Featured: Alabama Plantation, “Everhope” – Ca. 1852

everhope12In 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.

everhope2Current 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.

    We toured this house recently and it is fabulous! I wish we could move there. The owner is very knowledgeable about the history of the house and gave a great 1 1/2 hour tour for $6 – the best we’ve ever been on. They also had some fliers and the house was just reduced to $599, a real bargain.

    Good to know, Suzanne! I was hoping to visit, myself, since I’ll be making a trip to the Florida panhandle soon and then driving west to New Orleans. However, Eutaw is too far north, so I wouldn’t have time for the side trip.
