Take a step back in time into the splendor and grandeur of The Rowland-Jarrett House, located in Dearing Street Historic District. Originally built facing Broad Street in 1880, this home was moved to the Dearing Street end of the property in 1900. It was significantly enlarged by the addition of a main level kitchen, second story, and a stunning wrap around front porch.
This property has been featured on the Athens-Clarke Heritage Foundation Tour of Homes twice, and once on the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation Ramble. In addition, the elaborate gardens were featured on the Piedmont Gardener’s Annual Garden Tour twice, and also photographed as the centerfold of a volume of the Southern Distinction magazine.
The main home is just over 4200 square feet with the graciously sized master suite on the main level, and 3 (or 4) additional bedrooms upstairs. Twelve foot ceilings and hardwood floors span the home, with tile floors in the 4 bathrooms. Upon entering the foyer with a heart pine stair case, you will find a stunning formal living room and dining room, both with working gas fireplaces, and a renovated kitchen overlooking the gardens from floor to ceiling windows. A bright spacious informal sitting room at the rear of the home provides a wonderful space for family gatherings or a second living space. From this room an open stairwell leads to the basement, partially finished with a handsome wine cellar/speakeasy perfect for entertaining, as well as a workout room and a full bathroom. The large sunny workout room could easily double as a home office, playroom or additional bedroom.
In 2012, the owners built a phenomenal carriage house of cedar board and batten with cypress garage doors. The garage can hold 3 cars, as one side is configured with a lift. Upstairs is an efficiency apartment with a full bath and bar kitchen with sub zero and Wolf appliances and overlooking the gardens.
The formal gardens span the property all the way from Broad Street to Dearing Street, creating a stunning backdrop for entertaining or relaxing. The gardens will delight, for each season brings about an entirely new array of flowers, colors, and fragrances. The historical integrity of this magnificent home has been celebrated and preserved by those fortunate enough to live here through the years. If these walls could talk, what a story they could tell!
