Description

Rare opportunity to own one of the most historic properties in Jefferson County. Magnificent 114-acre country estate located in Wadley, Georgia. The stately 5,028 square foot home has been tastefully restored to its 1851 elegance. Breathtaking grounds with updated landscaping, tranquil fountains, peaceful pastures for farming, and 12 acres of pecan trees. The exterior of the home was uncovered and refinished to display the original wood siding and trim. Inside the home, the tall ceilings, original hardware, radiant antique chandeliers, and the original pine hardwood floors throughout are a few of the most attractive features. First floor spaces include one bedroom, one full and one-half bathroom, spacious living room, updated kitchen with wall-to-wall windows for views of the spectacular grounds, two formal dining rooms, sunroom, and laundry room. Travel up the original staircase to find the additional five bedrooms with their own full bathrooms. Benajah Moye was one of the first land owners in the area and built the Moye Estate in 1851. During the early years of the Civil War, the home was used to house wounded soldiers. In 1863, orphaned boys from Bethesda in Savannah were moved here for safer living. General Sherman spared the main house but burned the outbuildings on his march. This notable home was formerly Bethany Farms Bed & Breakfast. The versatility of this property and sprawling estate are perfect for a single-family home, a bed and breakfast, hunting lodge, and more! The possibilities are endless!Major improvements in 2022 include updated kitchen, new HVAC, restoration of home and removal of vinyl siding, support beams replaced, fresh paint interior and exterior, electric gate, installation of all lighting including antique lighting throughout, exterior landscaping including fountain garden, and more!Updated plumbing and electric. Home is being sold furnished. Landscaping will be completed June 13, 2022. Call Molly with more questions!
