Description

The iconic "Dixie Manor" is a stunning gem in sought after Historic Downtown Covington steps away from the popular Covington Square. Dixie Manor could be a fabulous income producing Bed and Breakfast OR an airbnb-(it's already set up to rent out)! Dixie Manor has been exhibited in film and television productions and was highlighted on the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation Fall Ramble of 2018 plus it's also featured on the Covington Ghost Tour. Photographed by tourists from all over the World-Dixie Manor features a unique English Regency architecture classically proportioned with beautiful symmetry. This private oasis with its hallmark of history is only a short walk to contemporary dining, drinks and shopping and just a short drive to Three Rings Studio. This two acre estate is the only Brick Antebellum home in Covington. Some of the many features include: Construction from handmade bricks imported from England in the early 1800's, no timber or block interior walls. A timeless and original mahogany staircase and woodwork and chandeliers specifically sourced from the home of Jean-Paul Gaultier in Italy. Primary bedroom on main w/luxurious en suite, 10 decorative fireplaces inside, 12ft ceilings and 7ft windows throughout allowing light to cascade. Gated grounds guard the frescoed saltwater pool, travertine columned portico with the 11th fireplace. Property includes historic, original outhouse and private garden. Oh, the stories these walls could tell! Circa 1838-Dixie Manor is in the Covington Historic District-Covington is extremely popular and a huge draw to visitors/tourists. Dixie Manor is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. 2 min walk to Central Park which has a Disc Golf Course and playground and is an easy walk to the Newton County Cricket Frog Trail. A previous owner who inherited the house in 1945 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 first 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. New roof and pool filter in 2020. Previously approved for Bed and Breakfast in 2018. Property being sold FURNISHED.
