From the Zillow listing:


I present to you the home known as ”New Haywood”. Elegant, rare to market, and a stunning piece of Victorian architecture. Truly a one-of-a-kind opportunity to be within walking distance of the town square yet tucked away on your own private 1.7 acre parcel. The breath taking cupola and intricate ”gingerbread” detail make this home one of the most admired homes in Georgia. Inside many period details from the 1880 build-date remain but modern conveniences make for easy living. The wood and stained glass front door welcomes you into a spacious entry with a view of the home’s unique staircase. Heart pine floors in most of the house, ten total fireplaces (with one that is used), four plus bedrooms and four full baths. The current card room (former music room) features an oil painted ceiling that has remained undisturbed. Room to mingle or plenty of privacy with two finished floors of living space. This estate’s grand-scale and handcrafted details lend a magical quality to this timeless piece of art. Multiple outbuildings to include potential guest quarters, shed, barn, an additional 2 room home used for storage. Come see this one for yourself. If you are looking to leave the city and settle down in a small town, then Washington is for you. Located within walking distance of the town square featuring coffee, shopping, and dining. *** Centrally located between Athens and Augusta. 40 min to Athens, 45 Min to Columbia County Amazon (Ft. Gordon)
