Description

This rarely offered historic Colonial Revival is being marketed for sale! In the heart of Colbert, GA. Did you know that the town of Colbert was originally called "Five Forks and was later renamed for J. Fletcher Colbert, who built this home in 1900. A few of the interesting details about the home include a built-in china cabinet, which has his name and "Five Forks" etched on one of the doors. One of the beds has the Colbert nameon it and most of the furniture is from the mid-to-late 1800's! Also known as the Colbert-Benton House, the home is one of the few you'll find that has a working elevator! Sitting on just under two fenced acres, this landmark property boasts turn of the century character, charm, and details that can only be found in a period home like this. This two-story all brick home has been renovated over the years with new current upgrades to provide comfortable, modern-day living while still maintaining the deep history that created the story of what this home is all about. The home welcomes you with all the splendor you'd expect upon entering the grand foyer. Exquisite details come alive with original hardwood flooring, oversized floor-to-ceiling windows, 10ft ceilings, decorative-antiqued fixtures, eight (8) original tile accented fireplaces in several rooms, and so much more. You can access the parlor off the foyer through hidden pocket doors and the formal dining room beyond. Created originally to host large dinner parties, the dining room is oversized and is appointed once again with a custom built-in China cabinet as well as a bay window adding extra space to an already large room! A Butler's pantry and breakfast room separate the kitchen from the dining room. Full of all of today's amenities, the kitchen has everything the home needs including plenty of cabinet and countertop space. It also has a sit-in bar overlooking the breakfast room. The main floor also offers 2 bedroom options as well as a full bath. Designed with multi-functionality, these bedrooms could easily serve as additional living areas, a private study or owners suite on the main. As noted, a working elevator allows for easy access to the next level. The 2nd level comprises 3-4 additional bedroom options with 2 of them providing full suite potential with the original wood door connecting the bedrooms and giving access to the completely updated full bath. There are currently 5 bedrooms, but the upstairs "sitting room" could be an extra bedroom as needed. Also, there are two central air units and two central gas furnaces, each for upstairs and downstairs, all of which are less than 6 years old. Features continue to the outdoors with the detached garage, lovely tree lined grounds, barn that includes a workshop and additional storage, and professional landscaping plus the perfect place for a vegetable garden! There are also mature pecan trees that produce the best tasting pecans you've every had!Contact your agent to schedule a showing today or reach out to the listing agent for more details and to schedule a private showing tour on this beautiful one of a kind estate home.
