1855 Greek Revival
Nestled privately on 2.27 acres, she is constructed with FOUR (4) Bricks of thickness and solid walls bolted together in all 4 directions & secured with Hurricane Bolts! No wonder the Civil War 6lb round cannon “wound” on her left side barely made a dent! (*Please download complete history on Atkins-Sims house attached with documents) The front porch is nothing but “Grand.”
As you enter the center hallway the first family room/parlor is on the left with a beautifully refinished mantle and updated gas fireplace. On the right is a room that is currently being utilized as an office, but has previously also been a master bedroom with a walk through to private porch and ensuite bath with claw foot tub and separate shower. Magnificent Dining Room opens to side porch and into large, spacious kitchen. The Dining Room and Kitchen were added to the house in 1911 when the separate Cook House burnt down.
The kitchen was remodeled several times over the decades and now has everything the chef in the family could want including a middle island and huge walk-in pantry with some of the original cabinets! All appliances remain including Elmira Stove, Refrigerator, Washer & Dryer!
Up the gorgeous staircase (feel the handrail- not made like that anymore) find your 2nd center hallway with 3 bedrooms, plus an upstairs master bedroom with sitting room/nursery/office. New upstairs bath with double vanity, walk-in shower with dual shower heads, and vanity area. Don't miss the room-size custom built closet – because they used armoires in 1855!! Large 2nd Family Room upstairs is great for movie or game time. Enjoy the Great view from 2nd floor balcony and makes a wonderful place for holiday decor hanging! All original Heart of Pine Hardwood Floors throughout and there are now 19 solid brass antique Hollywood Regency Chandeliers in the home that were found to match the oldest ones hanging originally in the house.
Current owners have completed extensive and detailed renovations keeping home to its period. The outside living space, 2.27-acre grounds and outbuildings are equally as impressive. Enjoy 2 covered porches or a screened porch for different sunrise and sunset views. or dinner in the gazebo! There is a 3-car detached garage with bath and large room currently used for storage that could easily be converted to in-law suite. Small white storage house has huge storage or fun play cottage with loft and “barn” also makes great play cottage, storage or pet barn. Reproductions of original corn crib also on property. Chickens allowed!
