1860 Greek Revival

Marshall, Texas 75672

The Scott Plantation

All you have to do is step through the gate of this quintessence of beauty, elegance and charm called the Scott Home, located in the community of Scottsville, to be quickly transported to a place in the past where time passed a little slower and things were a little less hectic. Thanks to Samuel Scott, who began construction on the home in 1860 and completed it in 1864, you will be able to do just that!

This Greek Revival home has been completely renovated, the construction taking place from 2008 to 2012. The renovations were painstakingly completed keeping all the original historical essence of the home intact and at the same time installing every modern convenience with a smart and versatile floor plan. The attention to history and detail is quite evident throughout this property.

The first floor original dog trot is now the main central hallway. The hallway contains the original cistern just inside the back entrance which has been converted into a wine cellar boasting cypress wine racks capable of holding up to 500 bottles of wine.

You will find an oversized gourmet/country kitchen with the original wood beamed ceiling and Long Leaf Pine counter tops. An oversized antique storage bin serves as an island with plenty of drawer and counter space. An antique replica gas stove along with an electric oven and plenty of counter top and cabinet space make it possible to cook up an old fashioned meal just like Grandma used to make.

When it's time to relax after that big meal, you can retire to the parlor for after dinner drinks and conversation. The large family room across the hall has plenty of room for kicking back in front of the fireplace and watching your favorite movie or nestling in at one of the three computer desk spots for gaming or surfing the internet. If you have some unfinished business, you can settle in at your wood lined and trimmed office with plenty of built-ins to get things wrapped up for the day.

The formal dining room, just off the kitchen, has a root cellar under the floor which could double as a tornado shelter. The dining room and office both open up to the front porch for relaxing.

The second floor contains all the bedrooms with a hallway that opens up to the front balcony. The master suite has two sitting rooms, two accesses to the balcony, separate closets and his and her antique vanities with a water closet. The closets for the other bedrooms have hidden upper play areas with access via a built in ladder.

The third floor has a full bath, tons of attic storage and is a rec room haven. This property also has a carriage house that could be used as a mother-in-law house, a rental property or just extra space for guests. This 3 story space is fully equipped with a kitchen, living room, bathroom and what could be 3 bedrooms. The third floor is a completely finished out attic that can be used as a bedroom or a rec room.

Some highlights of the main house are:
  • A secret passage way where the original servant staircase used to be, situated between the office/study and the parlor and concealed behind bookcases, can be used as a hidden safe room.
  • Most of the bricks used in the home are bricks that were hand made and carefully used for flooring or backsplashes during the renovation.
  • The wood floors and the stair cases along with newel posts are all reclaimed Long Leaf Pine and Curly Pine, both of which are almost extinct.

The property has several outbuildings for storage, workshops or tack rooms. There is a barn with stables, chicken coops and several fenced off pastures. There is a large fenced area with several large raised beds equipped with irrigation for gardening. This lovely, historic property would be wonderful as a single family home, a wedding/event venue or rental.

Convenient and quick access to Hwy 80 or Interstate 20. 35 minutes to Shreveport, LA, 38 minutes to Longview, Tx, 2.5 hours to Dallas, Tx. The property is approx. 2 miles from the historic Scottsville Cemetery and 20 min from Caddo Lake.

The historic pre-civil war town of Jefferson Texas is only about 15 minutes away. The mysterious, unique jewel of Caddo Lake is only about 15 minutes away. Click on the links below to check out these wonderful nearby places.
