    Property Details

    Arguably one of the most beautiful, historic homes in Madison County, the Whitehead House features 2,500 square feet, three bedrooms, three full baths, two living spaces, a bonus room, a covered front porch and huge basement all on 1.88 sprawling acres. Completely renovated beginning in 2011, this house was modernized for today's distinguished owner while painstakingly restoring all historic elements to preserve the home's integrity and has an enviable list of architectural details to boast of. You are first greeted by the large covered front porch, perfect for morning coffee and enjoying the abundance of greenery on the grounds. The main level has gorgeous heart pine flooring and soaring 12-foot ceilings throughout, with plaster walls freshly painted in blues, greens and grays that are both dramatic and soothing. An abundance of windows, including several stained, leaded-glass windows reclaimed from a local church let in tons of natural light. Two living spaces are connected by a foyer and can be opened or closed off with the original pocket doors. The living room flows into the huge dining room through another pair of pocket doors, which is open to the kitchen, and what a kitchen it is! Totally refreshed in 2016, the kitchen features true custom cabinetry, quartz counters, a Kohler farmhouse sink, Jenn-Air appliances, brass fixtures and lighting and a coffee bar. No expense was spared for the most important room in the house - it truly must be seen to be appreciated! The right wing of the main level has two bedrooms and two baths, including the master suite with double closets, sleek bath and clawfoot tub. The upstairs has a bonus room and another private suite, complete with a second clawfoot tub and period fixtures. All the windows showcase custom wood plantation shutters. The home's restoration didn't stop at the aesthetics, as it has a recently installed roof, HVAC systems and plumbing as well. The grounds are equally beautiful, including a serene koi pond, majestic Southern trees, large chicken coop, carport and a separate workshop with a surprising amount of room inside. The basement has tons of room for storage and it currently set up as a workroom for the owner. Another benefit is that the property is on both City water and sewer, so no septic tank to maintain. Come enjoy a refined farmhouse lifestyle on this estate while being steps to the Comer farmer's market, minutes to Watson Mill Bridge State Park and only 25 minutes to downtown Athens!
