Wingfield-Dyson Antebellum Home
on 2.5 ACRES!

c. 1790/c. 1820
215 East Robert Toombs Avenue
HISTORIC Washington, Georgia

Gracious early Classic Revival home, c. 1790/1820, nestled amid a lush 2.59 in-town acres reigns "renovation ready" along one of Washington's main Historic streets awaiting its next owner to aide in the continued perseverance of one of Georgia's grand old Historic Treasures! Majestically soaring 3 levels it is complete with FULL DAYLIGHT ENGLISH BASEMENT and numerous outbuildings on the grounds! Owned by the Dyson descendants since 1871, the home offers an EXCEPTIONAL OPPORTUNITY for the first time in some 147 years!!

This authentic historic home is said to have been completed when John Wingfield died in 1790 and it was inherited by his son, C. Wingfield. Next records show that in 1858 Isaiah Tucker Irvin purchased the home and in 1871 it sold to Marcus A. Pharr, Mrs. Beatrice DYSON Ginn's Great-Great Grandfather. It is said that young Charles Irvin who lived in the home with his family was the aide who assisted General Robert Toombs (216 East Robert Toombs Avenue currently Robert Toombs MUSEUM) in his escape from arresting Union soldiers, staying with him until he saw the General safely aboard ship for England! If only WALLS COULD TALK!

The evolution and expansiveness of the home is obvious from the side view as it has evolved into approximately 6,000 PLUS square feet; (8,186 SF according to tax assessor records) ; however, designed to be livable in much smaller accommodations with unlimited potential and possibilities to make it the HISTORIC HOME you have always DREAMED OF!

The 2.59 ACRE grounds offer an array of old fashioned plantings, trees and shrubs that avid gardeners through the centuries have cultivated....A large wrap around side and rear covered porches overlook the grounds. There are numerous outbuildings, new and old, scattered around the property including older barns, tenant quarters, and a newer barn built in 2008 approximately 36 x 60....Some fencing around the older dove cote barn (approximately 29 x 20 and painted the traditional barn red now faded)

This home truly exemplifies and emerges you in the atmosphere of the WONDERFUL Grand old Southern Mansions & their Grounds of amazing aromas... even gazing out the front double doors, the view of the once General Toombs home evokes the imagination and sends one on a journey SLIPPING BACK IN TIME!

MORE than Just a PLACE...IT's a LIFESTYLE... H I S T O R I C Washington, Georgia!


EXCELLENT Opportunity & Unlimited POTENTIAL!!
