November 7, 2019

Pretty home and property! The Garden on Vine was built in 1895. It is located on 3.8 acres in Madison, Georgia. I love their usage of the old 50’s era bomb shelter! They turned it into a wine cellar and a workshop. The property has a pecan grove and beautiful gardens. The home has heart pine floors, heart pine trim, four original fireplaces, and tongue and groove ceilings. Love the red metal roof. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, and 3,091 square feet. $535,000

From the Zillow listing:


Garden on Vine is a magical place – nearly 4 acres in downtown Madison, with a pecan grove and gardens galore. Follow the stone fence to the C1895 Victorian cottage surrounded by interesting outbuildings, including oak horse and goat barns, plus a 50’s era bomb shelter converted to workshop and wine cellar. Seamlessly blending old and new, the home features antique heart pine floors and trim, four original fireplaces, and T&G ceilings, plus an iconic red metal roof and welcoming front porch. The master suite, garage, and kitchen expansion added the spaces needed for modern living. Designed by a professional chef, the kitchen includes a 6ft sq granite and oak island with Wolf 5 burner cooktop. 21st century energy updates include 6kW solar array, solar supported on-demand water heater, thermo pane windows, and foam insulation. Walk from Vine Street to four schools, the new library, the new Aquatic Center and downtown. It’s a great neighborhood for biking, running and walking.
