A circular, tree-lined driveway welcomes your guests to this plantation style home that is true southern elegance. This distinctive property stands apart from the others in both appearance and diversity, timeless in a classic setting. Built in 2002, the property has made a name for itself both locally and nationally, winning multiple awards as well as being selected by Southern Living Magazine as one of the “South’s Best Wedding Venues”.

The property is presently set up to accommodate up to 175 guests with plenty of room on the northside of the building for a seamless expansion, if desired.

Currently operating as a site rental, the opportunities are endless for both indoor and outdoor weddings as well as corporate events and other social gatherings, with multiple sites available to accommodate varying needs and tastes. Brides love the main outdoor ceremony site in the formal garden that consists of a 2,200± SF brick courtyard with a large, raised colonnade equipped with outlets, recessed lighting, crystal chandelier, drapery, and an arch with greenery/ferns. This site has beautiful zoysia grass, landscaped gardens with a weeping willow and cherry trees next to a dreamy, wooded area draped with café lights.
