Sitting atop 92 acres on a peaceful hillside sits a beautiful piece of history. The James Hagood Ambler family settled into the Pickens Midway district in the mid to latter 1800's. It was during this time they built the Farmhouse you still see today. It was allegedly listed in the Pickens Sentinel in an 1886 article as a boarding house and was a regular stop for travelers on their way to Table Rock and Caesar's Head. In addition to the original house, stands the gear building or carriage house, and crib (storing grains) as well as other buildings and barns added throughout the years. Interesting still is the rock that is shaped like a step: this was to assist people with mounting their horses. The bricks for the foundation were said to have been made on site and the root cellar has a spectacular arched style vault made from these same bricks. Once you step inside, you'll feel as though you've stepped back into another time: massive rooms with high ceilings, painted hardwoods, real wood ceilings and walls upstairs, the remnants' of lives long ago lived echo throughout. There could be 2 bedrooms downstairs, there is a parlor and/or office space, as well as kitchen and living area. The second story has additional bedrooms and office/bonus space. There is even another 3rd, unfinished, story that was used as attic space with it's own set of stairs. A rarity in the modern world of today, this home is truly a canvas of traditional, Southern roots, lying and waiting for someone to further polish it into the masterpiece it was, and has always, been meant to be. Whether it's for a venue, such as bed and breakfast, weddings, or personal space for livestock and horses, homes like this come very few, so save the date, and schedule your private showing today.
