Description

A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to own one of Florida's historically prominent estates, the Wardlaw-Smith-Goza Mansion, generally known as the Smith Mansion, is an esteemed Antebellum home in Madison, Florida with a rich history dating back to the mid 1800's. Originally built by Benjamin Wardlaw in 1860 and designed by William Hammerly, a prominent architect from Virginia, the two-story structure epitomizes the popular Greek Revival style revered in the Southern states at the end of the 19th century. With 20 pillars soaring 40 feet high and a wrap-around porch on all four sides, the property is surrounded by awe-inspiring 200 year-old oaks, cypress trees, gardens, a guest house, and a grand circle driveway to accommodate family and guests...Inside, with 20 foot ceilings, extra large windows, and eight fireplaces, the home is considered a perfect example of an elegant historic Southern estate. The handmade, original, curved staircase is made from reclaimed 200-year old mahogany and the home is adorned with antique chandeliers offering soothing illumination in many of the rooms. The bright, spacious interior with its library, parlor, 5 beds and 5 baths, along with the lush, expansive grounds, is a perfect setting for hosting large gatherings and celebrating significant life events. Having undergone numerous renovations in its one hundred-fifty-plus years as a home to prominent families, modern luxuries have been couched in historic foundations: full air conditioning, dimming lights and chandeliers, a solar pumped fountain, and a new guesthouse to name a few. However, the jewel of the renovations is the ultra-modern bespoke kitchen designed and engineered by esteemed kitchen maker Fraser James of the UK. Boasting two professional grade convection ovens, 3 refrigerators, a hammered copper extra large basin sink, all punctuated by a glass stovetop set in a stunning granite countertop, the kitchen is a chef's paradise. For all the above reasons, the estate was selected over these years to be the location of formal events, the set of feature-length documentaries, and was even personally selected by Marcus Lemonis himself for his NBC show The Profit. The luxurious mansion remains a piece of history, being added to the acclaimed U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1972, and is now recorded by the Historic American Buildings Survey. The Wardlaw-Smith-Goza Mansion is a once-in-a-lifetime property rich in history and poised for a new beginning. Welcome to your next chapter.
