I could do it happily, but I'm from Texas. I'm surprised the photos aren't set up for a slideshow.

Ah, plantation chic.

R2, that’s a farm house, not a plantation house.

This area (Athens/Watkinsville) is beautiful. Very good public schools, too. Reminds me a bit of the horse country around Washington D.C.

Plenty of houses that look just like this one are called "plantation style." That's all I meant; that it was plantation style, i.e. a farmhouse with a plantation style wraparound porch.
The porch doesn't look right for the home, either.

Is that the same house?

$1.4 mil for Buttfuck GA? Even with 25 acres thrown in, it's pricey.

The verandah doesn't look right with the smaller second story. The interior is nice except for the rustic dining room table.

That is gorgeous. Why so cheap- is it haunted? Was there a murder?
It needs trees around it though; just baking in the boiling Southern sun is not good. Someone should have planted trees years ago.

That website looks like something out of 1998.

In the east (especially in the south) big trees close to a house can be very dangerous. There are lots of tornadoes that can bring those trees down onto the house

No R6, it was just an example of a similar house called a "plantation style" house.

For you "up nawth" queens, "plantation" is just another name for a farm.

R13, the front area, entry hall, stair placement, windows, door, looks identical.

Well, what I linked to at R5 are just plans/templates for a home in that style that the company in question can build. It's possible that the listing in OP was built with those plans. I can't find the year the OP house was built; I'd just assumed it was a farmhouse with a full porch added later.

I assumed the same as you r16 and like you, couldn't find the age. I suspected it was a news build and then I saw the floorplan you posted and am now convinced it is that plan or one similar.

I thought it was lovely,but I bet you the electric bills are sky high. It gets very hot in that area during the summer,stultifyingly so.

If I were building in the country in the south, I'd have to include electrical generation in the planning. It's hot and getting hotter.
When I look at real estate porn these days, I look at farms and empty lots. It's not that I have the energy to maintain a big piece of land, I'm just sick of my fellow man and want some distance.

OK, plantation/farm queens, can you tell us about the cleared vs. uncleared acreage? Does the cleared area have to be maintained pretty constantly so the wooded area around it doesn't encroach? I've driven around the Athens and the wooded areas look very dense, covered with every-growing kudzu. Do the wooded acres need to be cleared of dead brush, excess undergrowth, etc. so they don't burn a la California. I know it rains a lot more and the area isn't prone to fires, but dead vegetation anywhere is tinder. I imagine a lot of people looking at the listing haven't a clue how much maintenance it might require.

"Cleared" simply means all trees have been removed to make the land usable if need be. The only reason it would have to be maintained would be if it was used for farming purposes. Otherwise the natural growth of flora would just be allowed to stay. A bare piece of property with absolutely no wild low growth foliage or farm plantings is particularly ugly.
