The pre-civil war Atlanta mansion that inspired the Twelve Oaks plantation in & # 39; Gone with the Wind & # 39 ;, will be auctioned in Atlanta next month.

The country house served as a bed and breakfast for six years before the current owners Nicole and John Munn gave it a facelift of $ 2 million in 2017 and stopped for use as a private home in November.

Now new owners will have the chance to enjoy the 10,000 square foot piece of history with 12 bedrooms and 12 and a half baths.

& # 39; This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of the most beautiful and famous historic mansions in the United States, & # 39; said the auction house that led the sale.

Target Auction will open online bidding on Independence Day and the live auction will be held on July 25 from 2:00 pm Eastern on the estate.

The mansion in the National Register of Historic Places was built in 1836, about 25 years before the fighting between North and South left devastating communities.

While the Union won the battle after the battle between 1861 and 1865, the triumphant soldiers would burn the cities they spent on the ground, and the home of the Twelve Oaks in the movie suffered a similar fate, but somehow survived the real mansion.

Then, almost 100 years later, author of the original text for & # 39; Gone with the Wind & # 39; Margaret Mitchell came across a photo of the estate in the Atlanta Journal from 1939 and told the producers about the film she liked for Ashley Wilkes' house, according to Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
