Rosemary Hall is a stunning estate that sits majestically on the hills of North Augusta, South Carolina, overlooking the town center, the Savannah River and downtown Augusta, Georgia. A grand Southern mansion, Rosemary was built in 1902 as the residence for the city founder, James U. Jackson, and is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places in America.
Rosemary’s impressive exterior, with its twelve stately Corinthian columns, plantation windows and a sweeping veranda, echoes the classic Southern style of the Antebellum Era. The interior, however, reflects the fashionable Gilded Age in which the home was completed. With high paneled ceilings, elaborate wood moldings and a commanding English staircase, it romances guests back to the sophisticated age in which the home thrived. An immense formal dining room, four sizable parlors and an impressive foyer allow for entertaining in a grand style. An enormous butler’s pantry, large galley kitchen, a laundry/storeroom, bedroom and two half bathrooms complete the furnished offerings of the first floor.
Classic and graceful, the mansion’s presence surrounds you with the resplendence and glamour of the Old South. Original light fixtures, boutique stained glass and exquisite décor embellishments abound. Operating as “Rosemary Inn Bed & Breakfast,” a multi-award-winning historic accommodation, the home boasts six spacious upstairs guestroom suites replete with period antiques, private baths, lavish décor and luxurious amenities, which are included with the purchase.
Meticulously renovated, the nearly 8,000-square-foot home sits on just under two acres of beautifully landscaped lawn and gardens and includes a three-bedroom guest house and a two-bedroom cottage. Enjoy the riverfront’s developments, shopping, restaurants, river sports and miles of pedestrian trails, all within walking distance on both sides of the Savannah River. The estate is located only 4.9 miles from the Augusta National, which hosts the Master’s Golf Tournament, and lies conveniently close to many other beautiful golf courses in the greater Augusta area. Offered at $3.95 million
