Shell Pond Plantation! Rustic Elegance Farm! From the moment you drive through the majestic stone-and-timber entrance and along the oak-lined drive to this 40.34-acre property, youâ€™ll know you have found the perfect combination of rustic charm and elegant surroundings. Stately stone steps will lead you to the wraparound porch and double French door entry of the beautiful cypress log home. With 1,728 SQ FT of living space and 3,904 SQ FT under roof, the 3-bedroom, 2-bath home features an open floor plan, soaring vaulted ceiling, and breathtaking woodwork. Morning light streams through the angled ceiling-high windows of the living room, adding to the roomâ€™s expansive atmosphere. The kitchen features granite countertops, beautiful cabinetry, and a paneled fridge that blends beautifully. In the master bedroom, you can enjoy views of the countryside and pastureland through large windows or step through the French doors to the fantastic screened back porch, which runs along the length of the house. What a perfect spot to relax and watch the gorgeous sunsets! Next, you will want to see the master bath, which boasts a granite-topped double vanity and an elegantly tiled walk-in shower with glass door. The second and third bedrooms also provide wonderful views of the property, and the guest full bath boasts a granite countertop, lovely tile work, and a glass-door walk-in shower. A convenient laundry area then leads you directly to the attached carport. The property also includes a four-stall center aisle wood barn with a paneled tack room, a large workshop/storage room and an attached lean-to for hay or equipment storage. 2 large, fenced pastures, a riding arena and shady live oaks complete the pastoral ambience of this captivating farm.
