    I hope this will go to someone that wants to use it for a house or save it for business use and not be torn down for development but looking at the surrounding area, not holding my breath.

    Not really my style but it looks like a good house maybe needing only cosmetics. Nice baths!
    I like this kind of property – a large lot tucked away for privacy but convenient to town. Quite a lot of real estate for the price.

    I see what you mean about the location, Kelly. Developers are bound to be drooling over almost 8 acres for 250K. Not the most likely area for a rehab. Too bad, because they built them well with excellent materials in the 30s & it’s a pleasant house.

    How could this gorgeous home be vacant all these years? I love this elegant home.

    This lovely house?

    Plus 8 acres?

    For $250K?

    And “tucked amid ancient cedars, tea olive & magnolia”?

    I would not even notice the commercial stuff nearby.

    I thought that the mantels (one with coal grate!) and the plaster medallion in the first room shown seemed like fairly elaborate finishes for a 1930s colonial revival house. My impression was that interior finishes were getting rather stripped down/perfunctory in “colonial” houses by that decade.

    Also, in reviewing the pics again, I see that the house even has a porte cochere! Definitely a house with an “old soul” for the date of its construction…

    Got to see the house today. First, it is a very nice house and seems rock solid. Tall ceilinged first floor with the master on the main. Nice rooms and period bathrooms. The wallpaper in the hallway is amazingly beautiful. The land that it is on is really nice with pecan and magnolia trees except that it is on a busy street across from an Ingles. The house is set pretty far back from the street but there is still road noise on the property. There is a nice old brick garage on the property as well. The drawbacks are the ceiling in the dinning room is about to come down from a water leak, the wiring has no ground wire and needs replacing. The realtor said that the plumbing probably needs work as well. The kitchen needs replacing but you might be able to keep the carcass and replace just the doors. Someone stole the AC unit from the back of the house and the copper gutters so they need replacing. The thing that was a deal breaker for me was there was standing water under the house (been there, done that) and Elberton seems to be a city on the decline. The real estate agent said that Elberton’s Granite industry he believes will always have the city surviving no matter the economy. You could flip a coin to see whether the house will be worth more or less at the end of 10 years but the fact is, it is a beautiful solid home that needs about $50,000 to be ok to live in and that is being frugal.

    Posted 2015, doing some post maintenance so moved this to the front page. Most of the photos you see are from 2015 with the exception of the first photo I believe is within the last two years.

    I can’t believe this is still for sale. I think it’s a sign. I have to tell the family we’re moving to GA now . . .
