A small section of the listing:

This is a very unique property. It is silent. The wind crosses the ridge and all you can hear is it's whisper and that of the birds. With the leaves bare as they are now you can see the striking silhouette of their limbs against the blue South Carolina sky, reminding us of why we want this kind of silence in our lives. If this property has caught your attention don't want to miss this opportunity. We have a septic system, and there is public water. There is a security alarm in the house which can be activated, as well as 3 heating units which keep the well insulated home warm. Let your imagination run wild here. Traveler's Rest is a very special place. Make it yours. Not everyone can say they live in a castle!
