SELLER MOTIVATED! Bring all reasonable offers and let's make a deal! If you love history and historical properties, look no further! This is the one you have been waiting on!! Located in the history rich Lowcountry, this home is on Wadmalaw Island, the self-proclaimed ''Back Porch of the Lowcounty'', a refreshingly unpopulated and quiet island hidden under acres of live oaks! This property was built in 1928 as a Rosenwald Schoolhouse, these schools have been identified by the National Trust of Historic Preservation as ''America's 11 Most Endangered Historic Places'' and in addition to many other articles can also been found in Southern Living Magazine in an article titled ''The Story of the Lost Schoolhouses'', referred in the listing pictures!The owner has been contacted by South Carolina Department of Archives and History and the National Trust of Historic Preservation and given tons of information and literature regarding the Rosenwald Schools. Per the South Carolina Department of Archives and History this home is eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. We have been told listing in the National Register is not regulatory but is rather an honorific status and does make the owner eligible to apply for some financial incentives. This property was turned into a residence sometime in the 1960's once desegregation took place and has been well maintained and still has its original bead board ceiling and walls and heart of pine flooring. The original windows in this home are amazing and let it tons of natural lighting, which was a signature trademark of these schools, as construction for them was completed in an east/west direction to let in the light during the school hours! The original schoolhouse was set up as what is known as a "Two Teacher Community School" with two 22x30 Class Rooms and one 12x20 Industrial Room. As you enter the front door through the added screened in porch, you are greeted by the soaring 12 foot ceilings and a large open space which would have been one of those 22x30 class rooms that is currently utilized as the living/entertaining space. There is a large wood burning fireplace and a wood burning stove as well, as you walk through the master suite is located to your left, which was once the Industrial Room, the secondary 22x30 class room has been turned into the kitchen and 2 additional bedrooms. The previous owners did add the bathrooms to the property, the bathroom areas are located in what would have been the secondary entry door to the second class room, which is the only structural change to the school house! The closets in this property go up the entire 12 foot so don't feel like you are going to have a shortage of storage space here! Outside you have almost 2 acres of gorgeous property surrounding you with those famous live oaks scattering the property. There is also a workshop with power and lean-to's for extra storage, a fenced in area behind the workshop for your animals and a 2-car carport as well! If you have been looking for that peace and quiet you just can't get in most places in the Lowcountry, you have an abundance of it here! You are located just minutes to Johns Island, James Island, Downtown, Mount Pleasant, West Ashley and Interstate access, but can come home in the evening to a beautiful wooded view from your screened in front porch to unwind from the day! Because of the historical value of this property we have attached several articles and literature that we have regarding the Rosenwald Schoolhouse but invite you to do a search yourself to see what kind of historical meaning this property has to offer!
