Description

Own a piece of Georgia's history- the distinguished Winfrey-Davis-Hawkins House, built in approximately 1838 by the family of the first president of UGA. This majestic Antebellum home is situated on a picturesque 12 acres, only 15 minutes from downtown Athens. From the moment you arrive at this splendid property, you will feel like you are settling into a scene from days gone by. From the mature Pecan, Fig, Magnolia, Japanese Magnolia, and Ginko trees, to the numerous flowering Daffodils, Irises, Azaleas, Dogwoods, Camellias, Morning Glories, Gardenias, and Blackberry and Blueberry bushes, there are a variety of colors, blooms, and textures to delight you throughout the entire year. This magnificent home features 11 ft high beadboard ceilings, crown molding, hardwood floors throughout, 9 fireplaces with antique mantles, picture molding, solid interior doors, and large windows allowing bright, natural light. The rooms are grand in scale and rich in historic details. There are 2 bedrooms on the main floor, along with a formal dining room and living room, a welcoming foyer with a magnificent staircase, and a completely renovated kitchen. The kitchen features stainless appliances and farm sink, granite counter tops, custom cabinetry, and a fireplace. The upstairs has a large central hallway with access to a front porch, 3 spacious bedrooms, a bathroom, and a smaller room that could be used as a bedroom or office space. The stairway used to be opened at the top of the stairs, and the original banisters are stored at the home, as well as the original exterior shutters. The side screened porch catches the morning sun, and there are amazing views of the sunset from the kitchen. The 10 acre growing field has been carefully managed with organic practices over the past three years, with soil amendments being added and soil tests done throughout each growing season to continue to improve the health and fertility of the soil. Prior to being an organic vegetable production, the farm was in cattle which also added to the overall quality of the soil. There is a new deep well for irrigation and multiple spigots on property. This property is currently part of a CUVA, or Conservation Use Value Assessment, (an agreement in which the landowner agrees to maintain the land in qualifying use in exchange for property tax values based on land's productivity, not FMV) so there is a significant tax reduction through 2026. There is a garage , tractor barn, and hoop houses (hoop houses are negotiable with sale of property) on the property. This home could be an amazing primary residence, but it also has the potential to be a magnificent bed and breakfast with some alterations. Come view this impressive and stately property today; it is a rare gem with authentic historical integrity that has been tastefully preserved throughout time. (Please note: Seller shall retain the right to farm and harvest the crops that are currently planted through July 1, 2022.)
