From the Zillow listing:


Lovely 1800s home on a spacious, multi-acre lot! So much history in this home. The kitchen countertops were reclaimed from a railroad car, the bricks on the foundation and fireplaces were from a cotton mill in South Georgia, and the steppingstones came from the original foundation. Inside you will find a traditional floor plan perfectly enhances a charming interior which is light and uplifting and incorporates well-proportioned rooms, shiplap walls throughout, and wood slat ceilings. Spacious and inviting, this cozy kitchen is equipped with butcher block countertops and high ceilings. Find a restful hideaway in the comfortable owner’s suite that includes a large ensuite bathroom. Inviting and traditional, the main bathroom is beautifully appointed with a separate shower, soaking tub and his-and-hers sinks. Adding to the home’s charm are hardwood floors throughout. Head outside to the shaded backyard, which features a large deck, well-established hardwood trees, a 24 x 36 barn, outbuilding, a screened-in porch with a built-in outdoor gas stove, and so much more. Simply a perfect place to unwind. Are you looking for country living at its finest? Wonderfully located in a peaceful area of Walton County. A rare opportunity. We love this home. You will too.
