Agent Remarks

Welcome to Oakleaf. From the moment you enter the property you know you are in a very special place. Featured in magazines and tours, this truly incomparable property in downtown Greenville is an island of beauty and calm in the heart of the city. The classic, roughly 9,800 square foot Southern estate is nestled on three acres, professionally landscaped by noted designer Dabney Peeples. It’s rich history dates from the 1920’s, with many happy memories for “old Greenville” names who raised their families here. The current owners have transformed the home and grounds into a masterpiece of modern comfort and convenience that blends seamlessly with the home’s restored original splendor. Enchanting gardens, majestic oaks, giant magnolias, towering hemlocks and hundreds of boxwoods provide privacy and seclusion for this elegant estate. The English manor main house is a gem all its own. It has five bedrooms and six and a half baths. A stunning, new master bedroom (2020) on the main level features a soaring vaulted ceiling, ample natural light through over-sized windows, and direct access to a small garden stone patio. The luxurious master bath suite has separate marble vanities, separate water closets, a dual entry, fully glassed shower with classic marble, and a large, stylish soaking tub. The spacious separate closets have custom shelving and cabinets. In addition to luxurious, formal dining and living rooms, there is a gourmet “chef’s kitchen” and a full bar. The kitchen includes a Viking double oven; six-burner grill top; full size, side-by-side SubZero refrigerator and freezer; Miele built-in coffee machine; Miele built-in steam oven; two dishwashers; pot filler over stove top; InstaHot water dispenser; and Sharp microwave oven drawer. Large breakfast and keeping rooms adjacent to the kitchen open onto a cozy den with mahogany built-in bookcases, a cypress vaulted ceiling and a handsome gas-log fireplace. The delightful wine cellar has a custom brick floor, original brick walls, an air filtration system, and custom designed wine racks for your finest vintages. A second-floor master suite has a spacious walk-in closet, a bathroom with custom-designed separate vanities and marble countertops, additional closets, and a shower. A second-floor office/study overlooks the front lawn. Resort-quality living is provided by the large, two-story pool house and sizeable pool. It has a bar/kitchen, dining and living space, sauna, workout facility and billiards room. Near the main house there is a two-bedroom, two-bath guest house that includes a bedroom, a full kitchen, living area, and breakfast nook on one side of the house, and on the other side (separated by stairs) a guest suite with a breakfast kitchen. The property has a total of seven bedrooms, nine and a half baths. Included with the third-floor bedroom, closet and bathroom is extra space for children’s activities and another sleeping area. There is also a two-car, drive-through garage; a separate single garage with workshop and storage attic, a koi pond with cascading waterfall; a back-up generator and security system. Winding around and between the four buildings are “old brick” courtyards and walkways lined with boxwood hedges, stone patios, covered entertainment areas, a dazzling array of plants and flowers, and a sunken garden. This is the ultimate home for entertaining and special occasions, for large families, or even for a lavish bed and breakfast. Visit this enchanting place and experience the irresistible lure of its special charm. This is your opportunity to add to the Oakleaf legacy by making your own special memories.
