Comments"Exeter Place", built in 1831 is a gorgeous plantation home. It is Greek Revival in style and would be perfect for Civil War documentaries. It has added features such as original outbuildings and an unrenovated slave cabin and 5 acres close to Lake Prince. Stepping onto the property is truly a step back in time! It is decorated in period antiques and features a handpainted large mural of the house and property featured in the formal dining room. This home has 12 ft. ceilings downstairs and 10.5 ft. ceilings upstairs. The huge wide doorways have skeleton keys; 2 of the front entrances feature stained glass.The windows downstairs feature original old wavy glass. The original plantation owner was first cousin of Sallie Corbell, who married General George Pickett. "Exeter Place" was also taken over by the Union troops and used as a calvary headquarters and hospital during the Civil War. Its historical provenance and character make this home a truly rare find in a modern world.
