Stepping Into This Untouched Farmhouse From 1890 Is Like Walking Into A Time Machine

It takes a lot of work, time, and money to renovate a home, but most places need at least some basic upgrades over the years. Besides ensuring that the plumbing and electricity are working properly, these repairs help to keep everyday wear-and-tear at bay.

While one would assume that the oldest homes require more work than others, that certainly wasn’t the case for one beautiful estate in Moreland, Georgia. Though it dates back to the 1890s, this old farmhouse remains as gorgeous now as it must have been over a century ago.

It still is a bit of a fixer-upper, but whoever claims it would be starting from a great foundation! Just wait until you see the interior…

This gorgeous farmhouse in Moreland, Georgia, has been untouched since the 1890s, but it’s held up remarkably well. At 4,552 square feet, it sits on five-and-a-half acres of the countryside. Not surprisingly, it’s an extremely desirable place to live!

The farmhouse generously boasts six bedrooms, but it only offers one bathroom, which is one of a few reasons why it may be considered a “fixer-upper” by contemporary standards. Still, there’s a lot to like, such as this extravagant porch!

Part of this farmhouse’s charm is the fact that it’s such a well-preserved look at life in the 19th century. Can you imagine what living here may have been like right before the turn of the century?

The home’s kitchen is distinguished by wood paneling, while the rest of the area is painted all white. The paneling gives the space a rustic look. You can almost smell the savory, buttery aromas of good old-fashioned Southern cooking wafting through the air: fried chicken, cornbread, collard greens, and pecan pie—yum!

The family room offers plenty of space, thanks especially to its soaring ceilings. Families must have spent countless hours of quality time with each other in this place over the years!

There are several different pathways accessible from the main foyer, including a staircase that leads to the upper floor of the farmhouse. There’s a really pleasant sense of “openness” throughout, and it’s only accentuated further by the expansive windows that let in all that Georgia sunshine.

There’s no shortage of exposed wood used for the floors throughout the farmhouse. While the majority of the home is wood-paneled or painted in light, neutral colors, a handful of rooms—such as this one—make lovely use of color.

The long, vertical windows are representative of the style that was popular among farmhouses of that era. They allow plenty of beautiful, natural light to float into each room.

The similarly rustic attic is quite large, presenting a great opportunity for converting it into a master bedroom or a hangout room. Potential homeowners don’t simply need to utilize it as mere storage space. The possibilities are truly endless!

With enough time and energy—not to mention a relatively small amount of money—this place can really be transformed into a contemporary home without losing its Southern charm. It might be an attractive artifact from the past, but with just a few modern upgrades, you could easily make it comfortable by today’s standards!

Even without some modern luxuries, anybody would be lucky to live in this house as it stands. Just imagine how stunning it will be with a little bit of work!
