This grand Georgian house was designed by Dennis & Dennis for Granby Owen. The facade is of Indiana limestone and the Williamsurg-style bricks were handmade by Bickerstaff of Columbus. In 1957 the house was purchased by Jesse G. Bowles, Jr., a Justice of the Georgia Supreme Court. Mike McCall & I were wandering down Lumpkin Street and taking in its beautiful architecture when we were lucky enough to run into Judy Bowles, who gave us a warm and welcoming tour of the house and grounds. Judy is quite passionate about her home and all the historic architecture of Cuthbert.
The formal parlor is a wonderful space, anchored by an extraordinary mantle.
The stairwell is one of my favorite features of the house.
The landing is bright and inviting.
The arch windows are also great, typical of the work of Dennis & Dennis.
The rear of the house is Judy’s favorite space, where she hosts garden parties and neighborhood get-togethers.
