Wicklow has a colorful history. The main house was built circa 1835 by Rollins Lowndes. It is a charming Greek Revival structure with rarely seen Egyptian Revival woodwork. In the early 1900’s the Kinloch Gun Club acquired the property, added an additional wing to the house, and used the residence for a temporary club house. In later years Cortes Lucas became owner of the property. Cortes was a direct descendent of Jonathan Lucas, the inventor of the rice mill, and the manager of Kinloch Plantation. In recent years the property was owned by a member of the DuPont family who hunted with her family next door when they owned Kinloch. Mrs. DuPont loved Wicklow and made many improvements to the property during her tenure.
Today, Wicklow’s grounds are spectacular framed with azaleas, camellias, huge live oaks and pines. A landscaped pond is adjacent to a long driveway leading to the main house and offers easy access to the guest house, manager’s residence, garden shed and pump house. The buildings have been recently painted and upgraded in the last four years. There are numerous upgrades to all buildings including a new heating and cooling system in the main house, new water treatment system and fiber optic lines.
Wicklow Hall is well located less than 15 miles from restaurants and marinas in downtown Georgetown and 43 miles to historic Charleston. There are two boat landings just minutes from Wicklow. One is located at the South Carolina DNR Landing on the North Santee River and the South Island Ferry is located on the Inter Coastal Waterway.
Wicklow Hall will appeal to anyone wanting a secluded place in one of the most beautiful pristine areas on the Atlantic Coast.
