Listed by Holly May – Blackstream | Christie’s International Real Estate.. Welcome to the Gelder-Roper House, (ca. 1917), a stunning Dutch Colonial Revival, listed in the Laurens Historic District Registry. The grand residence will take you back in time while enjoying many modern and recently upgraded amenities. The home was designed by local architect, C. Gadson Syre (1876-1933). His buildings were known for their solid construction, and this house is no exception. Sip your morning coffee and wave to passersby on the nostalgic, wraparound front porch that adorns the entire front of the home. Upon entry, the spacious grand foyer with 10’ ceilings, invites you in to an entertainer’s paradise. To the left is a parlor once used to receive and entertain guests. Further on is an office/den with a half bath. To the right of the foyer is a large formal living /music room with a wood-burning fireplace as the centerpiece. Just past the stairs is the chef’s kitchen featuring a double-oven, gas cooktop, a wet-bar, and cabinets galore for storage. The breakfast area sits off the kitchen next to the formal dining room and features a pantry. Everyone will gather comfortably and love the 26’ x 22’ great room, added in 1998, at the rear of the home featuring a 14’ coffered ceiling and built-in bookcases. The gorgeous windows in this room blend seamlessly with the original architecture of the home lighting up the room with natural light. Up and beyond the double staircase, the second level affords 4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, a 29’x13’ bonus room with a wood-burning fireplace, a sleeping porch that has been enclosed, and a half bath with a newly added laundry area. The third level features a landing large enough for a small living area, two more bedrooms, and a full bathroom. In the basement, you will find a recreation room, a laundry room, kitchenette, and an abundance of unfinished storage. Located on 1.92 acres, the backyard has plenty of room for outdoor activities and entertaining. A detached 2-car garage sits at the end of the driveway just past the porte-cochere. Notable improvements include a new roof in 2022; a whole house water filtration system in 2022; all galvanized plumbing has been replaced 2022; an added laundry area on the 2nd level, and more.
