Historically significant Longwood Plantation located on the east branch of the Cooper River. Early settlers obtained land grants to establish homesteads and farms along the waterways since transport by water was the primary means of travel at that time. Longwood Plantation was originally named Pompion Hill Plantation and is located next to Pompion Hill Chapel which is still in use today. Longwood was a rice plantation at one time, but has more recently been utilized as a country equestrian retreat with paddocks, horse barns, polo fields, and trails. With over 5,000 feet overlooking the river, the land offers magnificent vistas and views. The large main house was built in the early 1960's and contains approximately 7,000 square feet of living space with 7 bedrooms and 6 full bathrooms. There are also two caretaker's cottages, each with 2 bedrooms and 1 full bathroom. The property has been placed in a conservation easement, but it can be subdivided into two parcels with main houses, barns, guest houses, swimming pools, and tennis courts. Also, there can be two docks constructed. The property can be used for a variety of farming uses and also commercial activities including nature-based tourism, historical tourism, equine activities, wildlife management programs, home-based business, a bed and breakfast, and reception and party facilities. The property location is within 20 minutes to Mount Pleasant, 45 minutes to downtown charleston, 20 minutes to Daniel Island, and 10 minutes to Cainhoy where 8,000+ new homes are planned.
