Inside Paula's Elegant Estate
Despite her tremendous success as a restaurateur, cookbook author and
television host, Paula Deen has stayed true to her Southern roots. The
Food Network star grew up in Albany, Ga., and later moved to Savannah,
where she opened her first restaurant in 1996. Two years ago, Paula and
her husband built a new home for themselves on Wilmington Island, an
affluent area just outside of Savannah. The French Caribbean-style house
sits on a four-acre riverfront property, complete with a dockhouse and
two guest cottages. "I still can't believe I live here," Paula says.
"God has really gifted me, and I'm willing to work hard for what I get."
