Since you all seemed to enjoy the first installment of “lovely listing,” I’m back with another! I can’t get over this house, y’all. Even though these photos are of a vacant house, it gives me such a feeling of a warm, cozy home. I’m picturing myself squeezing fresh lemonade on those beautiful butcher block counters, then enjoying an ice cold glass while in a rocking chair on the front porch that overlooks amazing live oak trees. Are you with me? 

This home is just outside of Charleston in a little town called McClellanville. You know, that’s the kind of place where time moves a little slower and you can still see lightening bugs. It’s more the pace of where I grew up, so I’m naturally drawn to it.

Built in 1904 by a local carpenter, this home has all the charm you would expect in an older Victorian home, but it’s been renovated to today’s modern standards. It’s nestled in the coastal village of McClellanville’s Historic District and just like the photos show, it’s framed by pretty amazing live oak trees. 

Who wants to move in with me? Even though we just moved last week, I could maybe go for one more go at it! 

(Ehh. On second thought. Maybe not.)

The charm is literally overflowing.

Those ceilings!

Hello, beautiful heart pine floors.

So can you picture yourself on that porch, too? Should we have cookies to snack on …or wine and cheese?

The nitty gritty: This home is 4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, 2404 sq. ft, on .34 acre, listed at $499,000, and is located at 704 Pinckney St., McClellanville, SC.

    OMG! I am dying! I am pretty dang positive that is the house that my father-in-law restored in 2006! I was the agent in the sale. I'm trying to remember the street now…but it sounds like the same story because it was owned by 3 sisters – their father had built in in the early 1900s!

    OK, just saw the address – yep, 704 Pinckney St!!! If any of your Charleston readers are interested in work on their house as good as this, call R.A. Smith Construction. The proof is in the pudding. 🙂

    Sorry, I can't stop commenting on this post…haha, I did want to give my husband a shout out as he did much of the cabinetry, built-ins and coffered ceilings work!
