c. 1892 Restored Folk Victorian

218 S Main St, Winterville, GA 30683, USA


Newly listed for sale is this historic home sited on two acres and dating back to a simpler time of 1892. Be not fooled by imitation, this is a true, first generation Winterville home with well-researched history. Burgeoning Downtown Winterville will be excited to have you along for the journey as the currently-under-construction Firefly Trail elevates this quaint Athens suburb to new heights. While modern conveniences and stylings have been introduced to this home through an extensive renovation and historic restoration, the charm of yesteryear remains intact. Original, hand hewn hardwood flooring and baseboards run throughout the home’s c.1892 footprint. The front door’s sidelights have been enhanced by an eminent local glassmaker’s wavy panes – an homage to craftsmanship of the past. Hand-carved mouldings adorn the stairwell located in the entry foyer. Ten foot ceilings throughout the main level add to the already spacious feel of the home. As an artist-owned home, each living space and bedroom has seen many a re-purposing, though it is not difficult to envision a more traditional use of space if one desires. All of the home’s windows have been painstakingly restored down to the wavy glass, original window locks, and pulley system. At the rear of the home is where many of the modern amenities come out to play. A breezeway/ keeping room leads to a spacious owner’s suite featuring a sitting area, walk-in closet, and ensuite bath w/ double vanity, clawfoot tub, and separate shower. Remodeled kitchen boasts custom cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, pantry, laundry room, and eat-in kitchen space with tons of windows. Entertaining guests and enjoying evenings during all seasons will be made possible by the homes multiple outdoor spaces. Two freshly stained decks and a screened porch provide an array of options for relaxation. In 2017, a storage building was constructed in the image of the main structure. A majority of the property is fenced, and the rear yard w/ well-fed irrigation is just beckoning to be home to your vegetable garden. An historic home such as this is quite the rarity and only comes to market every so often, so be sure to pounce soon.
