If you and fifteen other people you know and love are looking for a house to move into, look no further. Fenwick Hall Plantation in historic Charleston is 5,672 square feet and it sits on 52 gorgeous acres. Clearly, 300 years ago, they were not looking to make a tiny home.
The home has a wealth of history. It dates back to 1730, which is decades before the U.S. was officially the U.S. The plantation has been home to some of the most prominent families in Charleston and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Even though the interior of the home has been remodeled since it was built, the exterior still holds much of the charm of the pre-existing house. The plantation still has its original Georgian brick, woodwork, and fireplaces, and has been adorned with several additions, ancillary structures, and gardens.
Inside the Manor House, which is on the property, there is Georgian Cypress paneling that dates back to the early-to-mid 18th century. Whoever buys this house will have a project on their hands, as the Manor House will need a sensitive historical upgrade. Preparations have already been made and “a well known local restoration expert is available to discuss the renovations plans that have been created by Glenn Keyes, a notable Charleston architect.”
Now, this property is not for people looking to downsize. There is the Manor House, the Carriage House, and the Guest House on the 52-acre land. In total, there are 16 bedrooms, 14 full bathrooms, and two half bathrooms.
These renovated dwellings would make for an idyllic homestead or a relaxing Lowcountry retreat for family and friends. The reflecting pond and surrounding gardens, designed by renowned landscape architect, Sheila Wertimer, has hosted numerous events, weddings, and galas over the past two decades. Draped with massive Grand Oaks, palms, camellias, and magnolias the natural ambiance of Fenwick Hall Plantation and the surrounding gardens is truly unmatched.
This can be all yours for just $8,875,000. The plantation is listed by Handsome Properties and the selling agent is Patricia Byrne. You can check out all of the details and see more of the home on at Handsome Properties’ website.
