Thomasville's Historic Chinquapin Plantation Just Listed for $10.9 Million
Chinquapin Plantation, Thomasville, Georgia
This historically significant, Mediterranean-style home was built in 1910 by Standard Oil Company heir, John F. "Jack" Archbold, and designed by famous architect A.S. Bell of New York.
The home’s formal entrance features marble flooring and a dramatic, curved staircase.
Formal Sitting Room
Bay windows and gilded wallpaper create a light-filled space for entertaining.
Spacious Dining Room
Current owners Bob and Karen Dean recently remodeled the home to include this spectacularly large dining room.
A neutral color scheme and state-of-the-art appliances mean the new owners won’t have to change a thing.
Open Floor Plan
The kitchen opens up into the cozy living room—an ideal layout for day-to-day life and casual entertaining.
Rich wood paneling, exposed beams, stone fireplaces and a handful of taxidermy trophies make for the ultimate country retreat.
Sure, stuffed Grizzly bears aren’t for everyone, but they certainly add a rustic touch!
What kind of billiard room would be complete without a pool table?
The master bedroom is so big it has space for its own designated sitting area, which comes complete with its own fireplace.
A master bathroom with its own wooden sauna? Yes, please!
The plantation has several ponds and a unique mix of giant old live oaks draped in moss and tropical palm trees.
The solar-heated saline pool and its adjacent pool house (complete with sauna) are poised for al fresco fetes.
The two-bedroom guest house is styled like a Swiss Chalet.
One of the property’s six ponds features a gazebo and boardwalk.
Chinquapin’s name is derived from the American chinkapin, a species of chestnut native to the United States, and more specifically Georgia.
