Tomotley Plantation

Tomotley Plantation (Jon Kohler & Associates)

A 1,000-acre South Carolina Lowcountry plantation is on the market for $10.495 million.

The Tomotley Plantation near Yemasee, 60 miles southwest of Charleston, dates back to a 1698 king’s grant. Sherman’s troops burned the original house in 1865.

The 5,586-square-foot home built in 1910 features five bedrooms, 5.5 baths and views of a 14-acre lake. The house includes a large foyer and expansive rooms, and a moss-dripping allee of oaks planted in 1820 welcomes visitors. Because of the property’s expansiveness, hunting and fishing opportunities abound.

The property, off Interstate 95 and U.S. Highway 17 west of Gardens Corner in Beaufort County, includes a 2,800-square-foot hunting lodge with five bedrooms and three bathrooms. Nearly 250 acres are controlled impoundments for waterfowl hunting. Another 125 acres are still used for rice production.

The site, which includes a manager’s house, hunting lodge, barns and stables that survived the Civil War, is on the market for the first time since 1990, when it was restored and modernized. Florida-based Jon Kohler & Associates Real Estate Advisors has the listing.
