We are delighted to present 407 Mount Forest Circle on Frierson’s Mountain in Easley. This exquisite 1973 Georgian style colonial has been painstakingly restored to a stunning estate home in which the elegance of a bygone era combines with modern convenience and efficiency. The mansion is an ARCHITECTURAL TOUR DE FORCE, with soaring ceilings, spacious rooms, lovely light, big windows, a sprawling lawn, abundance of space for family activities, and charm galore. The colonial style front portico with slate walkway opens to the large formal living room with 20’ ceiling, medallion and hanging chandelier, and a raised hearth ceramic tile fireplace. Every inch of this beautifully sunlit room has been designed to reflect the finery of a classic Georgian home, from the handsome woodwork with finely painted delicate embellishments, to the extra wide stairway winding gracefully to the second story balcony and bedrooms. To one side of the formal living room is a period dining room, adjacent to a modern kitchen with granite counters and cream colored soft-close maple cabinetry, a double oven, tile floors, and a knockout breakfast nook with ceiling fan and ornamental glass accents. Extending beyond the bright kitchen is a drop zone area, laundry closet, and entry to the 2-car attached garage and heated/cooled storage room. To the other side of the formal living room is a bedroom and full bath, as well as a separate office and half bath. The farthest wing of the home boasts a Grand Parlor that is an entertainment Shangri-La, with vaulted ceiling, massive stone fireplace with custom mahogany mantlepiece, a one-of-a-kind English Tewksbury bar, and sliding door access to the inground pool with a new granite grip deck. The second floor of this meticulously restored home includes the master bedroom suite with remodeled bathroom, and two adjoining secondary bedrooms with another full bath. The balcony offers sweeping views of the formal living room and classic entry foyer, and is wide enough for a lovely sitting area. Both fireplaces in the home have Heatilator wood-burning inserts, and several cords of firewood are stacked and ready to use in colder weather. A brand new HVAC system heats and cools the home, along with a mini-split in the Grand Parlor. The entire home was heavily insulated for fuel efficiency and the utility bills happily reflect that. Don’t forget the outdoors…imagine a mid-afternoon dip in the 40 x 20 gunite pool, followed by a relaxing time in the pool house hot tub overlooking your serene mountain estate. The pool house also includes a storage/craft room (with water and sink) and a one-car enclosed garage. Next to the pool house is a separate 34 x 28 three-bay garage and wired workshop that has water piped to it. All roofing has been replaced on the house and both outbuildings and new gutters installed. The 3-acre property includes numerous fruit trees and bushes and backs up to several acres of private wooded land on Frierson’s mountain. More than a home, this is a unique estate property that is move-in ready. Travel time to Greenville, Anderson and Clemson is approximately 30 minutes, and downtown Easley is 5 minutes away.
