Sitting on 118 acres in Aiken, South Carolina, a hidden gem of a residence with unique features has landed on the real estate market for $2.89 million.
One of the interesting things about the “glass” main house is that it was inspired by another famous house.
“Built of glass and steel, this contemporary home is a true masterpiece, inspired by the Farnsworth House in Plano Illinois and designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe,” the Realtor.com listing reads.
This historic home was built between 1945 and 1951, while this particular one-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom residence was built in 2015.
The main house consists of 2,125 square feet and has an abundance of features including:
“It’s such a modern home in an area down south where you really don’t find that kind of home,” listing agent Thomas Bossard of Carolina Real Estate Co. told Realtor.com.
“When you first walk in, it’s all glass and steel. So you walk in, and everything is open. You have the main hall, and it is open to the kitchen.
The property also has a magnificent brick guest house.
“The brick house looks like a guesthouse. There are two stoves in there because when there are parties caterers can work there instead of inside. [glass] house,” Bossard told Realtor.
There are also two ponds and stables with eight stalls and a barn which also has guest quarters.
Aiken is about 55 miles southwest of Columbia.
