About 605 Mcdaniel Avenue
605 McDaniel offers a rare opportunity to own a meticulously designed home on one of the most prestigious streets in the established Alta Vista neighborhood of Greenville, South Carolina. Originally built in the 1950s, this gorgeous home was taken down to the studs and rebuilt in 2005. Architecturally designed by Jack Thacker and built by The Rhodes Brothers, the owners took special care to modernize the home and add over 2800 square feet of living space, while maintaining the charm and character of the traditional neighborhood. The manicured grounds and gardens greet you as you enter through the lovely arch and gas lantern over the covered front porch. Inside, you immediately feel the warmth of this home, with its rich wide oak hardwood floors, 9 inch baseboards, thick moldings, and 3 interior gas fireplaces. No detail was missed throughout the home, from the antique baluster at the front staircase, to the wormy chestnut mantel and bookshelves in the breakfast area. The kitchen is truly a chef’s kitchen, with limestone countertops and a maple butcher block island, a 6-burner gas Dacor range, 2 Dacor ovens, 2 Miele dishwashers, 2 sinks, a Dacor warming drawer and Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer. The custom designed small bone cabinetry provides ample storage, including a 3-sided pantry and a wall of drawers and cabinets for storing everything from fine china to linens. The large dining room and living room are an entertainer’s dream, beautifully situated at the front of the home allowing for good flow. A more intimate den overlooks the amazing covered back porch. The main level primary suite is tucked away to the left off the loggia and offers a gracious bedroom and attached en-suite bathroom with 3 large closets, walk-in shower, separate soaking tub, limestone-topped vanities, and a gas converted coal fireplace, original to the home. Upstairs, you will find 3 well-appointed bedrooms, all en-suite, all with plenty of custom closet space. Each bedroom is graciously sized and offers privacy for the family or guests. One level up, on the third floor, is a finished, heated and cooled, attic space that is currently a multi-purpose craft and hobby room as well as additional storage. An original bathroom on the third-floor level leaves a glimpse of life from the 1950’s. Downstairs, off the family den, the central laundry is housed with ample storage for entertaining extras, additional pantry storage and more. Just down the hall from the laundry, a private men’s den, bonus room or children’s playroom awaits the new owner and houses an additional ½ bath.
