Property Description

Rare opportunity to own one of the most historic properties in Jefferson County. Magnificent 114-acre country estate located in Wadley, Georgia. The stately 5,028 square foot home has been tastefully restored to its 1851 elegance. Breathtaking grounds with updated landscaping, tranquil fountains, peaceful pastures for farming, and 12 acres of pecan trees. The exterior of the home was uncovered and refinished to display the original wood siding and trim. Inside the home, the tall ceilings, original hardware, radiant antique chandeliers, and beautiful hardwood floors throughout are a few of the most attractive features. First floor spaces include two bedrooms, one full and one-half bathroom, spacious living room, updated kitchen with wall-to-wall windows for views of the spectacular grounds, two formal dining rooms, sunroom, and laundry room. Travel up the original staircase to find the additional four bedrooms with their own full bathrooms plus one additional full bathroom. Benajah Moye was one of the first land owners in the area and built the Moye Estate in 1851. During the early years of the Civil War, the home was used to house wounded soldiers.
