Welcome to the Nicholson Mansion! This 'majestic house on the hill,' built in 1923 on the site of the original Fair Forest Plantation house, dates back to the pre-Revolutionary War era. Designed by Robert & Co. of Atlanta, the Tudor Revival Mansion was built with fieldstone taken from the property for Emslie Nicholson who was the President of textile mills in Union, Lockhart, and Monarch.
The front entrance door into the main level of the house leads from the spacious tiled porch into an open quartet of interior rooms ~ including the gracious living room with exquisite fireplace, the cozy library which serves as a reading nook, the comfortable den with dramatic draped ceiling, and the music room which is flanked by a lovely outdoor patio. The den leads into the spectacular dining room with impressive fireplace.
Along the back of the house is the fully renovated chef's kitchen with endless granite counter space for prepping and cooking, along with an island which houses the dual-fuel gas cooktop and electric oven. Upstairs are four extra large bedrooms ~ each with its own remodeled private bath ~ and two of the bedrooms adjoin spacious sleeping porches.
The lower level includes an intimate wine cellar and tasting room, along with storage space and mechanical equipment. All in all, with the gorgeous 13 acres surrounding the house and the 1/4 mile tree-lined driveway leading to the main house, the Nicholson House is large enough for everyone and everything, yet offers the unique comfort of "home."
