Surrounded by large, majestic trees, this grandiose house is reminiscent of the elegant antebellum homes of the Old South. The elevated ceilings of the wraparound porch give the home an open vibe, while the two dormers on the roof make the home appear as if it is looking out over the property. This elegance and charm are two things that make this home stand out among its neighbors.
