TAYLOR HALL--Listed on the National Register of Historic Places
Taylor Hall, its double verandas overlooking the expansive lawn and oak woods beyond . . .
Built of native heart pine in 1825 by Creek Indians for Dr. Robert N. Taylor, a young physician from Orange County, Virginia, Taylor Hall is brimming with history. Constructed during the presidency of James Monroe, it remains a secluded respite from the 21st Century but with all the modern conveniences--the best of both worlds.
There are 3 large bedrooms and 3 full baths, 1 down and 2 up. Custom period window treatments complement the double-hung Architectural Pella windows with "invisible" screens (2008). On Spring and Fall days, enjoy cool breezes through the open windows. Two energy-efficient HVAC systems keep the home cool in summer, warm in winter. Utilities are very reasonable. The parlor has a large wood-burning fireplace. The three bedrooms each have a large fireplace with ventless gas logs. The eat-in kitchen features a stainless steel Samsung range and French door refrigerator, and Bosch D/W--all new in 2014. Double "Coffin Doors" open from the center hallways on both floors to rocking-chair verandas.
Taylor Hall is a thoughtfully restored Antebellum Plantation home on three fenced, park-like acres in Hawkinsville, Georgia. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
