      Hard to pick which one I like best, except the price on this one is cheaper than the link one, I love the stairs in this one too, would make lovely pictures for a bride to come down those stairs.

    What a lovely home this is. Furnished and decoratied it would shine. Unfortunatly the 4 lane street is a negative for some people, including myself. Having lived on a relative busy street, the noise and pollution are major factors.

    This house is a jewel box! The entry and powder rooms are a designer’s dream. Macon seems to have some very pretty homes. I’d have no trouble with the four lane road that runs along side; it appears residential, not commercial.

    That has to be the fanciest telephone niche I’ve ever seen, so far!

    I could not love this house more!!!! I love every speck of it (OK, except for the kitchen, but it’s not too bad.) The bathrooms are to die for!!! If only I could move to Georgia!! Inside and out, this is a great, great house!!!

    Thanks Kelly for this lovely house tour. Do you or anyone in this forum know whether there are products to remove pet stains on wood floors? If not, I presume the only alternative is to stain the wood to the color/hue of the pet stain.

      Gordonr, can you elaborate on the “area rug” treatment? I had the same thought as Sage when I saw the floors in this stunning house. Please let us in on the secret!! Thanks! Gina S.

        The “area rug” treatment…too funny! Throw an area rug over the spot and voila! Spot gone! I believe the only way to remove is to refinish the floors….sand them down and refinish. If you try to stain over a spot you run the risk of pets marking over the spot. Dogs can immediately find a spot and make it theirs.

        Lovely house!

          We bought a craftsman with lots of pet stains under the carpet. Tried to sand down but it got to the point where it was going to affect the integrity of the boards. We stained them dark AND used area rugs. Unless there’s a plastic barrier under carpet, people may clean the carpet pet stains but it’s already soaked into the backing, pad and wood and that causes deep stains.

          To JBilly and DianeEG – I guess I was just hoping there was some miracle “cure” that I’d never heard of before, so thanks for your responses! I got a good laugh, though!

            You can try bleaching the offending area! Sand the varnish off, get a towel soaked in a bleach solution and place it over the stain.

    Charming, lovely home. With the exception of the kitchen I would change very little. It must have been a real showplace in its day.

    Our architect lives in an older restored home just across the 4 lane (Vineville) from this home. It’s an area of wonderful old large character homes. The 4 lane can be very busy so whoever buys this home would want to install some sort of buffer along that side of the property to keep the street noise down. Beautiful home.

    I love this house. It’s hard to beat the “bang for the buck” that one can get with traditional houses of the 1920’s-1950’s. The materials used are of very high quality. My only small complaint with this one is the over use of the “picture frame” molding in almost every room. I like it ok maybe in one or two rooms. The paint colors used in this house are very nice, and I just believe that those particular moldings detract more than they add. Great house! Also love the one across the street, although not enough yard.

    In regard to pet stains on wood-had very good luck with our greek revival that had severe staining throughout many years. We had to sand but used product for pet stains/odor that uses a natural and benefitial enzyme producing bacteria. The living bacteria feed on the old stains from pets and then they go away. No more odor and lightened the stained (after 4 applications ) area enough to make it not as noticable but a definite improvement. Best costs a bit more but more concentrated. Hey it worth a try-our pets didnt notice the areas at all.

    Utterly beautiful home!!!
    Around every corner is some delightful surprise!!! The attention to detail is remarkable!! The kitchen is the only drab spot, but not irredeemable. The busy streets might require the skills of a serious landscape designer to buffer the noise and filter the pollution.
