Settled on a knoll amid azaleas, wild blueberry and raspberry bushes, magnolias and grand old oaks “Honey Hill” sits proudly with its stately Greek-Revival columns, fanlighted doorway with bevel leaded glass and classic southern shutters. Originally built by William Franklin Edwards in 1870 from timbers and bricks hand made on the property, this 19th century home has been beautifully restored and maintained and offers all the amenities for 21st century living. As you enter the front door you will instantly be dazzled by the large foyer flanked by the formal living and dining rooms. The central hallway then leads you to the huge country kitchen that opens to a breakfast room and then the huge family room that overlooks the rear veranda. Upstairs you will find three grand scale guest bedrooms each with large storage closets and grand scale master suite complete with fireplace, his and hers bathrooms, and walk-in closet. This home is truly in amazing condition having been painstakingly restored by its previous owners.

The kitchen features beautiful new cherry wood cabinets, granite counters, double ovens, walk-in pantry complete with sink and space for a 2nd refrigerator and a large breakfast room that also opens to the rear veranda. All bathrooms have been beautifully renovated with new vanities and fixtures and all systems have been replaced and modernized.
