Collina Plantation, circa 1835, is a fine example of a Greek Revival planter's style home. Before the Civil War, it was the home of America's first sociologist, Henry Hughes, who was also a Captain in the Confederacy.
Located in historic Port Gibson, Mississippi, between Vicksburg and Natchez, it is just one mile off the beautiful Natchez Trace Parkway and one hour from Jackson. Exquisitely restored to its original grandeur, Collina is a perfect blend of fine period details and contemporary comfort. Formerly run as a B&B, it is now a residence. The interior features 14' ceilings and original plaster ceiling medallions, woodwork and mantels. A spectacular entry foyer sets the tone of antebellum elegance. There are three or four bedrooms and 3 1/2 new baths, formal dining room, parlour, library and office(or 4th bedroom). All have period-appropriate chandeliers and custom drapery treatments.
A large kitchen/family room features custom-designed solid cypress cabinetry and professional Viking appliances. Collina is beautifully situated on a hill amidst 8 1/2 acres full of vintage oaks, magnolias and camellias. Also on the property are a new 24'x24' workshop and a renovated artist's studio that could easily be converted to a guest house. A huge rear gallery with ceiling fans faces a bricked courtyard with fountain.
Listed for $585,000 unfurnished. (The dining room sideboard, circa 1840, is original to the home and will be left)v
