Every time I visit this home, I take a dozen photos. There’s a beautiful scene everywhere you look, from the exposed beams over the covered porches, to the magnificent live oak trees, dripping with Spanish moss.

Built in 1679 by the Middleton family, the Otranto Plantation House is believed to be the oldest structure in South Carolina – and nearly 100 years older than the founding of our country!

Aside from the fascinating history of this house, its proximity to downtown Charleston and the amenities it offers make it a true rare find.

The Otranto neighborhood is a mile from Interstate 26, which makes it extremely convenient for commuters, and any activities you want to do on the weekend.

The 1.75-acre property features a private dock on the Goose Creek Reservoir, which is a lake in the heart of Hanahan, SC.

It has an in-ground swimming pool, set up with a pool-house and over-sized barbecue grill, perfect for entertaining family and friends.

There’s also a small, detached “Cook’s House,” which could be a home office, den, or she-shed.

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 of 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 offer views in every direction. A solar water heater and solar panels make the home energy efficient (solar equipment is owned, not leased).

You are sure to be in awe of this home, from its sturdy construction to the craftsman details, and endless possibilities to make it your own.
