5403 Springfield Road, Williston, South Carolina, 29853
Colonial Thompson House in historic Williston, SC sits on 2.8 wooded, landscaped acres. Williston, an important part of the cotton industry (until the march of the boll-weevil), then the heart of the once-booming SC asparagus industry (until largely displaced by California’s longer growing season), was an important commercial area of South Carolina, but is now a peaceful backwater known more for its relaxed lifestyle and location handy to Aiken, North Augusta, Columbia and Charleston.
This carefully and lovingly restored home offers a luxurious master suite, parlor, formal living and dining rooms on the first floor and four spacious bedrooms on the second floor. The grand entryway, with its sweeping staircase, draws you into a comfortable layout made for entertaining. The home is punctuated by roofed wrap-around porches, glorious original woodwork, original glass door knobs and hardware and several original “wavy glass” window panes. Hardwood floors sparkle throughout (Heart Pine, Oak plus glorious Brazilian Cherry in the kitchen). Antique chandeliers, fireplaces in many rooms, a completely updated eat-in kitchen boasting stainless steel appliances, an island counter and original Butler’s pantry complete this home’s atmosphere of comfort and high degree of ambiance.
The impressively-wooded grounds are completed by a three car detached garage with overhead storage, a 10' x 35' deck, a patio and fully fenced backyard.
