Pssst: I’ve been sharing pics on Instagram from my trip to the Atlanta Botanical Garden to see the wonderful Chihuly Exhibit. You’ll find those here: BNOTP on Instagram
Back in May of 2010, I was out for a walk in Roswell with a friend and we passed by historic Mimosa Hall. I’ve never really been able to get a good look at Mimosa Hall because the front yard is so wooded. Even in winter it’s impossible to really get a good view of the home.
Since it was still pretty early in the spring, I could see a bit more of it that day.
The same friend emailed recently to let me know that this beautiful historical home is now on the market. This photo below is from the listing.
Mimosa Hall located in Roswell, Georgia was built in 1840. During the 1920’s it was the home to the famed architect, Neel Reid. During that time he created a double parlor inside and designed the home’s long fieldstone driveway and courtyard.
The entrance hall is spectacular!
The floor in the entrance is black and white marble. You’ll notice some gorgeous chandeliers and beautiful lanterns throughout the home.
I guess this is the living room, but it’s so big, it looks like it could have been a ball room back in the day.
This is my favorite room in the home–the library!
Love the floor in the kitchen. I wonder when the cabinets with the shutter doors were installed.
The dining room…look at that chandelier and those gorgeous doors!
I think this may be the upstairs hall. Of course the cute dollhouse definitely caught my eye.
This home has 10 fireplaces! The bedrooms are really large.
I bet this is another bedroom.
There’s a pool out back for cooling off during those hot Georgia summers.
Mimosa Hall is surrounded by beautiful woodland. The listing said there’s another 21 acres of adjoining woods available for sale. I had no idea there was so much undeveloped land in this area.
You’ll find additional photos of the home, including those of a 19th century grist mill that was turned into a barn for entertaining, at the listing here: Mimosa Hall
