Cascading water falls from a simple river rock basin into a sparkling pool, delighting the senses and tempting toes.
The Hammond-Preston House is much more than alluringly landscaped grounds and agrarian buildings--the property also features a beautifully maintained portion of the historic roadbed for Old Williamston Road, a popular 19th century farm-to-market thoroughfare connecting the town of Anderson with the stately farms and quiet meadows of the neighboring countryside.
The meticulously restored 1928 Stables hosts a pleasant chapel that offers the perfect spot for intimate nuptials. The Stables overlook the traditional Southern bourbon burial area and supplies a convenient and spacious catering kitchen.
Tranquil botanical gardens boasting native Southern plantings are complemented by two outdoor stone fireplaces and two large fire pits and are equipped to appeal to an array of guests with a children's play area and lawn games such as cornhole, horseshoes, and badminton.
Graceful swings and comfortable benches thoughtfully placed around the peaceful grounds present a multitude of quiet conversation areas.
Accessible from across the Upstate and Northeast Georgia, the Hammond-Preston House offers a picturesque escape from the ordinary. And certainly a once in a lifetime event deserves nothing less than extraordinary!
