Outstanding Queen Anne Victorian property
This 1887 Victorian house (known as the Ezell House) is set in half an acre of beautifully landscaped gardens with established heirloom plantings and a new formal boxwood parterre and patio. The house was constructed using Georgia heart pine and boasts original woodwork, stained glass and wonderful doors with Eastlake hardware.
The property sits on a corner lot within an historic residential district and is a 3 minute walk to downtown Eatonton. All bedrooms have lovely views and the master is very grand. The two smaller bedrooms can be used for family, guests or as a study and dressing room. All full baths have clawfoot tubs and appropriate tile. The living and sleeping rooms in the main house have working log fireplaces with gas starters. The kitchen has gas logs and a Viking gas range. The large wrap around front porch is a favorite outdoor living space for drinks, tea and chats with the neighbors. There is a balcony upstairs, a deck off the kitchen and a brick patio under the kitchen for those hot summer days.
Most of the period furniture is for sale; to be negotiated. The self-contained apartment at the side of the house can be rented out or used as a studio, 6th bedroom, in-law suite, or servants quarters. It has it's own kitchen, bathroom, and small living room. You have to see this property first hand to appreciate its beauty and charm.
