Main House: The main house is in an idyllic waterfront setting surrounded by live oaks and English gardens. Completed in 1998, the house is comprised of two original 1830s cabins that were masterfully moved and connected to make one dwelling. A master carpenter had the vision for turning the two old cabins into a cohesive and charming plantation house, connecting the historic structures with a bright dining/sitting room combo with vaulted ceilings and hand hewn beams. He also had a vision for the floating staircase up to the cupola. Historic materials were preferred as is evident by the old leaded glass, salvaged wood, and antique bricks. There are three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms.
Caretaker/Overseer’s House: Three bedroom ranch-style house
Guest Lodge: Two bedroom/one bath house for overflow
Other Improvements: Office cabin, covered dock, several barns/sheds, kennels, fenced pasture
