Privately gated, the extraordinary Colonial Revival 2.13-acre estate simply known as The Oak House is only an hour away from Atlanta, yet worlds apart. In a city known for its grand architecture and historic residences overlooking oak-lined streets, The Oak House is the epitome of old Southern architecture.

Beyond the beautiful grounds, a 3-story high grand reception area and soaring stained-glass dome skylight make a sublime first impression. The 21,000-square-foot house comprises nine bedrooms, eleven full baths, and four half-bathrooms. Superb historical details abound, such as carved white marble fireplaces, gold leaf ceilings, custom chandeliers, semi-precious stones in bathroom fixtures, and original waxed pine paneling.

Modern conveniences include the 28-guest dining room ideal for entertaining, an expansive pool, caterer's kitchen, walk-in cooler, an exercise room with hand-painted walls, laundry/dry cleaning room, six enclosed garages, formal boxwood gardens, and more. Beyond description is a dedicated space with a fantastical train assemblage featuring thousands of figures, vehicles, rail lines, tunnels, bridges, and scenery depicting famous towns from the east to the west coast.

Built-in the 1890s and renovated in the 1990s with a purported $30Million invested in the property during its lifetime. The house has been rented and featured in three films, receiving $250K from one production alone. There is also an opportunity to acquire the horse stables and adjacent land.
