$15M Riverside Plantation Looks as Pristine as a Movie Set

New, 2 comments


Newly on the market for $15M, the insanely decadent Chicora Wood Plantation in Georgetown, S.C. feels more like a perfectly-staged movie set for Forest Gump or Gone With the Wind than a real live listing. Built in 1784 and once one of the most successful rice plantations in South Carolina, the 10,000-square-foot interiors look rather like a preserved time capsule, with elegant, formal furnishings, fireplace-equipped libraries and parlors, and window treatments rife with fancy gown potential. The surrounding 997 acres, which the brokerbabble described as "magnificent moss-draped ancient oak trees and beautiful formal plantings," come with such additional buildings as a summer kitchen, a smokehouse, a driver's apartment, a carriage house, a rice threshing mill and shipping barn (handy!), a gatekeeper's cabin, and even a little school house, all of which have been "restored to their time period with the utmost care."
