Ben Affleck Lists Sprawling Georgia Compound for $8.9 Million

The Oscar winner’s 87-acre estate comprises a trio of magnificent residences

Oscar winner Ben Affleck purchased this sprawling riverfront hideaway, located in the private Hampton Island Preserve outside Savannah, in 2003. Anchoring the 87-acre compound is a 6,300-square-foot Greek Revival manor designed by Historical Concepts in the late 1990s. Known as the “Big House,” the stately four-bedroom retreat takes cues from the region’s antebellum plantations, with 24-foot Doric columns framing the veranda, and elegant crown molding juxtaposed with reclaimed pine floors.

Oyster-shell pathways lead to a host of other structures, among them a rustic sporting lodge dubbed the Oyster House (which sleeps 20), a summer cottage, and staff quarters. The property also comes with a 38-foot mahogany sport-fishing boat (moored permanently on a private jetty), where adventurous visitors can also spend the night.
