Broker's Comments

Chicora Wood has to be one of the most well-kept, historical properties on the eastern seaboard. We come across really interesting and historical properties regularly, but rarely, if ever, do we come across a historical home that is as inviting as Chicora Wood, which beckons to be used for family gatherings and entertaining friends. The grounds are inspiring and the connection with the waters of the Pee Dee River and surrounding estuaries call for adventure. The land, itself, offers an owner the ability to tailor the landscape to meet their own vision and specific interests.
