    Description

    Endless options to live and/or work in a National Historic Register property in the Commerce GA Central Business District, only an hour from Atlanta via I-85N, convenient to Athens, Lake Hartwell, Lavonia, Braselton and more. Zoned Residential/Commercial, the original character of the "Seaborn M. Shankle Home" built in 1843 and expanded in the 1870's has been scrupulously restored, maintained and modernized by the current owners. Charm and history abound in this captivating home and property constructed by one of the area's earliest families and merchants, who were responsible for much of the economic development and growth of the town formally known as Harmony Grove (named for Seaborn's mother). Also, the inspiration for past resident Olive Ann Burns' best-selling novel, "Cold Sassy Tree" and subsequent movie by the same name, the home is situated on 1.5 acres just off the main downtown street and is dotted with blueberry bushes, fig, walnut and pecan trees. Various out buildings, including the original smokehouse and a four-bay garage for your car collection or commercial use also pepper the site. Extensive historical and architectural information, photos and stories are available for the next custodian of this special property. Some of the current period furnishings are also negotiable in the sale.
