The Helmstead

Homerville, GA   Offered for sale at $450,000

The Helmstead has a great 30 year track record, but it's time for the owner to retire. She is selling the home fully-furnished, and you are going to love the antique furniture she has accumulated over the years.

Located near the intersections of major U.S. Highways 441 (north-south) and 84 (east-west) in Homerville, Georgia, The Helmstead is a popular stop for people traveling to Florida or to the Atlantic coast. It's also a convenient destination for tourists to the Okefenokee Swamp Parks in Fargo and Waycross.

The current owner put a lot of love into the home's construction and has kept it in excellent condition over the years. She can fill you in on all the unique details, but here are a few: the flooring consists of heart pine; the shiplap paneling was hand-selected and has no knots; the
staircase is made of mahogany from Honduras; there are 52 wooden cross doors in the house; wallpaper in the home is woven silk; AND... There is a time capsule from 1967 buried under the front porch. A TIME CAPSULE!

The backyard features an in-ground pool and several cozy seating arrangements around a lovely gazebo. With 2.6 acres to work with, the new owner will have plenty of room to add other recreational features. The current owner has made contact with the Croquet Association of America about establishing a certified court on the property, so there's an opportunity! Tennis or Pickleball, anyone?

You ought to come see this property and meet some of the friendly people of small, but progressive, Homerville, Georgia. With its great school system, full-service hospital, and manufacturing facilities for employment, Homerville is a great place to call home!
