Iconic Plantation House From 'Gone With The Wind' Is On The Auction Block
Frankly, my dear, you can live like Scarlett O'Hara and Ashley Wilkes. The Twelve Oaks, the columned plantation house outside Atlanta used in the 1939 movie classic Gone With The Wind, is for sale.
Target Auction & Land Company, Inc., who has set the starting bid at $1 million, manages the sale. Online bidding began on July 4 and a live auction is scheduled at the property for Thursday, July 25 at 2 p.m., Eastern Time.
Located in Covington, Georgia, the 11,000-square-foot Greek Revival mansion was built in 1836. Though it fell into disrepair after 1940, a $2 million renovation completed in 2017 upgraded the electrical systems, installed new HVAC, added baths, renovated the kitchen and more.
The lot measures more than 3 acres and includes gardens, a pool, a gazebo, a pergola and a 4-car garage inside a historic carriage house. There are Tesla and Copper Creek charging stations for cars and golf carts, which are allowed on the streets of the area.
