      What id the deal with the inconsistency of price between various sites…240,000 or 1.7 million? There is a bit of a difference! Love the house! been a an of southern plantations all my life!

        As stated in the first comment (which they’ve lowered the price since then), you can also buy 160+ acres for $1.7 million. The house is on 10 acres for $240k.

  2. All those outbuildings! I’d really love to rehab this place.

    Demolition?? Watch your language, agent! Lovely old place needing some work. I would consider taking out the sleeping porch, which adds no beauty & little convenience to the house. Whoever put up the rear additions at least had the good idea of doing 2 & keeping it symmetrical. Some of the outbuildings are interesting; others could actually go. I think I see the remains of a formal garden too — would be wonderful to restore that.

      Laurie, the demolition language bothered me also, especially since the realtor is one of the owners and the property has been in her family since 1911. Let’s hope she only meant that the outbuildings are not in good repair, which seems obvious.
      There’s a lot of history here, although the connection with the slave ship crimes of a distant Lamar cousin that are mentioned in the history links is a bit of a stretch.
      The house deserves 20-30 acres to avoid having a subdivision in the back yard, and paying for more land would be worth it. The county info shows the whole farm of 320 acres; maybe it’s too much to ask to keep it all together but that would be ideal. The house seems to be in remarkable condition overall. I would love to have seen the interiors a few years ago with 100 years of accumulated stuff.

    Lovely, lovely and so much history. I cannot imagine owning this and not living in it. The history of the plantation is very interesting as is the family. If walls and grounds could talk…..what whispers might we hear? I’ve added this to my favorites.

    I think I would buy this for the brick barns and silo alone.

    Ok, I love this place but I have a soft place for plantation homes in the south. It would be my dream to find one that needs work in the area of GA we want to move too….however, that being said there was a slave village on this property and as a Clearer I am just going to say upfront that place is going to need a lot of clearing. A lot.

    From what I gather, there is a lot of work just to make the main house livable? From what I’ve found it seems new roof, electrical, well, plumbing, water damage, so probably mold. Also, no A/C or working heat? Is this all correct?

      Water damage doesn’t necessarily mean mold.

      It’s always better to contact the agent to verify what the house may or may not need.

    I’m trying to get more info on this property for our family history. Still confused by the listing being over 2.7 mill then dropped to 240k (was this a typo, supposed to be 2.4 mill?) And then back to 1.7? Any updated info would be much appreciated!

    Does anyone know if the house sold? I can’t find an active listing. Thanks!

      You’ll need to call the agent. Zillow keeps switching to the $240k price with the house and the $1.7 million price with land only about every other week so I don’t know if the house is for sale any longer. As Jim mentioned, it’s no longer on the agents website.

    The house was sold and is currently under restoration.

    Thanks for the information! So glad someone finally invested in this place. I live nearby and admire it so.
    Does anyone know if the the other acreage is completely off the market since the house was sold?
