Thomasville's Historic Chinquapin Plantation Just Listed for $10.9 Million
Imagine for a second that the Palace of Versailles had a distant cousin in the South—one with a bit more modesty and an affection for the outdoors. That’s basically what you’ll get at Chinquapin Plantation.
Recently listed with Jon Kohler & Associates for $10,900,000, this sprawling 1,318-acre plantation just outside the charming Southwest Georgia town of Thomasville is equal parts rustic and glam. Highlights include the 18,000-square-foot, seven-bedroom main house built in 1910 by Standard Oil heir John F. Archbold, exceptional wildlife, and more than five miles of Ochlocknee River frontage in the South’s storied Red Hills Region.
Archbold is said to have built the house as a winter retreat where he could focus on writing, painting, and entertaining. Today, it can go toe-to-toe with some of the country’s finest properties.
