House #4 – Patios, Porches, Paths, Part 4

House #4 is one of the oldest in Cheraw and according to my helpful little brochure (since I don’t actually live in Cheraw, but now wishing I did), The Watson home has been the site for several of the Taste of Cheraw events.  And I’m going to make sure I attend the next one!

A large old oak tree reigns supreme on the left side of the home, providing shade for a sprawling bed of different types of hydrangeas.  I almost broke out in song, “Tie a yellow ribbon round the old oak tree . . .”

Another large old oak provides shade over the former law office of South Carolina chief Justice Henry McIver.  This addition was moved to its current site after Captain McIver returned home from the Civil War.

When we approached the house, we spied another artist, so we headed over in her direction to see what she was working on.  

As I was looking at the photo I snapped, I noticed that I captured a tiny dot of paint falling from the paintbrush.  Can you see it?

The porches of house #4 were decorated beautifully!

Who wouldn’t want to spend a morning (or all day) in this swing?


There’s nothing like spending time in this rocking chair! 


These hydrangeas are simply beautiful!

After meandering around the porches, we headed through the grounds toward the back of the house.


We discovered a lovely deck tucked around back!  What a perfect place for that first cup of coffee every morning!

And what about this original smokehouse?  

We don’t see too many of those around anymore.

And last, but certainly not least, the garden shed! She shed, anyone?

I’ve only got two more parts of the garden tour left!  I really enjoyed the tour and hope that you are loving it, too!
