    Description

    Welcome to Walterboro - an undiscovered jewel of the historic Lowcountry - UNSPOILED, FRIENDLY, & BEAUTIFUL. This grand historic home sits on the site of the first home in Walterboro, SC! In 1978 Jacob Walters - the town's founder - built his home overlooking the Hickory Valley. The small community of Walterboro was built around this magnificent property. Sadly, the home was destroyed by the ''great cyclone of 1879.'' Secluded & imminently private, the current home sits on the same 7 acres boasting 150 year old massive live oaks, magnolias, azaleas, camellia garden, pecan grove, & spring fed freshwater pond complete with a charming gazebo. These majestic live oaks - registered with the Live Oak Society - stand as a sentinel preserving the beauty and history of this Lowcountry gem.This stately home, now known as the Governor Jefferies House  SC's Governor Richard Manning Jefferies resided here in the 1940s - was fabulously restored in the early 21st century. This home hosted the South Carolina State Historical Society in their annual Tour of Homes in 2013. The current owners have added subtle modern touches that don't distract from the original grandeur of the 7 fireplaces, wainscoting, & 12 ft ceilings. Although secluded, this home is an easy walk to downtown that is filled with antique shops, boutiques, Colleton Museum & Farmers Market, SC Artisans Center, Colleton Center for performing arts, & Colleton County Arts Council. Natural, unspoiled beauty abounds  the ACE River Basin which is one of the largest conservation areas & wildlife refuges in the continental US....also, there is the Great Swamp Sanctuary with miles of paved and elevated board walks thru Walterboro's spectacular lowland hardwood swamp/forest....many black water rivers, beautiful beaches, & fabulous state parks to visit and enjoy. You can delight in activities such as boating, hiking, fishing, hunting, swimming, canoeing, & watching our vast wildlife year round with our fine weather. Walterboro is truly a hidden jewel where one can relish in the relaxed lifestyle of the Lowcountry, but be within easy access to all the benefits of those spectacular cities such as Charleston, Beaufort, Savannah. If you are looking for a majestic home in a friendly town without the hustle and bustle of traffic, noise, & crowds, then you must come tour 203 Witsell St. This is truly a ONCE in a LIFETIME opportunity for you to care for & hold dearly a piece of history in the beauty of the Lowcountry.
