This raised cottage, Greek revival style home originally built in 1841 is located on +/- 6.74 acres on Byron Plantation Road.

The home was moved from Cuthbert, Georgia in 1990 and owners were able to save and use most all the original materials including the 6 large octagon shaped columns, diamond shaped transom and entablature over each side of the front door.

The driveway is lined with beautiful pecan trees. 

When you enter the foyer, you will see the heart pine floors and wanes coating, the 12-foot ceilings, and the hand blown glass windows.

The library is to the right and has heart pine boards from the original dwelling and a handsome heart pine mantle with a gas fireplace (one of the 4 fireplaces in the home).

The dining room is to the left with four large 8-foot windows, wood burning fireplace, Italian teardrop chandelier and a working dumbwaiter for transporting food from the kitchen below.

The rear stair case is tucked away allowing for the main hall to double as an additional living space. The lower level of the home was built on site with reclaimed materials to complement the historic details of the upper level and is similar to many raised low country style or Louisiana Cottage style homes with double brick walls and a brick floor.

Overhead you will note the 10-foot ceilings with rough cut heart pine and hand-hewn beams. 

Outside is a newly added covered back patio with a large wood burning outdoor fireplace. There is large yard, a well/storage house and amazing 24 x20 wood shop and additional storage.

The property is listed for $675,000 and is located at:
