If you are driving down Pine Grove Road at Reynolds Lake Oconee, you will not miss the historic Jackson House in its idyllic setting, sitting on over five acres of beautiful land with water views. Respectful of this home’s historic origin, the home belonged to the Reynolds family who developed the first-class golf and lake community. It was recently moved and restored by Kimberly and Christian Bennett, keeping its elegance and high-quality features while adding the conveniences of today’s lifestyle.
The Bennetts are not new to home restoration and have preserved many homes, but “The Jackson House on Dogwood Drive” was truly special as it was an opportunity to own a beautiful piece of Reynolds Lake Oconee history. It was moved in one united piece, all 400 tons and 7 fireplaces, without even breaking a window! “In order to move the house in one piece, we had to disconnect and take out all plumbing & electrical. After complex mathematical calculations, specially engineered steel beams that were 60 feet long & 2 feet wide were brought in to carry the estimated 400 ton load,” said Kimberly.
“The Jackson House on Dogwood Drive” is a shining example of true Steamboat Gothic style and is one of only a few surviving homes of this type left in the United States. It is a special opportunity to own this iconic home, minutes from world-class amenities, on over five acres of beautiful property in Reynolds Lake Oconee.
The home is being offered at $1,695,000 by Luxury Lake Oconee Real Estate Group.
