Tour a Beautiful Historic Victorian Home in Newnan, Georgia

I’m a member of The Georgia Trust and twice a year (Spring and Fall) they host a “Ramble.” A ramble is just that…rambling around through the town where the tour is being held and rambling in and out of some amazing historic homes.

The ramble, which took place a couple of weeks ago, was in the town of Newnan, Georgia. Fortunately, Newnan was largely untouched by the American Civil War due to its status as a hospital city (for Confederate troops), and as a result is still home to much antebellum architecture. For this reason, Newnan is known as “The City of Homes.” We saw some gorgeous historic homes on the tour.

The following pics were all taken of the beautiful Victorian home you see below. I believe this home is designed in the Second Empire (Mansard) style. I just discovered today (Saturday) that this home is also, for sale for $1,490,000. You can see the real estate listing here. I’ve posted a few of the pics shown in the listing…they are noted with an asterisk. Most of the pictures below were taken the day of the tour. Enjoy!

Amazing ceiling in the entrance hall.

Some of the doorways had amazing drapery/hangings!

Gorgeous stain glass work on the landing going to the upstairs.

Look at that woodwork!

Another beautiful doorway…

Kitchen…

Great porch on one side of the house…

The railing design looks like a sitting cat to me.  Someone else said it looked like an angel to them.  What do you see?

Back View…

Hope you enjoyed the tour of the wonderful Victorian home!

    What an incredible tour..I would have given anything to be there.. the beautiful dressings at the doorways took my breath away..I’m wondering was that tile on the front of the fireplace, tin?? They were absolutely gorgeous.. I agree, the railings look like a cat sitting on it’s bottom. A person could sure enjoy a late afternoon with some sweet tea on that beautiful porch.Those ceilings were out of this world..I love the window with the light on..makes you want to go inside and see more. I’ll be looking forward to the next posting on your fun filled day..

    Swoon….I am such a sucker for old houses, and this is fabulous!! I want to go on the ramble. :-)

    I can’t wait to see your wreath project!

  6. That looks like a kitty railing to me too. That is one gorgeous house. I can’t believe the draperies either! Wow! Thanks for sharing. Looking forward to the wreath project.

  7. This home is incredible from the outside to the inside. I’m so glad it has an owner who is lovingly caring for it. And yes, the porch railing does look like kitties.

  8. Some day when we’re wondering around Georgia, I’m going to go to this town to see the beautiful homes. This one is incredible.

    Hugs,
    Chris

  9. Oh . . . WOW!! It was just like being there Susan! Thanks so much for sharing – you’re such a great photographer. Sometimes when I “try” to take a pic of something, I try to imagine one of your rooms and the incredible way you take your pics – mine just don’t really compare. Again, thanks for the tour, can’t wait to see more.

  12. Julia @ Hooked on Houses says:

    Thanks so much for joining the blog party. I loved your post! What amazing houses. I’ve never heard of a “ramble,” but I think we should start calling our house tours that around here, too! :-)

    I got such a kick out of the “kitty” railing. How fun. I want one of those on my porch! (And a porch like this one to go with it, while I’m at it.)

    Can’t wait to see more pics from other houses on the tour! -Julia

  13. Happy To Be says:

    Susan did I give you permission to show my house girl?? WOW these are the kind of homes that have always spoke to my heart..the workmanship was just outstanding then and to think people were tearing these home down here in Calif to put freeways..just made me want to slap them silly..
    and yes the porch railing does look like a kitty sitting..And oh that stain glass windows girl I am drolling on my key board for sure today..Thanks Susan for sharing this BEAUTIFUL home..WOW!! Have a great day Susan…Hugs and smiles Gloria

    I see kitties too! I love the name of the home tour and it’s so completey descriptive. I might have to steal that idea. Thanks for the tour and I can’t wait for the next installment. I’m so happy that you take your camera with you wherever you go. What can you find to snap pics of at Publix?

  15. The details in this home are incredible! Thanks for sharing it.

  16. Those do look like cats! This is such a beautiful house. I’m in love with that stained glass! And that ceiling-Wow! What a wonderful tour. Thanks. laurie

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  19. OH BOY,THOSE DRAPED DOORWAYS WERE AWESOME.THEY LOOK LIKE SOMETHING VANNA OR GLORIA WOULD HAVE IN THEIR HOMES.
    IF I’D HAVE GONE WITH YOU,I WOULDN’T HAVE WANTED TO LEAVE….I REALLY,REALLY ENJOYED IT…ANN

