    I love the tub placement in the bathroom.

  3. ArkhamArkham says: 76 comments

    Oh my goodness, this is stunning.

  4. AvatarMeredith says: 19 comments

    Wow, wow, wow. Some of it is a little too ornate for my personal preferences, but it is an absolutely amazing and beautiful house.

  5. AvatarKristl DeBord says: 31 comments

    Well, it’s about $300,000 over my budget, but I could be persuaded to sell my soul. Oh my this place is a dream!!

  6. Avatarshari73 says: 29 comments

    WOW! What a fancy house! I could just imagine taking a bath in that tub… Does the wonderful furniture come with it, (I wish, lol)? That second picture had me sold! So pretty. I don’t think my teenage boys would really appreciate all the frills, but the romantic in me certainly does. I’m afraid I would be unable to keep myself from flittering about those halls in a hoop skirt.

    Everything in this house seems “larger than life.” Not saying that’s bad, just a bit overwhelming.

    Owner’s Pinterest page on the most recent “restoration”.
    He said he wanted to spend the rest of his life here when he bought the place in 2014. Wonder what happened.

  9. AvatarRobb H says: 184 comments

    I do know its owner is on here so everyone, I will remind you to watch the comments as they can be misconstrued 🙂

    We looked at this house prior to the current owner purchasing this house. I am just curious what the current owner has done to the place since their purchase as there was a lot to be done and much of it was not what you can see in pictures. Maybe new plumbing, electrical or?

    This is a nice house.

        See 10-28-15. Their name was Salito. I had inquired about information at that time. They paid $425k as per Zillow just as an FYI and I am sure much was put into it.

    • AvatarPookha says: 144 comments

      On looking at the Pinterest page I see a pin that is titled ‘Replacing the roof’ showing a giant loader ready for work, so at least a few $ went that direction.

      Labor of love.

    What an impressive Stick/ Second Empire Victorian exterior, especially considering it was apparently a Greek Revival until the 1880’s. There’s nothing Greek Revival left in the house form or details. The price seems fair in an appreciating market for a somewhat famous house of this size and quality this close to Atlanta.

    • AvatarErnie says: 132 comments

      In the room with the figural encaustic tile fireplace the wall paper/stencilled borders next to ceiling are Greek Revival in style.

      • jeklstudiojeklstudio says: 949 comments

        Yes, and those tiles made me catch my breath! Simply stunning. I love figural tiles of any kind. The ‘bird’s eye view photo’ near the top? WOW!

    my new all time favorite!!!!! Would not change a single thing about this home

  12. AvatarPacific Northwest Girl says: 34 comments

    Perhaps a bit fussy for my personal taste, this home is absolutely exquisite. The owners appear to have done a marvelous job. The furniture is so very complementary to the style. This one is certainly dream-worthy!

    Put a fork in me, I am done. Best house ever.

  14. AvatarKaren Melchiorre says: 1 comments

    I’ve always loved this house and loved driving by just to look at it. to see the pictures of the inside is gorgeous! the price is definitely out of my range, but if I had the money I would buy it in a heartbeat. I consider this my dream house and would love to have it.

    Absolutely LOVE this baby, just as it is, and I would definitely want all that furniture included, as it just seems to “belong”!

  17. AvatarTiffany says: 2 comments

    Oh my I would probably just sit in a chair on the lawn and stare at the exterior of this house all day long and be content. It is amazingly beautiful.

  18. Avatarjoy dickson says: 5 comments

    hi im from Melbourne Australia and I just am always amazed how your houses are so cheap in comparison to ours but then again we don’t have the population you do right across our country…. most of our people are around the coast and we have huge desert in middle… however this home is remarkable…. I think if it were mine I would lighten it up, I have a 3rd generation 100 year old home about 8 ks from one of our main cities MELBOURNE….. but it still is amazing to behold and I love that I have connected to this page.

  20. AvatarMary says: 39 comments

    Oh my!!! Everything is so tastefully done!
    The colors!! So lovely.
    The lambrequins!
    The Bradbury papers so beautiful! And well placed- not over the top but enough to perfectly accent a house like this.
    The kitchen! Gorgeous.
    Love how there is not one plain white cieling– as it should be in a Victorian.
    Did I see Toile in the bathroom?! Love.
    This house should be shown to people who think when they have a Victorian they need every wall and fabric in a floral!!

