Delightful Morrison-Wright Cottage, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, offers an elegant home and beautiful gardens to enjoy entertaining and fine living in downtown Aiken, SC. This impressive 'town' house will captivate those who appreciate the glamour of yesteryear and those looking for a harmonious combination of formal, family and outdoor living spaces for a stylish Southern lifestyle! Eleven fluted Corinthian columns grace the front porch with extraordinary carved capitals, all in excellent condition. The detailed restoration of the fan-shaped leaded window and side panels of the front door will last another 100 years! The drama of the grand entrance is a perfect setting to continue the glamorous living that began in the early 20th century. Imagine a holiday tree gracing the front hall, seen through the front door, welcoming your guests with good cheer! High-end Schumacher wallpapers, draperies and gleaming wood floors grace the front living areas. The home enjoys 8 fireplaces in total; 5 first level fireplaces are furnished with upgraded gas fireplace systems, 3 of which have remote capabilities. The stunning dining room has a beautifully crafted wood ceiling and a tasteful, built-in buffet designed to highlight a central glass window. Adjacent to the dining room is a lovely sunroom with views to three garden spaces and access to a charming patio. The handsome office/library is a favorite with stained woodwork, charming fireplace & 3-bay window with views to the side garden, pool and pool pavilion. A charming powder room is found just beyond. The elegant, wide staircase welcomes you to the second level where you will find a wide center hall leading to the primary bedroom suite, 2 guest bedrooms and guest bath. The renovated guest bathroom has a new marble tiled shower and the charm of restored wainscoting. The primary suite enjoys a spacious bedroom, bath with 2 vanities, shower and soaking tub and a full-size dressing room and closet. The primary suite is lovely with pleasant natural light, views - a quiet retreat within the home. The staircase continues to the upper floor living spaces including a renovated full bath, 2 spacious bedrooms & a super-sized laundry room. Either bedroom is versatile as a flex room for yoga, fitness or art studio. Take the back stairs down to the bar/pantry & fun, MacKenzie-Childs inspired kitchen updated with Viking appliances, Sub-Zero refrigerator & freezer. You will love the diamond-tiled backsplash, center island with seating for 2 and corner office nook. Open the French doors to the patio to let the outside in! Just beyond is a new heated 'cocktail' pool & fountain, patio & poolside pavilion with outdoor kitchen connections ready to fashion to your liking! Beyond the kitchen is a family / breakfast 'garden' room with brick tile floors, high ceilings and views to the gardens, fountains & fenced grounds. We imagine this is a fun gathering room for casual dining and conversation. The property enjoys a rear double-car width roundabout, gravel drive, a charming 2-car parking pavilion with cupola and a rear garden alley with gated access to Chaffee Lane. The current owners have attended to and maintained all of the functional / operational elements of this home. Noteworthy additions / improvements include the brick wall & gate at the driveway entrance; wrought iron fencing and brick column perimeter; installation of the roundabout drive, recently landscaped; the 2-car parking pavilion, pool, pool/patio surround & pavilion, and a newly installed 360' deep well, that services the pool and irrigation. You will love the prime in-town location, an easy stroll or bike to downtown restaurants, shops, art & performing arts venues. Both Aiken and Palmetto Golf Clubs are nearby as are Hitchcock Woods, boarding & training facilities for horse & rider. We invite you to come see this sensational downtown Aiken property to appreciate its grandeur, restoration & exceptional livability
