Built for Robert Stewart, a prominent Newberry merchant in 1842, the 6,500 sq. ft. Greek Revival “The Stewart House” residence is Newberry’s most intact historical dwelling. Years ago, in an effort to save the home from demolition, the home was moved from Newberry, SC to the 200-acre Stewart Landing property. Early this year, construction began to fully-restore the 181-year-old dwelling as the community Clubhouse.
The two-story rectangular frame dwelling with a pedimented double-tiered portico projecting from the façade features fine classical ornamentation. Plain square wood balustrades connecting four square wood pillars on each porch tier were recreated using locally-harvested cypress wood to weather the South Carolina climate.
The raking cornice of the front pediment displays finely-detailed dentils. A molded archtrave with tracery fan and sidelights frame each floor’s central doorway and open to an open foyer with grand staircase.
The expansive grand hall of the two-story home leads your eye to the back wall of glass doors overlooking breathtaking views of the lake and the point amenities from the massive double-tiered porch with ceilings painted in haint blue. The Clubhouse features a full kitchen with large island adjacent to a dining/meeting room, four large private rooms with fireplaces with a total of five bathrooms, convenient on each level.
Follow the back stairs down to the favorite resident secret—The 1842, the walk-out hangout on the ground level of the Clubhouse, complete with flat screen TVs to watch your favorite teams, billiards, game tables, darts, and comfortable sofas and chairs in private nooks for small group entertaining.
