Home Tour #1~Historic Homes, Plantations and Gardens

Monday, April 1, 2013

I’m not sure what it is?
The history, beauty, simplicity, grandeur, gardens, tranquility, or the hundred year old live oak trees draped in moss, but we tour these homes most every year and never tire of seeing them! 

We were in Georgetown, SC for the annual Plantation Home tour and I am so excited to share these homes with you.

These homes are in the historic part of town.

The original kitchen is in the detached structure behind the house and the original fireplace and chimney are still used today.  It is used as an outside covered den area, sometimes referred to as the husbands "man cave."

  2. Girl, with a house as lovely as yours, I can't imagine why you'd even need to blink at another house.

    These are all wonderful and I have a fondness for the old, majestic trees.

  7. What lovely old homes! Those trees are magnificent and the gardens are beautiful. You can almost picture the ladies in their hooped dresses and men in their hats being driven in their horse drawn carriages. Oh, if these charming homes could talk! Thanks for sharing these; can't wait for part 2!

  26. Cindy, thank you for sharing these amazing homes and properties. Going on a home tour is the most favorite past time for me. You certainly have some elegant places in your part of the country. Those live oaks are gorgeous. We have beautiful oak trees in our area but the moss we don't have and that is so beautiful..Happy Weekend..Judy

  27. Hello Cindy, amazing photos - I do love seeing older homes and those Live Oaks - enchanting! These homes are marvelously kept - so glad - we have a few in our little old town that are finally getting repaired - They've been around so long. I do appreciate you taking us along on this tour of these historic homes and sharing with Home and Garden Thursday,
    Kathy
