The 5 bedroom and 2 & 1/2 bathroom house is surrounded by a aluminum fence and private tree line, the main entrance is on Arnall Drive.
Its like stepping through a secret garden and discovering a world of the past.
As you enter through the gate you are welcomed into an open round-a-bout driveway to this 3,670 square foot home built in 1845.
This home has had only 3 owners and most of its southern charm are original features. The heart of the home has twin fireplaces on each side of the house that start on the first floor and run up though the top of the 3rd floor.
The whole house is heart pine, plaster walls, original doors with antique hardware and a skeleton key. Each room has a working woodburing fireplace.
This home would be a wonderful Bed & Breakfast Inn, an awesome Wedding Venue or an AirBNB to be able to tap into a business that this area truly needs.
The brick pavers lead you to the large front porch that can accompany large rocking chairs to relax in during the summer or have a wonderland of decorations for parties and holidays.
The 8 foot shutters give the home a Grand look along with the heart pine ceiling, floors and siding. You are greeted at the original door with knocker.
As you step through the threshold you enter in the first floor hall with 12 foot ceilings that have heart pine floors, plaster walls and antique light fixtures.
To the right of the hallway is the formal living room with shutter styles window treatments a working wood-burning fireplace and large floor to ceiling windows with original glass panes.
To the left of the hallway is the formal dining room with shutter styles window treatments a working wood-burning fireplace and large floor to ceiling windows with original glass panes. This room is connected to the kitchen through the butlers pantry for food prep and serving.
If you walk through the hallway you reach the beginning of the steps on your left that lead you to the 2nd floor or the entry way to the kitchen. The kitchen has been partially updated without losing the integrity of the old world look. There is a cast iron prep/scullery style sink, dishwasher, and a dual oven/warmer unit with a commercial style hood vent. On the breakfast bar is a ceramic vegetable rinsing sink.
Or if you look to your right is the Master bedroom on the Main level. This room has chair moulding with vertical shiplap style wainscoting and 2 master closets. The master bathroom has dual vanity pedestal sinks, a stand alone claw soaking tub and a separate shower. The master wardrobe closet has large overhead summerizing and winterizing closets. An amazing must-have in addition to the 3 wardrobe closets at floor level.
And if you look straight ahead, you'll find the comfy sunroom is connected to the large laundry/utility room and a half bathroom. The view from here is the back of the home that leads to the gated pool and pool house.
Before we get the pool house, we'll take a step back into the hallway and make our way upstairs. The window at the top of the stairs during the day is warm and inviting, it brings in natural light and has 2 silimar sized bedrooms on the right and left.
There are 2 more identical bedrooms opposite of that and 1 bathroom to share that has a stand up shower.
The best part of the home is on the 3rd story, where the whole floor is a large family room to play, relax or cozy up a good book next to the built it bookshelves.
Now the real gem is the detached pool house that was a later addition to the property. The pool house that a lodge feel to it from the large full wall brick fireplace, perfect for small or large gatherings with surround sound system and a plasma television. It has a full kitchen, great for entertaining and barbecues, a full bathroom and a showering station outside for rinsing off before and after taking a dip in the replastered pool.
The pool house kitchen has access to a oversized screened in porch that has access to 2 rooms, the garden room, that houses a large watering sink and 1 of the 2 offices.
From the center of the pool house you have access to a large covered patio that has 2 private office spaces, 1 on each side. There also is additional storage in the attic.
From the covered patio, you have an extended concrete slab that has a basketball hoop and access to the back side easement for tons of parking.
