The property is a unique residence, built on part of the historic Hopewell Plantation and set in beautiful lawns and gardens with towering mahogany trees.
The land size is just over 3 acres and the oldest part of the house – the arched entrance boasts walls three feet thick. Both sections of the house are one-two levels and both open to the shared courtyard.
In the main house, all the rooms on the ground floor open to the courtyard or veranda – a dining room, sitting room, TV room, guest bathroom and kitchen and upstairs are three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Heather Swann updated the house about 30 years ago adding elegant arched coral stone doorways, pickled pine tray ceilings and an Oliver Messel style, open sitting room with bar – perfect for entertaining. There are a number of outbuildings presently used for storage as well as a double garage.
