Divided by the very seldom used county maintained dirt road, are 19.682 acres on the pastureland /stable-barn side of the road across from the Historic house and 36.778 acres on the house side and pond side with pastures, paddocks and woodlands. Very privately situated, the farm is a short distance from Greensboro, Georgia (Woodville/Union Point area) and easy driving /accessibility to Athens, Georgia.

The walls are wide horizontal pine boards and plaster. The floors are random width heart of pine. Double doors open into the front entry with original early staircase ascending to second floor.
