Just steps away from Covington Square in picture perfect downtown Covington is a home so iconic it has been exhibited in film and television productions. "Dixie Manor" is a stunning home rich in history and widely photographed for its unique English Regency architecture and classical symmetry. This private, two-acre estate is the only brick antebellum home in Covington and, being just a few minutes on foot to dining, drinks and shopping, this location presents an extraordinary opportunity for an income-producing Bed and Breakfast - it's already approved for an AirBnb. This amazing home is rich with unique and storied features. No timber or block interior walls will be found - constructed from handmade bricks imported from England in the early 1800s, with an estimated completion date of Dixie Manor at around 1838. Her original mahogany staircase is sturdy and grand, with woodwork and chandeliers sourced from the home of Jean-Paul Gaultier in Italy. Modern luxury abounds in the bedrooms and baths as well as the gorgeous kitchen and dining area, with a home theater, gym and wine cellar. Ten decorative fireplaces add period charm, as do the 12 ft ceilings and the gorgeous, light-catching 7ft windows. Outside, more original features join more recent additions to create stunning spaces. Gated grounds with lush landscaping surround a frescoed saltwater pool and a travertine, columned portico where you'll find yet another fireplace. On the National Register of Historic Places (having been highlighted in the 2018 Fall Ramble), Dixie Manor boasts a considerable draw for visitors and tourists and is regularly featured on the Covington Ghost Tour and has been used as a filming location for popular TV shows and movies, including "The Vampire Diaries" and "The Walking Dead." Just a couple blocks from Central Park, a plethora of activities can be found without needing your car keys. Own a piece of stunning history in one of the most picturesque small towns in Georgia.
