 COLUMBIA (April 29, 2016) — Previews® Property Specialists George Walker and Susie Carlson with Coldwell Banker United, REALTORS®’ Midtown office have listed a one-of-a-kind custom-designed estate at 1626 Sumter Highway, Camden, South Carolina. Situated on over 60 acres of land, the 10,000-square-foot residence is listed for $2.995 million. The multi-dimensional property may be acquired with up to 500 additional acres, a steel utility barn with a full kitchen and office, and a three bedroom guest cottage.



The sellers, Rigdon and Patricia Boykin, originally purchased the land in 2005 and immediately began to clear the land for construction. The land became the source of inspiration in designing the home as its rolling hills and potential pond sites were revealed. The Boykins wanted a home that would showcase the beautiful land rather than overshadow it. The home was designed by New York architect, John Milnes Baker and John Dickerson and built by Kenneth Baker.


The Frank Lloyd Wright-inspired design features large windows and wood enhancements, perfectly complimenting the views and providing a sense of spaciousness. With five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, and three half bathrooms, the estate still maintains a warm and inviting appeal.  An open-concept design offers large rooms and an abundance of natural light.


The kitchen is equipped with custom cabinets, stainless steel countertops, high-end appliances, and two pantries. Each of the home’s five bedrooms features walk-in closets and sweeping views of the property. The finished basement includes an entertainment area, theater space, wine cellar, and elevator to reach the rest of the home.


“Mr. and Mrs. Boykin put a tremendous amount of thought into the design of the home, which beautifully highlights the property,” said George Walker, sales associate, Midtown, Coldwell Banker United, REALTORS®.  “Only the highest quality materials and talent went into the design and construction of this home.”


Outside, two man-made ponds are surrounded by an exquisite variety of imported trees and shrubs. The landscaping has been carefully designed to complement the design of the home and the surrounding land.
