and history. Pinopolis is located approximately 35 miles from Charleston International Airport and Boeing. It is approximately 45 minutes to downtown Charleston. The new Volvo plant is only minutes away from Pinopolis. This home is one you don't want to miss. The historic and friendly village of Pinopolis is truly the place to call home.
