412 East Street
A rare opportunity to own one of the most beautiful properties in Beaufort's Old Point neighborhood. The Henry Farmer House was built in 1810 by Henry Tudor Farmer and was used as a Federal hospital during the Civil War. Though of no direct descent, the house ownership is unique in that it has continuously been occupied by South Carolina families connected as relatives or family friendship. Milton and Frances Parker have been the owners since the early 1970's. Frances Parker was a professional horticulturist and an internationally respected garden designer. She embraced the generations of ownership and created a legendary garden at 412 East St.The home is of Palladio inspired architecture. The two story frame has a hipped roof with dental moldings at the roof line.
