The Hart Home located two miles from beautiful, historic downtown LaGrange, Georgia, this
magnificent and pristine property is completely move-in ready.
Perched on a gentle hill, the
stately brick home is made even more eye-catching by a splashing front yard fountain. Enter the
circular drive by one of two security gates, as the property is enclosed by brick and wrought iron
walls. Park in the three-car garage in the rear or under the columned portico in front of the main
Upon entering the main vestibule, you will be dazzled by the free-standing
semi-spiral staircase, the marble flooring, and the three increasingly ornate chandeliers that light
your way through the foyer and into the Grand Hall. Original owner Emmett Hart envisioned a house
built like a striking commercial structure, and wanted to ensure that guests would be "blown away"
by the spectacular, immense dome of the rotunda. Master Builder Ben Parham painstakingly crafted
this crowning achievement and made Mr. Hart's vision a reality throughout the house.
In your progress through the foyer, you'll pass a superlative library with floor to ceiling shelves and
cabinets made of Honduras mahogany on your right, and a carpeted living room / dining room suite
with gas log fireplace on your left. You'll discover that the Grand Hall is perfect for
entertaining with its mahogany walk-in bar complete with mirrored shelving, custom cabinets,
icemaker, and sink. You'll admire the Hearth Room and its impressive gas log fireplace. You'll spy
the beautiful rear courtyard (complete with a second fountain) beyond the Hall.
The hall connects to the sitting room and kitchen, which offers a full complement of modern appliances
including an icemaker and side-by-side refrigerator-freezer. Extensive shelving and cabinetry (as
well as a built-in desk) adorn all of the walls. To the rear of the kitchen is a separate office
area with security cabinets and a vault.
On the other side of the grand hall, opposite the
living room, is a guest suite and full bath. Beyond this area is the master bedroom, which features
huge walk-in closets, two (his and hers) large baths, another gas fireplace, and a separate spa room
which also opens onto the back courtyard.
Other ground floor amenities include two additional half-baths, elegant window treatments, and exquisite crown moulding. Rich creams dominant the color
scheme and make the various areas bright and spacious. Subtle touches of forest greens and rosy
reds add interest to the marble flooring of the hall and some of the drapery.
Upstairs, the landings with parlor areas offer a lovely view of the hall and courtyard. Two bedrooms mirror one
another on either side of the staircase. Each features its own full bath, walk-in closet, and stone
balcony with a view of the mature and beautifully manicured front lawn, which is maintained with the
help of a sprinkler system.
This house provides several other impressive touches, including a
slate roof with a lifetime guarantee, copper gutters, a whole-house back-up generator, and a large,
unfinished room over the garage which could become a playroom, game room, media room, or whatever
your heart desires.
