Realtor, Adelle Dennis of Rex Property & Land negotiated the sale on behalf of KHK Augusta, LLC, a private partnership dedicated to saving Augusta’s historic architectural treasures.
Prior to the sale, a permanent preservation easement which will be held by Historic Augusta, Inc. was placed on the property. Additionally, the new owners agreed to complete a renovation schedule prepared by Historic Augusta.
The Rice House was built by Patrick H. Rice in the 1890’s as his personal home. Rice was a well known Augusta citizen and Catholic Layman. He served on many local committees and was devoted to bettering Augusta’s communities. His home is a beautiful example of the popular Queen Anne style, equipped with a corner turret, second story gable porch, weatherboarding and wood shingles, overhanging gabled rooms, and an irregular floor plan.
The new owners are committed to restoring the house to its former glory and plan on making it their personal home, just as Patrick Rice did in the 1890’s. They will work together with Historic Augusta to ensure the key historic elements of this home is maintained throughout the restoration process. The sale and renovation work is another indication of the resurgence of the downtown Augusta historic district as a residential choice.
