I’ve driven by this house since 1997. It sits outside of Madison and I first noticed it when I started driving down to college in South Georgia. I loved it when it was falling apart. The siding was gray. The roof was caving in. The porches were sagging. I remember driving by it and thinking “what a shame to let such a fantastic house go to waste” every single time I drove by. I even made my best friend at the time stop and take pictures a couple of times.
When Hunter and I lived in Madison, I was so excited to see that someone was finally doing this house justice. I mean, it’s the perfect farm house. Look at the porch.
There could even be a porch on the 2nd floor right here.
And the porches could wrap all the way around. It’s nearly there anyway! There’s just a screened porch off the back.
I’ll admit that I’m just a little bit obsessed with this house. I HAVE to pull off 441 and look at it nearly every time I drive by. I think that if I could build a house, even though I don’t want a 2-story house, I’d build this one…or a smaller version of it. It’s perfect.
Sigh! A girl can dream can’t she???
