High atop the hills and surrounded by 70 acres, Tallaway’s beauty can be seen from the moment you enter its private gates and travel down its canopy oak drive.

This historic 1863 plantation-style home, built by one of the first members of the Florida Legislature, was carefully restored in 2017.

It boasts too many historic and modern features to list, including hand-milled wood floors, custom woodwork, 12-foot ceilings, a spacious floor plan, a covered porch designed for easy entertaining and a sunroom privately situated to take in the view along with gorgeous sunrises and sunsets.

A new four-car covered garage with workshop is near established blueberry bushes, pear trees, fig trees, heirloom grapevine and camellia gardens.

The property is fenced, crossed fenced and includes a three-stall horse barn, a separate hay barn and a camp house conveniently situated in between 20 acres of planted pines, pasture, dove field, deer plots, duck pond and trails.

Appeal: “The finishes that were chosen during this historic home renovation are absolutely stunning. As soon as you turn into the property and go through the wrought iron gates and down the canopy drive, you know you’re in for a treat. As much as I’m excited about the exterior curb appeal and the fact that the house looks like it was taken out of a scene from Gone with the Wind, I love the awesome surprise of finding a top-of-the-line commercial-grade kitchen and à la mode, spa-like bathrooms in this plantation home built during the Civil War. It’s truly old world and new world combined. That’s what makes this property unique, and I cannot wait for the new owner to thoroughly enjoy it.”
