    Description

    30+-acres of exquisite one of a kind waterfront property with 1000+- waterfront feet on Perch Creek along with a 2+- acre pond just off of Dog River. This beautiful gated property is a true nature lovers paradise and is truly unique in the scope of the property and in its abundance of specimens of flowers and trees. Developed by Fred Clarke, the architect of Fort Whiting, as a public garden designed to emulate Bellingrath Gardens; it was known as Clarkes Garden- the Souths Enchanting Garden. This property has only ever had 2 families live there and has been lovingly maintained. You will find over 2000 of the most exquisite camellias ever seen which are each labeled by name. There are many other plant specimens including thousands of azaleas along with 1.5 miles of developed walking trails. The property has 3 houses all with porches or decks with beautiful views over Perch Creek. A fabulous workshop with tons of floored storage would be great for woodworking, automobiles, boats or entertaining. The original greenhouse is now a covered car shelter and another structure was previously a barn is now used for equipment storage. You have the beauty of Perch Creek on one side and the large pond which is a haven for nesting birds like egrets and herons on the other side with walking trails around the pond. The main house designed by Clarke has a cottage feel with beaded board and much of the wood in the house originated from this property. The primary residence which had renovations back to the studs in 2009 per Seller is a 4.2.1 raised cottage with a spot designed for an elevator if needed and has a built-in generator. The kitchen is updated and flows onto a glorious large screened porch overlooking the water where you will want to live. The second house is a two-story 2 -bedroom house that has a great income producing history and a big deck overlooking the water. The third home is a rustic wooden cottage with a great porch overlooking the water that was built by the cu
