Description

Every morning I take a long walk with my dogs on the roads and trails that runthrough the property and each day, I am overwhelmed by the incredible beautyand tranquility of this place. It is a testament to my parents who dedicated somuch time and effort into making Shadowcreek such a special place.I have always thought of Shadowcreek as something of a cross between ahomestead and a wildlife preserve. We have such an abundance of wildlifeliterally right outside our doorway. I frequently see deer or wild turkey onmy walks, as well as the occasional fox, bobcat, or raccoon. Our pond isfrequented by herons, egrets, wood ducks and countless migratory songbirdsare always present.Shadowcreek is more than a place. Is a lifestyle. There are so many ways toenjoy it. The trails can be paradise for both solitude seeking nature lovers and4-wheeler enthusiasts. The views change with every season and never get old.The home was designed with entertaining in mind. We’ve had events with overa hundred guests and the house never felt crowded.Shadowcreek is the estate of a former US congressman and his wife. It is nowthe residence of their son and his wife.The main home at Shadowcreek was built in 1950 and is extremely well built, theexterior walls are 18 inches of solid brick. Almost all of the interior walls are plaster.All of the beautiful woodwork in the house was done by craftsmen on theproperty as it was being built, including a circular mahogany stairway built byan old world artisan, a renowned cabinetmaker from Vienna.• In all, there are over 300 hundred acres, including over 30 acres oflandscaped lawns and gardens.• There are over 8,000 azaleas and hundreds of camellias (250 varieties)and sasanquas.• There are miles of nature trails that wind around and through the property.• There is a stocked 3 acre pond.• The Natalbany river winds through the back part of the property.• There is a 2,400 sq ft pool house that was built in 1960.• There are 8 outbuildings for storing materials and equipment.• Conveniently located less than 2 1/2 miles from both I-55 and I-10.• An 840 square foot cypress paneled family room was added to the mainhouse in 1993.
