A Home True to the Spirit of the South

Courtesy Main Street Properties

There are few properties more laudable than the Tildon Estate with its 73 acres, a main house fit for a royal family and an abundance of options for guests. This estate is a sight to behold, with a stunning 7,000-square-foot home cloaked by historic oaks and fronting a massive spring-fed pond. 

“The gently sloping hills give way to the main home, which boasts a commanding view over the private pond,” said Realtor Sam Parker. “The property can be totally self-sufficient, but you will be only minutes away from city amenities.”

The main home is a traditional Southern estate with circular drive and stately pillars. The grand entrance leads into a remarkable foyer that flows into the kitchen and sitting areas. The home boasts four bedrooms, four bathrooms, two half-baths and two kitchens. The 1,100-square-foot master suite is a jewel in its own right, lending itself to luxurious relaxation and featuring six walk-in closets. The master bath contains custom cabinetry and his-and-her water closets. 

In case one home is not enough, a second home is perched atop a hill overlooking the property. In keeping with Southern traditions, the home features a wraparound porch and dormer windows. The open floor plan includes five bedrooms, three bathrooms and custom decks. 

The consummate host will thrive on this property with an entertainment complex presenting temperature-controlled screened enclosures, outdoor kitchen, gas fireplaces and a 2,400-square-foot barn. Enjoy a dip in the saltwater pool year-round with temperature-controlled settings. 

The five-acre pond glistens invitingly for those who fancy fishing, and the abundant wildlife roaming the property tempt the avid outdoorsman. The barn is stocked with equipment essential in maintaining the beautiful grounds. 

“You would never have to be a tourist again. You could own an exquisite luxury estate in the Florida Panhandle,” Parker said.
