Standing majestically and proud along Historic Washington's grand
avenue, the Wilheit-Brown-Wagner home takes it's place once again
as one of the "finest homes" and as one of the "showplaces of Washington
and Northeast Georgia" as so described by many when it was originally
built in 1915 by once Mayor of Washington, Kimball Aubrey Wilheit
who employed the services of James Benjamin Chafin as architect.
Interestingly, the house cost $50,000 to build in that day...
It is complete with Historic Town Square, Museums, Shops & restaurants all within walking distance of the home. Original architectural features such as lovely fanlights above entry doors and above the large front windows, wide sidelights, high coffer ceilings and the many other details enhance the beauty of this gracious home! The welcoming grand center staircase in the entry hall rising to a landing then splitting to ascend to the second floor from each side is another one of its very special, very beautiful features!
Gorgeous glistening maple floors, stunning crystal chandeliers , lovely sconces and beautiful mantled fireplaces add warmth and an inviting glow to the home as large over sized windows (totally reworked) bathe the home in natural light...
Upon entering the home, there are spacious parlors to the left and the right off the central hall, a beautiful library with built-in shelving , formal dining room , bedroom/sitting room, sun room, full bath and spectacular kitchen! The dream kitchen has mud room, large pantry, lots & lots of granite counter space, beautiful custom cabinets, fabulous center gas range & other top of the line appliances, stained glass light fixtures, plus a charming & cozy breakfast area in front of the original fireplace.
Upstairs this grand southern home boast four (4) bright & spacious bedrooms with 3 full baths. Accessed from the common area of the center hall, each bedroom suite is unique and custom designed from the large tiled showers to footed tubs & beautiful vanities, they are sure to please and inviting to you and your guest! Outside, one is just as impressed as the home sits on just under an acre lot (.87) within the City with the majority of the land lying to the rear of the home and can be enjoyed from the back deck.
The grounds run deep and offer much privacy with large mature hardwoods. The current owners have diligently and tirelessly worked to bring this Historic jewel back to the former glory it once enjoyed while adding top of the line modern day amenities adapting the home for today's lifestyle of comfortable, enjoyable living; maintaining its historic integrity and olde time grandeur.
At dusk, as the sun slowly sets, the home takes on a seemingly
magical beauty of grandness that one has to almost experience first
hand to fully understand.... Perhaps its the reflective light dancing
off the multi-paned windows & crystal chandeliers or could it possibly
be the imprints of the happy spirits of those that graced this magnificent
home with their presence, in the past, entertaining & dwelling in
the company of beloved family & friends.... One can only speculate,
however, the light hearted enchantment that immediately fills the
atmosphere is undeniable :)