  21. AvatarPookha says: 144 comments

    Nearly 5 acres–a house like this needs that kind of space. A real beauty! I’m always a pushover for stairs with clever landings, you know, in case you get tired going up and down.

  22. AvatarEster Stefanidis says: 12 comments

    This isn’t a house, it’s a museum full of history. I would take it in an instant if I could move. It’s funny to hear people from around the country speak about the price. Here where I live a raised ranch goes for $500. without even a quarter acre. A house like that in CT would probably go for 5 to 11 million depending on the town. Almost six thousand square ft of space would cost you at least $33 thousand a year in taxes. If I sold my stupid little raised ranch I would have more than enough to buy this. It just breaks my heart. I know only one person in GA. 🙁

    Back in the late 80’s, a little 90 pound lady from New Orleans named Souci, purchased this home and did a ground up renovation and some added some improvements to the site. She was a renovator & as I understood had renovated numerous homes in New Orleans. She had a real accent and was quite a fiesty little lady full of energy, p__s & vinegar. Ms. Souci spearheaded the renovation and actually did most of the stripping of all paint. etc. on interior & exterior on scaffolding along with some hired laborers. The home was without a doubt, one of the most beautiful homes I had ever seen. At that time, I was an appraiser in Atlanta and had been in 1,000’s of homes. This home made me fall in love with Newnan, known then & earlier as “the city of homes”. Mrs. Souci played a great role in my decision to purchase a Queen Anne Victorian home, renovation and moving to Atlanta.

    Unfortunately, Mrs. Souci died of LEAD poisoning with her demise coming from “Hands On” stripping all of those dangerous coats of paint, etc. with propane & heat gun.She made a bed & breakfast of the place. Her location was on the busiest 2 lane streetcoming into Newnan from a particular direction. Traffic was lauto and commercial truck drive thru as well,24-7. The property also adjoined what used to be a historic Coca Cola warehouse/bottling plant, if my memory serves me correctly. Mrs Souci had great taste and was a true lover of quality workmanship,
    design and architectural beauty. It was my pleasure & honor to have crossed paths
    with her in my lifetime of which I shall never forget.

    I do not know anything else about the property after her death.

    this is it. oh i hope it does not have a “past” and the owner is fine. the house with the sleigh was it yesterday, now this today! might have to take a break and have a cup of tea. and yes, the prices, here in Coral Gables nothing that you could live in for less than $500,000. oh the wood, and the tiles, heaven.

  25. AvatarJoy Louters says: 119 comments

    Thank you so much, Dan, for that bit of history on this grand home. If I could afford this magnificent place, I would cherish and embrace it for the woman who died saving it. It’s such a sad story and had me in tears. I think I would have loved meeting her. We could sit on one of the over-stuffed sofas, drinking mint juleps sharing our passion for the breathtaking beauty around us. I would name the property Souci’s Place in honor of her if it were mine.

    Be still my heart. What a dream it would be to be able to live in a such a place. I will never be able to afford such beauty and am very sad about that because I would treat this home with the love and respect it deserves. Just simply beautiful.

    This is a stunner! And like others have mentioned, thanks for the history Dan, and thanks for the additional information everyone upthread.

    It’s no wonder Hollywood has used this as a location a few times. And I’m sure it won’t be the last.

    I’ve really enjoyed studying the photos and like others, have enjoyed the amazing furniture… especially all the dark large furniture in the ground floor stairwell/foyer. One thing, I’ve noticed the furniture placement seems a bit random in places and none of the beds have mattresses. Was an antique shop hired to “dress” the house for sale? Or because of circumstances furnishings were placed as best as they could? Looking at the owner’s Pinterest page, he certainly has good taste and high intentions for this house, so I could also see the furnishings being the previous owners as well… but just not arranged to be lived in just yet. Like I said, I’m curious.

    I do hope the next owners love and appreciate this home as much as the last two owners. It’s a gem.

    What an incredible beauty! I think that the price is quite good for all of that amazing woodwork!

  30. jeklstudiojeklstudio says: 949 comments

    On the subject of the furnishings…
    1. The chairs across from the sofa in photo no. 8 I WANT!
    2. The single chair next to the fireplace in photo no. 20 With the little fringy thing going on? I really WANT!

