KNOWN AS ONE OF COWETA COUNTY’S FINEST AND OLDEST ANTEBELLUM HOMES, THIS CIRCA 1824 HOME HAS BEEN VIRTUALLY UNTOUCHED AND FEATURES MANY ORIGINAL ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS! Set on an idyllic 112+/- acre farm with pond this home is perfect for the historic home enthusiast with a passion to own and restore a rare architectural gem! The Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation has great interest in seeing this piece of Georgia history restored.
The original home was a 2 story, four room farmhouse with front porch. As was common in those days, a decade after its completion the owners built the current 2 story four room Greek Revival addition which features a grand facade, with impressive brick columns and 2nd story balcony. The double front door with the original skeleton key opens to the foyer and spectacular spiral staircase – the craftsmanship is outstanding!
Flanking the foyer are 2 formal rooms on the main floor and 2 bedrooms on the upper level, each with an original fireplace and mantel. Original pine floors, shiplap, molding, mantels, windows, and doors remain adding to the historic character and charm. You can feel the history! While the home will benefit greatly from restoration, it is a solid house and in good shape.
This magnificent estate has a detached 4 car garage and historic barn on the main grounds and then expands to lovely wooded and open areas with a beautiful pond – perfect for a primary homestead or a weekend farm retreat! It is convenient to Peachtree City, Newnan, and Senoia for shopping and dining and Atlanta International Airport for easy travel!
