    Great house, impressive and surprising through and through, spacious and with large rooms. The center hall and stair hall are great, but it’s the porch that takes the top prize.

    Some of the finest tilework I’ve seen in any home on OHD and its everywhere! Perhaps the owner was in the ornamental tile business? (as well as marble) The word “beautiful” comes to mind to describe everything about this house-I’m surprised it isn’t priced much higher.

      I look through several tile pattern books including minton & hollis to see if I could locate the pattern. Unfortunately none that I saw matched perfectly, but a couple came close.

      That was the first thing I noticed too–phenomenal! Also, the pie warmer/radiator was genius as well.

    This was built for Edwin Marcus and Mattie Tate Cole.

    The cook’s quarters! I would love to take a peek in that building! Again, a house that needs staff.

    A beautiful home. It would be a treat to see this home decorated in the period correct furnishings. The kitchen and a couple of the bathrooms are a little over done for my taste but I’m sure the new owners will appreciate the updates.

    Being in the middle of a tile project myself, I see the work here and feel very inadequate. Beautiful house.

    My mind says I so need to live here. Unfortunately, my wallet says, keep dreaming! There isn’t anything I can see that I would change about this house. What a beauty!

    All this and only 6k taxes. In New York the taxes would be 50k.

    Newnan is the new Buckhead of the Southside of Atlanta. It has the Cancer Center of America there. Because of the growth in the medical fields, a new hospital has been built – Piedmont Newnan. To accommodate all the new people that are relocating there, many businesses have opened stores. It is costly to buy in Newnan but the amenities offered by the town are amazing. There’s easy access to I-85 and many SR34/154/54/74 – just to name a few that offer relief from traffic congestion and give you access to other parts of South Atlanta. Peachtree City is just a few moments away if you want to enjoy Lake Peachtree. 1 of the main attraction located close by is in Senoia – the home of the Walking Dead TV series, which is filmed there. There’s so much to do and see, I can’t see why anyone would leave Newnan to go anywhere else. I can remember when Newnan was a 2 horse town and there was nothing but all these lovely homes all through the town. Now, it is quite cosmopolitan with any / everything a person may want or need just a few moments away. This is a MUST HAVE if you are looking for a beautiful home in a nice Southern town.

    I love, love, LOVE this home. From the tile on the beautiful curved porch to the interior. My jaw dropped onto my desk when I saw the kitchen. Everything in this home screams ‘pride of ownership’. Thank you Kelly for posting this. This home is a “If I could move to Georgia and buy this home, I would!”

    Back in 80’s, I lived across street from this Home/Cole. At that time, they were in their 80’s.They are descendants of textile mill magnates of the south.
    The Coles were right out of a southern novel, so delightul & warm, friendly, polite, well mannered and educated. Mr. Cole was a giant of a man, large in stature, not obese,
    I will never forget Mr. Cole would always make a statement in a conversation with him as follows:
    “Well Dan, I can remember when cotton was king, men were men and women were women”.
    I recall they never had children of their own, but nieces/nephews.
    There was a lot of Newnan families that invested early on in Coca Cola stock and did quite well. Just a hop on the train to downtown Atlanta.
    I remember that the historic county jail was 1 block away toward the square.
    Many local folks wanted it torn down which was eventually done in the middle of the night. Ahh, small town southern politics from the good old days. The rest is history.

    I don’t understand the back porch with the steps going upstairs. How do you lock your home up?

    this home is beautiful from every angle. the sinks in the bathrooms are incredible. I am not normally a huge fan of pedestal sinks, but this one changed my mind forever. The corner sink is something too, and the tile! I think this house looks like it’s been loved every single day of it’s life. I hope it will continue to be so loved.

    Not sure how, but somehow I missed the posting of this home. Anyway, this home appears to be another example of a Barber designed home. And if the 1914 year of construction is to be believed, then it would be one of the latest known examples of Barber’s work, given that he died in early 1915. The layout very closely matches that of Barber’s published version, albeit a mirror image. So much to love in this gem. I hope the new owners care for it, as it is an important home both regionally and nationally.

    I “drove” a few of the streets in the Google street view. I love this neighborhood. Some big homes, some small homes, and some in between. Now I just wish it were in Waco, Texas, LoL!!!

    Zillow says this property sold last August. It didn’t take long, did it? At only $410,000 I can understand why. WoW!!!
