Area Description: Burke Mansion is located in the heart of the Historic Intown District in historic downtown Macon, Georgia. Only 75 minutes south of Atlanta and located logistically in the center of the state, Macon is a hot spot for day trippers, business travelers, and snowbirds heading south to Florida from the Northeastern U.S. It is also the natural stopping point for travelers North of Atlanta heading to Disney World, Sea World and other Florida and Southwestern Georgia coastal towns. Less than ¼ of a mile from both Interstate 75 and Interstate 16, the Property is ideally located to serve the more than a million travelers coming through Macon annually. The Property is minutes from Navicent Medical Center, Navicent Children’s Hospital, Mercer University, Mercer Medical School and is in walking distance to Mercer Law School and many downtown venues.
Site Description: Originally built in 1887, the property is located at 1085 Georgia Avenue, Macon, GA and is a 5-guest room boutique bed and breakfast. The total building square footage of the main building is approximately 11,000 sq. ft. and the Cottage is approximately 1,836 sq. ft. The buildings are situated on approximately .33 acres of land.
Structural Description: Burke Mansion is a beautifully constructed 3-story Queen Anne Victorian bed and breakfast, with a separate newly renovated 2-story carriage house (the Cottage). The Property was originally designed in 1887 by architect DB Woodruff, expanded in 1905 and then remodeled in 1917 by architect Neil Reid, at which time the first residential elevator in Macon was installed. The ground floor has 13’ ceilings, rich moldings, stunning parquet floors and much of the original hardware. The main stair case has rich ornamentation and is quite charming. Major J. Morris Bivings Cottage (the former carriage house) located just to the east of the main house, was renovated initially in 1978 to a residence and then a complete rebuild in 2014 to the upscale living quarters or rental unit. The Property’s electrical, plumbing, HVAC, kitchen(s) and other systems were all updated and brought to current code. The bathrooms were all remodeled with modern tub/baths, showers and fixtures. The third floor and basement space is undeveloped but can be easily converted to living quarters.
