526 Reynolds Ave This beautifully renovated 4 (or 5) bedroom, 3.5 bath, 5,000+ square foot brick Victorian has all the charm and character you would expect from a historic home, coupled with the modern conveniences you desire. Known as The Aldrich House, this stately brick home was built in 1901 by a prominent Greenwood family at the turn of the 20th century. This lovingly restored home is located in the heart of the Greenwood Historic District and has been recognized by the County's Historical Society with a Preservation and Restoration Award and Plaque. From its curved brick walls and doorways to its ...octagonal 2-story tower, this house is truly one of a kind! The house is painted inside and out with all historically accurate and period appropriate colors that accent its most unique features. In every room, smooth plaster covers the brick walls which range in thickness from 18-24 inches! The hardwood floors have been refinished throughout the house and the original claw foot tubs are still in use today. As you enter this historic home from the inviting front porch, a large formal dining room greats you. To the right, through a curved doorway is the brick tower room currently being used as a breakfast nook. Also on the first floor you will find the living room, another informal dining (or living) room, the kitchen, an under-the-stairs office area, a guest half bath, the laundry area, a beautiful sunroom, as well as a bedroom suite that could be used as either a Master-on-Main (for one story living) or as an In-Law Suite. This first floor bedroom suite is carpeted and has a full bath with a walk-in shower. The kitchen has custom built-in cabinetry, solid surface countertops, an under mount sink and a gorgeous tile backsplash. The living room has a unique curved alcove perfect for curling up with a good book. The air-conditioned sunroom has all new energy efficient windows and is the perfect place to relax on a hot summer day. A poured concrete patio awaits you in the well-shaded partially-fenced back yard, along with a storage shed and detached garage which offer plenty of storage space for outdoor equipment or a workshop area. The upstairs has two additional bedrooms, another full bathroom, a lovely sitting room, the octagonal tower room currently in use as the fifth bedroom, and the master suite. The second floor bedroom suite has a walk-in closet and a large bathroom with a separate tub and walk-in shower. There are four custom-made mantles over the ventless gas fireplaces in the formal dining room, informal dining/living room, upstairs sitting room, and upstairs master bedroom.The spacious floored attic space offers TONS of storage and is large enough to be converted into a third story if desired. The metal roof was installed in 2011. There are two electric water heaters so big families will never run out of hot water! There are also two 5-ton electric HVAC units that heat and cool the upstairs and downstairs separately. If you love unique historic homes, this is for you!
My Notes: A little over-muddled; but interesting architecture - it's not *quite* traditional Victorian.
