The iconic Meng House c. 1832. Stunning. Do I need to say more? That sums up anyone's elaborately-crafted description of this classic Greek Revival mansion in Union, SC. It has been partially renovated and is selling AS-IS. Now is your chance to get a an amazing home or commercial space at a much lower price than it will be when the Seller completes his labor of love. From the road, you will immediately recognize that this columned home is unique. The front and side porches with cement-over-brick columns are virtually identical save the window and door arrangements. There is a grand central hallway flanked by four 18' x 18' rooms. Ceilings soar to 12'. Extensive moulding, 1'-thick heart pine floors, rough-cut logs that form roof trusses and the gigantic windows and hand-applied plaster assure you that this was originally the home of a wealthy family. The fact that much of the historic detailing is still intact speaks to the quality of the original construction. The Meng House rests on 1.5 acres within walking distance of The University of South Carolina' Regional Campus and downtown. And the Sumter National Forest is right next door... an outdoorsman's paradise! The temperate climate of small town Union makes this a wonderful get away or place to raise a family. It's 30 minutes to Spartanburg, a booming center of industry, where you'll find state-of-the-art healthcare. And it's only 1.5 hours to Charlotte, NC or Columbia, SC! So come explore The Meng House and upstate SC!
