About Neal Petersen
I am a published award winning author having won the National Outdoor Book Award for "Journey of a Hope Merchant" which I wrote at this home. Darlene and I travel globally, living part of the year in the mountains of the Dominican Republic and part time on our yacht. As a professional adventurer, I did two solo races around the globe plus many other trans-ocean events. Much of my time is spent flying around the globe opening or closing conferences as a keynote speaker. PBS featured me in a national documentary, "No Barriers, the Neal Petersen Story"
Neal Petersen purchased this house in 2000
Why Neal Petersen chose McClellanville
This was the first home Darlene and I bought six months after we got married. We both have roamed the world before meeting and wanted a place to call home and build a garden. I wanted a forest with a pond and oak trees. Darlene wanted a French country kitchen to prepare foods from our travels. We both got what we wanted. But then the adventure bug called us again and we headed south to the Caribbean. In the mountain of Jarabacoa in the Dominican Republic we have built another home which is also available for rent. Here we have extensive gardens, decks, views, waterfalls. Less time is now spent in the US, but I still return a few times a year to play in my original garden.
What makes this house unique
When we drove up the driveway in the spring of 2000, we knew we had found our home even before entering the structure. The oak trees and pond called out to me. I saw where I would put the big decks and fire pit, how I would build the wood fired pizza oven and where on the porch I would place the double swing, or just how we would sit on the screened in porch listening to the raindrops on the tin roofs as we dined around the huge outdoor dining table. This is what we have created and now share with you when you visit.
