Introducing to the remarkable Charles Pinckney Wofford House. Originally built in 1909, the property has been meticulously restored. Located across from Converse College, the prominent home stands out as the "gateway" for Converse Heights.
Designed by notable Atlanta architect, Gottfried Norman, the Wofford House combines neoclassical architecture (with its generous arches and columns) with elements from the arts & crafts movement.
Step through the original tongue and groove french doors into the charming foyer featuring a barrel ceiling. To the right of the foyer is the West Parlor, which makes for a wonderful study and library. Opposite the West Parlor is the invitingEast Parlor with a beautiful fireplace. Entertaining is a dream with this elegant dining room and butler's pantry leading into a gorgeous kitchen. Kitchen boasts commercial appliances, granite, large breakfast bar and custom cabinetry.
Guests and family can flow right out of the kitchen onto the oversized covered porch for after dinner cocktails overlooking the manicured landscaping and grounds.
Up an awe inspiring staircase, there are 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths. Both baths upstairs were beautifully renovated and feature basket weave marble tile floors + subway tile showers. The master suite is luxuriously accommodating with a fireplace, dressing room and its en suite and a very charming adjacent office(formerly the sleeping porch). 4th bedroom is currently used as a cozy den. Two guest bedrooms and a private balcony with a hot tub round out the second floor.
Up another flight of stairs, you'll discover a 3rd floor heated/cooled attic that makes a great storage, craft or a media room. A large full basement also makes a great space for home gym, wine cellar and a man cave.
Home has been featured in countless publications and newspapers. There was not a single detail overlooked during this tasteful renovation. Come discover one of Spartanburg's crown jewels situated in it's most charming and desirable neighborhood.
Converse Heights is a classic American neighborhood. Families enjoy walks on sidewalks along tree-lined streets. Neighborhood children walk to Pine Street Elementary School, and in the afternoons can be found playing in Happy Hollow Park. Housing options range from two-bedroom bungalows to some of Spartanburg's most spacious and elegant homes.
Over the years, Converse Heights has been home to many of the city's civic and business leaders. In fact, neighborhood residents have made their mark far beyond the boundaries of Spartanburg: James F. Byrnes was Secretary of State to President Harry S. Truman, and Roger Milliken, who died in 2011, was an international leader in the textile industry.
Converse Heights is conveniently situated between Downtown and Eastside shopping centers. It's also in a great spot for those who enjoy recreation -- Spartanburg's newly renovated YMCA, public tennis courts and fields at Spartanburg High School, and the popular Cottonwood Trail are all within walking distance.
