About This Old House

This magnificent merger of Georgian and Federal styles creates a unique example of an 18th century plantation house. The two-plus acre site overlooks the challenging Three Pines Golf Club, an 18-hole private golf course. The grounds are enhanced by its surrounding professionally designed formal gardens with a boxwood parterre garden within the open work brick wall; herb garden; pergola; a “secret” camellia garden; multiple pathways and it is further screened from the road by many mature pecan, oak and hickory trees. All of this greenery is nurtured by a sophisticated irrigation system fed by a five hundred plus foot well and serves, as well, to obscure views of the necessary equipment storage outbuildings. The Nicholls-Crook gardens were featured in the Spring 2012 issue of \”At Home\” magazine. This striking remnant of a 1,000 acre plantation was operated for a time as a Bed & Breakfast and Special Events venue by the current owners.

The house itself, fully restored and decorated to maintain periodic authenticity while incorporating modern mechanical bones within its fortress-like 22 inch brick walls, has three floors of varying usages as well as a basement that would make an ideal man-cave, workshop or media room and an ideal site for a wine cellar. The main floor has a library with two fireplaces, a formal living room with a fireplace and its incredible Adams-style mantel, a powder room, a tavern-style combined kitchen and dining room with an enormous fireplace and the beverage center. This floor is completed at the rear by the master suite with French doors leading to an intimate porch overlooking a courtyard that is defined by an open-work brick wall. The second floor has two comfortably-sized bedrooms that share a full bathroom and is completed by a large hall-closet that is plumbed for a second floor laundry. The third floor is an open plan office/bedroom completed by a bath with large stall shower and several attic storage areas; plentiful light and wonderful views of the grounds are provided by multiple dormer windows.
