Nestled in a beautiful wooded setting in the middle of historic Thomasville lies the Reid House. Constructed in 1901, the home is a wonderful example of classic, southern architecture complete with white columns along the front porch and side veranda. The property is wonderfully situated at the end of an azalea and palm tree lined drive and sits beneath centuries old majestic, moss covered live oaks. The interior has beautiful heart pine floors, tall ceilings, originals mantels, and custom millwork and includes gracious 3 bedrooms with 3.5 baths. The floor plan includes a formal living area, study, sitting rooms, formal dining room, custom kitchen, and butlers pantry. The expansive porches overlook the 15+ acre estate. The property also includes a 2 bedroom guest cottage, and another historic home that has been moved to the property and awaits restoration.
The landscape includes 8 acres of manicured lawns with several spinneys of towering pines and magnolias rimmed with azaleas and camellias. Live Oaks are a dominant landscape feature in both the open lawns and woodland garden which is home to a native coffee plant and several ornamental bamboos. The Reid House was once a farm and the openness of its lawns and woodlands today returns it to a c.1950 grace. The current driveway lined with palms and azaleas was also planted at that time by members of the Reid family, who built and managed the house and adjoining farmland from its inception through almost a hundred years. The remaining 15 acres retains a unique position almost park-like in its current residential setting.
