Welcome to historic Brookland Plantation, a 60+/- -acre estate located on serene Edisto Island and at the gateway to the famed ecological preserve, the ACE Basin.Prior to the Revolutionary War, Brookland reigned as a prosperous indigo plantation gradually transitioning to Sea Island Cotton until the Civil War. The 4-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom, 4,284 sq ft Greek Revival house was built circa 1803, thoughtfully restored in 2004, and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It boasts Corinthian columns, original wide plank heart of pine floors and large pane windows with remnants of original glass. The house was repainted in 2013 and most of the windows were re-milled or replaced. Generous front and back porches offer sweeping views of Shingle Creek. A basement apartment features a full kitchen, open living area, large laundry room, and multiple storage closets. For the sports and outdoor enthusiast, Brookland Plantation offers a meticulously kept 8-acre polo field with a professional irrigation system. The field can serve a multitude of uses, including easy conversion to a dove field or horse pasture. The 10-stall, two-story horse barn includes a two-bedroom apartment that features shiplap wall panels, a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, two large Ipé viewing decks and a front balcony. The property also has a drive-through utility shed with 2 equipment bays and approximately 6 acres of fenced paddocks. Among the diverse landscape are spectacular moss-draped oaks, a formal garden and a half-acre saltwater pond near the house. Shingle Creek, which leads to the South Edisto River, is accessed at two points- one tidal dock near the main house and a deep-water access dock on the property's south end. Like many of its neighboring properties, Brookland is protected by a conservation easement held by the Lowcountry Land Trust, ensuring the property's traditional uses are protected in perpetuity.
