c. 1796 In-Town "Jewel"
Water Street Plantation Plain

The Benjamin Branham (Hodgson-Ebert/Gunter Home)
108 Water Street
HISTORIC Washington, Georgia Recently


One of the oldest, most interesting and unique homes in Historic Washington,Georgia is this charming c. 1796 Plain Style home that began its life on the corner of Jefferson Street and Robert Toombs Avenue making its way to its current .65 acre corner lot location during the ownership of the Benjamin Branham family.

It has been "home" to Educators ( several teachers & a private school even being conducted in the home at one time), Doctors (Dr. Horace Neeson, graduate of the Royal College of Physicians & Surgeons in Dublin Ireland) and Judges (Earl Norman of the Toombs Judicial Circuit) along with many other prominent Washington citizens ....

The home presents an unusual appearance because of a front ell, added to the original structure, that rises a story above the main body of the house and has only one upstairs room with a bath. Placed at the intersection of the two wings, the front door is not visible from the street. It is across these double doors, original iron brackets (still in the possession of the current owners ready for re-installation) held a heavy bar put there around 1850 "to keep the wandering Indians out." This home has certainly withstood the test of time...and carries a unique spirit of its own!

The approximately 2200 Square Feet home has been totally recently renovated , integrity intact. The home boasts, on the main level, a parlor, large dining/gathering room , quaint eat-in kitchen with FIREPLACE, (top of the line stainless appliances, custom cabinetry, subway tile, marble counter tops & more), cozy den (and/or 3rd bedroom), Master Bedroom and bath (Ceilings in main rooms approximately 10 ft). A spacious and inviting additional bedroom and lovely bath occupy the second floor.

There are working fireplaces in most EVERY ROOM with wonderful high mantles, paneled doors, original hardware, beautiful heart of pine floors, charming stair case and sections of broad plank walls and ceilings. Impressive authentic architectural features throughout!! (Custom Built Exterior Shutters on hand ready for installation)

The grounds have been marvelously landscaped...there are gorgeous Vintage Cabbage "Aloha" Roses, magnolia and pecan trees, boxwood shrubs along with other period plantings amid walkways, decorative walls, gas latern to greet guest and picket fences....All exemplifying southern hospitality at its best!
With all updated and modern amenities this "one of a kind" Historic property is sure to please and offers comfort and affordability. (Current property taxes $1,200 annually) . Nestled along one of the quiet, Historic District streets of Washington, Georgia it is within walking distance of the Historic Town Square, Museums, Library (oldest public library in Georgia), Restaurants and shopping!

One of the town's TRUE TREASURES....A real JEWEL!!
