Description

Immerse yourself in the elegance of a home that has stood as the centerpiece of a vibrant community for many years. Located close to Barnsley Gardens and within 2 miles of I 75 just north of Atlanta, this beautiful and large retreat offers sweeping views, gracious hospitality and unparalleled opportunity as you envelope yourself in its unique history: On Oct.31,1836, William Watts purchased Land Lot 168 (originally consisting of 160 acres) from Hubbard Williams of Butts Country, who had won the tract in the 1832 Georgia Land Lottery. The proud new owner had a great vision in store for this beautiful and fertile tract of land: Watts either knew or suspected that the Western-Atlantic rail line was to travel from Atlanta to Chattanooga though this tract, and so he laid out the town that came to be known as Adairsville along this anticipated railway, and built his own personal home at the edge of the square atop a the hill that commanded an overview of the whole town, hence the name "Founders Manor. Whether by good fortune or speculative savvy, the Western-Atlantic railway did indeed arrive, and when they asked for their throughway, Watts eagerly deeded the right away over to them, knowing this would be the beating heart and lifeblood of the fledgling town.The postcard-perfect little town of Adairsville not only survived the Confederate war, but kept many of its original families, as well as many legends and folklore carried in the hearts of the present day townsfolk. One such tale was the rumor that Mr. Watts personal residence had been built where there once stood an old Cherokee log cabin. Sure enough, during restoration the current owners uncovered notched logs from an ancient log cabin beneath the floors, and a piece of that is proudly on display in the parlor of the home today.Sitting proudly upon its 2.2 acres overlooking the quaint town, this home consists of 6 luxuriously appointed bedrooms, 11 fireplaces, a formal foyer, formal parlor with original and operating enormous pocket doors opening to a dining room with luxury seating for 12, spacious adjoining Living room, a Grand Hall (app 25 x 45) off the dining room, a back servant staircase, 4 full baths, 2 half baths (one with bidet), organic raised bed garden, and more.For those who love to leave their personal mark, the attic with its soaring ceilings and big windows was also a project the current owners planned to extend into, as well as making the structure behind the house (which has been rumored to be either a carriage house or former summer kitchen and has a lower workshop area with drive) with its pyramid shaped ceiling (a masonic artifact?) into a private quarters, as well. This magnificent one-of-a kind circa 1840s home was used as a private residence most of its life, but eventually changed hands and purposes, becoming commercially used for a duration, at which time the kitchen was moved upstairs, however the "Grand Hall could easily welcome a brand new kitchen and more, or be left for weddings and events or bed and breakfast venue, leaving the upstairs kitchen as a family kitchen, s courtesy kitchen for guests, or a caterers kitchen.Featured in "Life in Adairsville book: surrounded by antique stores, southern hospitality, and located only minutes away from the prestigious Barnsley Gardens Resort, Founders Manor may be sold turnkey including a turn of the century antique baby grand piano shipped directly from a mansion in Paris, as well as all furnishings, ready and waiting to welcome its new owners into whichever direction of many directions they choose to take. Whether you would like to simply live here in this rare air and enjoy both spectacular sunsets and sunrises from its many grand porches and visages or use this as a beautiful way to make a very happy living-or both-this one-of-a-kind home is full of unique features, historical significance, and unlimited opportunities that only come around every so often.
