One of the oldest homes in Greensboro, The Johnston-Torbert house was built only a few years after the town was first laid out. This Georgian-style home adorned with a prominent Greek Revival-style front porch, is a nod to the impressive architecture of the early 19th century. All of the exterior walls and most of the interior ones are solid brick measuring nearly two feet thick. The mantles throughout the home are handcrafted and no two are alike. The sizeable kitchen allows ample space for preparing meals or casual dinner parties. Take your afternoon tea on the screened-in porch, and venture towards the back of the lot to the old log cookhouse. Stroll to downtown and grab lunch at Ruan Thai, a coffee at The Stable, or hop across the street to the Egyptian bakery. Sold furnished and currently operating as a bed and breakfast, this is a rare chance to own one of the state of Alabama's oldest homes.
