The stunning house was custom built by Henley Brothers in 1995. Features: a chef's kitchen that can serve as a gathering place for 20 people. A great room featuring stacked stone fireplace and vaulted ceilings opens onto a covered patio with sweeping views of Lookout Mountain. The huge master suite has ''his and her'' en-suite bathrooms and dressing areas, wood beamed vaulted ceilings and a private balcony. The formal dining room, with polished heart-pine floors and high ceilings can accommodate a table for 14 or more. Living room features a fireplace with ''Georgia peach'' granite hearth, high ceilings and wide plank heart pine floors. It doesn't take long to realize the owners spent years designing this home built on a steel and concrete foundation out of lumber milled on-site from "sinker" cypress logs (some 500+ years old) brought to the farm from the Pearl River at the site of the old Ford plantation. The interior details include balcony railings of antique hand-wrought iron and antique pocket doors from the Garden District of New Orleans, wide-plank polished heart pine floors from the Washington Street Wharf in New Orleans and many other architectural antiques. The unfinished basement is 5293 sq ft with a full bath, workshop area and garage parking for 3+ vehicles. Remaining farmland parcel is 179.28 acres. Property includes stocked pond, picnic shelter, and a fishing pier with a gazebo. Approximately half of the property is cleared and is currently in use as a pasture. Remaining property is wooded with old growth of hardwoods and pine trees.
