This circa 1840 vernacular Greek Revival cottage is ready to relocate to the perfect site where it will again be the very picture of Southern charm! Located in historic Griffin, Georgia, it offers over 2,000 sf of light-filled living space. The first floor features a wide central hall flanked by two rooms on each side with a secondary stair hall at the rear. An el includes one original room and another added sometime around 1920. A rear facing stair leads to the second floor with another wide central hall flanked by spacious bedrooms.
With such classic style, the potential is almost tangible. Though in need of complete restoration, the house is structurally sound and many original details remain intact including wide plank Heart Pine flooring, four-panel doors, casings with detailed backband, Greek Revival mantels, and most of the none-over-nine windows. A beautiful and original field stone chimney can be reinforced so that it may be moved along with the house.
The threat: A blight ordinance imposed by the city of Griffin has targeted this house for demolition. Any interested party is encouraged to respond as soon as possible. The city will assist with a reasonable timeline for relocation once a buyer has been found. Until such time the house will remain on the list for pending demolition. The city's land bank has offered at no cost to the buyer a selection of parcels in their inventory for relocation of the cottage.
