The "Old Edward's
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.
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.
Excellent location approximately 15 miles east of Athens, Ga. (Home to University of Georgia) , approximately 5 miles from charming Watkinsville, Georgia and 25 miles to Historic Washington, Ga.
