This wonderfully preserved and stunningly beautiful plantation Mulberry has just hit the market, priced at $17,5 million.The main house, which has been referred to as Mulberry Castle was built by Thomas Broughton who became the royal governor of South Carolina in 1735. The house was old by the time of The America Revolution. Constructed in 1714 on the highest point in the area the house is the third oldest in South Carolina. It is on the National Register and is a National Historic Landmark. The house recently celebrated its three hundred year anniversary.
The present owners purchased Mulberry in 1988 from the Historic Charleston Foundation in order to restore and preseve it. They added the portion known as South Mulberry shortly afterwards. The buildings and grounds were extensively restored in every detail. They built a guest house designed by acclaimed New York architect Jaquelin Robertson.
There are manicured gardens, foot paths, winding trails, lakes and ponds with spectacular views. The drive to the main house is two miles long and passes through beautiful woods and giant live oaks.
Mulberry’s expert staff manages the plantation for hunting, fishing, relaxing and entertaining. There is plenty to see and do on seventeen hundred and five acres with over two miles of waterfront. There are two duck ponds, three bass fishing ponds, multiple dove fields, turkey and deer, and great fishing in the Cooper River.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a historic property near Charleston that is great for all ages who love the outdoors and the beauty of the low country.
