    1901 Folk Victorian
    Chestatee, GA

    Build date given is 1910 but looks way older. Maybe someone can find some info on it. 🙂

      Either the Sumter County historical Society or the former owner’s (Gladys DeLoach) daughters can probably shed light on the age and significance of the home. It was obviously a point of pride with her according to her obituary.

    I like it. At that price you could retire here. The store out back could be a business or turned into a garage. Hay maybe a business that is a garage. Americus is a long way from a big city. You could drive to Plains and go to church with Jimmy Carter. Jimmy often teaches a bible study. Highly recommended.

    Americus has lots of Victorian homes and a very nice downtown area. Warm winters and hot summers. This home is near downtown in a mixed commercial/residential area. Looks like the house has good bones and is a great value.

    Good thing the price is very low because it’s going to take a whole lot of loot to un-screw up the interior.

    I had to go back and look at the exterior pictures because the interior seems much more recent in some of the rooms. As best as I can determine, the house itself appears to be a mid-19th century home, maybe even Antebellum in age but the windows appear to have been replaced in recent times. Looks like one of the old mantels is about to be removed but hopefully can be put back where it was for a century and a half. For those who are not particularly purists about styles and age, the recent modernization efforts might help monetarily because some of the more recent features might be worth keeping for modern living. (such as closets as the lack of closets is the bane of many old houses) Given the low asking price, the house looks close to completion although if someone wanted to take it all the way back to the original period, that bargain might evaporate in a full restoration. Interesting house, overall. (and apparently prominent in local history as well)

      I agree that this was likely constructed sometime in the decade preceding the Civil War. I think there’s a Greek Revival style house hiding underneath that later Victorian double porch. The exterior stair indicates this was likely converted to multifamily use at one point. For the price of a Toyota Camry, one could own a beautiful house with history in a charming small GA town. My wife and I spent a week at the beautiful Classical Revival 1906 Pathway Inn in Americus many years ago and really liked the town.

    I looked at this house today. The build date posted on a placard is 1858. The location is great, but the condition is much worst than the pictures show. The little store on the side is attached to the house but it needs to be bulldozed because the roof has completely caved in and the rest is rotten. I could see that the wall of the house with the windows where the store is attached is still all there, which is a good thing. I could also see water damage from on the first floor from a leaking roof. The house is still savable, but time is running out.
