Rise to the Challenge: Antebellum Greek Revival RENOVATION READY!
324 W Robert Toombs Avenue
1.69 Acre Corner Lot Commercial or Residential Includes Guest Cottage(2 BR/1 B)


With an over abundance of POTENTIAL & POSSIBILITIES, this home is a classic ante-bellum two-story in the Greek Revival style "RENOVATION READY" with the oldest section built around 1840 constructed in the then popular two-over-two style ( so the story is told) to be later infused with lovely Victorian features. During the 1840's and 1850's the house was part of the estate of Rev. Jesse Mercer, well known Baptist minister in the area and c. 1870's Nicolas Wiley was responsible for major additions and alterations , doubling the size of the house and adding the four majestic Corinthian columns and full front facade. The Corinthian column tops were all hand-sculptured masonry made by two different artisans of that era.

The property transferred to Thomas Heard in the 1880's then to Mrs. Mary Callen in 1890 who added the Victorian wooden ceilings and wainscoting present on the first floor. She also had the house lowered (originally on a raised basement ) adding plumbing and electricity. It remained in her estate, evolving with each descendant, for well over a half century when the Edwin Anderson family became owners the following two decades...The current Owner has been in possession of the property for the past three decades and the Estate anxiously awaits a new owner ready to rise to the challenge, renovate and breathe new life back into this awesome and amazing home! 

The home with its 3,344 square feet and spacious rooms sits on a 1.69 corner lot. The property can be used as a COMMERCIAL or RESIDENTIAL property. The home has center halls on the main and upper level. Wonderful Victorian architectural accents as well as Victorian wooden ceilings & wainscoting on the lower level. Wood floors throughout most of the house, mantled fireplaces, primary bedroom & bath on main level possible and a unique curved staircase ascends to second level wide center hall, 3 bedrooms off the hallway emptying out to the second floor balcony overlooking gorgeous Corinthian Columns.
