Finn's 1930 house for sale named after Georgia on my Mind song

By Helen Geraghty

Built in the year the original version of Georgia on my Mind was recorded, this house still carries the song in its name.

Georgia, at Dover Road, Sandwich, was built in 1930, the year the song was written and recorded by Hoagy Carmichael. He had a sister named Georgia, but it became a hit again for Ray Charles, a native of the state of Georgia, in 1960.

Priced at £750,000, with estate agent Finn's, the five-bedroom detached house comes with beautiful landscaped gardens and views across farmland. A plaque records the build date and the house name.
