Property History
Original portion of house built by Billy Hoxley. It was purchased and extensively remodeled in 1837 by Dr. Fielding Ficklen who combined the original structure with his plantation house moved from 7 miles away by ox cart.

Verena Davis briefly stayed at Holly Court while she waited for her husband Jefferson Davis (president of the Confederacy) who was fleeing capture by Union Forces.

The Confederacy was dissolved in Washington, GA in 1865. There remain rumors that the Confederate treasury remains buried somewhere near Washington.

 
Property Description
Two Federal plain style homes are combined. There are 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms plus 2 half baths. Formal rooms include a ladies and gentlemen's parlor, a smaller parlor and a large dining room that seats 20 with additional tables. Gleaming original heart pine floors throughout except for bathrooms and a newer addition added around 1960. Ten foot ceilings with triple crown molding throughout. Antique and reproduction crystal and brass chandeliers as well as additional period lighting. Seven fireplaces have been restored and converted to gas.

The 1.83 lot is extensively landscaped with many types of mature trees and extensive holly, camellia and rose bushes as well as a formal garden, grape arbor and 3 outbuildings including a large dove cote and carriage house. There is a very large front porch and side patio and outdoor lighting has been updated. The property is largely fenced.

 
Additional Notes
Holly Court is located in historic Washington GA, approximately 3 blocks from the town square.

The property was placed on the Historic Register in 1972. The property, town and surrounding area has an extensively documented connection to the Civil War as well as one Revolutionary War site nearby.

Holly Court operated as a successful bed and breakfast for approximately 12 years. It was extensively renovated in 2004 with new wiring, plumbing, bathrooms (including 2 with jetted tubs) and kitchen. Two of the 3 HVAC units have been replaced within the last 5 years. Telephone system for intercom and outside calls is installed and it is WiFi ready.

Holly Court is an exceptional venue for entertaining and has hosted many weddings as well as other large and small events throughout the years.
