Located in Granville County North Carolina and just minutes from the quaint town of Oxford, step back in time and enjoy this remarkable North Carolina Plantation property.
Likely Built in the late 18th and early 19th century, the Oak Lawn Plantation is one of Granville County’s few former plantations that offer’s the largest and earliest surviving collection of structures in the county. This stunning plantation
setting is located adjacent to Oxford Park, and offers the peace and tranquility you are looking for and resides on the National Register of Historic Places.
The grounds are magnificent, as towering oaks line the drive coming in.
Situated on over 14 acres, the grounds are well maintained and would be an ideal wedding facility site. (SMILE) The most widely used adjective to describe the Oak Lawn Plantation by visitors remains to be breathtaking!
Outdoor gardens frame the back of the home and there are multiple outbuildings including the smokehouse, barn, pack-house, former dwelling, former kitchen and others!
