The Oak House

617 Dixie Avenue Madison, GA 30650
$3,250,000

Description

Established in 1809, Madison, Georgia is just 55 miles from downtown Atlanta. Once a flourishing stagecoach stop, its architecture survived Sherman’s march due to a plea from Mayor Joshua Hill. It is the heart of the community, their dedication to historic preservation and retention of small-town character that make Madison such a charming center for tourism in the area.Raised on the site of the Godfrey-Walton House, originally built in the early 1800s then burned in 1890, the tribute was finished around 1897. Hansen Architects, an acclaimed restoration firm, took on the exhaustive addition and renovation in 1994 which tripled the size of the home while keeping with its’ historic integrity. This opulent masterpiece boasts a two-story grand entrance that leads into the more than 20-foot cathedral ceiling gallery, crowned with a stained-glass ceiling. Beyond the breath-taking gateway, the main level features an over-sized sitting room, music room, library with coffered ceiling, wet bar, parlor, solarium, chef designed kitchen, butler’s pantry, and dining room with seating for 28. The upper living level touts four full guest suites, secondary office space and an immense master wing with his and her spa bathrooms, separate extensive walk-in closet areas and dance studio. The roof can be accessed through the top floor which houses a craft room and, for the astute rail buff, a dedicated model train room that parallels the city of Madison. Finally, the lower level accommodates a full gym, wine cellar, commercial walk-in cooler, laundry/dry clean facility, and spacious live-in-staff quarters. In addition, the vast grounds are complete with detached four-car garage, manicured boxwood gardens, greenhouse, infinity pool and enormous guest house. It has sweeping views from every level, waxed pine paneling, and hand-crafted detailing throughout but, most notable, is the inaugural hand-carved staircase with leaves from a particular tree that christened this showpiece “The Oak House”.
