If you ever get the chance to see Audlbrass - do it! The only plantation designed by Wright. It is now privately owned by Joel Silver (Hollywood producer) and lovingly restored by Mr. Silver. He very generously opens the plantation every two years for one...More

Auldbrass Plantation is open to the public only every other year and tickets went on sale supposedly by phone and on line today. Due to "technical difficulties", the Internet did not work all day. I began calling every few minutes from 9 to 4:15--almost 50...More

We were lucky enough to get in during a Beaufort Land Trust fundraiser. The owner, Joel Silver, has done a jaw dropping job of not just restoring this Frank Lloyd Wright classic, but in actually completing Wright’s original intent for the plantation. South Carolina is...More

Only open for tour one day per year, so advance planning a must. Faithfully restored over 25+ years. Frank Lloyd Wright did a masterful job of making this estate unique in every detail. Access through Charleston Historical Foundation. Contribution required, but well worth it.

What an incredible property! What Mr. Silver has done to restore this architectural gem is phenomenal. So glad he and his family opens it to the public on occasion, so others can admire this home. Tickets are pricey, but go to a great cause. Highly...More

It's privately owned. Joel Silver allows tours one weekend every two years to benefit the Open Land Trust that saved the place from bulldozers.
