Built in 1836 and a $2M renovation was completed in 2017, this distinctly Southern property was chosen by author Margaret Mitchell as the model for Twelve Oaks in the 1939 movie version of Gone with the Wind (as seen in David O. Selznick's Gone with the Wind). A private home early on, it more recently served as an award-winning bed and breakfast, event venue, tourist destination, and a stunning backdrop for over 15 movies.
With over 10,000 sq. ft., this 12-bedroom, 12½-bath beauty also offers a grand dining room, formal parlor, informal dining and living spaces, and chef's dream kitchen. Other features include hardwood floors, period lighting, 11-foot ceilings, and 12 fireplaces modernized with remote controls.
"This would make a magnificent home, a lucrative business or both," said Jacobs. "Operating permits for a B&B, an event venue, and a historic tourist site are already in place, and the property receives movie and TV contracts each year. So this could be a huge opportunity for someone. Just last year, the readers of Southern Living chose The Twelve Oaks for their 2018 Best of the South awards and was one of the Top 10 Inns in the US chosen by bedandbreakfast.com."
Outdoor amenities include:
3± acres of gardens
Poolside chandelier-lit gazebo
Massive deck with a pergola
Four-car carriage house
Three blocks from Town Square
"We feel we've accomplished what we set out to do and we are ready to start a new adventure. We have other business ideas we would like to pursue and another renovation might be in our future," said owner of Twelve Oaks. "This was a dream of mine and we feel we achieved it beyond our imaginations."
