Otranto Plantation, situated on the banks of the Goose Creek Reservoir, was established in 1678. Edward and Arthur Middleton received the 1780 acres in a land grant (their descendant would later sign the Declaration of Independence). The house is the oldest known structure in South Carolina, believed to have been built c. 1679. The plantation was listed in the National Registry of Historic Places in 1978, where its low profile and colonnade on three sides are noted as architecturally significant, as they are unusual for the Charleston area. Other notable owners include Dr. Alexander Garden. The gardenia flower is named for him, and he is credited for bringing the smallpox vaccine to the area.It has a regal setting on a quiet neighborhood street, lined with live oaks that drip with Spanish moss. In addition to the plantation house, the property features an in-ground swimming pool and pool-house; "Cook's House;" and private dock. The detailed craftsmanship and understated elegance of the main house are unlike anything else you'll see in today's construction. High ceilings and heart pine flooring make the rooms feel large; a fireplace in every room adds charm and character; a NEW roof and solid masonry construction promise low maintenance; the wrap around porches with a series of French doors offer views in every direction; a solar water heater and solar panels make the home energy efficient (solar equipment is owned, not leased). Seller just had solid wood beams over the covered piazza exposed, and the entire exterior has fresh new paint. The pool area is set up for entertaining, with an over-sized grilling area, wash station, screened porch, workshop, and two bathrooms, including a shower. This building could be converted to a separate living space and used as a mother-in-law suite. The "Cook's House" could be a great office, workshop, or she-shed. Majestic oak trees leading up to the property and on the grounds will mesmerize you. Enjoy sunrise on the dock, and keep your boat there so it's ready to ride at a moment's notice. With no HOA, this an ideal property for anyone looking to store their "toys." Otranto Plantation is an established neighborhood with mature trees, custom homes, two parks, tennis courts, and a fire station. Commuters love the central location: Shopping and restaurants are within 2-3 miles; the airport is 10 minutes away; and you can get to the beaches, downtown Charleston, or Summerville in about 20-30 minutes. Don't miss this rare opportunity to own one of the cornerstones of our country's history, and the oldest structure in South Carolina. Call to schedule your private tour today!
