    My beloved Dahlonega! This area is one we looked into buying before our current old house but decided against it due to the internet options available. It is a GORGEOUS part of Dahlonega. When we want to drive through the country this is one of the areas we start with. If you aren’t worried about super duper fast internet (although you may have options since I last checked) and want a fixer in the country, RUN to see this one! Heck, I’ll come with ya! lol

      Hey just wanted to say that we lived in Dahlonega for 2 years (2014-2016) just down the road from the Army Ranger camp (very isolated) and we had really good internet service with Windstream believe it or not:) We opted to pay a little more for faster speeds and it was excellent. Our only source of entertainment was Netflix which streamed without issues. Loved our time there!

        I think you are the first person I’ve ever read that gave a good review on Windstream! They are the only reason we did not look at houses unless it was on the fiber line in select areas of Lumpkin. Glad to hear Windstream may not be bad for everyone at least. This home is a bit rural so maybe there’s less chance of issues.

        We have 50Mb service from Windstream. I absolutely hate them. I originally had 6Mb service with them, ever since upgrading I have had continuous problems. Every few days I end up having to do a hard reset on the modem and then completely reconfigure it. The worst part is, they can’t figure out what the problem is. If this house has service through Windstream I would definitely put that down in the negative column of my positives and negatives list, no matter what the speed.

    Oh, two build dates for this one! 1865 and 1898. I really don’t know which it could be.

      I think the 1860’s (or even slightly older) would be the closest match. As you know, Dahlonega owed its original prosperity to an early 19th century gold rush, the first in the U.S. Of course, agriculture was also important and I think it likely this began as a farmhouse. The log outbuilding perhaps could have been the original dwelling in the early days. The surrounding views look pictureque

    My parents live in Dahlonega (and I grew up there from age 7) It really is a nice place. I want to go and see this house!

      That’s cool! We live in the second county down from Lumpkin County. I’m crossing my fingers an OHD’er (or like minded) gets their hands on this home. 🙂

        Gah! I love this. Maybe GA is where we will land, lol. The price is unbelievable.

        As of 10pm last night, our house is under contract AGAIN. I’m not holding my breath.

    The log smoke house looks small in the photos but it looks huge in the street view. We’re headed that way on vacation (from Clearwater, FL) in a couple of weeks. Maybe we’ll get to stop by and take a look.

    My husband and I lived in Dahlonega for several years (until 2001). If you have never been there you really should go if you get a chance. I think it is one of the most beautiful places in the US.

    Can I just say thanks for mentioning internet connections in remote places. We are considering a move to a smaller, more rural area and this is one of our primary concerns, mostly because of telecommuting issues. I wish there was a consistent way to get this information when one if considering a home in a rural area. Great house, by the way, and I love the Dahlonega area as well.

      I use to use https://www.broadbandmap.gov/ but it hasn’t updated since 2014. I had to do a bit of research to find info on the fiber internet that’s available in this particular county but it’s not everywhere yet. I think if high speed internet reached some of the more rural areas you would see home based business able to relocate anywhere.

    We discovered Woody Gap school a few years ago on our way from Blue Ridge to Dahlonega. I believe it’s on 60 in Suches area. K-12 all housed in one school. Low student to teacher ratio. Just sounds heavenly.

      I’ve been down that road a few times but never even noticed it! Cute school, that’s the kind of school I’d want to go to! lol

    This is an area we have considered to expand Aloha Farm too. Is it really that much trouble to get internet? My husband works from home and I also do so much via the computer advocating for those with Lyme we have to have it. I would be sad to have to let this area go from our list.

    I might be jaded living here in Maine but isn’t this a bit pricey for this house? I mean I would love to renovate it, keeping the charm of it but last time it had anything done to it was in 1955. I am thinking all electric, plumbing, heating and cooling needs to be done. Then the bathrooms, the kitchen before you do anything else. It is a charmer though.

    Ladies and Gents,

    I have never been to Dahlonega. Am I the only person here who has never been there? Now considering how small it is, and how many of you know it, it must be the crossroads of the world.

    The listing photographs of this house are very interesting. They’re geared toward someone who is interested in practicle things like dishwashers and toilets, not staircases, and fireplaces v.s. stovepipe thimbles.

    This home is compact. Is it possible that the wall in photographs 20 and 21 is new, added to create an additional usable space, perhaps another bedroom?

    The chimneys might be large enough for fireplaces, but my vote is for stoves. Not that stoves are a bad idea. It opens the door to all sorts of interesting antiques with practical modern uses, and they’re more efficient as an heat source than fireplaces. In addition, they can be used to melt snow in winter when the power goes out, perhaps because there has been an ice storm, and travel is very dangerous.

    It’s possible that Dahlonega’s relatively mild winters, in the high 20’s, ice storms are rare. I have been in that situation on the Maine coast, where my Franklin Stove saw me through two weeks of an ice storm, with no power, and travel was dangerous. In fact I’ve been in an ice storm in Virginia, in an otherwise mild winter, so a stove is still a nice addition.

    Still and all, a handsome home.

      LOL Well it’s such an awesome town I’m not surprised so many have lived or been there. 🙂

      The wall is weird, the photos didn’t help me figure out the layout of the house to understand what was going on.

      Snow, not such a big issue where you’re snowed in more than a day or two as it usually clears up just as fast as it arrived. The last time we were snowed in a week was a few years ago but it doesn’t happen like that too often. But when it does happen it would be good to either have a wood stove ready or propane heat or generator. This home is off one of the more traveled roads so power being out that long wouldn’t be an issue. The last blizzard Georgia had where we went a week or two without power was in 1993 (it’s so rare we still talk about it like it happened yesterday!)

    Our rural home had all the charm of dial up internet service (sad humor.) Little did we know the small rural telephone company was installing fiber optics on ALL their lines. We now have better service than most cities and service techs who are local, caring and prompt. It pays to ask the locals what services are planned for the future. We got lucky on that. Still have to stand on the front porch to talk on our cell phones – maybe soon…

    Always have a chuckle at Georgia folks winter time stories: My family in Albany “OMG it’s freezing and a blizzard and everything is closed down and we’re starving.” My Illinois family “We have a heat wave, it hit 32 and we only have six inches of snow – got the kids to school and headed to work.”

      Most Georgia towns don’t have the snow plows and trucks northern states do nor are most prepared for really bad winter weather. Also our temps tend to be in the space where it’s usually ice or snow that turns into ice. For those that laugh at us, spend a few good winters here (because it doesn’t happen every winter) and you’ll see what it’s like. 🙂

    Kelly’s exactly right. The ice storm of early 2010 was a particularly bad one. The worst of it was south of Atlanta where we live. We had to be at a funeral three hours from our house that day. The only reason we made it was that I had a large 4×4 dually with knobby tires. Even in 4 high and going slow it was difficult driving. The only other cars I saw out that morning were in the ditch off the road.

    Looks a though there was a stove in the ell off the back of the house. I am another person who had never heard of this area.

    We drove by this home on the way to the antique store this weekend (we are going back next weekend for a torchiere lamp!) I’ve seen this home in person driving by before and it didn’t click when I posted.

    I didn’t realize this was on the main road between Dahlonega and Murrayville. It’s a decently busy road on weekends and fall when people are driving to the mountains. Still a good area, Home Depot right down the street even (we stopped there too.) A few local restaurants, Walmart nearby; major shopping in Dawsonville (it’s where we shop!) I’m crossing my fingers the next owners don’t vinylize and new windowize?…it. In person, it feels like it sits nearer to the road than the listing pics and even Google Street View show.