  20. Lady Katherine says:

    Thank you for the home tour! It was wonderful. I got stuck in the parlor looking at the drapes. My parlor is small up side this beautiful home. Its a Dream Home. The bedroom drapes, the stained glass, Just beautiful. I went in a home in Tallbaton, Georia, not sure spell right. Any way it was a chance, a lady had drove, just before me and asked the man that lived alone if see could see his home. He had a little shop out back, why I stopped, The man ask if I would go in too, for he did not want to let her with just him. I was a little undecided at first, but went for it, It was a three story, with terrace. All the antique all still in place. It was a wonderful time. Thanks for sharing,

  21. This house is a showplace! Thanks for sharing the pictures.

  22. Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity says:

    What a great tour. I love the homes you have posted. I grew up in a very historical town in IL. The homes there are awesome,too!!
    Thanks for sharing!! Hugs, Terrie

  23. The only “ramble” we have in may area is of a historic cemetery in Macon. I have never been on the Rose Hill Ramble, but have always intended to go. I had a reminder to myself on my computer, that suffered a catastrophic crash in June. It (the ramble) was today, and I missed it again. I will shoot for the Spring Ramble, the Sunday after Easter.
    I enjoyed your “ramble” very much, and am glad there is more of it to come.

  24. Cottage Rose says:

    Hello; OH my goodness what beautiful homes, I love the drapes in the bath just so sheer and light. thank for sharing them.

    Hugs;
    Alaura

  25. Oh me, I misspoke. I napped for several hours today, and lost track of the day. The Ramble is tomorrow, it wasn’t today. I think I still may wait until the Spring to go however, as there is definitely a Fall chill in the air.

  26. WOW!
    Now thats a HOUSE!

  27. Susan – My sister and I are planning an early Dec. trip to Atlanta. She is going for business, I’m going along for the ride!! I would love to visit “A Classy Flea”. I googled them this morning and they came right up. We are staying in downtown Atl. How far are they from downtown? I would have her car, but I’m “directionally challenged”. LOL!! I just think it would be a great place to visit after seeing all your pics from there? We also plan on going to Ikea, since we don’t have one of those here, but we’re doing that on Sun when she has time to go. Just thought I’d ask and would appreciate just a little info on how far away it is.
    Thanks.
    Lynette

  28. Susan (Moonlight and Magnolias on RMS) says:

    Hi Lynette…How cool that you are coming to Hotlanta! :-) I live in Marietta about 3 miles from the Flea. A Classy Flea is probably a 45 minute drive from Peachtree City. Peachtree City is on the south side of Atlanta I believe and Marietta is about 15-20 minutes north of Atlanta. You would just come straight up, north on I-75. My email is: betweennapsontheporch@gmail.com. Feel free to email me. I’ll be happy to give you directions to the Flea. It would be fun to meet up while you are here in town. :-) Susan

  29. Ouuuuu I could move right in!

    Thank you for shareing with us!

    Hugz, Dolly

    wow. this home is gorgeous! if i lived there, i’d never want to go out. those windows! it almost breaks my heart a little bit.

  35. So funny that you are in my neck of the woods! I grew up in Newnan but now live with my husband in Turin whic is a suburb of Newnan (it’s not really big enough to have its own burbs but it does). I’ve gone by that particular house about a gazillion times. I remember it being different colors when I was little though. There are several other houses in the area that are beautiful! I can’t wait to see more of what you saw! It’s neat to see your home town through someone else’s eyes.

  36. what a beautiful home and the price is unbelieveable Something like that in Calif would be 5 times that OOHAAH! What a fun tour that must have been so lucky for us all that we have your blog to follow. Thankyou for sharing, Love it! Smiles Kathysue

  39. Hi Susan :)

    I’m just finishing up Julia’s Hooked on Houses tour. This house is beautiful!! They did an amazing job decorating it. The woodwork on the staircase is amazing too.

    Thank you for sharing it :)

  40. lvroftiques says:

    Wowser!!! What an amazing house!! And in such perfect shape! The curtains that hang on the inside doorways are called portieres. And they are stunning in this house!!! I only wish we had a “ramble” in my neck of the country. We’re so new here that you just don’t find homes like this anywhere! 1854 is as old as they go. Thank you for sharing your “ramble” with us! I am drooling all over my laptop! Lol!! Can’t wait to see more of the tour!! Vanna

  41. Susan (Moonlight and Magnolias on RMS) says:

    Hey Vanna…thanks for sharing the name for those scrumptious draperies in the door way…I had no idea! :-)

  42. Beautiful!

  43. Susan BetweenNapsOnThePorch says:

    Hi Brandy,
    Yep, we used to go there every year…lots of fun! I've eaten at Sprayberry's but not in ages. I'm a huge BBQ fan. Some of my faves around ATL are Harolds and Community BBQ. Have you ever been to Two Brothers in Ballground? The best brunswick stew is Harolds…no one does it better! :)

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
