One of the most recognizable homes in Lanett, AL is now available for sale! A vision of Georgian architecture, this four bedroom, five bath home was designed by renowned Atlanta architect Kennon Perry. Located atop a hill on North 18th Street, this stately home backs up to historic Fort Tyler where the last battle of the Civil War was fought a week after General Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox. Enjoy spending time at this National Historic Monument by accessing the Fort by private gate located atop the terraced backyard.
At first sight, you will be absolutely captivated by the architectural details and timeless design of this home. At over 5400 square feet, spread across three stories, this all brick home has a demanding presence.
Through the front door awaits the formal living room with gorgeous hardwood flooring, cast plaster moldings, 9 foot ceilings, judges paneling and a hand carved moon and star mantel with marble surround. From the living room, you then pass to the formal dining room, also with gleaming original hardwood floors, cast plaster molding, judges paneling and a plaster ceiling medallion fit for this elegant setting. Just off the formal dining room lies a butler's pantry with keyed liquor cabinet, and cozy breakfast room with built-in cabinetry and tile flooring. Through the breakfast room lies the recently semi-remodeled kitchen, which still houses the original cabinetry, but with solid surface countertops, tile backsplash and updated appliances. Off the formal living room lies a gentleman's dream library, with heart pine paneling and gas log fireplace. This room overlooks the brick patio located behind the home and gives a wonderful view of the terraced backyard accented and staired with river rocks pulled from the Chattahoochee River.
Want to take a look at the second story...take the elevator! That's right, this home has an elevator that services all three stories! The top floor houses all four of the bedrooms and three full baths. The master suite, located on the back side of the home, has a remodeled bath with jetted tub, separate glass shower, marble tile and chandelier.
The basement level of the home has an incredible large playroom, or billiards room for those with older children! Also located in the full daylight basement is an exercise room, half bath, and wine cellar.
