612 S Lafayette Street Hemingway Four BR, The ???Palm House?? in Hemingway, SC
The ???Palm House??? is a Southern Plantation style home located on the outskirts of the Town of Hemingway South Carolina. Sitting on a large 1.6 acre lot, this private home was constructed circa 1940 by a prominent physician and local business man.

The home was remodeled head to toe in 2017 maintaining most of the original fixtures including seven various sized and styled crystal chandeliers purchased in 1940 from New York. The later added den and study have the original knotty pine walls & cabinets and the floors are all original hardwood. The staircase was designed to keep older homeowners and children in mind with shorter risers and wide stair treads with a wide landing at the 180o turn leading to a large landing upstairs. The upstairs owners suite is large with a knotty pine office or walk in closet, two walk in closets and a knotty pine bunk room with two built in bunk beds for children or grandchildren. Also situated on the property is a 3 stall garage with a wired two beds, 2 bathrooms apartment that served as the household staff quarters.
