'The Powell House' was built in 1885 by Civil War General Powell. He purchased 1100 acres at the foothills of the 'Blue Ridge' mountains and chose this location to take advantage of a 360 degree view and breezes that flow through the windows even on hot summer days. The perfect location to make priceless family memories. A total renovation was completed in spring of 2012 to preserve the integrity of the original farmhouse while adding additional rooms to take full advantage of the surrounding mountains. Each of the three large porches offer their own spectacular view. Evenings on the thirty foot front porch hosts a nightly summer light show by resident fire flies that take any adult back to childhood! The upstairs 24 foot porch offers breathtaking views of the North Georgia Mountains from handcrafted glider rockers that are hard to leave. From the 24 X 24 farmhouse kitchen/dining area that seats eleven to the family room that offers incredible views, there is ample room to create memories that will last a lifetime. There are 2 master bedrooms one upstairs with original claw foot tub and one downstairs with an orginal fireplace that has been converted to gas with a new ensuite bathroom. The large living room is a spacious 22X14 with original fireplace that has been converted to gas. A new additional half bath is located conveniently off of the farmhouse kitchen/dining room. Upstairs are two additional original bedrooms; one with a queen bed, another room with a set of twin beds, as well as the second floor master suite and additional full bathroom with shower to accommodate the upstairs bedrooms and family . All electrical, plumbing, roof, A/C, tankless water heater, exterior cedar siding, appliances (including maytag washer and dryer) double paned window, and three sets of french doors were all replaced in 2012 total renovation.
The acre property and house is surrounded by boxwood hedges, thus where the name of the street originated. Privacy in a country setting yet walking distance to the famous 'Dillard House' restaurant and over a dozen antique shops.
