My Notes
Edit
For two centuries, many a distinguished Southern lady & gent have lived within the grandeur of the Leitner-Norris Home, strolling the beautifully landscaped grounds, entertaining within its walls, and leaving a lasting impression of Southern Hospitality on this fabulous Federal-style Historic home.
It commands its place on a spacious yet private & inviting 1.21 acre corner lot in the town?s Historic District with close proximity to Museums, the quaint Town Square, Shops, Restaurants, the State's oldest Public Library, and wonderful streets lined with beautiful historic homes ranging from columned mansions to charming cottages.
Over the years, many well-known Washingtonians have graced the halls of the L eitner-Norris Home giving it a storied local past. Archibald Simpson Wingfield, a planter who used this home as his town residence, added the second story to the home in 1837, "the year cotton prices hit a record high." It is also believed that Wingfield attached the rooms now used as the kitchen and the den during his ownership. In 1863, David G. Cotting, who served in the Confederacy & later became Georgia's Secretary of State under Rufus Bullock was the home?s next owner followed by Green P. Cozard. Considered quite the wealthy character, Cozard is rumored to have funded the first professional baseball team in the late 1870's.
The home was purchased in 1881 by Enoch G. Binns whose grandson was reared in the home and became a prominent Baptist clergyman, author, educator and president of William Jewell College in Liberty, Mo. Frank E. Callaway purchased the property in 1918. At the time there remained much more acreage and Mr. Callaway was said to have had milk cows in a barn on the northeast portion of the property, which is presently part of the Episcopalian Church. Callaway was Wilkes County?s Clerk of Court from 1911 to 1933. In 1949 the home was purchased by Major General Lloyd Davidson Brown and his wife Katherine. Katherine Brown was an extraordinary gardner and it is said that every prominent garden in Washington had at least "a little something" in it from Katherine's garden.
As it stands today, the home has evolved into a pristine Federal style two -story home of approximately 3,500+ square feet boasting many architectural features, including wainscoting, glistening heart-of-pine floors, lovely chandeliers, high mantles on 8 fireplaces (most fireplaces are wood burning with the Master Bedroom and Downstairs Bedroom being gas logs), and a beautiful spindled staircase with Newell posts. Large windows, many of which are floor-to-ceiling, bring in natural light throughout the home.
ff of the center hall are a formal parlor, formal dining room, large eat-in kitchen with fireplace, paneled den, gorgeous library with built-in shelves, downstairs bedroom suite, upstairs bedroom suite, additional bedroom and bath upstairs, a sun room, spacious laundry and lots of storage.
There are a total of 4.5 bathrooms in the house. The home is surrounded by gorgeous landscaped grounds, including a beautifully designed inground 40 x 20 Gunite pool with granite borders and mill stone fountain along with a spacious Garden "Tea House" (Gazebo) wonderful for entertaining or personal outdoor enjoyment.
There is also an underground irrigation system in place and a charming picket fence encompassing the rear grounds. Outbuildings include a detached garage, miscellaneous storage buildings, and the so very charming Garden "Tea House".
This is truly a MUST SEE for any Historic Home buyer!

....Priced to sell at an amazingly low $417,000.
 
What I love about the home
This grand and spacious home grew from humble beginnings. In 1814 the initial portion of the home (two rooms and a hall along with numerous outbuildings) was built by John C. Leitner with his wife Catharine. Leitner also owned several pieces of property on the Public Square and it has been said Leitner was perhaps the first real estate agent in Washington.
