Agent's Comments

Do you like to spend time with guest to discuss and debate the politics of the day ? Do you like to prepare food and a place of rest for weary travelers? Are you comfortable serving wine or ale to other town citizens ? If you said "yes" to these questions then you would have been the perfect tavern keeper during the birth of our country. Here's your opportunity to own what is believed to have been the oldest tavern in South Carolina; and now the oldest home in Historic Georgetown. (Constructed: ca 1734 - per the South Carolina Department Of Archives and History). The Thomas Bolem House has recently undergone a massive resurrection. The current owner took great care to preserve the period relevance of the home while still introducing certain modern upgrades. You'll be taken back in time as you view the molding, doors and fireplaces that were seen and enjoyed by our forefathers over 280 years ago. Likewise, the modern features will thrill todays discerning buyer. Stainless appliances, a built in wine rack and wine cooler, a warming drawer, soapstone counter tops, a unique can storage system and a gas stove highlight the kitchen. There is ample room to host large groups or family gatherings. The updated bath fixtures are a drastic improvement over what was available in the 1700's. The residence offers 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths as well as other various rooms. The Master bedroom offers a large sitting area that could also be used as office space or a nursery. Here you have access to a second floor porch and spectacular views of other special homes of the Historic District. In addition there is an elegant Dining Room that was thought to be the tavern's bar at one time. An addition was added to the rear of the home in the 1800's which created a space for a sunroom and a laundry area. Here you will also notice a quiet den area located near the kitchen. The owner preserved a view of the original exterior chimney and an exposed section of the original roofing system. There is a tremendous back yard that provides space for private contemplation along with plenty of room for gardening. The uniqueness of this residence presents an opportunity for an owner of equal status; someone who respects where we came from and is able to enjoy the past along with the future. Take time to view and enjoy 719 Prince Street; recognized by The National Register of Historic Places.
