One of kind mansion in a one of a kind neighborhood

This 12,808 square foot, 5 bedroom, 5 full and 3 half bath classic Georgian-styled manor house was built in 1921. As you drive in you will see the original carriage house featuring the high arched entrances made tall enough for the carriage and driver to pull through. Nowadays it's an over sized three car garage, with an upstairs guest suite with living room, bedroom, kitchen, bath and laundry.

As you enter the main home you will notice a beautiful floating staircase to the left and open entry with beautiful wood floors that guide you to the kitchen area. In the kitchen you will find hand-carved cabinetry, an ornamental ceiling above the pewter -topped island, and a beautiful farm style sink made to look like a woven basket.

Upstairs you will find an over sized master suite with custom wood floors, three walk-in closets and a master bath that is more like a spa get away.

One of the best features of this incredible home is the outside, where nestled under the massive live oaks sits manicured grounds, a swimming pool and a pool house where you can entertain family or hundreds of people.

But a home of this magnitude is going to cost you. It is currently listed at $16,500,000.
