The sale of a multi-million-dollar log home on over 100 rolling acres in western Oconee County set a new transaction record for Joan Herlong and Associates Southeby’s International Realty, which has been selling real estate in the Upstate since 2011.
The 127-acre property with barns, cabins and a private lake had been listed for $4.998 million, according to the Western Upstate MLS. Herlong and Associates agent Amy Hammond, an Anderson native and real estate professional since 1996, represented both the seller and the buyer of the home at 150 Stokes Place in Long Creek. The total volume of the transaction exceeded $10 million, according to Herlong and Associates.
The “River Oaks Estate,” located 15 miles from Westminster, features a main home constructed of 75-foot timbers, some as wide as 40 inches in diameter, that were preserved for nearly a century at the bottom of Lake Burton in the Georgia mountains. The vaulted ceiling in the living room rises 25 feet, and features a 12-foot-wide stacked stone fireplace, according to information in the listing.
All windows and doors throughout are made of South Carolina heart pine. Nearly 80 percent of the property’s land is heavily wooded with oaks, poplars, maples, pines and dogwoods, while some of the land is set aside as cow pasture. Mountain streams run through several parts of the property. Two additional log cabins on the property date from the 1840s, when the area was originally settled.
