In Eutaw, Alabama, a magnificent & restored Greek Revival plantation home (circa 1852) is now for sale.
The antebellum estate — called “Everhope” — was long known as “Twin Oaks” until the actual twin oaks suffered their demise due to unlucky acts of nature. The property is also known as the Captain Nathan Carpenter House and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. As Patrick Rupinski writes, “For$6 you can get a guided tour of Everhope . . . For $695,000, you can own it.”
At one time, this mansion was the centerpiece of a 500 acre cotton plantation (it now includes about 8 acres). After Nathan Carpenter — an officer in the Mexican War & Civil War — the property remained in the Carpenter family through descendants all the way until 1974. It then sat empty until the mid-1990s, when it was finally sold out of the family and restored.
Current owners David & Pam Harmon bought the property just 6 years ago and moved here from Atlanta, but they simply “like to move every few years.” So far, the property has drawn potential buyers to come looking from all over — including Kentucky, South Carolina, and Indiana — but the property is still available. The stats? 6550 sqft, 5 BRs, 4 BAs, and situated on 8 beautifully landscaped acres, featuring outbuildings & more.
