Blackberry Creek Farm is located in the beautiful Appalachian foothills of northwest Georgia in Floyd County. Rome, just minutes from the front gate, is the largest city in northwest Georgia with about 36,000 inhabitants. With the Etowah and the Oostanaula Rivers meeting here to form the Coosa River, the area has attracted travelers and settlers for centuries. It is a vibrant small city with a strong arts community, a passion for history, regional medical hub, internationally recognized Darlington school, and exceptional recreational opportunities.
The main entrance to Blackberry Creek Farm is only 63 miles from Atlanta’s northern I-75/I-285 interchange. Just north of Rome, the Richard B. Russell Regional Airport (RMG) has a 6,006 foot runway for private aviation and is located 15 miles from Blackberry Creek Farm.
Northwest Georgia’s climate is classified as humid continental. There are four distinct seasons in Floyd County, with some of the best weather in the spring and fall months. Although winters are colder in northwestern Georgia than in other parts of the state, they are not severe. Winter snowfall very rarely occurs. The average high in the summer months is in the upper 80s, with average lows around 70. The average highs in the winter months are in the mid-50s, with average lows in the mid-30s. Annual rainfall is 54 inches.
The houses, barn, and grounds at Blackberry Creek Farm are all well-done with an eye for detail, function, and comfort.
The 4,184± square foot main house is a southern style farmhouse with a deep wrap around porch. The house is three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms, and has a recently-renovated gourmet kitchen featuring high-end appliances and finishes. The bright and cheerful family room with floor-to-ceiling windows allows for great views of the mountains and, located just off the kitchen, is the go-to gathering spot in the house for friends and family. The first-floor master bath has also recently been renovated to include a soaking tub, large walk-in shower, custom cabinets, and heated stone floors. The two-car garage is attached by a covered walkway and has a second-story private apartment views of the mountains and of the beautiful geometric boxwood gardens.

This 1,288± square foot house has a first-floor master suite and a loft with beds and a bathroom upstairs. The great room has a wood-burning fireplace flanked by bookshelves and windows.

Vehicle fueling needs, whether farm or personal automobiles, are handled by two five-hundred-gallon tanks enclosed in a secure structure. There is also an electric vehicle charging station located in the main house garage.
The Coosa River makes up the entire northern property line and offers both motorized and non-motorized boating, with a public boat ramp conveniently located just one mile from the property’s entrance.
