You wake up to beautiful surroundings both inside and out. Historic character yet very livable. Modern comforts carefully blended in. Walking around the delightful garden, sitting in the center of the parterre listening to the tinkling fountain on a warm southern evening, or relaxing on the wraparound porch chatting to the neighbors who walk by; all superb experiences. At Christmas time, the log fire in the parlor adds ambiance to social gatherings and Magnolia leaves on the mantles are a perfect decoration. The doors between the dining, foyer and parlor can be open for party flow or closed for cozy evenings. The history of the house and the town is rich and well preserved. Madison Ave is home to many antebellum and postbellum houses while being only 3 blocks from historic downtown shopping. 1.5 hours from Atlanta, 1 hour from Athens, 1 hour from Macon. Perfect quiet small town living yet reasonable access to large metropolitan areas. There are 13 golf courses within a 20-mile radius. The Ezell House was built approx 20 years after the Civil war by Evan Benjamin Ezell next door to the Methodist church. So no noisy neighbors unless you mind the church bells! Generations of the Ezell family lived here until the Tatum family moved in in 1936. They owned the house until the 1990’s when it was renovated by a local resident. The current owners have owned the house since 1997. The Plaza Arts Center, directly across the street from Ezell House, marks the center of Eatonton’s historic neighborhood. Just two blocks from the Courthouse square and downtown shops and restaurants. The garden is featured on local garden tours
