We were very blessed to be able to purchase our home this summer. We looked at tons of homes and always came back to this one....each time telling ourselves we had lost our minds. But...it just 'felt' like home.
The previous owner (a local contractor) and his wife loved antebellum homes and "Gone With the Wind." Much of the inspiration came from "Twelve Oaks"...Ashley Wilkes' home.
The previous owner and his wife built on the home for years, approximately 20, never completing it. They did live in it for about 10 years. The Mrs. passed over about 7 years ago, after 52 years of marriage. The Mr., broken-hearted, put down his hammer and never did anything else on the home. He passed over about 4 years ago. Since that time, the home has been empty. His son inherited the home and said he was 'looking for the right couple' for his parents' home. The son refused several offers. We all feel it was Divine Guidance the way things worked out for this to be our home.
I'll post pics below.
