Savannah’s most eligible estate on the market, Riverbend sits atop a high bluff overlooking the Wilmington River in Georgia. The 5.5-acre compound hosts a French Caribbean-style main house with over 14,500-square-feet of living space.
The home, which once belonged to chef Paula Deen, naturally has an extensive gourmet kitchen with commercial grade appliances. The kitchen connects an English pantry and aviary converted for hosting entertaining guests. The nearby library with a salt water aquarium and living room offer dramatic river views, overlooking the covered outdoor terraces. In the master suite, french doors separate a custom walk-in closet, dressing room, private terrace, and large master bath with a lounge.
Much like the interior, the main home’s outside spaces have an eating area designed for elaborate meals and hosting guests. The outdoor kitchen features three grills, four refrigerators, a smoker, and soda fountain. Additionally, the pool area has a “dive-in” theater. (There’s also a media room with movie screen, for those who prefer watching in a less wet setting.)
Elsewhere on the property, there are two guest cottages, a three-bedroom guest apartment, and 10,000-square-foot barn with an eight-car garage. Closer to the riverfront lies a stocked pond, croquet court, and dock with dock house. The home is currently listed for $10 million. Find more information through its listing here.
