The Historic Victorian Renovation
This sprawling yellow Queen Anne style Victorian home, deemed “The Yellow Lady,” was built in 1903 located in Conway, South Carolina. The Jordan family fell in love with the property for its uniqueness, beautiful view overlooking Kingston Lake and its close proximity to the historic district of downtown Conway. Unfortunately, there was 107 years of wear and tear and it lacked modern amenities.
The renovation started from the ground up, replacing all 40 of the original brick piers to strengthen the structure and straighten the floors. In addition, the entire electrical system was inadequate and had to be completely rewired to current code standards. In uncovering the structure of the home, the original hardwoods and victorian-style wavy glass had been stripped away over the years.
The renovation took a year in its entirety before the Jordan family moved into their historic home. The home boasts 3,900 sq ft indoor living space, another 1,000 sq ft outdoor living space, 4 bedrooms, 5 baths (including one with a centurion claw foot tub with the original fixtures), a modernized kitchen and butler’s pantry, a great room, formal dining and living rooms, office and sewing rooms, and a receiving parlor.
