Stunning 300-Year-Old Charleston Plantation For Sale on Johns Island
Call your mama and all your cousins—heck, call everyone you know—and have them round up their loose change, because with 15,672 square feet of living space across 52 pristine acres, Charleston’s historic Fenwick Hall Plantation isn’t exactly a single-family home anyway.
Located just 10 miles from Historic Downtown Charleston, at the end of a long avenue of moss-draped oaks, Fenwick Hall Plantation is a place where time truly stands still, and it can be yours for a cool $8,875,000.
Dating back to 1730—more than 40 years before the United States even became a country—this sprawling Johns Island estate features one of the most renowned early Georgian homes in the nation. This one-of-a-kind piece of Lowcountry history would make either an idyllic family retreat or event space.
Admittedly, the property’s 7,818-square-foot main house and its five bedrooms, four and a half baths and 13 fireplaces, are in need of a little work. According to Post & Courier, whoever buys it should budget about $1.5 million to restore the dilapidated manor to its former glory. Luckily, the estate features three additional updated residences with 16 bedrooms, 14 full and two half baths divided between them, which can more than accommodate your crew while the main house is restored.
