With views this incomparable, no less a home than this Grady Woods creation would have been acceptable. This is The Ford Plantation at its epitome: an elegant and expansive Low Country estate on more than three acres along the pristine Lake Clara providing unimpeded views from every room out over the lake and the Ogeechee River to the antebellum rice fields beyond.
Master-planned first and foremost to capitalize on this awe-inspiring coalescence of lake and landscape, river and rice marsh, the home is open and airy, awash in brilliant coastal sunshine. It is spacious and welcoming to virtually any number of guests, yet with broken sight lines for privacy and intimacy.
No wish has gone unaddressed nor whim unfulfilled in design and detail. From the gates at Dublin Drive, wind your way to the main house through inviting scenes that underline the essence of lush plantation life: live oaks and Savannah hollies stand guard over stone and brick walkways; screened and open porches are bracketed by stately columns; a covered breezeway leads to a charming carriage house.
Entry to the home reveals the great room with its 25-foot barrel vaulted ceiling, cherry wood floor and French doors providing floor-to-ceiling light and views. The home is as functional as it is fantastic – a chef’s kitchen, with a 9-ft. island that persistently plays host to gathering friends; the Cypress Room with its entertainment center boasting a 61-inch HDTV; the magnificent master on the main and lavish master bath with a private outdoor spa that delivers its own unique views: the pair of soaring eagles that perch in the nearby live oak, the family playful otters making their seasonal visit to the bordering river inlet.
A premier home of The Ford Plantation, 1354 Dublin Drive reflects the character of its community – elegant, stately and comfortable, the ultimate in living in this ultimate sporting paradise.
