Small Town Charmer: You Will Fall in Love With This 100-Year-Old Georgia Home
There isn’t much more quintessentially Southern than an old white house in a small town...or is that just us? If you feel the call to live life at a slower pace, then you need to check out this home. Tucked away in the southwest Georgia town of Thomasville, this circa-1916 house has all the charm you’d expect from a 100-year-old house, but after an extensive renovation by the current owners, there’s nothing dated about it. Currently listed by The Wright Group for $749,000, the opportunity to be the next owner of this 4,595-square-foot home, dubbed the Chisolm House, is up for the taking. From the landscaping to the fireplaces, no detail of this elegant home was overlooked. Our only question is: Can we keep the decor as-is?
With a bright yellow front door and deep porch, the house has quaint, small-town curb appeal down to a T. The front facade is rather simple architecturally, but the detailed molding along the roofline and stately columns give a hint of what’s inside.
Off the main entrance hall is the formal living room, a large, light-filled space centered around one of the home’s several original fireplaces. The original owner and home’s namesake was an executive at the local Bracey Lumber Company, which was responsible for some pretty high-profile jobs including the rotunda at the U.S. Capitol Building and millwork in the White House. So it’s no surprise the woodwork throughout the house is extensive, detailed, and well-maintained.
The addition of a modern, luxury kitchen by the current owners means this historic house is truly turn-key. High-end appliances, beautiful finishes, and walls of custom cabinets make the newest part of the home feel like it’s always been there.
The Chisolm House has 5 bedrooms, so there’s plenty of room for family and friends to come visit (or move in permanently). The two bedrooms downstairs each have a fireplace, while there’s an additional living room outside the upstairs bedrooms, making for the perfect playroom or teen escape.
The 3 bathrooms in this historic house also provide modern convenience in beautiful spaces that blend seamlessly with the rest of the house. This master bathroom is a large, serene retreat complete with this gorgeous clawfoot tub and marble tile and countertops.
It’s only fitting that a property with a home as beautiful as this one would be equally impressive on the outside. Imagine this lush, tree-lined driveway greeting you as you returned home every day.
And the outdoor beauty doesn’t stop there. A private oasis awaits outside the back door, with a salt water pool and patio area for entertaining or just solo unwinding. And when you’re only 20 minutes from the Florida state line, this is a space you can use nearly year-round.
