Acorn Farm is situated in the heart of horse country, 6 miles south of historic Camden, South Carolina. The 554-acre estate 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 is priced at $8,000,000.
A gated entrance off Sumter Highway leads down a picturesque driveway to the main house overlooking the ponds. A grand 10,532-square-foot home inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright architecture was built in 2008. It has three levels and features five bedrooms, eight 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 5,000-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 1,939-square-foot cabin-style guest house is situated a short walk from the main house and has three bedrooms, two baths, a full kitchen, family room, five-stall climate-controlled dog kennel and fenced back yard.
Swift Creek runs along the property’s northern border and features two stocked ponds, sunflower and corn fields, food plots, dove and pheasant fields, vegetable gardens, an orchard with more than 50 trees and grapevines, and a potential duck food impoundment. Hundreds of deer, doves, wild quail and wild turkey also roam the property.
In addition, there is a 7,025 square-foot 75 x 75 barn/utility building with an office, kitchen, two 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.”
The main house with 107 acres can be purchased separately from the entire estate. For more information, visit acornfarmsc.com.
