Ben Affleck is selling his gorgeous southern antebellum Greek-revival Georgia plantation for $8.9 million through Engel & Volkers. It’s nicknamed “The Big House” and here’s why:

  • It’s situated on 87 acres on Hampton Island.
  • The main “Big House” is 6,000 square feet and has several stately fireplaces and 15-foot ceilings.
  • There’s also a 10,000-square-foot guest house for 20 featuring five bedrooms and three master suites.
  • The property includes a cottage.

The antebellum-style main house has four bedrooms and four-and-a-half bathrooms.

Located just 35 miles from Savannah, the historic-looking home is perfectly polished. Here’s a look inside:

The living room is elegant yet relaxed and inviting, thanks to the slipcovered sofas. The grand fireplace has a mirror hung over it that reflects the centerpiece of the room: the chandelier.

Reclaimed brick adds a historical feel to the home.

The open, airy kitchen has a relaxed feel. Large armoires and an island provide storage for pots, pans and china.

Large 25-foot columns and plenty of veranda area leads out to scenic views of the North Newport River.

A proper southern antebellum home isn’t complete without a collection of rocking chairs on the porch.

One of the bathrooms of the main house features a clawfoot tub and antique lighting.

The open floor plan guest house can sleep at least 20 guests. There are three master bedrooms and five bedrooms furnished with bunk beds.

Around the property

The boat dock on the property is next to the cottage.

The property sits on 87 acres for the ultimate private nature experience.

The lucky buyer also has a billiards room, library, horse stable and golf privileges on the island golf club.
