  The Farmhouse

The farmhouse has been lovingly restored, with every detail meticulously considered. It features three beautifully decorated bedrooms, ample modern bathrooms, and an impressive chef's kitchen, and a gracious and warm parlor. Of course no Southern home would be complete without a wide porch for relaxing, socializing, and enjoy fine weather, and the farmhouse features a spacious wraparound porch with classic wicker furniture. Walk out of the house onto a beautifully paved brick patio with a graceful two tier fountain. Soft outdoor lighting creates a romantic ambiance. It is one of our favorite locations on the estate for photographs of the bride.
