The Governor Jefferies House stands at the site of the first house built in what would become a planter's summer colony. Edisto planter Jacob Walter's 1788 summer residence in the town that would bear his name was rebuilt in 1879. For 228 years the property has been cared for by generations of distinguished families with additions and refinements culminating in a recent total renovation of all buildings on the property: house, springhouse, garage, workshop and butler's cabin. The main house is Lowcountry elegant in the tradition of the summer cottages of prosperous plantation owners of the time. The house retains the patina of its history with eleven foot ceilings, wood floors, fine millwork, fireplaces in almost every room, french doors and large porches.
The finished project covered all expected updates including a fabulous kitchen with floor to ceiling cabinets, stone countertops and island, subway tile backsplash, Viking range, fireplace, family dining, and more...
But what makes this property so special is the spectacular landscape. A classic approach of oaks, brick columns and gates opens to a driveway, house and stunning infinity pool, all built on high land sloping to a valley with a spring fed pond. There are eleven historically documented grand live oaks, a 150 year old rare varietal camellia garden, a poolside tropical garden, grape arbors and lawns - so remarkably private that the property feels like a country retreat in the heart of the Historic District. A few blocks away is a thriving arts, design and preservation community, and of course the conservation community that has protected the ACE Basin as the largest natural conservancy in the United States. There are few places finer, more livable, and informally genteel as the Governor Jefferies House.
