$12.5 million dollars! I’d definitely put in a solid offer to purchase Riverbend, Paula Deen’s home on Wilmington Island near Savannah, GA.
Reports are that she has recently put her home on the market for $12.5 million.
Her Wilmington Island home has been a favorite of mine ever since she toured it with Miss Oprah. The setting, decor, and finishes all have me at “hello”.
According to Savannah Morning News:
“Deen’s publicist, Jaret Keller, confirmed Monday that Deen put her Wilmington Island home on the market Saturday. The property, which overlooks the Wilmington River, is listed with Seabolt Brokers and Christie’s International Real Estate.
“Her travel schedule has been extremely hectic with her new projects. She is rapidly expanding her restaurant business,” Keller said of Deen, whose newest restaurant, Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen, opened in Pigeon Forge, Tenn., last week.
That added to her already busy schedule of managing her digital network that launched in September and a mobile game that launched in mid-March, Keller said.
The property, named Riverbend, boasts a media room complete with a movie screen, projector and soda fountain, study aviary, pool with dive-in movie theater and a large master suite overlooking the river. The home’s main living area also served as the wedding location for Deen’s younger son, Bobby, in 2013.
And if the main home’s 14,500 square feet aren’t enough for your entertaining needs, there are also two guest cottages, a dock house and a 10,000-square-foot barn with three bed rooms and room for eight cars and two RVs all on a private 5.5 acres.
While Deen’s main filming location in Savannah has been at her former residence, dubbed, Dogwood, she has filmed segments for her digital network in her Riverbend estate, Keller said.
The professional gourmet kitchen includes a copper farm-style sink, large cabinets, commercial grade appliances and a large butler’s pantry.
If you want to take in views of the river while cooking, there’s also a large outdoor kitchen with four refrigerators, three grills, smoker, oven and ice maker.
But Deen fans shouldn’t worry, Savannah’s butter queen isn’t leaving town — although she is looking at purchasing a second home in New York City — she’s simply looking to downsize from the six-year-old French Caribbean style home, Keller said.
“... She has several entertainment projects in development that have been bringing her to New York City and Los Angeles regularly in addition to going to Minnesota for her EVINE shows. When Paula is in Savannah, she wants an easier and simpler life,” Keller said.
“She can’t wait to find, renovate and design her next home.”
Please donate to the Uptown Acorn Fund to purchase Riverbend….LOL!
