Welcome to the historic Frederick Nance House, an exceptionally refined Greek revival design attributed to world renowned architect Robert Mills, designer of the Washington Monument and U.S. Treasury. Nestled in the heart of Newberry, this well-restored mansion was built circa 1822 on land owned by Frederick Nance, a local politician who served as Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina. Also known as Oak Grove, this rare gem has earned its place in the esteemed National Registry of Historic Places. Its stately faade boasts a full-height monumental tetra-style Roman Doric Portico. The two-story, brick main house offers 4,620 square feet of beautifully conserved living space. The interior includes a symmetrical design of eight main rooms, four-over-four with a central grand hall entrance and curved staircase. Featuring over eleven-foot ceilings on both floors, it maintains an abundance of original features including moldings, antique glass windows, louvered interior shutters, and heart pine floors. The current owners have worked tirelessly to ensure the homes preservation and legacy. The home showcases museum-quality 18th and 19th century antiques which can be purchased at an additional cost. Of further significance, the home is accompanied by two guest houses offering an additional 1,693 square feet of living space and an original, unrestored brick living quarters. This stunning example of neoclassical grandeur is a rare opportunity to own a national treasure.
