Sumter, South Carolina
Southern Plantation in the Heart of South Carolina
Brookland Plantation is a true Southern treasure. Massive windswept Live Oaks drip with Spanish moss. Countless Palmettos, the state tree, adorn the 6.5 acres. In warmer months, the azaleas, camellias, magnolias and crape myrtles must put on a beautiful show of color for all the envious passersby.
The grounds surround a spectacular circa 1793 Antebellum Greek Revival residence. This brick home was built by Gen. Thomas Sumter, the famous Revolutionary War hero known as The Gamecock of the Revolution. Today, the beautifully-appointed home impeccably combines history with modern convenience and consists of a grand foyer, 2 living rooms, a breathtaking dining room, 5 BRs, 4.5 BAs and 7 fireplaces.
Original molding adorns every wall. Hand-cut original floorboards are underfoot thru-out all 3 stories. The large porches make cool fall evenings heavenly. And the kitchen! Surely it's long been the center of family gatherings but is big enough for large-scale entertaining and guests. Did I mention the 2-car garage?
The inviting swimming pool? Deeded access to a lovely pond with fishing dock? Add to that, a caretaker's cottage and a guest house. And all so close-in! The town of Sumter is 10 min. away and the State Capital of Columbia, just 30 min.
Come see a casual grandeur few can enjoy...and make Brookland Plantation your new address.
