120 Plantation Drive, Woodruff, SC 29388  

Enchantment and grace of a bygone era await you at the 18th century Nicholls-Crook House. Originally constructed in 1793 and now a showpiece remnant of a vibrant 1000 acre cotton plantation. Architecturally a blend a Federal and Georgian styles, the home has been beautifully restored with modern conveniences, all while keeping with periodic authenticity. Nicholls-Crook spans 2.25 acres overlooking the Three Pines Country Club Golf Course. Out on the grounds of the property, your senses will be delighted as you meander through mature, master planned gardens and lush landscaping. The objective was to create a period-appropriate landscape that could be easily maintained, and the result was a great success. Features of the design include a boxwood-parterre garden within the open-work brick wall; a more informal terrace off the kitchen that backs up to another boxwood parterre; an herb garden; a pergola in the rear; and a “secret� camellia garden down a meandering path behind a tall hedge. The low stone wall in the front between the large boxwoods that flank the circular drive is typical of up-country plantations, creating a more level planting area. Descendants of daffodils planted nearly a century ago still bloom in the spring. Towering pecan, oak, and hickory trees (including one of the largest pecan trees in the state) create a shaded, almost park-like setting. To keep everything nice and green, a 500+ foot well was dug for the new irrigation system. The garden also includes period-appropriate hand wrought gates by renowned, southern sculptor Berry Bate of Asheville, North Carolina, as well as Berry's inspired design for a hand-crafted metal sculpture designed like roots to raise and cradle the pre-historic petroglyph found on the plantation. The landscape lighting includes three “moon� lights high in the big pecan tree over the boxwood court yard and the petroglyph sculpture garden. Once inside, you'll find impeccable attention to detail. The abundant charm
