Truly unique opportunity to own a quintessential Victorian estate consisting of a historically-significant 4740 sq.ft. main house with 3 guest suites, formal gardens, and 4 separate dependencies: a 441 sq.ft. guest apartment and 3 2-bedroom homes: the 1115 sq.ft. Bungalow, the 775 sq.ft. 1920s Cottage, and a 1425 sq.ft. Hay Barn. Also a pool and pool house surrounded by almost 2 acres of impeccably landscaped gardens and water features. Linwood Inn currently operates as the premier Summerville bed & breakfast, plus 4 longer-term rentals. The rental spaces come fully-furnished and appointed for a turnkey transition should you desire to continue the business. Current owners offer to stay on to advise. The property would make an ideal family home, Airbnb, or wedding and event rental space. MAIN HOUSE Built 1883, 5 bedrooms, 5.5 baths, 4740 sq.ft Linwood Inn is located on the corner of Palmetto Street and Richardson Avenue in the heart of Historic Summerville, SC. You may access the estate from either of 2 driveways with separate parking lots for privacy between the main house and the rental homes. After meandering through a garden path, you're met with a Hollywood-perfect view of the main house. A deep full front porch accommodates rocking chairs and hammocks. The main entrance to the home is via a grand hall lit by antique crystal chandeliers and floored with antique heart pine. It is flanked by a formal drawing room and library. Each features architectural details such as graceful arches, bay windows, fireplaces and built-in shelves. To the left is the Owners' Suite. The master bedroom features another fireplace (one of 9 in the main house). The large master bath has dual sinks, a jetted tub plus glass shower and walk-in closet. An adjoining private sitting room and half bath occupy what was originally the enclosed sleeping porches. To the right of the hall is a formal dining room with yet another fireplace and built-in china cabinet. Behind this is a massive informal dining room and entertaining space open to a modern, wood-paneled kitchen. The kitchen has a gas stove, under cabinet lights, and a pot filler. A pantry accommodates storage plus and additional fridge and freezer. Very large utility/laundry room with full bath is behind and accommodates the operating space for the bed & breakfast. It would also make an ideal mud room. It opens to the trellised wrap-around back porch, a lovely place to enjoy the evening breezes and look over the gardens. The porch includes a potting station and sink in addition to ceiling fans and plenty of seating space. A cellar beneath the house can be used for storage or wine and a large shed behind the Bungalow provides further storage. BED & BREAKFAST SUITES Upstairs in the main house are 3 guest suites -- Courtney, Matthew, and Brandt -- as announced on decorative brass door knockers. They are connected by a landing outfitted as a reading room with bookshelves and window seat overlooking gardens. A refrigerator and microwave tucked into a closet makes this a perfect place to relax with morning coffee or afternoon tea. The current owners have installed new central heat, air and insulation throughout the bed & breakfast area. The Courtney Suite is a more feminine ladies or honeymoon suite. It features pale blue walls and a romantic fireplace. The charming Victorian bathroom/changing room has a claw foot tub, separate shower and even a fireplace. Staying here, you're transported back to another era. The Brandt Suite is a more masculine counterpart with navy walls and another fireplace.

The Matthew Suite has 2 bedrooms, the first with a fireplace. A bath connects it to the second bedroom with 2 twin beds overlooking the pool. The resort-style saltwater pool was recently resurfaced. It is surrounded by a brick patio with plenty of room to lay out in the sun and hedges tall enough to provide complete privacy. It also includes a po
