The home was built in the mid-1800’s by Judge Andrew S. Fulton. The home is of classic antebellum architecture with a spacious foyer, grand staircase, an entry porch with columns and balcony with cast iron railings. The original structure was post and beam with wooden pegs. On the main floor, the walls had handmade bricks for added support. The walls consisted of the exterior hand sawed wood, a middle layer of mud and horse hair connected to oak wood lathe and an interior wall of plaster.
Beginning in 2000 the home was restored and now offers 4,600± SF with 5 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The original section of the home has 10’ ceilings as well as the two added wings. There are 8 working fireplaces with original mantels, and 2 French doors on the lower floor between the kitchen and dining room. Most of the interior doors are original and 8’ tall. The original wooden floors remain intact and are refinished. Custom molding was made to duplicate the original design. Both the main floor and upstairs double doors are custom made from Honduran Mahogany. The kitchen was modernized with custom made cherry cabinetry and granite countertops. The oven, gas cook top, microwave and exhaust hood are all stainless steel Dacor appliances. The main floor offers a master bedroom with a full bath and Jacuzzi tub, a laundry room and Finnish sauna. The hot water system is powered by 2 “on demand” electric heaters. A whole house water filtration system is coupled with the water softener. In 2010 the home was painted and air conditioning was added. The rear of the home has a large concrete patio with steps to the lawn. There are over 4 acres of lawn surrounding the home and outbuildings and the beginnings of a vineyard with the posts and wires installed. The additional acreage, 34.573, is a mixture of white pine and hardwood forests. This property was previously owned by the Dixon Lumber Company and was managed for timber production.
