DESCRIPTION

Take a step back in time. The historic McWhorter House is a gorgeous Classical Revival home with Arts & Craft features, masterfully renovated preserving many its original decorative embellishments yet with ample modern updates for comfort and convenience. This 6 BR, 3 Full BA and 2 half bath home boasts formal classical details such as built in cabinets with the original rectangular leaded glass panes, mantels with exquisite wood work and restored wood floors. Each room is elegantly proportioned and illuminated by natural light. An upgraded kitchen overlooking the exquisite garden has a gas stove, plenty of cabinet space, a double sink and an adjoining sun room/breakfast nook with its own entrance which can be used for informal dinning or as a private office or studio. Enter into the gracious great room with built-in breakfront of leaded glass and impressive original pocket doors. The Music room is adjacent as well as an expansive formal Dining Room with stunning double doors that borrow light from the great room when the wide pocket doors are opened. The farm kitchen overlooks the exquisite garden and features lots of storage as well as a pantry. Appliances included. Master Bedroom suite is on the main level with a new ensuite bath and walk in tiled shower and double vanities. Original wavy glass windows throughout denotes the elegance of a past era yet upgraded to suit needs of contemporary life styles. Follow the elegant light filled staircase up to a large landing with exquisitely finished floors and 4 large bedrooms—all with magnificent views of the estate's 3.8 acres. The third level, past the large upstairs porch, contains a full bedroom suite with bath. Perfect for Airbnb guests, rental or studio. The grounds are landscaped with plants providing seasonal interest and would be a great place for a Bed and Breakfast or wedding venue. The home is impressively set in a promenade of trees leading up to the house as well as an avenue of mature white crepe myrtles lining the back garden which contains various historic buildings — a smoke house, garden shed, small chicken or rabbit house, as well as an outbuilding with modern bathroom perfect for a pool house. Home is close to historic downtown and within the Historic district of Lexington and only 20 minutes from Athens. Live the life of tranquility in the up and coming artsy town of Lexington in your own 1905 restored plantation style home currently in the final stages of renovation.
