Calling all Investors or anyone handy with a vision to bring this beauty back to its former glory! Sitting on 3 acres with the most incredible views, this is a fantastic opportunity! The property has the dwelling, a garage, and 2 barns. The home has great bones, but needs a lot of love after being vacant for many years. Once renovated this home could be worth $400-$500,000. There is also a well and a spring on the property, and it has electricity available.

    Looks like this is in Pickens County rather than Cherokee County (Ball Ground is a Cherokee County town but towns here are weird and sometimes stretch into other counties.)

    Sadly this will probably be torn down. This area doesn’t have the greatest track record of restoring old places. I’ll cross my fingers anyway. This area is quiet, a nice place to live if you are looking for a country home to restore.

      I just got back from visiting GA and was in Ball Ground for a moment while looking for Gibb Gardens. Cute town!!

        Yes it is! Used to be pretty dead but the last decade plus they’ve gotten rid of most/all of the rock shops (every building had rocks and junk in it, the man never opened them although if you were lucky and he was in a good mood and you asked to buy something, he may let you!) I’ve not yet been to Gibb Gardens but it’s on my to-do list one day!

  2. I agree, probably a demo… but the location is such that it may be awhile, I don’t know of anything going in there anytime soon. It’s a really nice area, though, closer to Nelson than Ball Ground, but I like Ball Ground.

    There are 2 notable houses in Ball Ground: the A.W. Roberts house (http://www.rockbarn.org/national-register-of-historic-places/a-w-roberts-house/) and the Sripling-Lovelady-Homiller house (https://www.tribuneledgernews.com/ledger/historic-stripling-lovelady-homiller-house-will-open-to-the-public-for-tour/article_ab0ec3a2-3ea8-11e8-a03f-13b629ff0b6a.html). An interesting video from the folks that did a lot of the work (https://www.mgmch.com/historic-home-restoration). I doubt either of these will ever come onto the market, but they’re there!

    Likewise, only a couple of notable historic houses in Canton, both on Marietta Street, unlikely to ever be for sale. It’s like that in our immediate area: all the small old farmhouses get bulldozed for subdivisions or a fast food joint; or they stay in the families that built and/or own them.

      The Stripling-Lovelady house has been my favorite since the first time I saw a peek of it through the trees as a teenager when we lived on Old Ball Ground Hwy just off downtown. It was not in the greatest condition, the internet was barely a thing so I couldn’t go online and look up the history. I only saw the back of the home, years later found out that the front had massive columns! The restoration of that home has been amazing and glad that it was saved.

      • Yeah, I drove my hot rod up their long dirt drive about a year ago, it’s up on a big hill. There was nobody around and I just looked at the exterior, but my youngest son was with me and didn’t feel right about looking… he was correct, of course. They were in the midst of constructing what looked like another much smaller house behind it. There’s a neighborhood on the hill beside it. It’s on a pretty good sized chunk of land.

        Stripling broke the bank building it, literally; I like to imagine that the porch would have been originally designed with a portico on both sides.

    My daughter just happened to be here when I was looking at this place. She said “Oh Mama! That place is awesome!” I gave her a hug and told her I was ever so glad she thought that way. She gave me a “Duh, Mom”

    Then we had to look at Craftsmans, her favorites.

    At first glance, I thought this was a log house. Still, it has such potential for the right person. I see such simple beauty here.

    For someone so inclined to tackle this project along with the asking price, it could be a nice property. It looks to really need a lot of work but if the structure is sound is doable. The roof appears to be new which is a plus and the surrounding area is appealing.
