About this property
Mid Century Modern. Sleek and iconic. Defined by clean lines, minimal ornamentation, and high functionality, the style has an undeniably timeless appeal. MCM architecture is further known for its use of expanses of glass, flat planes, and a strong connection to nature. There is no finer example in the upstate than 120 Hathaway Circle. This mid century masterpiece was the designed by Craig and Gaulden in the early sixties for a Furman psychology professor. The design was then enhanced in the 80’s with the addition of a wing that compliments the original dwelling beautifully. Desirably located on the north end of the city between downtown and Traveler’s Rest. Only a stone’s throw from the coveted Swamp Rabbit Trail.
120 Hathaway was carefully constructed in the center of a private 2 acre lot, taking care to nestle amongst the trees, as bringing nature inside was a key element to its design. The mature, parklike setting allows for total privacy with a stream, gardens and footbridge in the front yard and a completely fenced outdoor oasis in the rear.
The interior is a marvel with its mix of natural elements (wood and stone) and floor to ceiling glass throughout. The original main level offers a study, open living and dining flanked with glass doors on either ends. The sunken Living Room opens to a large deck and dining to the pool terrace. A spacious galley kitchen has been beautifully renovated with a high end Viking gas range and beautiful finishes. The primary bedroom suite is a gem with a huge picture window overlooking the beautiful grounds. A large dressing room with closets and big bath round out the original main level. A central open staircase winds down to the “Rathskeller” (German for a bar/gathering area in a basement. Your prerequisite to a man cave). The lower terrace level offers a large den or man cave with a fireplace, two bedrooms, a bonus room and a large storage room. Back on the main level, the addition leaves little to be desired and could be its own self sustained home within a home. Offering a living room, a second full guest or catering kitchen, two secondary bedrooms and an additional primary suite with en suite bath and private terrace.
The park-like backyard is your entertainment and recreation hub, complete with a 20’ x 40’ swimming pool surrounded by flagstone patio, fire pit, fully fenced yard, and a commercial-grade children’s playground that will make the neighborhood kids jealous.
