The John Watson House, circa 1859, was respectfully restored in an award-winning fashion to its original splendor in 2003. The estate includes 13 acres on a knoll immediately outside of the historic town of Warrenton, North Carolina and is surrounded by rolling farm land with no occupied dwelling for a mile in any direction. It’s 7000 sq. ft. manor house includes 7 bedrooms and 7 ½ baths. The property also includes a mature pecan orchard, an old barn up-fitted with an inconspicuous full commercial kitchen, a carriage house pavilion, free standing rest room facility and several other smaller 1800’s structures.

It is currently operated as a wedding venue under the name of Magnolia Manor Plantation Bed and Breakfast. The estate can be best viewed on our website that contains many images and videos. While the wedding business generates annual sales in excess of $300k, the property is priced for its residential value only at $985,000 without consideration for its proven business potential. Turn-key options available.

The historic John Watson House is under protective covenants held by Preservation North Carolina. Please contact Dawn Williams at or 919-832-3652 x221 to request a copy of these covenants.
