“Gone With the Wind” features one of the grandest homes in all of classic cinema, and now is your chance to own it — or at least the home that inspired the Wilkes’ southern plantation (the movie was mostly shot on specially-built set pieces). The antebellum plantation located in Covington, Georgia, about 35 miles from central Atlanta, is now on the auction block at Target Auction, with a minimum reserve price of $1 million for the historic 10,000-plus square-foot estate.
But “Gone With the Wind” isn’t the only Hollywood history found within this home’s gables. Several other television shows and movies have been filmed here, including “The Vampire Diaries.” Come take a look inside the home’s many rooms.
Update: Twelve Oaks sold at auction on July 25 for an undisclosed amount. According to Twelve Oaks’ Facebook page, the winning bid “was not quite what we wanted, but enough to allow us to move forward.” The sellers also mentioned that they think the new owner will continue the mansion’s bed and breakfast operation.
