Disappointment set in when we found the official listing with current photos. With every new owner, changes are bound to happen but it seems some of the formal rooms have lost nearly all the original allure. Gone are the murals in the formal dining room, the formal living room that once exuded warmth and class and is now devoid of colour and seemingly sterile – mind you nothing architecturally has been altered that we can see. We’ve included the original project photos from Historical Concepts below and added in a few listing photos. You decide which you prefer. Known as “The Big House”, the main house is 6,000 square feet with a veranda overlooking the river. Historically accurate details, reclaimed heart of pine floors and 15′ ceilings make this a true Southern mansion. There is also a secondary 10,000 square foot residence called “The Oyster House” with camp-style accommodation with three private bedroom suites and six primitive bunk rooms. According to Historical Concepts, “A short stroll along the river leads to the dock, where a permanently moored mahogany sports fisherman, first christened in 1928, serves as a guest room at water’s edge. Just beyond sits the Summer House, a rustic screened pavilion that hosts lively, fresh-off-the-dock shrimp boils and fish fries.” Despite changes in decor and interior design, the substantial Greek Revival mansion remains a truly spectacular offering. The property was on the market for $7.6 million with Engel & Völkers Savannah.
