About This 1873 Mansion For Sale In Macon Georgia

Established in 1873, The Great Hill Plantation offers 329+/- acres of rolling lawns, dense woodlands, shaded groves, formal gardens and a picturesque lake. The recently built Georgian Style Plantation home impresses with two facades, each equally grand. Classical elements include fluted Corinthian columns, exterior dentil molding, a grand entablature, sweeping limestone balustrades and a cupola-topped copper rotunda. Dual brick staircases cascade down from the curved covered entry where Palladian windows flood the interior with light.

Delightful symmetry and balanced proportions create an esthetically pleasing exterior, which gives way to the enchanting interior. The round entry foyer impresses with an incredible rotunda showcasing an upper gallery with paired columns supporting clerestory windows topped with a domed ceiling. Playful Rubenesque putti adorned the domed ceiling and create an old-world European ambiance. Extensive molding and millwork exhibit incredible old world craftsmanship rarely seen in modern homes.

Hardwood, heart pine, and mahogany inlay floors aid in grounding the main level, while dual staircases gently ascend to the upper level, drawing the eye upward. Built for grand entertaining, the living spaces in this palatial estate boast soaring ceilings with fine millwork adorning high elevations. Stately windows, rich hardwood floors and elegant chandeliers create opulence and a sense of grandeur. Top-of-the-line fixtures and finishes are found throughout, as are extensive hand-painted murals.

The two-story dining room showcases the French trompe l’oeil technique of painting meant to “fooling the eye.” Two crystal chandeliers descend from the ceiling and cast soft light onto the table below. Outfitted with high-end appliances, the gourmet kitchen boasts an island, a copper breakfast bar with seating and sight-line views into the two-story dry stacked stone chimney in family room with heart pine coffered ceiling.

A handsome library with unbelievable mahogany woodwork is clad in judge’s paneling from top to bottom. A gently curved wooden staircase spirals to the second level where a coffered ceiling and numerous gallery catwalks trace the upper floor creating elegant reading nooks. Relax and unwind in the luxurious master suite, which includes a fireplace, sitting area, French doors to a private balcony and an opulent bathroom with his and hers vanities, a sunken jacuzzi tub overlooking gardens below, a spacious shower, a Baroque-inspired hand-painted mural on the vaulted ceiling and an enormous walk-in mahogany closet with extensive built-ins.

  1. The awe. The grandeur. The splendor. The private lake-front beach! The 319+ acres!!!!!!!!! And then there’s the fact that I can’t afford this place even in my dreams. Bummer.

  2. Truly a grandeur masterpiece! There isn’t anything I don’t like with this place (except perhaps the price tag)….

  3. I often think about winning the lottery for hundreds of millions and purchasing a property like this. I would turn it into a family compound. My older daughter, is a professor of education and she does research on educational public policy for homeless and transient populations . I would give it to her and let her turn it into a a free school for the kids she worries about .My other daughter could have her animal rescue organization there too, and I could watch my grandchildren grow up. That would be a dream.

  4. It definitely is grand and beautiful, however, I have to admit that the kitchen was a big disappointment . And why put the washer and dryer in your kitchen?

  5. Oh gosh… a grand mansion for sure, but sadly, way, way waaaay over-done. There doesn’t seem to be any flow at all between the rooms / living spaces. Some rooms seem over crowded with furnishings. A previous comment questioned why the washer and dryer were in the kitchen… I believe that blue and white and yellow room is the laundry room and the kitchen is not shown… or if it is, it’s lost somewhere in this monster of a house.

  6. All this big old house andhe washer/dryerare in the kitchen!!! surely they can afford to make a laundry room

  7. You missed the kitchen pictures. Its a kitchen great room area where the deer heads hang on the stone wall. I would like to know how many full time staff it takes to keep it up, how much it costs and how much are the taxes. I need a pool too!
