    Ah, my glorious South!

    Rarely do I see a million-dollar house that to me seems “worth it.” This one, however, has the architectural integrity, the history and the sheer beauty to justify every penny. It is spectacular.

    Wow…all I can say is WOW. I could walk through the front gate and never leave again…I’m pretty picky, but I can’t see a single thing that I don’t love.

    This is a special place with a unique architectural history. It’s a wonderful example of the adaptation of the temple form Greek Revival style to a remodel of earlier structures.

    The NRHP listing for the Campbell-Jordan house describes it quite well…

      WHAT a difference great photography makes; especially in a house this very, very, fine. Bravo agent! If I were a rich lady with great taste in Georgia, I’d make an offer – yesterday. 😉

    It’s not easy to have taste that good; even with GOBS of $$$.

    Wow.

    Gorgeous throughout. The exterior and galleries are especially thrilling. IMO – it does NOT get better than that. Whooooeee.

    The garden level rooms with restored brick, floors, and ceilings arrre stuuunnning. Good thing there is a little service kitchen; because if this place were mine, I’d use it instead of the other – because the other is just too beautiful to use! Heheheh. Only half kidding. 😉

    Okay, I musta missed this one first time around, and now it gets my vote for BEST basement EVER!!!!! You guys can all live upstairs, that glorious basement is MINE!

    I LOVE the juxtaposition of plaid curtains with the stained glass!!!! That’s AWESOME!

    And that work table with the gas cooktop? Pure genius. And then there’s all the other appliances cleverly put all over… not hidden, but unobtrustive nonetheless. Wow.

    Brick floor, massive beams, wooden ceiling, AND a freakin fireplace! The cabinets are gorgeous, I’m starting to hyperventilate!

    Other other part of the basement…. It’d be way too much fun to make it blend in with the glorious part, wouldn’t it?

    I know, I’m completely ignoring the rest of the house. *grin*

    The house is so close to the street in spite of being on a large piece of land. I’m wondering how things looked when it was first built. Maybe the street wasn’t there?

    I don’t believe I’ve ever seen marble baseboards before. GORGEOUS!

    I’ve seen marble baseboards once before in an apartment I lived in in the 80s. It was a hospital in the 1890s. My kitchen was the recovery room after surgery and the kitchen next door to me was the operating room. we shared a wall. The kitchen that was the operating room was quite small but had a a beautiful hexagon tile floor in great condition. my kitchen the recovery room had green and white tile floor still in great condition when i rented there in the 80s. we had beautiful woodwork around al the doors that had a flower type carving like a daisy instead of the usual bullseye.I found the schoolbooks of the doctors son in the attic.

    This has been for sale for some time. I know I have been looking at it for at least 10 years, if not much more. Washington, Ga. is a town full of rich history and many beautiful homes.
