Welcome to 231 Screven Street, The John Ernest Poyas House. This circa 1790 home is located on a lovely street in downtown Georgetown with many significant 18th and 19th century structures surrounding it. Double "piazzas" offer plenty of space for outdoor living and overlook a large side yard that is ideal for a gardener. Upon entering the front door you are greeted by a lovely entry hall featuring classic 18th century wainscotting, H and L hinges on a few of the doors, and a simple yet elegant staircase. The large room on the right, currently used as the dining room, has a good cornice and other details that include a large mantel with fluted pilasters and dentil molding. The left side room, the drawing room, has many similar moldings but features a later style mantle. There are total of 7 fireplaces and many on the first floor feature Neoclassical matching mantels, in contrast the second floor mantels are of simpler design. The large kichen has a checkerboard floor and plenty of space to entertain. Note that the mantel in the kitchen is the mate to two others on the first floor. A large laundry and walk in pantry also anchor this space. The first floor also features a charming "back hall', library space, first floor bedroom and bath, and a screened in porch off of the kitchen. Upstairs you will find 4 bedrooms and 3 full baths, a second level porch and a "sleeping porch" that reminds us of days gone by. The house rest on a foundation of English brick and does have the remains of a storage room that was under the house to keep goods dry and cool. Located two blocks off of front street, this "Lovely Old Georgetown House" is a classic example of early Georgetown houses. Public docks are also located behind the Town Clock, an iconic structure in Georgetown that is located within two blocks of the house. Take advantage of the many shops, dining, museums and more! Within the block you will also find a wonderful Robert Mills designed county Court House and a circa 1735 Colonial Banking House where George Washington spoke in 1791. Georgetown is nestled between Charleston and Myrtle Beach SC, both having International Airports. Georgetown also has many parks, a private airport , and multiple locations to be able to take advantage of our 5 rivers! Within 20 minutes you will find the white sands of Pawley's Island, our local beach. Do not miss the chance to turn this property into your downtown estate.
