      I thought so! Dang, they did a really nice job: very lite hand at it, with no unnecessary “upgrades”. The house just sparkles! So sorry about the folks having to sell so quickly. Hope they are doing well. Just splendid. I really love this place. Such delightful proportions, and a rad little summer kitchen too, (not to mention a great price finished)! Gorgeous..

    This home is apparently possessed by some kind of spirits since it was offered for sale, sold, renovated, re-acquired and offered again, all in less than 3 months! Not possible to do that in the real world without otherworldly assistance.
    Spirits with good taste and a light touch too, since they did such a beautiful job!

    • AussieBabbs says: 4 comments

      I am sure the spirit and I would het on wonderfully!!!! This house is simply divine – I love it!!!

      Love this website too ?

    Terrific job of renovation without “modernizing.” It’s clean, bright, done so the house’s age & honest grace shows well. Near Kennesaw battlefield too — last night I read Sherman’s memoirs of the battle & approach to it partly via Pine Mountain. The house is really adorable on the outside too.

      Kennesaw is north of Atlanta, this is farther south about two hours. Pine Mountain in Kennesaw is an actual mountain.

        I live in Kennesaw. Our mountain is called Kennesaw Mountain. However, Pine Mountain GA is a sweet little town with Callaway Gardens nearby. It’s a very pretty and peaceful area of Georgia.

    This house is still showing up as being for sale on Zillow. Seems odd that it wouldn’t sell.

    His credit wasn’t approved so it’s available again.

    It’s darling! Perfectly done, not overdone at all.

    Here’s the DEAL! Our buyer’s credit was not approved and we need to pay off renovation balloon note soooo…to avoid rolling it into a mortgage, we will accept $99,900 if closed by March 15, 2016. And we will pay for Deed transfer.

      Thanks Pamela. I really love this house and want it to find a buyer, I’ll repost it to the front page with the new price (and annotation.)

    Terrific house but as a single (straight) man from California (car has Cali plates). I think moving into a pink house in Georgia might be, uh, eventful… ;- ) Other than that, I’m there cause I love that state. Nice people and a huge variety of cultures and geography.

  13. Laurie W. says: 1741 comments

    Oh, wish I could move right now! It’s so adorable. Sentiment doesn’t help the sellers, though — SOMEBODY WONDERFUL BUY IT PLEASE!

    This house is in my favorites. It is a little jewel of a home. I truly wish I could buy it for a getaway. It’s perfect.

  15. Emily says: 1 comments

    This is the cutest! My dream little place in the heart of Georgia. I can’t wait to do what I love…someday.

  16. Jen says: 7 comments

    TommyQ, single? I would date you, pink house and all! Haha I don’t think a woman will care what color the house is, so much as you are responsible enough to take care of said house! And being a former SoCal transplant that is now back home in Iowa, good luck in Cali’s Real/estate. About this amazing gem of a house! The size is perfect. Land is manageable but more than a sliver. Perfect place to start and end a family…this house has Happily Ever After, written all over it!

  17. Longing for home says: 2 comments

    Oh, this is so lovely. I wish I could move there tomorrow!!! (From California, too).
    It feels like home.

  18. Mary says: 22 comments

    I love this house and we are preparing to move. If we didn’t have a brand new grandson we are trying to move closer to I. Iowa, This would be the absolute perfect house for us. Character, charm, southern hospitality, less expensive note then we have now and Civil war . Oh if only!,, The one thing that caught my eye though that bothers me is the 4 locks on the front door. ? Is it s rough crime ridden neighborhood or area?

    • Pamela Williams says: 17 comments

      You might be seeing the old door knockers on the front doors. There are only deadbolts and handles (without locks) on the doors. No crime in the area to my knowledge to date. It is safe there. Inside there are still old barricade forks on the walls. We left the for nostalgia sake.

    I read in the comments from the last time this was posted that Google maps will not take you to this house. So, I have found Owl Lane and I’m looking up and down Trammell Road, as directed, and I don’t know if I’ve found this house or not. Can anybody help?

  21. Pamela Williams says: 17 comments

    Map-quest takes to there. Google maps are off a little…the property outline is there…look just above to the top of the outline and you will see the house among the trees. Your Garmin GPS will take you right to it as well.

