The photo in the listing shows at least 70 shelves for shoes and handbags and what have you, all lit from behind. That’s enough room for 200 or so pairs of shoes.

It is a spectacle.

As is the whole house.

Listed for $5,350,607, the traditional-style house has five bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms on just over an acre in the gated section of the Hollingsworth Park neighborhood, about a 10-minute drive from downtown Greenville.

“This is perhaps the most unique luxury home I’ve ever represented because of the extra steps the owners took to ensure that this home is effectively new,” said listing agent Joan Herlong of Joan Herlong & Associates Sotheby’s International Realty.

She said she had the house professionally inspected, and the owners did every item on the punch list.

“And then some, including fresh interior paint, servicing the HVAC systems, and all new carpet in the bedrooms,” she said.

The house was built in 2019, but shows like new, she said.

“My sellers didn’t just go the extra mile, they paved it,” Herlong said.

The neighborhood is part of a 1,100-acre mixed use development on the site of the former estate of textile magnate John D. Hollingsworth, who died in 2000. Known as a secretive and genius inventor, he left most of his $500 million wealth to Hollingsworth Funds with instructions that most of it went to charity.

Most of the annual distributions go to Furman University, where Hollinsgworth spent a year before returning to his family’s textile equipment manufacturing business.

He lived his life in a trailer on the property, adjacent to his business, John D. Hollingsworth on Wheels.
