|Rendering of Martha Tucker's childhood|
homeplace and her current home
"Happy Birthday Martha from Dunlap Place
at York to Pinckney Street in Beaufort"
The Queen of the Point...so called by author Pat Conroy. Martha Tucker (aka Nana) with her Granddaughter, my friend Allison. A family with deep roots but with style and spirit very much in flow with the current culture
Where the Queen holds court. After raising her children in an ancient Southern manse...the kind that fills my daydreams, she and her late husband built this home as their empty nest. Built among the live oaks and antebellum homes of Beaufort's historic Old Point neighborhood, a peninsula reaching out into the Beaufort River
Antiques, heirlooms and beautiful textiles adorn the rooms
Refined slubby linen drapes designed by her granddaughter Laura Tucker
Blooms from her garden
Beautiful views from every window
Pale green paint throughout the house echoes the marsh below
While her home has been published in the past, we were most impressed that it is featured on the latest Beaufort phone book
Our visit too short...
...until next time, NaNa
Thanks Allison...had a great time swimming around in your gene pool
