    I’m nervous when there are no interior photos and by the description it sounds like the property is being marketed for development. Crossing my fingers the next owner will restore the home.

    Do I need disclaimers with my comments now? 😀 I’m not saying the home will be torn down, just saying I hope a careful hand is given with the restoration if it is sold by a developer that does keep the home.

      Hello Kelly,
      We, My wife and I, bought this property last April 2020.
      We will restore the home while turning it into a B&B, so we can share its history and land.

      Back in 1833 it started as a Plantation, than a school for girls (4 of the 8 doughters)… we bought it from someone who had a restaurant in it. (that’s why the commercial kitchen).

      To honour the history we are named the B&B: The Sunnyside Sisters Bed and Breakfast.
      The land, 23 acres, has lot’s of hidden gems of history! More on that later…

      If all is going as planned we will open in April 2021. But due to covid-19 we have some delays… specially while we are Dutchies from The Netherlands. But we just got our great news and Visa to Enter the US, end of September we’ll start the remodelling.

      We hope to welcome you all to our B&B as soon we are open…

      Kind regards,
      Martijn Broeders

    Found some interior pictures on Century 21 but not many. The sites differ on how many bedrooms there are. The pictures looked fine but I wonder what else is there.

    My wife’s Scottish ancestors settled in this area in the 1750s as wealthy (old Highland Scottish money) land owners. They were primarily tobacco farmers owning several large plantations. The most notable plantation owner was Judith Jefferson, aunt to Thomas Jefferson! Tobacco fields have to be rotated with legumes to keep the soil viable. Colonial farmers didn’t understand this and the soil was exhausted by the early 1800s. The tobacco farmers moved on (including my wife’s ancestors) and a new breed of opportunistic farmer moved in raising racing horses. In fact, this area rivaled the current Bluegrass Region in Kentucky for the breeding of thoroughbred horses. There was also a major racing track that is now the outskirts of Clarksville suburbs. This house is considered the second generation of Plantation homes associated with horse breeding. It’s actually a outstanding example! And it has acreage!
    We spent almost a week in this area in April doing genealogy research. I’ve also done a lot of research on the history of this area if anyone has questions or if you want to know about the local area today, I’d be glad to assist! I love the history of this area!
    I tried to research the history of this house but sadly came up short. It’s not listed on the website covering historical properties in Mecklandburg County, but somebody knows. If anyone can come up with some history on this house, please share it! I’d love to own this house just for the history and connection!

    Looks like someone was using it as a bed and breakfast, perhaps? The industrial kitchen fan and stainless prep tables, multiple umbrella tables, etc. Hopefully the listing is just reflecting its use as a business. What a beautiful place. And a lake house at that!

    Love this house, including interior – beautiful staircase! Also, great grounds. Would seriously consider it if I were relocating to Virginia.
