The Longaberger estate, Eschman Meadows FOR SALE

Tami Longaberger, chair of the board and CEO of The Longaberger Company, America’s premier maker of handcrafted baskets, has placed her amazing 200-acre country estate outside of Columbus, Ohio, Eschman Meadows, on the market with Howard Hanna Real Estate Services.

Built over the course of four years, 1998-2001, the 57,000 square foot custom designed brick home is set very privately on 200-acres of rolling countryside. The luxurious home features Georgian architecture and consists of three wings. It is designed to be ideal for family and company entertaining. The three wings include the main residence, the guest wing and the ballroom wing which graciously accepts 300 guests in elegant style. The wings are connected via an orangery and a family room with each wing secured for privacy from the estate’s main living area.

In total, there are seven bedrooms, ten full-baths, three half-baths, seven indoor and two outdoor fireplaces. The property also has a diesel-run generator house, a six-car garage and radiant heat with all heated floors including the outdoor terraces. Tremendous formal gardens, fountains and a control-flow waterfall transform the back outdoor area into an oasis. Each floor of the home is poured concrete for ultimate soundproofing, and a computerized system controls all mechanicals and communication.

Featuring a six-stall horse barn, three pastures and three stocked ponds, Eschman Meadows is a wildlife sanctuary. The grand entrance frames a pastoral landscape of natural prairies and wetlands, transected by a stately driveway that builds your anticipation for the grand home at its terminus. And to not disturb this natural look, the property’s helicopter pad and additional parking lot are both covered in sod.

Ms. Longaberger owns much of the land surrounding the 200-acres of Eschman Meadows and has first right of refusal if neighbors ever wish to sell, possibly giving access to an additional 100 to 150 acres.

Last but not least, I am sure you are curious about the price. The Longaberger estate, Eschman Meadows, is offered for sale at $15,000,000.
