WHITEHOLM 115 Briarwood Lane stands the test of time. Whiteholm was named by the Trenholm family of New York and South Carolina, just one of the distinguished families who have been stewards of this antebellum home. The setting is a classic Summerville garden of magnolias, camellias, azaleas, tea olives and hydrangeas, exceptionally private, on perhaps the most beautiful tree canopied lane in the historic district. From the circular entry driveway to the spectacular live oaks that define the grounds, this property is remarkable for its historic integrity. The architecture is sensitively preserved protecting the rich patina of heart pine floors, grand paneled central hall, 12 foot ceilings, tall six over six windows, five fireplaces, and architectural scale that is timeless and livable.The original house was probably completed in 1815 as evidenced by a craftsman's etching in a windowsill uncovered during a recent meticulous exterior restoration. 115 Briarwood Lane's authenticity is a testament to excellent, solid construction, and it is this standard that inspires the brilliantly designed renovations. In a seamless blend of historic and state of the-art, charm and sophistication coexist. Flanking the center hall is the distinctive 30' long drawing room with bookcases at both ends, and a formal dining room. There is a family room and a brick floored sunroom currently set up as an office. Extending from the original footprint are two wings that house the downstairs master bedroom suite and a fabulously sleek kitchen. Both extensions have windows on three sides with garden views all around. The stunning new kitchen includes a wall of glass and French doors opening to the deck and swimming pool, a mud room/laundry room, and the most refined butler's pantry. The kitchen itself is elegant and beautifully functional, and with 8 foot doors opened to the outdoors, is the ultimate heart of the house for entertaining or daily life. On the second floor are four bedrooms and a study as well as spacious attic storage. At the rear of the property is a charming garden house/garage used as an art studio. Included in documents is a detailed list with photographs of all recent restoration and renovation, a full history of the property, and floor plans.
