Venture to Adairsville, GA this Memorial Day for a taste of southern history. Travel back in time to McCollum Manor, circa 1901, for an onsite antique and estate auction. Each room of the estate has been bedecked with antique furniture, artwork, Persian rugs, fine collectibles and jewelry, all reminiscent to the manor’s original construction.
Built by a Civil War veteran and skilled carpenter, McCollum Manor, rests on 7+ park-like acres and offers a blend of rich period details with modern amenities. The manor is also available for purchase and would lend itself well as an events facility, private club, retreat, or simply a magnificent estate home.
The antiques and estate auction is presented by Ken’s Antiques & Auction of Adairsville and Harry Norman agent, Lori De Pucci. Click [HERE] for a glimpse of items available for auction.

The agents enjoyed hors d`oeuvres from The Capital Grill and were able to view paintings centered on the sporting life at Gallery Rodin, the unbelievable glass works of Fräbel and everything from impressionism to abstract expressionism at Catherine Kelleghan’s.
This home is an integral part of Atlanta’s history and is one of Buckhead’s grand estates.

Recently, Rachel Callihan, a sales associate in our Blue Ridge office, was featured in an article on AJCHomefinder. Even though the housing market has been unstable, second home sales in Blue Ridge, Georgia have been going strong. Here’s a part of that article:
With families putting expensive vacations on hold and choosing to spend their money closer to home during the shaky economy, buying a vacation home within driving distance of Atlanta has become a more cost-effective alternative for some locals. And Atlantans are lucky to live close to both the mountains and the ocean, making popular destinations like the mountain towns of Blue Ridge, Georgia and Highlands, N.C., and seaside communities like Alys Beach, Fla., easily accessible.
Deb and Mike Stapleton of McDonough, managers at AT&T and the Southern Company, respectively, built a three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath vacation home in Blue Ridge in March. They has previously looked at at least 100 houses but most were more weekend homes and not quite big enough or stylish enough to eventually retire in, as the Stapletons plan to do. They finally found their dream home for $275,000. The home was built by popular local builder Keith Sumner, who uses lots of stone, local hardwoods and glass.
“He really puts a lot of detail into his houses,” said Stapleton.
Despite the economy, Callihan said the Blue Ridge real estate market is going strong.
“Even in the worst market it’s kind of boomed in downtown Blue Ridge,” said Callihan. “I think it’s because people are staying local. People from Atlanta are driving up to Blue Ridge instead of driving to Florida or going overseas.”
Callihan said 90 percent of her vacation home buyers are from Atlanta, an hour and a half away.
