Queen of Southern Cuisine Paula Deen is selling her French Caribbean-style house known as “Riverbend” in Georgia. It’s a private waterfront resort with over 5 acres that includes two charming guest cottages, a dock house, and a barn.

The house has 28,000 square feet.
There are 8 bedrooms and 8 baths.

Her rep says she’s looking for an older home to fix up next.
The interior French doors and wide-planked wood floors are beautiful:
Even the mudroom is charming:
A covered porch with fireplace:
There are two guest cottages on the property:
Wish we could see inside them!

Deen’s asking $12.5 million for Riverbend (2016 update: the price has been lowered to $10 m). For more information, check the listing. I found additional photos at Talk of the House, Homeline Architecture, Front Door, and Oprah.com. (Photography by George Burns.)
