Lovely “Painted Lady” in Nelson to Have New Owner

by Don Martin ~ June 6th, 2013

Just for the uninitiated, “a Painted Lady” is an affectionate name for beautiful old Victorian homes that were often painted in pastel colors. You can find whole blocks of them in older Southern cities like Savannah or Charleston.

This lovely example is a 1930’s vintage beauty, which reportedly served as the Boarding House for the teachers hired for children of the workers employed by the Georgia Marble Company. It would certainly appear that the fireplace is adorned with Etowah Pink marble from this area. The front steps and steps coming up from the hill clearly came from the local mine.

I have been working with this client for a long time and am delighted to have assisted her in finding and purchasing her dream home.

Maybe I can help you find yours too.

See ya ’round the mountains,

Don
