Welcome to Smithonia, Georgia, where history meets charm. Nestled amidst the picturesque countryside, Ansley Real Estate Christie's International presents a magnificent home built full of history and surrounded by over 10 acres of rolling hills. The famous home of James Monroe Smith, a noted agriculturalist and political giant in post Civil War Georgia politics, began construction in 1863 near the end of the war. It was well constructed out of Georgia bricks and was lined with granite panels to protect it from cannon ball penetration. Built under Smith's personal supervision, this home includes a multitude of unique artisan design and attributes that made this property one of the most prized and largest working farms east of the Mississippi River. This stately home is an ideal retreat for families seeking a serene country lifestyle or aspiring entrepreneurs dreaming of a charming bed and breakfast. Step inside, and you'll be welcomed by a sense of warmth and sophistication. The interiors boast spacious rooms adorned with hardwood flooring and soaring ceilings that create an ambiance of grandeur. The abundant natural light flooding through the large windows further enhances the inviting atmosphere. The estate features 7 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms, providing ample space for a growing family or accommodating guests. The sprawling grounds, gorgeous oak trees, and gardens surround the home. The water towner, located next to the home, features a hand-hammered copper top and was originally used to supply the home with water, as it was the first to have indoor plumbing and steam heat. The property also features converted brick barn which makes the perfect guest house or could easily be transformed into a commercial kitchen. The town of Smithonia was once the center of Smith's agricultural empire which originally included 17 miles of railroad tracks, sawmill, fertilizer plant, brickyard, cotton gin, schools, post office and hundreds of other structures. The farm and some of the surrounding land and structures were once owned by famous country singer, Kenny Rogers.
