The Leitner-Norris Home on Alexander
201 South Alexander Avenue
Historic Washington, Georgia
$385,000! / Open to OFFERS!
|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.
|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. |
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. |
The home passed through generations of the Brown family until 1993 when it was purchased by the late J. Carlton Norris whose legacy lives on and who also was so much a part of the preservation of one of Georgia’s finest Historic properties.
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.
|Off 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!

Stunning Greek Revival
c.1787 / c.1807
208 East Liberty Street HISTORIC Washington, Georgia
National Register of Historic Places
Architects, as well as the casual visitor, are stunned by the “audacious bulk” of this magnificent house which somehow also manages to be a house of grace, beauty and distinction. They marvel that it sits so forthrightly and imperiously on the street, not realizing that in early days there was no Liberty Street and the house had a wide lane in front leading to Main Street (then the Augusta Road and now Robert Toombs Avenue.
Architects and visitors also marvel that two houses could so successfully be put side by side to form one great town house. The two striking red front doors with their arched settings, the fanlights and the broad, dentiled entablature catch the eye. The two federal houses were joined with a wide hall and unified by the addition of the Doric peristyle colonnade and the wrap around piazza.
This magnificent Federal architecture-style home was built in 1787 and underwent a Greek Revival architecture-style makeover in 1841 which included the addition of the columns by Aaron A. Cleveland , that gracefully wrap around the home. The stately home is encircled by a balustrade Doric portico and balcony . The original cottage was built by William Stith , one of the first judges in Georgia.
When the Honorable Duncan Campbell came to Washington in 1807 to teach in the Young Ladies’ Academy he bought the existing cottage and began its enlargement. It was here, in the eastern section of the home, that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Archibald Campbell was born in 1811. Andrew Green Semmes, of the distinguished Baltimore family, bought the house in 1817 and it was most likely his son, Judge Albert Gallatin Semmes, who saw to the design of the western part of the edifice.
The home was the residence of U.S. Supreme Court Justice and C.S.A. Assistant Secretary of War John Archibald Campbell . The interior of the home shares the same stunning beauty, grace and distinction as the exterior with all the qualities that evoke an ambience of the genteel South and a by-gone era. Richly carved mantels, plastered walls, shimmering chandeliers, towering ceilings, glistening wood floors, graceful archways and an elegantly rising staircase are but a few of the incredible features of the interior.
The lower level of the home is not only stunning, but warm and cozy with a combination of exposed wood beams, rock and brick floors. There one finds a most inviting and wonderfully designed kitchen and den combination with fireplaces, the kitchen fireplace adorned with the sparkle of copper cookware. There is also a separate housekeeper/caretakers apartment on the lower level with separate outside entry.
The main level of the home boast a wide center hall flanked on each side by formal parlors, library, formal dining and a bright sunlit serving, sitting area that spans the entire width of the home on both the second and third level. (It is a most welcoming entry foyer on the lower level with white washed massive exposed beams). The expansive bank of windows and doors that can be opened to warm Georgia breezes and the smells of magnolias, tea olives & camellias offer a pleasing interchange between indoors and outdoors as one overlooks beautifully landscaped grounds with walkways, ornate statues and gurgling fountains.
The top level of the home also has two spacious master bedroom suites with elegant spacious baths (one with fireplace!) Both Master suites open to the amazing third level sun room sitting areas. There is also a wonderful third bedroom and bath on that level. An early intriguing staircase leads to the attic! An ELEVATOR services all levels of the home. The home is approximately 6,800 square feet and is situated in a very private setting on a 1.06 lushly landscaped lot.
There is a lovely carriage house (barn) and other dependencies on the property. It is within walking distance of the Historic Town Square, Shops, Restaurants, Museums and the oldest public library in Georgia. Elegance and comfort dwell harmoniously here… Striking architectural features in a truly hard to find Historic Treasure.
