A home like this comes available once in a lifetime! Built in 1883, this spacious 2-story Italianate beauty is steeped in history and updated for modern comfort. Built by a retired Confederate army captain, it's an integral part of Henry County's local legends; often referred to one of the Jesse James houses, local lore tells of a hidden tunnel, a hiding place in the attic, of horses "ridden hard and put away wet" when the posse arrived, and more. This home sits on 20.4 acres of land and has 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, a 2 car garage plus additional parking, and many unique nooks and crannies. These include a butler's stairway and under stair storage, a full attic with its own stairway, and rooftop access to a widow's walk (great place to watch the annual fireworks!) Original wood floors and windows, interior trim and transoms, and hand painted, original fireplace mantles and surrounds have been preserved, along with doors and hardware, some original wood graining, and the original walnut newel post and main stairway. Most restorations have been done to retain the home's historic integrity while creating the comfort and easy maintenance of more modern dwellings.
