Description

Circa 1838. The iconic "Dixie Manor" a stunning gem of Historic Downtown Covington features a unique English Regency architecture. Classically proportioned with beautiful symmetry, this 2 acre estate is the only Brick Antebellum home in Covington. The property was once a part of a dowry. Features of this home include: construction from hand made bricks imported from England in the early 1800's, no timber or block interior walls, the original mahogany staircase and timeless woodwork and chandeliers that were specifically sourced from the home of Jean-Paul Gaultier in Italy. Featured in film and television and highlighted on the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation Fall Ramble of 2018. Primary BR on main with luxurious ensuite, 10 decorative fireplaces inside. 12 foot ceilings and 7 foot windows throughout which allow light to pour in. This private oasis is only a short walk to contemporary dining and drinks and lovely shopping on the sought after Covington Square. Gated grounds include frescoed saltwater pool, travertine columned portico with 11th FP. Property includes historic original outhouse and private garden. Located on a hill inside the Covington Historic District- Covington is extremely popular and a huge draw to visitors and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Just steps away from the new Central Park which includes a Disc golf course and playground. Easy walk to the Newton County Cricket Frog Trail. New roof and pool filter in 2020. Previously approved as a Bed and Breakfast in 2018. Property is being sold furnished and "as is". After a previous owner- Dr Roscoe Sams- inherited the house in 1945, he used portions of the oversized bedrooms to add closets and glass enclosed the back porch to what is now the sunroom. The home was on the Covington Tour of Homes in 1948 and was referred to as "the quaintest relic of the whole tour". Don't miss this outstanding home and it's welcoming surroundings.
