    Description

    Beautifully Restored, circa 1908, In-Town Farmhouse, located just blocks from Downtown Athens, UGA's historic North campus, as well as the Oconee River, Miles of River Greenway walk/bike trails, Williams Farm ( an Athens Land Trust managed educational community farm ), 5 Acre Woods, and the Loop. This is an amazingly central and convenient location for experiencing the best of what makes living in Athens unique and special. This rare piece of history dates back to horse drawn carriages, and though it's a straight shot into downtown & campus, this was once considered rural farmland. Though just renovated, the home still conveys its history with charm and artfulness. From the classic wraparound, rocking chair front porch, perfect for socializing or moments of meditation and reflection, one can enter the house through 2 doors. One enters into a huge common living area that spans the width of the home, and features beautiful heart pine flooring, exposed beams, and the exposed original brick of the The fireplace. A 2nd porch door accesses a large master bedroom. Returning to the LR, a central hallway provides access to 3 BRs ( each of which has artfully re-designed ornamental fireplaces, stylish ceiling fans, and heart pine flooring ), and leads to a beautifully designed new kitchen with breakfast nook. The gourmet kitchen features new Shaker-style cabinetry, farmhouse apron sink with commercial faucet, stone countertops, a complete new stainless appliance package, stylish contemporary lighting, and heart pine open shelving and accents. There's a large room off the kitchen, at back of the house, southern exposure, that could either be a sunroom, or a 4th BR. This Interior of this home has an array of delightful details. Several exterior features of note are the newer, classic metal roof, energy-efficient, as well as magical when the rhythmic patter dances upon it. Also, the foundation is granite, with Grapevine mortar; quite lovely. Additionally, there's an abundance of off-street parking, rare for in-town properties, and the sunny backyard is perfect for gardening. If interested, the adjoining property, with a 1/1, very unique, 2-story cottage, 490.5 GBaby' Ruth, is also available for purchase jointly, or separately, with the farmhouse. It could make for an ideal guest house, rental or Airb&b to supplement mortgage, or serve as a detached home office, studio space, or He/She Sweet Retreat. More details and photos will soon be available. Don't miss this unique opportunity to own a piece of Athens History.
