Known throughout all of Marietta and beyond, WELCOME to the “McNeel House.” Your chance to own your own piece of history. The story of this home began nearly 100 years ago in 1922. Mr. & Mrs. McNeel built this home just after their wedding. As newlyweds, they set out to plant deep roots of family while incorporating their business into their home. M.L. McNeel Jr. was the owner of the McNeel Marble Company. Because of this, many of the home’s original features include marble from his company. You will find it throughout the home as well as on the marble steps down the front entry to the breezeway, the granite picnic table in the backyard, and in the underpinnings of the basement. The McNeels were active and proud members of their community. Mrs. McNeel was even an avid equestrian as part of what is now the current workshop and storage area was first used as a horse stable. To no surprise, they also had a green thumb as the acreage was used as a pecan orchard, with an abundant harvest to share. This home is perfectly tucked in the charming and sought-after Cherokee Street historic district, walking distance from the Marietta Square. This home, along with few others, are known as Cherokee Heights, the first modern planned subdivision in Marietta from 1924. Cherokee Heights is also known for being the location of the famous and highly attended Cherokee Heights Annual Art Festival. Because of its exclusive location and esteem, this home was distinctly chosen in 2009 to be included in the Marietta Christmas Pilgrimage Home Tour, only the second house in the original subdivision to receive such a high honor. As you arrive at this exquisite developer’s home on a spacious corner lot, you will have the option of two driveways, an upper and lower. Quick to catch your eye will be the brick breezeway, located in both the front and rear of the home, sure to please all guests walking up to your prized historic gem. You are sure to entertain many happy guests as you open up French doors to welcome them onto the spacious, screened-in porch especially in the upcoming fall season. The screened-in porch opens up to the veranda that runs the length of the front of the home. Walk into the home of your dreams and be met with the perfect combination of cherished historic preservation, as well as modernizations for upgraded living. Enjoy the beckoning newness of fresh paint throughout, both interior and exterior, including the workshop. Look down and appreciate the preservation of the original red maplewood, white maplewood, and pine floors that have been freshly sanded and finished. You will be quick to appreciate original crown molding throughout the home, as well as original pocket doors leading from the kitchen to the living room, a subtle reminder of times gone by. The large entertainer’s kitchen is sure to become the gathering place for friends and family, complete with a large island to make for beautiful spreads, and plenty of cabinet space to keep all your supplies organized. Notice the new stainless-steel appliances, including the double oven, will help your kitchen look and run at its very best. The family room speaks for itself with coffered ceilings and one of the three original fireplaces and built-in shelving. Imagine this quaint space during the holidays! The master has all the modern and historic perfection you could imagine with its beautiful private bathroom, complete with a garden tub. Appreciate all the spacious features it offers, including a walk-in closet for all the storage you may need. In your private backyard, you will see the double covered carport to serve your needs as well as a workshop and storage area, complete with electricity. In the rear of the home you will also see an additional private entry that leads right to the mudroom and laundry, perfect for those days working in the yard! This home is a true gift to all who have lived here.
