From the Zillow listing:


Towering over the corner of Shotwell and West Streets since 1904, this home is a local landmark and a piece of Bainbridge history! Thomas C. Wainman, a northerner who moved South in 1893, erected the four story Wainman Hotel across the street in 1900, and using the same style architecture, built this transitional style brick home for his family. For 2 years, he acquired lumber, including the rare quarter sawn curly pine accents throughout the home. The bricks were locally made from Decatur County clay by L. F. Patterson. In 1918, ownership passed to Arthur S. Carr, then in 1931 to his son-in-law, Gilbert H. Gragg. It remained in the Gragg family until 1993 when it became J. Victoria’s Gifts & Antiques, and was reverted back to a family residence in 1997. Your family could be just the fourth family to live in this stunning home! Every part of this home was built with the details in mind and state of the art technology of the time. Gorgeous hardwood floors, original windows, pocket doors, original hardware, incredible trim work, original radiators (disconnected), original marble fireplace surrounds, huge kitchen, original breakfast room, laundry room/prep kitchen with half bath, and overall an unbelievably modern and functional floor plan for a family, including both an upstairs and downstairs primary bed and bath. The foyer light fixture was Mrs. Gragg’s mother’s from the 1850s, and the living and dining room chandeliers were imported from France. The 1960s Schumacher wallpaper is in great condition, 1960s metal cabinetry, the sunroom and patio overlooking the fenced backyard, and an historic carriage house with upstairs apartment in need of lots of TLC but full of potential. This is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire one of the most stately, beautiful, and historically significant homes in Bainbridge. Call to schedule your appointment today! Note, potential buyers will need to have a lender’s pre-approval or proof of financing to schedule a showing.
