Friday, August 28, 2020 – Located six miles south of historic Camden, South Carolina, this breathtaking southern estate is situated in the heart of horse country and was developed by a member of the Boykin Family which is known for breeding the first South Carolina State hunting dog, the Boykin Spaniel, in the early 1900s. Acorn Farm encompasses 554 acres and is priced at $8,000,000.
Whether used as a full-time residence, country retreat or sportsman’s paradise, Acorn Farm is a truly beautiful escape from the hustle and bustle of life in the city.
Swift Creek runs along the property’s northern border and it also features two stocked ponds, sunflower and corn fields, food plots, dove and pheasant fields, vegetable gardens, an orchard with over 50 trees and grape vines, and a potential duck food impoundment. Hundreds of deer, doves, wild quail, and wild turkey also roam the property.
The gated entrance off Sumter Highway leads down a picturesque driveway to the main house overlooking the ponds. This grand 10,532 sq. foot home was built in 2008 and inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright architecture. It has three levels and features 5 bedrooms, 5.3 baths, Brazilian cherry hardwood floors, reclaimed antique heart-of-pine paneled walls, a grand staircase, elevator, chef’s kitchen, sunroom, den, Great Room and formal dining room with high ceilings, secondary kitchen upstairs, and a home theater and 5000 bottle wine cellar in the finished basement. The clerestory windows offer wonderful views from every room and there are numerous balconies, porches, and patio areas to enjoy the outdoors.
A charming 1,939 sq. ft. cabin-style guest house is situated a short walk from the main house and has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a full kitchen, family room, 5-stall climate-controlled dog kennel, and fenced back yard.
In addition, there is a 7,025 sq. ft. 75 x 75 barn/utility building with an office, kitchen, 2 baths, a walk-in refrigerator/game cooler, workshop, and large storage rooms. The main room has a high ceiling and roll-up doors making the space ideal for large scale entertaining. There are also several equipment sheds, a tool shed, quail house, chicken coop and pump house nearby.
“It is a privilege to be able to market such a unique and special property. It is truly an incredible display of landscape artistry. Opportunities, possibilities and wildlife are abundant.,” said Maren Brisson-Kuester, listing agent with HM Properties. “The care Mr. Boykin and his wife took in planning this amazing estate is evident in every tree planted and room laid out. Not one detail has been left out. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase some or all of this incredible property,” she continued.
This property has many potentials whether as a personal residence, private shooting/hunt club or even an equestrian estate and it will be enjoyed for generations. The main house with 107 acres can be purchased separately from the entire estate.
