December 6, 2018

Oh my! Just imagine living among all of that history! When Sherman’s troops were marching south, this house was spared. That’s because it was Sherman’s private residence while in that area. I can imagine him having meetings down in the room with the exposed beams. Built in 1832. Located on 177 acres in Barnwell, South Carolina. Original mantels and moldings. The long driveway up to it is lined with moss draped Cedar trees. Four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 4,200 square feet. $1,125,000.

From the Zillow listing:


Incredible opportunity to own a truly authentic Southern Plantation. When Sherman”s army marched through the south, they fortunately spare this historic plantation home as it was selected as Shermans personal residence during his stay in Allendale County. This magnificent Greek Revival home dates to 1832 and offers 4 BR and 3 BA, with historic mantels and moldings intact. A charming avenue lined with Cedar Trees draped in Spanish moss complements the main house”s imposing porch and colonnade. Once inside original details and the striking bead board ceilings will delight any visitor.
