Welcome to the 258th Metamorphosis Monday!
A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to tour The Powell House, an historic home built in 1928 in Villa Rica, Georgia.This home is currently going through a renovation/restoration so I thought you might enjoy touring it for Met Monday.
The Powell House was built by Villa Rica’s first doctor, Dr. Bruna Columbus Powell who passed away in 1961 at the age of 92. Dr. Powell owned the local pharmacy and ice company and was responsible for the founding of Villa Rica’s first hospital.
The entrance is truly grand…hard to capture its beauty in a photo.
Let’s go inside and check it out.
The brochure I picked up during my visit stated that The Powell House will soon be available for lease to a business once the renovations are complete.
Just inside the front door we saw this chandelier.
A fireplace in that same room…
All the fireplaces were decorated for Christmas since the home had just been featured on a Christmas home tour.
This room had a sunroom feel with windows all around.
The fireplace in this room…
The dining room with a big bay window…
Another room on the lower level. Notice the picture rail going around the room…love those! All the rooms were nice and large. Love the wood floors!
I really loved the butler’s pantry with built-in cabinetry. This was one of the largest butler’s pantries I’ve ever seen in an historic home. It was so big, the other end (behind me in this picture) could easily be used as a breakfast area.
This was the main staircase going up.
The home had a similar staircase at the back of the home, so there were two ways to access the upstairs.
More built-in cabinets near the rear staircase…love all the built-ins!
I took photos of the upstairs and will share those in another post since there are too many for one post.
Hope you enjoyed this tour of the lower level of the historic Powell House.
Looking forward to the Before and Afters linked for this Met Monday!
