Historic Cherry Cottage c. 1818
204 Water Street / 1.10 Acre Lot

Located along one of Washington Georgia's beautiful side streets amid other lovely historic homes and within walking distance of the Town Square, Restaurants, Shops, Library & Museums is Cherry Cottage built c. 1818 by John Burch, Governor John Clark's secretary . Other accounts say the older portion of the home was built by Constantine Church c.1819 with Henry Terrell purchasing later and making extensive alterations. Many distinguished Washington families have inhabited this home including the Barnetts (Miss E.M and E.L Barnett who gave it the name Cherry Cottage because of the Cherry trees that once grew in the front yard), and W Meriwether Hill who purchased it in 1884 and held open houses each year to share the harvest from his nearby farm with family & friends. The Schmidt family gave it to the City of Washington in 1966 to be used by the Garden Club. Mrs. Schmidt being the former Euginea Hill.

There are 4 Bedrooms, 2 full baths, front parlor living room that spans the entire width of the home boasting 2 fireplaces and two front doors. There is a library and formal dining both with fireplaces, a keeping room and spacious kitchen. The rooms are well proportioned with high mantles on fireplaces, random wideth pine floors, original doors and hardware to name just a few of the wonderful architecture features of this home. Outside is the old well still intact and the smoke house! A graciously southern front porch with millwork adorns the front of the home.

The home is RENOVATION READY with much completed within the last year including new plumbing, new HVAC downstairs, some electrical, interior and exterior freshly painted and much much more! Pick up where this owner left off to transform an amazing 3,412 square feet on a gorgeous 1.10 acre lot into an AWESOME historic TREASURE & HOME! Protected by GEORGIA TRUST easements.
