The Oak Grove farm, located in Oxford, Mississippi and built in 1838, is one of the oldest plantation houses in Lafayette County. It offers an enormous property and a country home absolutely full of historical charm.
Set on 174 acres of mature forest and fields, Oak Grove is an expansive house with six bedrooms, three bathrooms, and even a balcony which overlooks the 10 acre lake just beyond the farmhouse. If you love the tranquility of rural country life, then this farmhouse is for you!
Oak Grove's formal dining room features warm hardwood floors and an old fireplace that showcases the home's historic past. High ceilings and tall windows make this a large space perfect for entertaining and making memories.
Another fireplace can be found in this farmhouse's spacious living room. The room's many windows allow for ample light, while the wood accents throughout are a tasteful nod to the home's rural setting. And who could beat that view?
In 2005, Oak Grove was updated and restored to accommodate modern comforts and luxuries. One such update was this entirely refinished chef's kitchen, featuring soapstone counters and expansive cabinetry. The kitchen island also provides a small space for eating in this kitchen, making it a great spot for breakfast or midnight snacks by the fire.
One of the features that makes this home one-of-a-kind is the exposed brick wall that can be seen in this bedroom. Simple decorating, such as an antique woven rug and crisp white linens, allows this special design element to shine.
The second floor wraparound balcony provides a great view of the spring-fed lake that lies just beyond the farmhouse. Can you imagine the sunrises from here?
Additional lakeside seating comes in the form of classic Adirondack chairs and a picnic table, making this the ideal spot for family picnics and cookouts! One warning though: your friends and family may never want to leave.
