When it comes to unique and truly incredible properties, this 1.59 acre estate, known as The Magnolias, in the charming town of Reevesville is simply too remarkable to pass up. With a stunning historical home (circa 1890), an additional guest house, a two-car garage with a FROG, a single car garage, a pump house, a greenhouse, and breathtaking landscaping and trees, you will instantly know you have found something extraordinary.
On the grounds, you’ll find magnolia, live oak, and pecan tress as well as Lady Banks roses and many varieties of camellias and azaleas. Across the street, a beautifully landscaped park provides exceptional views. Approaching this lovingly-maintained historic home, you’ll notice the neoclassical architectural design, the stately four-column front porch, and the freshly painted exterior.
As soon as you enter this home, you will immediately take note the tall ceilings, crown molding, heart pine floors, arched entryways, and abundant natural light. To the right of the entry, you will find the formal living room with a cozy fireplace and plenty of space to entertain. The library/music room is located just off the living room and features another beautiful fireplace. The elegant dining room has plenty of space for large gatherings, but can also serve as a great space for an intimate meal.
Just off the dining room, you’ll find a completely remodeled kitchen with stainless steel appliances, custom maple cabinetry, granite countertops, a decorative backsplash, a center island with a breakfast bar, and tons of built-in storage and cabinets. The natural light pours into the sunroom with expansive views of the yard. The main level bedroom with a fireplace and wainscoting as well as a full en-suite bath makes for a great guest suite or a main level owner’s suite.

Three additional bedrooms and a full bathroom can also be found on this level. A full staircase leads to the third level attic with plenty of storage space. Additional features of this home include a new roof in 2021, copper gutters on the front of the home, and updated interior period lighting.
The backyard is simply stunning and includes a gazebo and a brick walkway with a large wrought iron arbor. The guest house/cottage has a lovely exterior featuring a neoclassical design with square columns, large windows, flared eaves, and dentil design on the cornice of the porch and on the projecting front gable roof. The attention to detail extends to the interior of the home where you’ll find oak hardwood flooring throughout the majority of the home, pine tongue and grove walls and ceilings, freshly painted rooms, and new flooring in the kitchen, owner’s bath, and laundry room. The kitchen also has new appliances.
In 1990, a large addition was made to the rear of the home adding an owner’s suite with an en-suite bath as well as a laundry room. Two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom complete the interior of this home. Out back, you’ll find a large backyard as well as a convenient handicap accessible ramp. This property has been utilized as a rental for over 20 years, so whether you intend to use this cottage as an in-law residence, a guest house, or as a potential rental, there are lots of possibilities!
This expansive property includes a two car garage (built in 2013) with a finished office space on the second level. A separate building currently houses the washer and dryer and includes a one car garage.
