From the Zillow listing:
The Home of Harris Clay. Hidden behind a wall of lush greenery for decades, one of Augusta’s finest properties is now available for sale. This 3+ acres estate, having once encompassed the entire block, now rests quietly as one of Milledge Road’s last great mansions ready for restoration.
The home and grounds have a rich history of their own, and were known to regularly host President William Howard Taft on his visits to Augusta, as he was a good friend of the family. The millwork and attention to detail throughout the home are exquisite. The lush gardens boast mature trees and shrubs only centuries can produce.
The restoration of this historic mansion is project meant for someone who truly understands this masterpiece; someone special. This generational opportunity to own a sprawling estate on one of Augusta’s most sought after streets may never again be seen in this lifetime.
