    Description

    Built in 1898, the stunning G.W.Gignilliat House is a landmark in the city of Seneca. Situated on 3 acres of park-like grounds that were originally part of the Gignilliat cotton farm and vineyard, the property has spacious privacy as well as proximity to the town. The Queen Anne Victorian house is little changed after 120 years, and the current owners have focused on preservation and restoration. A trained civil engineer, George Warren Gignilliat constructed the house with a bearing wall foundation, and evidence suggest that the architect was George Barber of Knoxville Tennessee. Most of the old paint has been removed from the siding and shingle exterior, and the color scheme has been restored to the original pattern, revealing the delightful detail. A beautiful new Da Vinci simulated slate roof has just been installed on the main roof. The house is grand. The 13 room, two-story living area is 5000 square feet, and there is a fully floored attic. Ceilings are 12 high on the ground floor and 11 on the second floor. There are original stained-glass windows in the foyer, parlor and stairwell. The 8 oak fireplace mantles and hearth tiles were imported from England. (These were used to burn coal, and are sealed and inoperable today.) The 1 oak flooring in the public rooms was installed in 1927 when this material became popular locally. The private rooms retain the original "heart pine flooring. All rooms have multiple large windows with delightful views of lawn and forest. Most of the rooms have been painstakingly restored, with old paint removal from plaster ceilings and walls, and from doors and trim.Electrical and plumbing systems have been updated. The house retains a fully functioning, gas fired steam heating system with radiators in every room. Upstairs, two new heat pump units provide air-conditioning and supplemental heating. Two mini split units are located on the first floor in the kitchen and home office. A derelict carriage house was replaced in 1989 with a two-story garage apartment building that has exterior styling which matches the main house. The apartment is 800 square feet with living area, kitchen and bathroom. This is a unique property, rich with history, charm
