Originally constructed in 1913, the Rocky River estate has been a historical landmark of Anderson, South Carolina for over a century. The original owners, Mr. & Mrs. Seybt, named the property, "Valley View," due to the elegant architecture of the home and the scenic land surrounding it.
Over the years, the house has become home to many families, including that of former U.S. Congressman, John C. Taylor. When we came across the property in 2003, we knew we wanted to preserve the beauty and character of the estate to keep its story alive. Its rustic charm and traditional ambiance make it the perfect setting to celebrate all of life's greatest moments.
