Wood-clad walls, ceilings, and floors give the house a sense of historic charm. Hanging lights by Georgia artist Eloise Pickard.
Showy Stairs Here's a first impression: The front hall graciously welcomes with an architecturally point-on gas lantern, divided sidelights, and crisp white wainscoting.

LUXURY TOUCH: Hardwood floors throughout the home are made from black walnut.
