    Such a unique fretwork installation is in the foyer! Can’t say I’ve seen anything similar to it in the past but it looks old. I believe it was a form of a Hall Tree and combined space divider with a framed mirror (missing) and surrounding fretwork elements. Some fretwork elements appear to be missing but it would be rewarding to learn what it all originally looked like. I’m also wondering if this was an earlier (1886) house that was converted to the Queen Anne style about a decade later. Interesting design overall here.

      I wondered the same about that fretwork. Normally the stairs are a focal point, but a hall tree makes sense. Very unusual.

      Wonderfully dramatic entryway! Mirror might make some sense although I’ve seen quite a few of these with openings that made a presentation place for a vase or small sculpture. I think it harks back to the sense of exoticism and forbidden of the Harem screen which clearly marks a border. A halltree might present some problems being so close to the doorway. We need to find some vintage photos of this in it’s heyday.

      I too wondered about that foyer. It is quite unusual and agree that a redo may have been done. Wonderful painting of the front details.

      I wonder if there was stained or etched glass in the side panels. A magical little space there made bland with white paint, outside too IMO.

    I love the windows that were actually used as doors. Since they were taxed on doors they had windows that functioned as doors to allow flow and air. I really love the ones with the panels at the bottom that swing out. I would make this cutie as elegant as she deserves to be.

      how hard is it Mary being an aussie and drooling over these ridiculously cheap time capsules.
      Oh! and Kelly than you very much from all us aussies

  7. Adorable home. Beautiful flooring. Woodwork is pretty. I bet it was even more beautiful before it was painted.

    Wish there were more photos since I was blown away by the doll house look of it but can’t call it that since it is over 3,000 square feet! Agree with John S. about that odd divider placement of Hall Tree with Mirror missing – charming idea but I think I would rather have more room in the entry & narrow hall way by the stairs. Adore the exterior color scheme & love the black doors & window trim–however, I’ve noticed that over time-the sun rays has its way with that color. There are many old homes in Georgia that I adore & I’ve never met a true Southern Georgian that I did not like. Hospitable is the Southern way with charm and grace. I only wish the climate there was more to my liking! Otherwise, I would move there in a heartbeat!

    This house had me at the exterior. And then I saw the pool!

    I wonder if the fretwork in front of the stairs was added at a later time? If you’ve ever read anything about Feng Shui you’ll remember how the staircase is never supposed to point directly at the door. They say this means that money will flow out of the house, but not back in. Perhaps someone attempted to stop that outward flow?

    Is it just me, or is there just too much painted white … sweet home!

    NO not just you. It would be so lovely without the white paint.

    I honestly wish it would still be on the market in January. We are thinking of buying a home in that area Ned living there 6 months out of the year. We live in Canada and the I have relatives in the area.

    I wondered if this could have been a combined business/home at one time? Perhaps a Dr’s office? Being from the South, I’ve seen several similar over my years.

    Has anyone had any luck with either finding original photos or more pictures of the house?

    I just went to see this house now that its back on the market. A tree fell on the corner od the home where the kitchen is. Its currently listed for under 100k. It is a BEAUTIFUL home. Most everything in it looks original. All the bedrooms jave the small fireplaces.there is a claw tub in it tjat can be repaired. Its really an amazing house. I hope someone gets it tjat can afford to restore it soon otherwise it might be torn down.
