In-Town, Historic 3/3 Bungalow on lovely .42 acre lot, just blocks from UGA, Downtown, Dudley Park, Oconee River, Mama’s Boy restaurant, the Greenway Trail ( now connecting to SE UGA campus ) & Firefly Trail ( An old railroad line, recently converted to bike/walk trails which connect into Downtown ).
This house has an abundance of artful details throughout property, including: refinished heart pine floors, lovely fireplace mantles, arched doorways, a large screened front porch with natural wood floors, a beautifully restored original bath with antique clawfoot tub, stylish vanity, and enveloped in the amber warmth of repurposed antique heart pine.
The home has a highly functional floor plan: with the living room, large dining room ( which allows future kitchen expansion if desired), and kitchen all openly flowing along the left side of the main floor in an open fashion, with 2 BRs/2 Baths on the right side, including a Master suite. The kitchen has a new stainless gas stove & fridge, as well as newer granite countertops. Downstairs, the floor plan offers a wide range of uses, with the possibilities of a 2nd Master suite, or an In-law area, with several flex rooms, including a large room with washer/dryer that has interior/exterior accessibility. Downstairs has both interior, as well as, 2 exterior points of access, and the flexibility of space offers an array of creative uses: office, studio, gym, guest space, & storage.
The exterior features a state-of-the art metal roof with classic open tail rafters, a field stone foundation punctuated with brick piers, a large screened front porch. Stately granite columns stand sentry on each side of the driveway entrance, (though only one is on this property). Abundant off-street parking, including the original garage under house, with double barn-style doors, (this area could serve as an excellent workshop/storage) or be returned as a garage for a smaller vehicle/bicycles. Sunny front yard with professionally chosen landscaping. Fenced pet area behind house. Rear yard is in conservation, with natural rock outcroppings and cactus-like vegetation. The woods beyond provide serene views. Also, there are seasonal views of Downtown and UGA campus skyline, especially alluring as the evening sun sets behind them.
Ultimately, this is a unique historic property, wonderfully located on a high elevation lot, just across the Oconee River from Downtown & the University, an In-town location providing convenient access to all things that make living in Athens, an arts-centric, culturally diverse community, so special. Of note: this is Zoned multi-family, thus allowing at least four unrelated occupants. There’s a bath for each bedroom, thus this property may appeal to both owner-occupants and investors.
