This Stunning Beaux-Arts Mansion in Small-Town South Carolina is an Absolute Steal
We Love the Gothic and Renaissance-Inspired Details
40 South Lafayette Street, Mayesville, South Carolina
The tranquil grounds feature mature sasanquas, camellias, magnolia trees, flowering crepe myrtles, and palms as well as a cast iron fountain.
Stunning Corinthian columns support the home’s giant portico.
The two-story portico provides the front porch with plenty of shade.
Natural light spills in from the original leaded-glass windows in the door and transom above.
In keeping with the Beaux-Arts style, Glen Eberly has Gothic and Renaissance elements throughout, like the marbleized columns that flank the main staircase.
Take a Seat
Molding, a marble fireplace, and an intricate ceiling medallion set a formal tone in the sitting room.
Custom-made Scalamandre draperies highlight the oversize windows in the spacious dining room.
The rich red walls combined with the heart-pine wood floors that run throughout the house create a regal effect in the living room.
Sure, it might look a little old, but this modernized kitchen boasts a commercial-grade Viking cooktop and oven.
You’ll find four of the home’s five bedrooms on the second floor, including this comfortable room with inviting yellow-striped wallpaper and its own working fireplace.
Fourth Floor Living Space
The recently renovated fourth floor contains original frosted glass, exposed brick columns, and would make a great a study.
The beautiful in-ground pool is surrounded by a brick terrace, magnolia trees, flowering crepe myrtles, and palms.
This one-bedroom, one-bathroom cottage was moved onto the property in the early twentieth century and restored as a guesthouse with full bath, full kitchen, and two original fireplaces.
We didn’t think it was possible, but Glen Eberly is even prettier come nightfall.
