Dillard farmhouse description

'The Powell House' was built in 1885 by Civil War General Powell. He purchased 1100 acres at the foothills of the 'Blue Ridge' mountains and chose this location to take advantage of a 360 degree view and breezes that flow through the windows even on hot summer days. The perfect location to make priceless family memories.A total renovation was completed in spring of 2012 to preserve the integrity of the original farmhouse while adding additional rooms to take full advantage of the surrounding mountains. Each of the three large porches offer their own spectacular view. Evenings on the thirty foot front porch hosts a nightly summer light show by resident fire flies that take any adult back to childhood! The upstairs 24 foot porch offers breathtaking views of the North Georgia Mountains from handcrafted glider rockers that are hard to leave. From the 24 X 24 farmhouse kitchen/dining area that seats eleven to the family room that offers incredible views, there is ample room to create memories that will last a lifetime. The master bedroom with gas fireplace and private bathroom is located downstairs, as well as, a large living room with gas fireplace, additional half bath, farmhouse kitchen/dining room and washer/dryer. Upstairs are two bedrooms; one with a queen bed, another room with a set of twin beds, there is a sofa bed in the family room and another full bath for the upstairs. A baby bed is in the twin bedroom and a highchair in the kitchen for the smallest in the family to enjoy.
The acre property and house is surrounded by boxwood hedges, thus where the name of the street originated. Privacy in a country setting yet walking distance to the famous 'Dillard House' restaurant and over a dozen antique shops.

              About: I am Larry and my wife and I live in Florida. We hope you will enjoy 'The Historic Powell House' as much as our family does!

              Why Dillard:
              We have been visiting the Dillard area for more than 25 years. When we saw the 'Powell House' for the first time we instantly fell in love with it's charm. We wanted to be a part of restoring a small piece of history and share the enjoyment it provides us with others.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              If you enjoy nature, the outdoors, close proximity to stores and resturants, and getting away from a hectic lifestyle, you will enjoy 'The Powell House'.