    Kelly, I am seriously thinking about this house. I fell in love with it when it first came out but it was off the market too quick for me. I am going to try to go see it this weekend with my husband. It would be a huge lifestyle change (get out of the rat race) but Pine Mountain is a great area. My parents had a weekend farm up there for years. My husband proposed to me at the little chapel in the woods at Callaway Gardens. Furthermore, Columbus Ga is not that far away and that is a really nice city with everything you need. I am surprised you are not thinking about it. It is a little more colonial than the Georgia Vernacular you like but it is beautiful and so well done. Maybe the person who buys it could pick up a few more acres when they got there.

      Too far from my husbands family and job. He works in Forsyth County and his family lives here, so we have to stick to this area. Otherwise it would have been a perfect little house for us, just too far away.

      Let me know if you get a chance to go see the home and how it goes!

    Wow it looks so much bigger in the interior photos… I love it!

  25. Pamela Williams says: 17 comments

    Yes, there is a possibility of getting more acerage.

    Is this property still for sale?

  27. Pamela Williams says: 17 comments

    Yes. The price posted is a cash price. Owner financing options will have a brokerage fee added.

  28. Julles says: 535 comments

    I was going down to see it a couple of weeks ago but the agent told me he had sold it. It must have fallen through. I just might try again to see it.

  29. pamela williams says: 17 comments

    Sorry you were mislead. No agents are involved. The same thing reportedly happened to others. I will be showing it to some folks from out of town on Easter Sunday from 3-4 pm. I can show it from 2-3 pm or 4-5 pm if you can make it down…let me know. 334-468-4963.

  30. Julles says: 535 comments

    Went to see the house today and all I can say is wow. The pictures do not do it justice. It was so much more than I expected. You felt the history as soon as you walked in and could feel the civil war living when you walked through the rooms. It was as close to colonial style as you can get in Georgia, simplistic, clean lines and light and airy. The power was off but you wouldn’t have known with the amount of light in the house. The temperature of the house was cool with thick solid walls and very high ceilings. The owner said the house stayed that cool through the summer except for the two attic rooms. The heat in the home is gas fireplaces, it also has a well and a septic system. The bathrooms are functional but need replacing and the kitchen is very minimal and would need to be reworked. The rooms aren’t huge but a nice size and you could put a new kitchen in the dining room and make a large bathroom in one of the parlors. By doing this you could make minimal changes in the walls and floors. The house is on pretty land but needs landscaping although the picket fence is wonderful. The house has such a good feeling in it. The cons are that even though it is livible it really needs work. But you could do it slowly in your own timing. Last of all the owner is a jewel and knows the history of the house. She could not have been more gracious. I could move in tomorrow happily but my husband unfortunately doesn’t feel the same. While he thought it was a cool house, he worried about the work it needed and he said it just didn’t speak to him. I am really sad over that.

      Thanks Julles! Sounds like a dream house. I wish it were in the north part of Georgia because I would so be all over this! It’s just an impossibility to move so far from my husbands family and his job.

      North Georgia….WHY?! WHY must you be so void of awesome homes like this?!

      Appreciate the info and glad you got to see it in person (I’m jealous!)

      • Pat McNaughton says: 3 comments

        Kelly…hope your health is steadily improving…. I don’t know you personally, but you keep the light for so many old house dreamers! I have a contract on this little gem….yes, it needs work, but it’s not scary…..I wanted it before Pam (thankfully) took it, but the timing was off. I’ll wait to do the changes necessary to finish what has been started until I’ve had a chance to prioritize them. It’s what I’ve been looking for and hope some day you can come see it and will keep you informed. I would not have found this on my own….Thank you so very much. Take care of yourself first….Pat McN.

    Drove by a few minutes ago. It’s in the woods with a couple of bigger homes just up the road and a foundation ruin next door. Very cute, but too far from family for us. I would insulate and finish 2 rooms and at least a half bath in that attic. It is SO darling and a pretty setting.

  32. Pat mcnaughton says: 3 comments

    Nope…sale did not fall through…closing early August. Will keep everyone updated on progress… Don’t worry… I’m not going to make it into a Victorian…. Am going as close to 1857 Greek revival as I can… Will start with insulation, electrical, and geothermal first…. You know, the small stuff!

  33. pamela williams says: 17 comments

    Hi Kelly,

    We finally closed! I am excited about the new owner and her vision for ‘Ellington Hall.’

    Thank you for your continued support and interest.
    Now, I have a 1896 house in Warm Springs, I am thinking of selling…..it is in much better condition and hopefully, I can list it soon.

    Blessings,
    Pam

    Congratulations, Pam and the new owner. I love the house, but it was too far from work for us to make it work. I’m so happy it has a new person to love it!
