Deemed “The Crown Jewel Of Historic Vineville” This Historically Significant Estate, Designed By Noted Southern Architect, Charles M. Choate in 1916, Is Considered One Of The Finest Examples Of American Craftsman Architecture In Existence Within The Eastern United States.

In 1986, This One-Of-A-Kind Estate Was Purchased By The Current Owners Who Lovingly Restored It Over The Next Five Years To Its Original 1916 Design & Have Impeccably Maintained It Ever Since. In 1987, The Owners Were Advised By Representatives Of The Smithsonian Institute That The Pergola (With Its Original Furniture Intact) Is Only One Of Two Structures Like It Still In Existence In The United States.

The Owner’s Declined The Offer But Did Agree To Have Renderings & Replicas Of The Pergola & Furniture Made For Their Archives. The Owners Have Been Recognized By The Georgia Trust, The Macon Heritage Foundation, The Vineville Neighborhood Association, The Charles M. Choate Museum, The Hay House, The City Of Macon & Historic Macon For Their Dedication & Outstanding Efforts On Behalf Of Historic Preservation.
