Today's Home: The Farmstead

Deer and wild turkeys wander onto Stephen and Tara Chostner’s 3-acre Aiken estate. It’s one of the things they love about their home in The Farmstead subdivision.


Once a dairy farm, The Farmstead has rural charm though it’s only a few miles from the Aiken city limits.

“It gives you the feel of being away from town, a little more privacy, a little more openness,” Tara said.

A covered patio on the back of the 6,000-square-foot home offers a comfortable spot for observing the wooded area behind the house, while the bank of windows in Stephen’s office above it lends a feeling of being lost in the pines.

The home features three bedrooms with full bathrooms on the first floor, including the master suite featuring French doors to the back porch, a large master bath and a walk-in closet.

The second floor was designed for relaxing and entertaining, with three bedrooms, a game room, a home gym and a sitting area with a television and wet bar.
