    What’s the name of the white and pink bushes?

    I would say this house is more of a Greek Revival cottage than a Victorian, and is likely older than 1875. The mantles are Greek Revival, and the floor boards are wide plank. Nice house!

      You’re correct. It’s a classic Greek Revival. The columns & other fussy brackets on the front porch aren’t original. Would have square columns with capital & base. Greek Revival’s beauty is in symmetry & simplicity.
      The floor plan is true to Greek Revival as is the mantel.
      I believe the ‘panels’ above most of the windows replace original transom lites that were operable for ventilation. Usually two panes side by side.
      Hope this helps.

        While the house is indeed a Greek Revival, that does not necessarily preclude the porch from being original. The porch is typical of what was found on many mid-nineteenth century Gothic Revivals; the two styles were popular at the same time. Many houses of the period mix styles; it is quite common to find such discrepancies. If the house was actually built as late as 1875 it is even more likely that the porch might stray from conventional Greek Revival designs.

        The panels above the windows are likely decorative in nature. Had they been intended as transoms they would appear in more than one room (this room is on the front) and there would be evidence of them on the exterior.

    I love every inch of this! Now, if only I could survive the GA summers…

    I love everything about this light, airy house and the gardens are just gorgeous! I want to take lessons from whoever did the garden.

    The garden is just so lovely. It appears to be a house in which lots of living is done. Very comfortable looking.

    A pretty house, indoors & out. I even like the colors of the walls, as they are. And the outdoor spaces & gardens are lovely.

    If you’d like similar Azaleas, the best white Indica Azalea is G.G.Gerbing. There is a pink, George Tabor, and a purple, Formosa. Indica Azaleas have larger leaves but bloom just once in the Spring. They are the ones you might have seen at The Masters in Augusta. Encore Azaleas come in lots of colors but most are more compact and have smaller foliage. They also bloom best with more sun though I would avoid full, hot sun. They do bloom Spring and Fall. As a landscape architect, I’m not crazy about Azaleas as a foundation planting (though to each their own). Look at dwarf varieties of Camellias, such as Shishi Gashira or Hot Flash or Spreading Yews like Prostrata or Dukes Garden. Both are darker green and are more handsome year-round, in my opinion. Or layer down from the Azaleas, if you love them, with something more more structural like the mentioned shrubs. I love looking at suitable, period shrubs for historic homes. There are lots of antique varieties of roses that you can still find for almost any aged home. In 1843, the year our house was built, ‘Souvenir de la Malmaison’ was introduced so it now grows by our mailbox. Look at Antique Rose Emporium online. So many good books about period plantings are available. I wish more antique home owners were interested in period plantings. I don’t limit myself to them but I sure like to use accurate plant varieties whenever possible.

      Thanks. It’ll be next year before we do anything but I appreciate the information for researching what will be best for planting.

      How can I get in touch with you, Scotty? I have a historic home in Macon, and I am interested in getting advice on appropriate plant selections.

      • Georgia Girl says: 63 comments

        Hi Janet, I’m originally from Macon. I miss living there and being with family. It’s a beautiful place with lots of history and beautiful historical homes. How wonderful you own one. Good luck with your plant selections and planting.

        Hi, Janet. I’m not sure f I’m allowed to post an email address and since this is one of my very favorite websites, I’ll wait to hear from Kelly before leaving a work address or number. Or maybe there’s another way to connect? I’m in Lithonia/Conyers. I sure do love Macon and Nu-way dogs! Our house was built in 1843 and we’re only the second family to own it. It’s one of the oldest homes left in the Atlanta area. I’d be glad to offer some advice if you need it.

    Beautiful home!! THe gardens are exactly what I’d expect for the South!

    I like the size of this house, this is really cute!

    A DREAMY property for sure…exactly what I’ve always longed for! I was confused about the layout of the common spaces of the house. Starting with the 1st photo that looked to be a furnished Entry Foyer? Everything else about this home, I like & the fact that it has a Guest house! I would have to move the center island in the kitchen further away from the counters across from it for more ease of movement in the kitchen. Other than that, this is seriously a Dream Property come true!
