Your chance to own a piece of history. 1906 charm with 2022 amenities. The Robert Burns Homeplace was home to the Burns family when Mr. Burns was appointed Assistant Post Master General for Hart County in 1916. Enter across the rocking chair porch into the large foyer with Heart of pine floors & a corner fireplace. The wainscot is extra high with a plate rail top. The coffered ceiling with a molding medallion in the center is sure to impress. To the left, the flooring flows into what is currently being used as a guest bedroom but would also make a wonderful living room or parlor with a second fireplace. Off the right of the entrance is the owner’s suite. Double closets with a window seat between make for the perfect place for curling up with a good book & your morning coffee. The ensuite has been redone to match the federal style of the home with bead board, double sinks, a large walk-in tile shower, water closet & fireplace. Straight through the foyer is a sitting area with bead board accents & direct access to the backyard. To the left of this room are a formal dining room with deep coffered ceiling, more hardwood floors, and a 4th fireplace. French doors connect a bright and airy living room to the dining room. From here a staircase leads up to a guest suite with charming gables. A full bath and second HVAC unit for this room make it the perfect retreat for your guest. There is access from the bath to a walk-in attic for extra storage. Back on the main floor to the rear of the dining room is a gracious kitchen with solid surface countertops, custom cabinets, and stainless steel appliances including a gas range. Adjacent to the kitchen into a large mudroom/laundry area with a built-in ironing board. 2 steps down is a 4 seasons room overlooking the backyard. The amount of trim work, molding, and wood floors in this home are truly amazing. In the back yard is a glassed-in shed perfect for a greenhouse or she shed, a large barn, 2 more outbuildings, and a 2 car carport. The backyard is amazingly flat with gardens around the edge. It would be the perfect place for a formal garden with a gazebo or a pool for those hot summer days. Make this historic home part of your history.
