Welcome to the historic Frederick Nance House, an exceptionally refined Greek revival design attributed to world renowned architect Robert Mills. Having designed some of the nation's most prominent public buildings, including the Washington Monument, this one was uniquely created as a private residence. Nestled in the heart of Newberry, this well-restored mansion was built c. 1822 on land owned by Frederick Nance, a local politician who served as Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina. Also known as Oak Grove, this rare gem has earned its place in the esteemed National Registry of Historic Places.

Featuring over eleven-foot ceilings on both floors, it maintains an abundance of incredibly historic details and original features including dentil moldings, antique glass windows, louvered interior shutters, and wood plank floors. Each room claims its own fireplace. The current owners have worked tirelessly to ensure the home's preservation and legacy by maintaining period chandeliers, ornate mantels, and delicate woodworking throughout. Wall and trim colors, meticulously chosen, add an elegance of classic design. The home showcases museum-quality 18th and 19th century antiques which can be purchased at an additional cost.
