The Burge-Bolton House is recognized on the National Register of Historical Places and was constructed by Thomas Burge around 1830. Its place in history includes witness to Sherman's March to the Sea in November of 1864. Thomas's widow, Dolly, kept a diary which detailed daily farm life before, duri...ng, and after the occupation of the plantation by Sherman's soldiers. The diary has since been published and is housed at the Georgia Historical Society. This property consists of 60+/- acres with a creek, a mix of mature hardwoods and an established lawn which can be utilized for gardening or converted to pastureland. Originally built as a one-story dwelling with a central-hall plan, later additions lent a Neoclassical Revival-style including elements such as classical, full-width front porch with 6 Doric columns. Working, wooden louvered shutters surround the many historic wavy glass paned windows. It has 3 full bedrooms and 3 full baths with 7 fireplaces and a screened- in rocking chair porch. Easy side entry access to modern kitchen which offers a den/keeping room with fireplaces, bookcases and breakfast room. Light filled sunroom is just off owner's suite. Ample space to entertain in the large formal dining room, parlors, front porch, and gardens. Beautiful original woodworking and gorgeous chandeliers add to the overall elegance of the main house. This renowned historic property also boasts beautiful Heart pine flooring, plaster walls, sidelights & transoms, 12' high ceilings, picture molding, crown molding, chair rails, wainscoting, and Built-in bookcases in the library. The original doors in the house are hand-planed, mortise and tenon pegged four-panel doors. Former owner/resident/descendant, Dorothy Gray Bolton is quoted saying the main house "goes round in circle" as a way to describe the additional rooms that were added off the central hall over the years, mostly occurring when the house was moved across the street to its current site in the 1920s. All the sidelights, transoms, 4 over 4 windows, 6 over 6 double hung sash windows allow for an abundance of natural light to flow freely throughout the house. The foundation consists of brick piers with brick infill. There's a large walk-in, daylight basement with brick walls, canning room, concrete floor and plumbing. The main house sits above street level and is surrounded by mature landscaping and manicured formal gardens accented with fieldstone curved walls and Chippendale-style iron gates. Peppered throughout the property are historic dwellings which are unique to this site. The dollhouse is a simple style one-story structure with one bedroom, one bath and a kitchen area. The guest house (caretaker's cottage) is a bit larger with board and batten siding and has 1, possibly 2 bedrooms, kitchen area, beadboard walls, 1 full bath and an easily accessible attic area for storage or room to grow. Both houses have hardwood floors throughout. Three barns are located behind the main dwellings, but the most prominent and aesthetically pleasing is the large 2 1/2 story barn that's clad with its original wooden weatherboard, multiple 8/9 single sash windows and original barn doors. This barn is perfect for hosting events. The property has the potential to be a special events space, a corporate retreat, or a family farm escape. This beautiful property is part of the Burge Farm Historic District and is a short walk to Burge Plantation, whose members can access 1,000 acres of private hunting, shooting and a family club with first class dining/meeting facilities. Nearby Covington boasts of its shopping and dining. The property is roughly one hour from Atlanta and only 5-10 minutes' drive from I-20, making it easy to locate. Also within an hour drive are Athens, Lake Oconee, Madison, and more. Continue reading
