The ‘Big House’, as the primary mansion is known, is a remarkable imitation of a plantation house and is located on 35 hectares of land overlooking the North Newport River on Hampton Island, Georgia. It is considered one of the crown jewels along the coast of Georgia. Take a tour below – and when you’re done, hop on over to our page dedicated to the world’s best homes for more. The ‘Big House’ comprises a total of 557 square meters of space and includes a veranda that offers a view on the river. The special pinewood flooring, massive arched fireplaces and four-meter high ceilings make the house a true mansion of the Southern States. Along the path that leads from the rear veranda to the river sits the secluded ‘Summer Cottage’ with its large fireplace, its metal roof as well as its exposed and slanted ceilings. The third house, known as ‘Oyster House’, comprises around 930 square meters and offers three master suites and five bedrooms featuring bunk beds salvaged from ships. The property also offers equestrian facilities, access to the sea from the private deep-water dock and endless tranquillity. ‘This property truly captures the spirit of Savannah’s Southern charm,’ says Engel & Völkers Americas, Savannah’s License Partner, Richard Mopper. ‘From its veranda views of the river and expansive pastures, to the properties’ multiple luxurious residences adorned with decadent features and classic Southern style, every corner of the estate exudes the warmth and hospitality that are unique to America’s South.’
