This enchanting home is located just a hop skip and a jump from Atlanta (an hour and 30 minutes give or take. I’m always on the lookout for Starbucks along the way thus it takes a wee bit longer sometimes). My first impression of this incredibly vast and interesting lake-front home – Ernest Hemingway. A Man’s Man. A few of my favorite things — the art, collections of china, the pool table and gosh — so much more!

I pass Talladega on my way to see my daughter who is in her final year of college at University of Alabama -Tuscaloosa (Roll Tide – heck yes). You’ll also pass Lake Logan-Martin. On the waterfront sits an incredible home — where Charles Dinsmore lived. He had a passion for collections, history and anscestory. —Charles L. Dinsmore Jr., of Anniston and Decatur, passed peaceably from this life o Saturday, May 10, 2014, at home in Lincoln. Charles was a well known business owner in Decatur where he ran Southern Sales Building Supply until relocating in 1979 to Anniston as owner of Anniston Lincoln Mercury Dodge. He retired in 2012 to take up his passion of genealogy and ancestry, tracing his family lineage all the way to Charlemagne. He was born on Jan. 3, 1942.
Charles Dinsmore previously owned the Anniston Lincoln Mercury Dealership for 50 years. He was quite the character. In this sale you’ll find memorabilia from the auto-industry. For instance — the 7 foot penstastar mopar sign (google it). He has art from the Dodge and Ford Families. He was a world traveler — traveling to Hong Kong, Scotland, London, France, Italy the Panama Canal. He took the QE2 across the pond and in the liquor cabinet you’ll find Scotch from that trip. His bride at the time had severe reaction to the ocean waves (sea sickness) and they had to be air lifted to the main land.
Charles also collected unique liquor bottles, furniture and books. His family was one of the First Families of Tennessee. When their families moved they were the ones who actually settled states (that’s a pretty cool item to have in your family history — wouldn’t you agree?).
