Opulent Forsyth Park Estate. Designed to complement the famed Forsyth fountain by acclaimed architect, G.L. Norman, for Lawrence McNeil, this Greek revival mansion was completed in 1903. Truly unparalleled, this is the only private estate facing the fountain and is delicately wrapped in porches to supply sweeping views of the park filled with dazzling live oaks dripping in Spanish moss. Corinthian columns, a vast veranda, and resplendent estate crest take you back in time and put this home in a class of its own. An elegant stairway provides entry to the home where once inside, you are immediately drawn to the hand carved ionic wooden columns, Italian marble fireplace, and elegant grand staircase. This sophisticated home with over 10k sq ft features spacious and bright formal rooms that flow seamlessly throughout offering endless possibilities. Upstairs you will find 4 generous bedrooms and 3 baths. On the grounds sits a carriage house with two tenant occupied 1 bed 1 bath units.
