This 1914 bungalow in Macon, Georgia is locally known as ‘The Glass House’ for good reason – it has large antique multi-pane glass windows throughout the house.
Oh to die for! Isn’t it heavenly? House Crazy Sarah is enamored.
The home is currently listed for sale at $315,000. It has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in over 3,000 square feet of vintage charm.
The listing makes special mention of the leaded cut-crystal window in the dining room…
The cut-crystal window casts amazing prisms all around the room every afternoon. Just magical.
Other great architectural features of this house include: pocket doors; butler doors; transom windows; crown molding; butler’s pantry; beadboard walls; coffered ceilings in kitchen and bathrooms; refinished original clawfoot tubs in both bathrooms; 13′ ceilings; and a total of 8 fireplaces!
Look at the lovely “sun room”:
Even the bedrooms are flooded with light from the ample windows…
(Look at that lazy old boy, fast asleep at the foot of the bed. Does he come with the house? It doesn’t seem like he wants to move.)
Painted wood floors in the center hall!
Not surprisingly, this gorgeous home home has been featured in several home tours.
But living in a glass house may come with some pitfalls. For one, you can’t throw stones. (Stop it House Crazy Sarah!) For two, it would be a bit like living in a fishbowl.
But the current owners have embraced the fishbowl dilemma and made it a financial boon: they have rented out their unique home on AirBnB and it brings in “over $60k annually for half year rentals making this home the top AirBnB in Macon for five years running.”
It pays to have your glass house on display! 🙂
