Real Estate Crush ... Mimosa Hall


Yesterday was a fabulous day.  I started off super productive at the house tackling our pantries and ended it with a volleyball double header and a fantastic dinner at Pizzeria Lucca in nearby Roswell.   As we drove home last night with the windows down and the sunset I was truly just one happy girl. The drive home took us along the Chattahooche River which was truly stunning at sunset. Add in some 80's number one hits and all was truly bliss.



As we were parking at dinner last night the fence on the opposite side of the street caught my eye.  I love a white fence and something about this one was so classic and charming. I stopped to snag a few photos and then on the way back to the car noticed the property was for sale.  After stalking the listing I fell even harder for this amazing home and the land.  Someone will absolutely inherit an amazing piece of real estate as the home and the grounds are immaculate as you will see. This incredible private residence comes complete with nine acres of gardens complete with a pool and grist mill renovated into a barn. It's truly fabulous!

The Neoclassical home built in 1840 by John Dunwoody for himself and his wife.  Originally named Phoenix Hall because of a fire that broke out during the home's housewarming party.  The estate was purchased in 1867 by General Andrew Jackson Hansell and his wife Jane.  The Hansell's raised their family in the home after relocating from Marietta.  General Hansell worked for Roswell Manufacturing Company and responsible for rebuilding the mills having been previously destroyed during the Civil War. Named Mimosa Hall for the large number of mimosa trees on the property the home has housed six generations of Hansells. Purchased in 1918 by Neel Reid who designed the gardens and added the fieldstone driveway and courtyard.  The home was purchased once again by a Hansell in 1947 who spotted its for sale sign and was thrilled to once again have the estate in the Hansell family. Currently the incredible property is owned by Sally Hansell who is ready to downsize. I can only imagine how she feels about selling such a treasured family home.

Today I introduce you to Mimosa Hall in Historic Roswell, Georgia.  You will love it as much as I did yesterday!