    Fantastico! With pool big enough for laps and the extra cabin that would be perfect for my painting studio. Oh, for an extra few hundred thousand…. Thanks for posting, this was especially fun browsing.

    I have seen this house in several publications. It has always appealed to me. It is a beautiful house and I hope the next owner loves it as much as the past owners obviously have!

    I have been by this home several times while in Newnan, Ga. It is truly eye catching and on a beautiful old street. Is that a swimming pool in the back yard?

  36. AvatarEyesOnYou1959 says: 267 comments

    Absolutely gorgeous! I wouldn’t change a thing! Love the stained glass

  37. AvatarTiffany Campbell says: 6 comments

    Unfortunately, Dan Karski is wrong. Not about my Grandmother, Sam Soucy’s accent NOR about her attitude of being full of piss and vinegar but about her DEMISE as he so calls it. She did not die of LEAD POISOINING. My Grandmother LOVED this house, put everything she had in her, heart & soul into it. She hand selected every Bradbury wallpaper in this home, pieced together every fireplace by hand, tile by tile. My grandparents only sold the home because she was so ill and could no longer clean the home or make it up and down the stairs as the cancer had taken over her body. I wish I could post the photos here of what the house looked like on the inside and out when it was in its prime! Also, the Coca-Cola building is two doors down with a house in the middle. There was actually a tunnel under the home that went to the Coca Cola building and was used as an escape route during the Civil War.

    Have always had a dream that if I won the lottery….. My husband teases “how would you take care of it”? I would have staff, of course! Hey, it’s my dream! lol!

    We stayed there when it was a b&b in 1995. It was beautifully furnished. One of the bathrooms had a birdcage shower. The kitchen cabinets were dark wood which really looked better. It was our 25th anniversary and I had wanted to see the inside of this house since I was a child. Glad we did because a few months later it was out of business and empty.

    • AvatarTiffany Campbell says: 6 comments

      You are right, Cecilia, the dark kitchen cabinets were a much better fit! Do you remember the copper in the kitchen on the cabinets? The birdcage shower! That was my grandfather’s idea…. He LOVED that shower!

      • AvatarCecilia Smith says: 4 comments

        Tiffany, the dark cabinets were so pretty and the whole kitchen looked like it had just been redone but it suited the house so well. I think I remember the copper. We sat in the kitchen for a while and talked with the innkeepers. I’ve got pictures of a lot of the rooms if I can ever find them! Loved the birdcage shower. Was this your grandfather’s home?

        • AvatarTiffany Campbell says: 6 comments

          Yes, my grandparents. Purchased in 84′ and it was in horrible conditions. Sold in 94′.

          • AvatarCecilia Smith says: 4 comments

            Were your grandparents the Soucys? When I was a child we would ride through Newnan on the way to my grandparents in Ala. I always loved that house. How lucky you were to be able to visit your grandparents there.

    Tiffany sent in some scans of when the home was featured in Atlanta Homes & Lifestyle. Tiffany, what date was the article published?

    Added to page, at bottom of listing photos. Thank you Tiffany for sharing!

    Those old pictures are so beautiful. I love the kitchen, that is how I would do it. I bet the rest of the interior was wonderful also. Thanks Tiffany.

  42. AvatarRobbguympls says: 184 comments

    I loved seeing the old pictures. I wonder why this wonderful kitchen was removed. I am not into the over the top non-period kitchens. This was one thing that put us over not purchasing this house a few years ago. When we saw it no electricity was on so we did not see the basement. Love to have seen the tunnel(s).

  43. AvatarDenise says: 30 comments

    This house leaves me breathless! Fabulous! And while out of my price range, if in my area it would be priced in the millions.

  45. AvatarRhea Kamendat says: 24 comments

    Oh my gosh, I have fallen hopelessly in love with this home. It is absolutely breathtaking. It is so beautiful; could picture myself in my Civil War dress sitting in the dining room in front of the fireplace and also out on the graceful wraparound porch on a cool evening with a glass of sweet tea & some friends. Its not too terribly far from my Aunts home on Longview Dr in Atlanta. You could even picture yourself walking thru the beautiful gardens. If ever there were a way, that would be my dream home. So happy to have viewed it,
