A sneak Peek at Ben Affleck’s Georgia Property That’s Down from $8.9 million to $7.6 million after More Than a Year on the Market
Ben Affleck’s property in Georgia is still on sale but the actor is giving us a 15-percent deduction — from $8.9 million to $7.6 million. The estate, which nestles on an 87-acre lot that is just a stone’s throw away from the North Newport River, has been on the market since early 2018 through Engel & Volkers.
The Justice League actor’s compound is situated in the Hampton Island Preserve, which is a 4,000-acre exclusive community complete with a golf course, an equestrian place, and other outdoor recreational activities.
This gorgeous Georgia estate is made up of three structures – a southern 18th-century inspired Greek-revival home dubbed the Big House; a rustic camp-like home (complete with bunk beds) named the Oyster House, and the cozy bungalow aptly called the Summer House.
Each structure, with varying themes and styles, may seem to take you in a different place and time, but you won’t believe that it is just in a single compound and is joined together by an oyster shell path.
The Big House
With its southern antebellum charm and Doric columns, the Big House is the stunner among the three if you are looking for a historical touch of your place. The façade itself is a showstopper with its grand outdoor staircase that leads you to the front door and its almost-perfect symmetry adorned with tall sash windows and a less squatted attic.
From the front door, you will be greeted by the grand foyer that is in all white and as well as a noticeable chandelier. This level is also where the master bedroom and the one-and-a-half suite, which also has a clawfoot bathtub, are situated on this 6,000-square-foot home.
The interior of the house is consistent with the exterior that boasts recessed angular interior columns, intricately designed thick ceiling panels, and dark-washed floors made from heart pine. While some rooms are accented with white, some nooks, like the study, kitchen and the family room have all wood walls, with the latter even having reclaimed woods for the ceiling and walls.
The rest of the three bedrooms and three other baths are on the first level along with the living room, which is also in all-white, that connects with the kitchen, the dining room, and the study.
The Oyster House
The biggest among the three, which stretches out at 10,000 square feet, the Oyster House gives you a summer campy feeling with its rustic yet cozy attitude. The structure, which wrapped with a terrace and a porch downstairs originally has five rooms but now hosts three en suite master bedrooms and six more rooms with reclaimed bunk beds from a ship.
In contrast with the Big House, the Oyster House’s interior relies on wood – exposed wooden beams for the ceilings and walls, warm wood flooring, and wooden furnishings. The steel staircase and balustrade around the atrium balanced the warmth of the wood.
With its wrap-around terrace and windows surrounding the area, you can have a fascinating view of the nearby river and greenery of the property.
The Summer House
As the name suggests, with the hot summers in Georgia, this one-story home is a perfect place for Ben’s summer party with family and friends with its dock, full kitchen, and indoor and outdoor fireplaces. The interiors are also summer-friendly with screens in both the living and dining room.
Arched hallways abound the house with exposed ceilings and patches of exposed brick accenting the walls. Unlike the two former homes, the Summer House has stone floors which are also better for the summer since these can keep the house cool.
