About This Old House

Check out the Virtual Tour here!

Own a crown jewel of Georgia’s Colonial History – The Magnificent Winfrey-Davies-Hawkins House. Seclusion and magic await only 12 minutes from downtown Athens. This 145-acre stunning estate has not only seen the birth and growth of generations, it has been a protagonist in the stories of Native American tribes, cities, and counties that formed on and around it. Originally part of the estate of Benjamin Baldwin, the property is marked by the historic boundary of the ”Treaty Tree,” which previously marked the northwestern most point of The Colony of Georgia (see documents attached). From the moment you drive onto the land, you will be enamored by never-ending green pastures. Acres upon acres of impeccably balanced open fields and woodland are the perfect setting for this spectacular antebellum home built in 1828. You will be captivated by the picture-perfect landscape and flawless topography that seamlessly embrace a two-acre, breathtaking lake with the most surreal and magical scenic views. An imposing two-story front porch welcomes you to experience the authentic southern hospitality of this majestic Greek Revival style plantation dream. This distinguished six-bedroom home (with two bedrooms on the main floor) has been nicely preserved, with adjacent buildings and other improvements constructed throughout the decades. It now boast an enormous foyer, a ”parlor chamber”, formal living and dining rooms. Throughout the home you can experience the authentic Neo-Classical architectural style characteristic of the 19th Century. Gorgeous original crown molding, beaded ceilings, intricate trims and hardwoods tastefully grace all areas of the home. A screened-in living room porch, a huge kitchen and eight fireplaces within its two stories. Detached but adjacent are two darling red barns and a two-car garage. This fabulous estate includes a total of 145 beautiful acres.
