Pottle-West House

The Pottle-West House in downtown Warrenton dates to the early part of the 19th century. Originally designed in the Federal style, the house had an asymmetric front fa├žade and side hall floor plan. Mid-19th century additions created the more symmetric Greek Revival appearance of the house that was later altered again with the addition of a decorative folk Victorian front porch. Evidence of the house's evolution can be found in its interior, along with four bedrooms on the second floor and a large open attic on the third floor. The property, which most recently served as an antiques store, has unique original wood mantels, interior doors and double hung windows. The house is in fair condition but will require significant rehabilitation including new mechanical systems, foundation work, exterior siding repair, kitchen and bathroom improvements, and painting.

About The Georgia Trust Revolving Fund program
The Georgia Trust is a nonprofit statewide preservation organization. The Revolving Fund program was established to provide effective alternatives to demolition or neglect of architecturally and historically significant properties by promoting their rehabilitation and monitoring their preservation in perpetuity. All properties sold through this program have conservation easements in place to ensure the historic integrity of the property is retained.

Additionally, buyers are required to sign a Rehabilitation Agreement and all work done to the property must abide by the Secretary of the Interior's Standards for Rehabilitation. Copies of these documents will be provided by The Georgia Trust for review.
