Elgin is an Antebellum-era, 300± acre plantation located 60 miles northeast of Raleigh. At the center of the property, at the end of a half-mile-long driveway, sits a beautifully restored plantation home surrounded by mature oaks, magnolias, and hundred-year-old boxwoods.
Elgin Plantation dates to 1827 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, where it is described as, “… alone, and in its regional context, one of the major structures of the late Federal period.” The elegantly proportioned, temple-form main residence and accompanying buildings recently underwent extensive renovations, adding 21st-century conveniences to carefully preserved 19th-century history and charm. Completing the owner’s compound is a three-car garage with upstairs guest suite, a circa 1790 cabin, and a six-stall barn. Surrounding the house are 120± productive acres of cropland and 100± acres of hardwoods and pine.
Taken as a whole, Elgin is the sum of many fantastic components and represents a uniquely balanced and efficient offering.
