326 +/- Acre Fully Restored River Front Estate In Very Close Proximity to Downtown Charleston & Mount Pleasant. Circa 1690.

You’re welcomed into the property down a magnificent avenue of oaks that transport you back in time and leads into the heart of the property which now consists of 326 +/- acres. There is zero deferred maintenance at Middleburg; the improvements and grounds are meticulously maintained. Early American history oozes from every corner of this property and Middleburg was one the very first rice plantations in the colonies.

The main house is a grand Georgian style construction and was built in 1697 by Benjamin Simons. It is likely the oldest frame house in South Carolina and among the oldest still standing in the United States. This 17th century gem was masterfully restored by the current owner breathing new life into Middleburg. The main house features 4 large bedrooms and 3 ½ baths, a galley kitchen, large living space and classic dining room. Gorgeous original heart pine floors, original moldings and hardware are found throughout. Commanding views of the reflection pond, ancient live oaks and the East Branch of the Cooper River are found from the back porch and large elevated firepit.

Middleburg is a fantastic landscape for entertaining and like the main house, the remaining historic improvements have all undergone a complete restoration. There is ample room for all of your family and friends. Additional structures include three historic buildings that have been converted in the guest cottages, and a large pole barn for storing all of your equipment and gear.

The wildlife habitat at Middleburg is excellent. There is a fantastic location for a large dove field, excellent waterfowl potential and large pine woods for quail courses. Foot plots, elevated blinds and baiting sites are prime for deer and turkey hunting.

Middleburg is located on the East Branch of the cooper river on Cainhoy Road in what is commonly referred to as the Cooper River Historic District. Many properties along this river, including Middleburg, are protected with conservation easements forming a unique and highly valuable neighborhood of like-minded landowners.

From the main entrance, you’re just 20 minutes from Mount Pleasant and 30 minutes from downtown Charleston. Both are also accessible by boat. Neighboring properties include Longwood, Halidon Hill, Cedar Hill, Quimby and many others. Across the east branch from Middleburg is the protected and state-owned property Bonneau Ferry which ensures the integrity of the views at Middleburg for generations to come.
