Description

1830s Historic Victorian home in the heart of Senoia, which was recently named, The Most Beautiful Small Town in GA, by House Beautiful Magazine. Just a 3 minute walk from this home, are several local restaurants & shops that downtown Senoia has to offer. Don't feel like walking? Take your golf cart for a spin on the cart paths to check out one of the parks, or hang out at the lake and feed the ducks. Located 25 miles from Atlanta, 15 miles from Trilith Studios & almost 200 years back in time. Several local renowned families have owned this artful manor in its history. Most recently, it was adoringly owned by the lovely & beloved Senoia-devotee, Gail Downs (of Gails Antiques on Main Street). The Downs Estate presents this cherished home for sale to the stewardship and embrace of its next worthy caretaker. This iconic homestead was grandly built, circa 1830s in the Federalist style by local Master Builder, Moses A. Shields. It was cherished by his family for a century. By the 1890s, it was masterfully transitioned into the glorious Victorian style it is today. While extensive & thoughtful improvements have been made in recent decades, the epic character of this celebrated Senoia home has been lovingly honored. From the moment you walk through the white picket gate, youll be surrounded by ornate details from a time gone by. The brick walkway leads to the Wrap-Around Covered Front Porch, complete w/ Gingerbread Trim, Spindled Railing & an Attached Gazebo w/ Porch Swing. Upon entering, youll be enamored, as you wander, room to room, w/ the breathtaking historical ambiance of this showplace such as the Beadboard Foyer Ceiling & intricate decorative trim, which are likely original. Left of the Foyer is the Owners Bedroom featuring 3 Large Windows, one of which is Floor Length, all w/ Plantation Shutters. The Owner's BR flows into the Sitting Room (which could be transformed into an enormous walk-through closet). From there is the charmingly updated Owners Bathroom w/ Tiled Shower, Oversized Jetted Tub & 2 Pedestal Sinks. To the right of the Foyer is the definition of a southern Great Room w/ Fireplace. It is easy to imagine the ladies & gentleman who once gathered there. The elegant front Parlor was the Senoia Dentist Office in the 1890s & features a Stained-Glass Transom in Bay Window & a turn of the century Victorian Stamped Frieze Applique Ceiling suspending an Elizabethan Pendant Light. The Great Room flows into the stately Dining Room w/ lovey Bay Window then to the expansive Vaulted Kitchen w/ Rough-Sawn Exposed Beams & open to the Raised Keeping Room. Large Laundry/Mudroom w/ Cabinets, access to Owners Suite & features a Built-in, Fold-Down Ironing Board & Dual-Sided Towel Pantry (opens to Bathroom) From the Mudroom, is access to the Attached 2 Car Side-Entry Garage w/ Storage Closet, Workshop Room & Stamped Tin Ceiling. Enormous Bonus Room over Garage. Original Heart-Pine Floors have been preserved (upstairs & most of downstairs). Likely original Solid Wood Doors, Boldly-Cased & Corniced Door Frames, generous baseboards & trim throughout. Wainscoted Walls & Ceilings. Wired for Full-House Intercom. Likely original Poured Glass Window Panes (Wavy Glass w/ Bubbles). 2 Wooden Blinds & Plantation Shutters on most windows. Grand Staircase w/ massive Banisters rises to open central landing that could be a sunlit Reading Nook. Charming Guest Bathroom w/ 2 Pedestal Sinks & Clawfoot Tub, 4 large Bedrooms, 2 w/ Closets & 2 w/out Closets. One Upstairs Bedroom has a Fireplace. Level & Wood-Slat Fenced park like backyard w/ Deck & an approx. 10x15 Frame-Built Shed/Workshop w/ Electricity. Architectural Shingle & Metal Roofs. This cherished Senoia landmark home is featured as Home #7 in the Senoia Historic Homes Driving Tour. *USE SHOWINGTIME*
