Location: Georgetown, S.C.
The Skinny: With more than 1,000 acres on the banks of the Pee Dee River, this grand plantation looks largely the same as it did more than 200 years ago, when the Greek Revival mansion was first constructed on this property. Organized around rice production, an endeavor that produced 1.5M pounds in 1860, the plantation was worked by some 630 slaves that same year. Today, Chicora Wood Plantation is a historic relic—listed on the National Register of Historic Places—but also continues to function as a working farm, producing sod. Original outbuildings like the kitchen, smokehouse, and carriage house remain, as does the historic rice threshing mill. An all-encompassing conservation easement ensures that no part of the property can be redeveloped, so the $15M price tag will have to be put up by a wealthy preservationist.
