The "Old Edward's Plantation"
Located 15 miles out of Athens, Ga Oglethorpe County

Boasting over 6,500 square feet this gracious Southern home still stands proudly... Situated on what remains of the original Edward-Byrd plantation lands. The sprawling 25 acres,with board fencing following its old plantation roads, consist predominantly of pasture lands and hay fields along with patches of woodlands . Numerous barns (including STABLES) and miscellaneous outbuildings dot its countryside. There are clusters of pecan trees providing shade amid gentle rolling grasslands, a small vineyard, and superb views from the balconies and porches as well as from the many rooms inside this historic treasure! One is instantly taken back to a by-gone era.

The front portion of the home is basically a four over four with wide center hall on both the first and second level. A beautiful newel post and spindles adorn the staircase as it rises to a landing before reaching the second level. Floors are gorgeous random width heart of pine. Front windows extend from floor to ceiling. There are fireplaces in most every room!

A back cross hallway with lovely stenciled pine floors adjoins the rear portion of the home and also hosts a unique back staircase which leads one to a wonderful upstairs Master Bedroom suite with luxurious bath, walk-in closets, plus custom built cabinetry of armoirs, wet bar , serving area and a spacious balcony overlooking the grounds...great for sipping your mint julep as the sun sets.

The downstairs rear portion hosts a large center banquet room to be used as you desire with fireplace and can be entered from the rear porches and portico. The surrounding side rooms provide an amazingly gorgeous kitchen with farm sink below windows looking out onto breakfast deck and gazebo, stunning counter tops, stenciled pine floors, custom cabinets perfectly designed for a historic home of this statue and continued on into the butlers pantry! There is a small office adjoining a spacious sun room which overlooks the formal garden courtyard with its brick walkways and walls.
The home has been lovingly restored with only a small percentage of work needing completion. The home presently is used as 5 bedrooms with 3 baths. Formal parlor and formal dining and lots of other spaces for use as one desires. At one time the property was used for Special Events (weddings, etc) thus the beautifully designed outdoor bathroom facilities, perfect should one desire this venue.
