Beaufort County, SC – On October 1, 2021, The historic 86-acre Bonny Hall Plantation exchanged hands for $4,750,000. The c. 1897 Georgian-style main home encompasses 6,000 square feet with five bedrooms, six full bathrooms, and one-half bathroom. Two separate guest cottages, a six-stall barn, and a pecan orchard are just a few of the amenities on the extensive grounds.
Originally part of a land grant to Joseph Blake, the Combahee River property richly reflects the area's history, the influence of its private owners, and the convergence of notable designers. In the 1930s, famed Long Island landscape architect Umberto Innocenti designed the home's walled garden featuring twelve-foot gates, parterres, specimen camellias, towering live oaks, and terracotta sculptures. Most recently, Glenn Keyes, renowned Charleston-based preservation architect, was enlisted to help the previous owners update the home to modern standards in 2005.
Bonny Hall Plantation was listed by Middleton Rutledge of Daniel Ravenel Sotheby's International Realty and sold for $100,000 over asking price. The buyer was represented by Todd Crosby at Crosby Land Company. Both agents declined comment.
