498 S Main Street, Madison, Georgia, United States, 30650
It seems somebody has jumped at the truly rare opportunity to own and restore one of Georgia’s architectural and historical treasures, The Foster-Thomason-Miller House in Madison is an excellent example of the American Aesthetic Movement with elements of Queen Anne, Italianate & Gothic Revival styles. The derelict home recently sold for the full asking price of $449,000. The Foster-Thomason-Miller House was built c.1883 for Legare H. Foster with plans drawn by Daniel Townes. It was sold c.1889 to Robert Usher Thomason and stayed in the Thomason family until the late 1970s when it was sold to Richard and Marcia Miller. The Millers restored the nearly 6,000 square foot home in the 1980s and won the 1986 Georgia Trust State Preservation Award for their efforts. A devastating fire in the home’s updated kitchen in 2001 caused mostly smoke and water damage throughout. The property is currently owned by Friesen Real-Estate Holdings who are looking for an interested party to sign on and restore the home to its former glory. Sitting on a 1.02 acre property, the home is a treasure trove of detail with interior elements including extensive and original wood carvings, 8 spectacular mantels and 14 foot ceilings.
