The 1816 Plantation Home

Finding a home

In my searching for an old home in the Atlanta area, I came upon a home in Madison Georgia. It took my breath away! It was built in 1816 and has recently been renovated. So, yesterday we drove about an hour east of Atlanta to the home.

We exited the expressway and drove 10 miles on Davis Academy. Just when we thought we had gone the wrong way, there on the left stood this beautiful old home.
It sits on nearly 8 acres of land and was featured in the book, Madison, A Classic Southern Town.
It has paneled walls and ceilings and 5 masonry fireplaces. The picture cannot capture the glory of this home! I can't say my husband would live so far from Atlanta, but I did find my heart there!
