COVINGTON, Ga. -- If you’re in the market for a new home, you could have a piece of silver screen fame.
The Emmy-award winning series “In the Heat of the Night” is still showing reruns on Nick at Nite, but now fans can enter the same domain as Police Chief Bill Gillespie. The digs used for the hit TV show are now up for sale.
The home, located at 2130 Monticello Street in Covington, is a beautiful two-story, 4,452 square foot home with five bedrooms and three bathrooms. It's listed in Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Metro Brokers’ Distinctive Collection.
BHGRE Metro Brokers agent Mary Ann Varner, who is the listing agent on the home, said the original depression glass windows gracing the front parlors, along with the kitchen, are some of her favorite features of the home.
“This home is sensational,” Varner said. “Not only does it take you back to the 1880s with its simplicity in style added by such features as it's claw-foot tub in the master bath, but it also has a splash of modern with its spectacularly upgraded kitchen."
The original hardwood floors in the home are still intact, according to the listing. This is a plus for fans of the show.
Covington is a popular destination for fans of the television show to visit throughout the year. Hundreds of fans take a trip to visit “Sparta,” the fictional location of “In the Heat of the Night,” each year and 2130 Monticello is always a sight. The home features a plaque outside marking it as the location of Chief Gillespie’s home.
“The Vampire Diaries,” another wildly popular television show, shoots in the town as well.
The home is currently listed at $500,000.
