THE PILLARS. Built circa 1856 by the Tyson family, this historically significant home exemplifies Greek Revival architecture from the period. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Alabama Historic Register, and the 1934 Historic American Building Survey (HABS) catalogued at the U.S. Library of Congress. Yet, The Pillars has no restrictive covenants limiting structural changes. While maintaining its historic character, The Pillars has been thoughtfully updated for comfortable living. A major renovation of all bathrooms and the kitchen was completed in 2010, along with new HVAC units and attic insulation. Additional restorations and renovations have been completed within the past two years, including foundational supports, full interior and exterior painting, a new septic system, spray foam insulation in the crawl space and removal/repair of an incongruous addition. The Pillars is a 2-story heart pine wood frame home with 2 porticos. The west portico is supported by six fluted Doric columns (original) while the south portico has four identical Doric columns. Both porticos have original balustraded balconies. On the exterior, one sees original wood shutters, original 6-over-6 windows (recently reglazed), four sets of original double French doors and original dentil molding. Porches have white marble flooring. The interior includes original heart pine flooring throughout, original intricate millwork, original solid wood interior doors, original fireplace mantles and the original entry staircase. The first floor has 12’ ceilings. The second floor has 14’ ceilings. The kitchen boasts high-end Thermador appliances including a six-burner commercial range and hood vent, refrigerator/freezer and dishwasher. There is an adjoining breakfast room. A large kitchen pantry houses an additional freezer and ample shelving. A new fence along the road frontage with a solar-powered electronic entry gate allows limited access to the property.https://youtu.be/DdxjUmUV5Pc
