Warrenton, NC

300± Deeded Acres

Elgin is an Antebellum-era, 300+/- acre plantation located 60 miles northeast of Raleigh. At the center of the property, at the end of a half-mile long driveway, sits a beautifully restored plantation home surrounded by mature oaks, Magnolias, and hundred year-old boxwoods. Elgin Plantation dates to 1827 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, where  it is described as, “… alone, and in its regional context, one of the major structures of the late Federal period.” The elegantly proportioned, temple-form, main residence and accompanying buildings recently underwent extensive renovations, adding 21st century conveniences to carefully preserved 19th century history and charm. Completing the owner’s compound is a three-car garage with upstairs guest suite, a circa 1790 cabin, and a six-stall barn. Surrounding the house are 120+/- productive acres of cropland and 100+/- acres of hardwoods and pine. Taken as a whole, Elgin is the sum of many fantastic components and represents a uniquely balanced and efficient offering. 

Broker's Comments

Elgin Plantation is a rare opportunity to purchase a historic property in turnkey condition. The surrounding acreage provides ample privacy and recreational opportunities, yet at 300+/- acres, Elgin is a very manageable landholding. For the outdoorsmen or hunter, the property has excellent, untapped potential waiting to be fully realized.
