82 Acre Southern Grandeur
Historic c.1891 Home
LAKE...Nostalgic BARN...Rolling Pastureland...Woodlands
4162 Skull Shoals Road HISTORIC Washington, Georgia

Graciously Southern, steeped in the charm and grandeur of a by-gone era, this amazing property boasting 82.98 gentle rolling acres along with spacious two-story c.1891 Historic home and period out buildings is a true treasure! One very hard to find in this current day and time especially with stocked LAKE....Fenced & Cross fenced Pastures...Woodlands and a magnificent ol' time red-roofed BARN!

The near 5000 sf home is all and more that one could possibly anticipate. Sitting atop its knoll, porches adorned with millwork wrapping around all but one side of the rear wing, tall walk out windows bringing memories of ladies and gents meandering in and out the home through open windows on to porches shaded by extended branches of ancient oaks... The home still stands proud today as it has since 1891 reigning and watching over the land.

It is a basic four over four with tall ceilings and wide center halls up and down. A large wing addition provides great room/den, master bedroom, bath and large laundry room. There is a total of 5 very spacious bedrooms and three baths with the master bedroom being on the main level. 4 additional bedrooms and two baths (connecting bedrooms) are on the second level and large easy accessable storage areas.

The home glows with warmth from glistening random width heart of pine floors throughout, tongue & groove wood ceilings and gorgeous wood moldings. Beautiful wood graining, signed and dated Oct. 12th 1897 by the "Preacher Wood Grainer". There are transoms above tall doors with red stained glass as well as a lovely front door welcoming visitors with dancing light from multi colored stained glass. Upon entering the home one is impressed by the beautiful spindled staircase, strong sturdy newel post at the base then gracefully ascending to the second floor.

There are mantled fireplaces in most every room. Nine(9), most with exposed brick to the ceiling enhancing the beauty of the home. The kitchen/ great room is stunning with huge wood beams, massive brick accent walls, recessed lighting and a bit of rustic atmosphere with walls of wood in the living area and a functioning wood stove on the brick hearth. Large paned original windows bring in natural light and a french door leads to the side porch. There is also a cozy comfortable screened porch off this area as well.

Within the immediate picket fence outside are lovely brick walks, brick lined flower beds, a gazebo and the foundation for one to create genuine southern grounds and gardens. Outbuildings include a garage, small barn, well house, gazebo and best of all an absolutely wonderful huge old time red-roofed barn with massive timbers and center drive through aisle. Strategically located overlooking the contour of the land.

There is also an additional building site from previous structure with water, septic and electric available. Excellent location for future Guest house/ caretaker or family housing.

The LAND is spectacular with rolling pastures (fenced and cross fenced) and scattered patches of woodlands that fall gently to the lake's edge. Beautiful STOCKED LAKE (creek and spring fed) complete with quaint bridge to small island and dock ! Lone oaks dot the countryside as animals graze contently.

Most all renovations and modern amenities have been completed (central heating and air, roof, plumbing, wiring) with some final touches and design being left for the new owners to complete to their taste and desires.

THIS is a rare and wonderful find....Historic home with acreage for horses, cattle, hay or just pure privacy. Peaceful country atmosphere a short distance (7 miles) outside of Historic Washington, Ga. Easy access to Athens, Ga. (40 miles) and Greensboro, Ga. (Lake Oconee area)


You WILL NOT be disappointed. Home offers much potential & possibilities!
