Property Photo


Landmark 1800s farmhouse on 1.65 acres around the corner from the Lake Murray Dam and Saluda River, 5 minutes from Lexington, 8 minutes from Irmo and Harbison, close to interstates, and 20 minutes from Columbia. The historical significance is extensive. The front office once served as the post office for Selwood, one of a dozen communities that was abandoned to make room for Lake Murray. A fraktur mural has been painted above one of the many fireplaces. During the 1920s, officials drew preliminary plans for the original Lake Murray Dam. The main level offers an expansive layout added to over time. The property served as a home for several families and would be perfect for another. It has also been zoned as mixed-use (residential or commercial) and could be used in many forms such as a restaurant, event venue, or bed and breakfast. The electrical and plumbing has been updated in this home.
