I wanted to include some information about a new listing in Manning, SC, since it can be difficult to find historic homes like this one with so much acreage.
Classic Antebellum Plantation Home in the Greek Revival
Style majestically set on 89 acres. Home built for Edward Bertrand Davis and is known as The Davis House on The National Register of Historic Properties. This home is constructed entirely of heart pine and cypress with two circular stairways made of mahogany. The original window panes and shutters grace the mansion. Northern soldiers occupied this home during the War Between the States, and it was one of the few spared from flames.
Outstanding features include Great Entrance Hall with dual mahogany staircase, formal living room and gentlemen’s salon on the first floor. The great hall leads to the formal dining room, family room, eat-in kitchen and Master Suite. Five fireplaces enhance the rooms of the lower floors. Complete with back hallway and tucked away in the half bath behind the kitchen you’ll find a modern laundry room. 
Ascend the staircase to the second floor to find a center hall library which opens to portico. Step out and you’ll be in a fairy land of live oaks and Spanish moss overlooking manicured grounds and fenced pasture. Two oversized bedrooms and half bath complete the upstairs.
In ground pool, cabana or play house, guest cottage, barn and kennels with caretaker living quarters included in this sale. 60% of the property is wooded for your hunting pleasure, 20 acre pasture ready for planting for dove hunts. Home being sold fully furnished except for a few personal items.
