A classic Ionic Greek Revival commissioned by Judge Cecil Brown and completed in 1912. ''Swan Hall Manor'' stands proudly on 1.5 acre corner lot in the prominent ''Silk Stocking'' district, in the renoun town of Talledaga, Alabama. The huge structure is brick and frame with 6,477sq ft of living space, boasting 21 rooms in total (5 bedrooms, 4 full bathrooms, parlor, living room, dining room, 2 kitchens, 2 sunrooms, den, a recreation room, a study, an office, a laundry room, and also, a full attic and basement). The ceilings are impressive at 12 feet in height. Fireplaces are center pieces of 9 main rooms, central air and heat is used to keep the house cozy. Step back in time through the grand entrance hall as it gives way to tradition and displays reputedly, one of the most beautiful waterfall staircases in the state, truly representing the pride and glory of the south.

Monumental greek collumns stand proud on the porch of this great home. From the porch a grand staircase leads you to luscious gardens. On the stately grounds, magnificent Magnolia Trees stand as sentinels accompanied with mature Oak Trees, Dogwoods, and brilliant Camelia's. In the spring, you can enjoy the full blossom of daffodils, lillies and tulips, in the fall, there is a spectacle of colors everywhere.
