Medway Plantation, the historic 6,700-acre estate and paradise for sportsmen, has come on the market after more than 300 years in private hands. Medway offers traditional luxury, a sporting life, and access to all the cultural attractions of Charleston. The property encompasses an English country-style main houseâ€”the oldest masonry residence in the Carolinasâ€”four guest houses, three staff houses, two swimming pools, a lakefront lodge, a boat landing on the Back River, forests, formal gardens, a stable for 12 horses, and 13 lakes and impoundments. The plantation is ideal for quail, dove, and duck hunting, and the forests are full of deer and wild turkeys. Steeped in the history and traditions of the Lowcountry, it is protected by conservation easements to ensure enjoyment by future generations. This queen of Southern estates is available for sale to the most discerning of buyers.
The “Ted” I refer to in the title is media maven, Ted Turnerâ€”the largest private landowner in the US, second only to the US Bureau of Land Management.
