Property Description

Lewis Reeve Sams, one of South Carolina's most successful cotton planters, built this imposing mansion as his summer residence in 1852. Featured in the film, ''Prince of Tides'', this home represents one of Beaufort's finest examples of Antebellum architecture. Grand in scale with elaborate mill-work, eight fireplaces, and original heart pine floors, this home offers five bedrooms, each with a bath, a primary gourmet kitchen, a secondary catering kitchen and an elevator. Graceful double-tiered verandas span the 3-story residence containing 7,187 square feet. In addition, the property offers a small outbuilding, ample off street parking and beautiful landscaped grounds. The history of this beautiful home is very interesting! We have included in the documents for your reading pleasure.
