Southern grace, timeless elegance, and nothing short of magical. Introducing "The Columns". Built by James Shropshire Thompson in 1850, this estate has been enjoyed by 7 generations of Thompsons. Sitting atop 86 storybook acres, with sweeping views down the valley and across 4 counties. The design of the house is the traditional four over four square, with center halls flanked on each side by large rooms. A few additions were added throughout the years to include the main bedroom suite and additional baths. A gorgeous mahogany staircase leads to the second hall with 4 bedrooms and a third full bath. The home is steeped with historical architectural integrity including heart pine floors, soaring 14 foot ceilings, grand 12 foot pocket doors, 10 original fireplaces, and dramatic interior moldings. The Columns has been lovingly restored to provide modern comforts, while preserving its historic integrity. The manicured grounds include mature trees, gardens, outbuildings, and dotted with reminders of its past like the remains of the granite fence posts and iron front gate. Homes like this stand the test of time. Significant and authentic, and ready to open its doors to welcome a new family and a new beginning. Welcome home to "The Columns".
