Welcome home to The Magnolia! Don’t miss this opportunity to own one of the finest Southern Plantation style homes in North Carolina.
(RECENTLY OFF MARKET-CALL FOR DETAILS)The Magnolia sits on 174 acres of prime Johnston County land and has one of the most beautiful countryside settings in the state. The history of the home goes back to 1875 and although mostly rebuilt, fireplaces and mantels and other original fabric still exist. The setting is indescribable. You are greeted with a large and private gated entrance directly from Cornwallis Road and the enticing aroma of the towering magnolias that frame the front of the home lend thoughts of the days of old, and how it must have been at this special location in God’s country. The South… just imagine waking or riding horses here each day with amazing sunrises and sunsets, long views of the open fields, towering timber, and kids fishing in the large lake. The grounds and amenities are immaculate and well maintained, and the level of landscaping that surrounds the pool, barn, and fencing really make the setting stand out.
There is a nice gazebo by the private lake, and wildlife abounds here with wild geese, turkey and deer. The 174 acres offers everything for this perfect Southern Plantation setting. The fencing carves perfect lines in field areas for all of the animals, and the barn with multiple stalls and the separate garage/shop area have all the space for the horses and recreational vehicles. Tall timber stands border the open pasture areas and have significant timber value. There are two nice rental homes on the property as well that bring in monthly income.
Room for guests? We think so! On top of the spacious 6 bedrooms and 6 full/ 2 half baths in the main home, there is a private guest house or in-law suite with perfect views of the pool and grounds. There is also a pool house with kitchen and full bath.
The owners spared no expense in the design and construction of the home and the attention to detail is magnificent. The views of the large columns and upper front porch add to the story book setting and would be perfect for wedding events.
The interiors of this Plantation Home are breathtaking and view the photo tour below. The entry features marble floors and towering views of the magnificently designed open air ceiling. Custom stairwell, the finest of crown molding and too many extras to mention. Contact us today for specifics and a showing! The Plantation home is also being offered on 5.31 acres for $2,250,000.
