Property Details

Proudly sited above scenic Lexington Highway just 17 miles from Athens, this extraordinary 1820 home is nestled on 1.9 acres and screened by southern gardens. A monumental federal fa ade is enhanced by a 1836 renovation in the Greek Revival style and softened by an inviting 1911 veranda. Recent restoration work includes nine-over-nine custom wood windows and shutters on the front elevation. A gravel drive brings you to an outbuilding suitable for automotive storage, and a private fully fenced backyard with chicken coop, raised garden beds, and fruit and nut trees. Located in the Lexington Historic District, this home is an easy stroll to the exceptionally well-preserved built environment of this 1806 town just 20 minutes from bustling Athens and the University of Georgia. Elegant principal rooms define the main floor. Period details include mantels, functioning pocket doors, and heart pine hardwood floors. Historic lighting fixtures include a bronze entry chandelier and dining room fixture attributed to Waterford. A wide center hall greets guests with an elegant staircase and an original federal closet stair remains to enhance circulation. The formal dining room can accommodate gatherings of any scale and is served by a butler's pantry and utility room. These service areas lead to the recently refreshed kitchen with fireplace, gas range, and Fisher Paykel drawer dishwashers. The main floor primary suite - a rarity in homes of this era - incorporates a private dressing room, updated historic bath with clawfoot tub, and a cedar-lined walk-in closet. Adjacent to the main floor suite is an owner's study or sitting room. This grandly proportioned room could function as a nursery or fourth bedroom. Two additional en suites are located upstairs and share a beautifully proportioned stair hall suitable as a sitting room. The configuration affords flexibility while retaining separate and distinct spaces and historic originality. Recent restoration has been overseen by a noted preservationist including the painstaking restoration of the original federal-era color scheme. Updated systems include new HVAC in 2020, roof and paint in 2022. An extraordinary opportunity to live well in one of the grandest homes of its style and period in the region.
