The Elizabeth Arden House is a truly exquisite property located in the historic district of downtown Summerville. It is privately situated on the area's most coveted street and walkable to the town square, restaurants, shops, and tennis courts. The home was originally built in 1897 by A. J. Baird for Mr. Samuel Lord, a Charleston attorney. World-renowned businesswoman, Elizabeth Arden, purchased the southern Victorian-style estate as a summer home and sold the property in 1954 while creating her cosmetic empire. It is said that Arden painted the front door a different color for each season, but it now remains red, the inspiration for the entrances to her salons. With Charleston-style double piazzas, this property boasts timeless vintage details and exudes welcoming, southern charm. The home has five bedrooms and features soaring 12 ft. ceilings, original heart pine floors, hand-carved moldings, six fireplaces, two laundry rooms, an elevator, and a spacious study on the first level. The chef's kitchen is equipped with custom cabinetry, a Viking range and a spacious pantry. A designated bar room is located off the kitchen and dining room. A picturesque exterior accentuates the manicured grounds, pool house with kitchen and three separate cottages. Additional exterior features include a garden by renowned landscape architect Robert Marvin, a pool, two gazebos, fountain and wrought iron fence surrounding the premises. The property was purchased by the current owners from Mrs. Lillian Bostwick Phipps' estate who was married to the late Ogden Phipps. Their daughter was the fashion designer Lilly Pulitzer. Enriched with stories and legends of previous owners, this historic residence in downtown Summerville is highly regarded and offers a truly remarkable opportunity.
