Wales Garden Stunner Is For Sale – 29205

Take a look at this house. First of all, it’s in one of Columbia’s premiere historical neighborhoods; Wales Garden. After that sinks in, take a look at the pics in the attachment. 521 Congaree Ave. is so slammed full of creativity and cool things that we’re still adding photos and different angles.

I mean seriously, I’ve been in a lot of homes but can’t remember ever seeing narrow board heart of pine floors…which are on the first and second levels of the house.

Take a look at the master. When living in Boca Raton, Florida, I showed homes of professional sports figures in Boca, Palm Beach, and Miami (My dad owned a real estate company in the heart of Boca, Champion Realty, where I worked my first year out of USC). While they were awesome and impressive South Florida homes, I don’t remember ever seeing a two story owner’s suite complete with overlooking balcony. The master is a beautiful amenity, and almost acts as a private town home within a home. To say, “it’s cool,” doesn’t quite do it justice.

On MLS we have limited space for “Remarks” to describe a listing. Here’s what I had room for; “Amazing home replete with stunning details in one of Columbia’s most beautiful neighborhoods. Features include tall ceilings; recessed lighting; very rare, narrow-cut heart pine floors throughout; wine cellar; rain chains; elevated decks; and French doors with transoms at every turn. Spectacular two-story owner’s suite w/balcony and a 3-head steam shower. Vast kitchen with massive island is complete with thick granite slab and 10-piece stainless appliance collection. The backyard is resort-like: gorgeous pool surrounded by flagstone decking, a cascading waterfall, lush landscaping, up-lighting, and a gas-supplied fire pit. This is a sharp, polished home ready to provide any level of entertaining.” I could’ve used triple the space allotted.

If you or anyone you know would like to view this beautiful Wales Garden home please call or email or .   I live about four blocks from this house, and the 5-Points Starbucks is literally 150-200 yards away.

I’ll be hosting a Sunday Open House soon, and will post the video as soon as my man is done.

Tidbit about Wales Garden;  A lot of folks refer to the neighborhood as, “The River Streets” – Congaree, Saluda, Waccamaw, Santee, Wateree, Catawba, etc. You get the idea.

Here are two more pics we couldn’t fit in MLS but I slid in last weeks post.

Thank you!

Premier Home Hits Market @Columbia, SC

5.000 Feet, Top-Tier Materials, 3-Car Garage, Semi-Private Pond

Every now and then we come across a home that simply has too many features to mention. 17 Ashworth just may be one of those properties. Sales puff and descriptive fluff aside, this house is big, slick, clever, and replete with top shelf everything.

I can’t do it justice behind this keyboard, but 17 Ashworth features a hotel-style foyer, wide-plank pine floors, and a semi-open plan that somehow still features formal areas.

The professional-grade chef’s kitchen is full of commercial-level awesomeness, which spills into the formal wet bar and spacious breakfast area. Steps further is the “morning room.”  Nice!!

The owner’s suite is as well thought out as any in the Midlands. The grand master has a spacious bath area with dual closets (hers complete with vanity), and a private den that’s symmetrically-aligned with the aforementioned “morning room,” both of which overlook a semi-private pond. I’m telling you… it’s good.

I’m not sure I can think of a finer home to entertain. I’ve been to a few parties here and the “flow” is right on. All of the doorways are gracious, and each area flows into the other without friction or congestion.

The outdoor areas are just as fine. The three-car garage is primed for auto enthusiasts, and the grilling patio is one step off the kitchen. The back fully-covered patio is the dot in 17 Ashworth’s exclamation point, as it overlooks the semi-private pond and spray fountian. In short, there’s nothing here not to love.

If you or anyone you know might be interested in downtown Columbia, SC, at it’s best, call or email or 17 Ashworth is close to everything downtown, Forest Acres, Trenholm Plaza, and is a pleaure to show.
