Description

This is a "Rare" opportunity to own a TRUE Historic Antebellum home in the Heart of beautiful Madison, Ga. Team Hendrix of Keller Williams Premier is excited to offer "The Thomason/Ponder house," described as one of the oldest houses in Madison and located a mere block from downtown. The Thomason house was built in the 1840s by Adam Saffold, presumably as a wedding gift to his daughter Anna, as some of the local historians wrote. (PowerPoint of the homes history can be shared) The home has rich history, including an article reported by the Madisonian in 1915 describing "one of the most beautiful weddings ever solemnized in Madison. The article was so detailed that you could truly imagine Bessie Ponders descent down the spiral staircase to wed James Godfrey in front of one of the homes three gorgeous bay windows. As you walk through this home, you will feel its rich tradition in every room while also enjoying the modern conveniences of a newer home. The home has original heart pine flooring and boasts 4 large bedrooms, 3 beautiful bathrooms, and 1 half bath found on the main level. It also features 5 decorative fireplaces and built-in cabinets. One bedroom with an adjoining full bath is on the main level. A larger bedroom with adjoining bath and his and hers closets is located on the second floor. The current owners have spent the last five years and over $150K lovingly renovating this beautiful home. Updates include a new 320 SF workshop with electricity and a privacy fence. Other additions include two jetted tubs, steam shower, tankless water heater, closet organization, a chefs kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and a massive island, and much more! There are two large sitting porches to enjoy and three balconies accessible by floor to ceiling walk out windows. The Thomason house is 1 bock away from Town Park and many of the FANTASTIC restaurants and shops that Madison offers. You won't find a better location, with very little traffic around the house, but "Oh, So, Close" to everything! Come see this BEAUTIFUL home today!!
