The Billups-Tuell House

651 N Main St, Madison, GA 30650
$1,450,000

Description

One of Madison’s most beautiful historic homes, The Billups – Tuell House, is on the market for the first time since 1965. This classic Greek Revival raised cottage has been lovingly and meticulously restored and modernized while keeping its historic integrity. A comprehensive restoration project, completed in 2008, included: rebuilding the foundation, porch and roof; adding a 2-story addition with new kitchen, master bath and family room; and installing new wiring, plumbing and HVAC systems. The resulting home is a seamless and functional integration of the old and the new. The home’s spacious 1853-era rooms have pristine plaster walls with picture railings, 13.5 foot ceilings, and floor to ceiling windows. All original windows are protected and insulated with custom-built storm panels. The original heart pine floors, doors and their impressive pilasters and window surrounds have been beautifully refinished. These features create a stunning entry when stepping through the front door into the full-length center hallway. The modern addition features a cook’s kitchen with reclaimed heart pine flooring, cherry custom cabinetry, Brazilian granite countertops, Wolf gas range, Sub-Zero side by side refrigerator, full walk-in pantry and screened porch overlooking the pool. The master bedroom is on the main floor with new master bath including double vanities, travertine tile, separate shower and an antique claw foot tub. Secondary bedrooms downstairs have brick flooring, hand hewn beams in the ceilings and share a walk-thru shower. Full laundry room and game room are also on the lower level. The backyard features a gorgeous gunite swimming pool with large wading sun step, flowing fountains and passive solar panels for an extended swim season. Adjacent to the pool is a rare, historic, 2-room ‘summer kitchen’ which is a lovely, usable space. The grounds are classically southern with mature magnolias, oaks, pecans, figs, 60+ dogwoods and an organic vegetable garden. The owners have created a ‘natural park’ with habitats for butterflies, hummingbirds and bluebirds. This home is absolutely a must see! It is right in the heart of downtown Madison where you will enjoy being within walking distance of shopping, dining, schools and a new city park.
