The famous Beaufort estate is on the market for the first time since the early 1970s. The home has basically remained unchanged since its prominent turn in "The Big Chill," so fans who want to sing the Temptations’ “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” while dancing around the kitchen will feel right at home.

In fact, the five-bedroom, eight-bathroom home hasn’t changed much since it was built in 1853. The 7,300-square-foot estate still has its original flooring, millwork and plaster moldings. Known as Tidalholm, it sits on 1.4 acres of land and has a magnificent view of the Beaufort River.

Aside from acting as the backdrop for one of the 1980s biggest dramedies, this historic house actually served as a Union Hospital during the Civil War.

From the 1930s to the 1970s, the estate served as a famous guest house, entertaining many artists, authors and statesmen. In 1974 it returned to life as a private home.
