822 Poplar Springs, Westminster, South Carolina
The Steins knew they wanted to move out of the city of Atlanta when they welcomed their beloved child into their lives. As fate has it, a longtime friend telephoned and informed them of a property for sale in Westminster. As it turns out, Mrs. Stein’s family has ties to the same community since the 1700s, so it was worth the trip to take a peek. And it was no regular plot of land. The 158 acres of picturesque green pastures, gently rolling hills, and mature trees at the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, a mere four hours from the Atlantic Coast Beaches, was the ideal backdrop for their new estate. “The first time we saw the trees and rolling meadows, we knew,” recall the Steins.
Mrs. Stein immediately took the reins. After working closely with Atlanta-based architectural firm Palladian Inc. and Seneca-based interior designers at Aesthetics, Inc., for a year of careful planning and an additional two years of construction, it was move-in day. Providing undiluted privacy, sophisticated finesse, and unforgettable indulgence, the grand estate boasts over 16,000 square-feet of extraordinary craftsmanship and architectural refinement.
The approach to the main residence is as majestic as the home itself. Enter through the electric gate and drive down a .6-mile curving driveway. Enjoy the commanding views of land, horses, stables, and lake as the striking facade of the distinguished home looms into view. Inside lavish interiors gracefully complement the high-quality finishes throughout the home’s stately living spaces, gourmet kitchen, eight bedrooms, and eleven baths.
Combining an impressive scale with intimate comfort, this exceptional country estate has served as the perfect family home, holiday retreat, and even philanthropic hub. Mrs. Stein reflects, “We have hosted major donor parties for the local hospital foundation with 250 guests inside without feeling crowded. We have also hosted large parties for our church and our son’s school. The prime reason we built a large home was so relatives could all gather here for holidays. It is not unusual for us to have 50 or more relatives share our home for Thanksgiving and again at Christmas.”
But as all things do, change and downsizing has become a reality. The 16,000 square foot abode is still the oasis that started with a dream, but now too much for the couple whose son has grown. The exquisite home now awaits new owners to live in the unrivaled tranquility, privacy, and ideal weather that this area affords. Those who wish an elegant, yet active life in horse country, with the possibility of also seeking and developing an exclusive vineyard and winemaking, should make this property their own.
Oconee Regional Airport is only 8.7 miles away and Greenville International Airport is 68 miles away. The location also offers incredibly scenic National Parks, three world-class lakes, mere hours from beaches, numerous waterfalls, and endless hiking and horse riding trails.
Fine country living for the discerning connoisseurs who seek out their own ready-made dream with extensive furnishings are in store for an experience beyond any expectation.
822 Poplar Springs, Westminster, South Carolina is offered at $10,000,000 with extensive furnishings.
