About Elizabeth Tedder
I have an appreciation for things of the past and history. But I also like my modern conveniences. My gardens started from nothing and have evolved over the last 31 years. It is a dream of a lifetime.
Elizabeth Tedder purchased this Apartment in 1983
Why Elizabeth Tedder chose Newnan
It was a chance of a lifetime to restore a plantation house and start the garden on a blank page and create my own heaven on earth. The 5 acres of gardens are nationally recognized and are open to the public only once a year. You can enjoy your coffee in any of several seating areas every morning. Also an opportunity to restore a former slave house and build the Carriage House using recycled lumber and fittings from several local homes.
What makes this Apartment unique
In the southern country but within close proximity of Atlanta, Newnan, nationally recognized Serenbe community. A place to see chickens peacock, special Belted Galloway cows. If you are lucky you may see a flock of turkeys or a red fox in the fields
