ABOUT THE HOME & NEIGHBORHOOOD

210 S Townville St Neighborhood
The Livingston-Stribling House is located in the Historic Downtown District of Seneca, South Carolina. Residents of this neighborhood include both retired folks, couples, singles and young families raising their children. This location is walking distance to many amenities and conveniently located close to schools, library, churches, shopping, and recreation opportunities.

Seneca is a small, friendly community located in beautiful Oconee County. There has been a consistent, steady growth in the population and the economy in Oconee County. The size, location, and character of this home would allow for the home to be used as a Bed & Breakfast.

The zoning ordinances would allow for this because the lot is large enough and there is plenty of parking (both on the street and off the street). The house is located on the corner of South Third Street and South Townville Street. The house is situated on the highest point in the City of Seneca. The front porches face the downtown and the Blue Ridge Mountains, which can be seen in winter months, from the upstairs balcony.

OH THOSE SOUTHERN PORCHES!

210 S Townville St Porches

Porches are a part of living in this home. There are available North, South, East or West. This allows for a great deal of outdoor living in a warm Southern climate. On a hot day, you can find a shady spot. On a windy, or chilly day, you can find a protected area. And, varying sizes of porches make for options in entertaining. A smaller porch can be used for a small group. And, the porches, decks, and yard work great for a very large gathering as well.

SITE

Landscaping design is based on an heirloom plan, which incorporates traditional shade trees and varieties of trees shrubs and blooming perennials. Trees include: Crepe myrtle, Dogwood, Pecan, Oak, Maple, O’Sage Orange, Tulip Poplar, Hemlock, Holly, Ornamental Plum, and others. Shrubs include Tea Olive, Camellia, Various Hollies, Rhododendron, Azaleas, Gardenia, Blueberries, Ligustrum, japonica, and others. Blooming perennials include: Spirea, Iris, Dutch iris, Lilies, Snowdrops, Narcissus, Daffodils, Coreopsis, roses, and various others. Most of the year, there is something blooming in the yard.

Arborists have advised that the O’ sage orange tree in the west yard is at least 200 years old. This is not a native species for this area. These trees are native to Missouri and Oklahoma. Therefore, it is likely that the tree was planted by Indians, perhaps as a part of a trade route. Nearby Oconee Station Park has information about such a trade route organized through the area.
