Michael Littleton

REALTOR®

Having lived in Athens for 35 years (in almost all the intown neighborhoods), Michael’s passions for housing are varied and have evolved over the years. “I’ve always felt an emotional connection to the older, historic homes and unique properties like churches, warehouses, and schools. So, helping people buy and sell such unique properties has always been gratifying; I can’t imagine a more satisfying way to spend time working.  I’ve been fortunate that my enthusiasm for these properties has also allowed me the privilege to creatively restore some amazing structures over the years. I’ve undertaken these restorations with close friends, who in my estimation are some of the finest craftspeople in the area; it’s hard to put into words just how pleasurable and rewarding this path of experience has been. Along the way, I’ve been privileged to be associated with some truly amazing properties and people. I feel quite blessed.”

Recently, a number of these crafts folk, and some new acquaintances (some very talented folks who I think will be the next generation of sentient and quality, local builders) made along the way, have begun to build new homes, with an inclination toward building classic structures which incorporate ‘green elements’. It’s been exciting to see historic-style homes being built, which are not only energy efficient, but that are being built with a growing interest in awareness of their potential impact on the environment.

“Our world is clearly changing. Joining Corcoran Classic Living offers an opportunity to be an agent of that change. It offers an opportunity to blend my passion for historic and unique structures with a movement toward greater environmental awareness. I’m eager to see what this next leg of the journey will bring.”

4 Beds 4 Baths 2,364 SqFt 0.190 Acres

In town, unique historic property, once a neighborhood grocery store, that dates back to 1897, and was open until 1980. Located in one of the oldest areas in Athens, the Chicopee-Dudley neighborhood, on a corner lot, it’s 2 blocks from crossing the Oconee River in one direction, and 2 blocks to the entrance into Dudley Park, and accessing the River Greenway and Firefly Trails in another. This is the most green-centric area in Athens, with multiple parks, a major river, creeks, multiple walk/bike trails, and an abundance of wildlife, yet only blocks from both Downtown and the University of Georgia campus. The house has been fully and artfully restored from the foundation to its metal roof. The floor plan allows for an array of possible uses, as the original layout of the store that faced Arch Street, and the attached living space behind the store have been renovated such that it can be used as 2 distinct living spaces, or by opening connective doors, it can be one larger living space. Thus, it could be a single home, 2 very unique Airb&b spaces, live in one side and rent the other, or share one side as an in-law, guest, or family suite. Currently, there are 2 large kitchens and 3 beautifully tiled baths. If only 1 kitchen is needed, the other can be easily dismantled and used differently. The property has wood floors throughout, some wood walls and ceilings, and some amazing custom built doors that were repurposed from the historic warehouse downtown that housed Jittery Joes coffee house and roasting facility. Some of these doors are barn style while others have colored glass panels or are hinged windows built into door that open. Additionally, there’s a porch that wraps around 2 sides of the house, and a screened rear porch with privacy lattice work. The electrical, plumbing, heat/air systems have all been updated, so this is the best of both worlds, a historic structure, full of character and history, yet with modern amenities, the restoration already completed. Another feature, despite being so conveniently close to Downtown and campus, this block of Poplar sees very little traffic, thus is a fairly quiet location. Also, both Poplar and Arch Streets have sidewalks, so travel to Downtown, UGA, and parks are quite pedestrian friendly. This is a rare property, in one of Athens oldest neighborhoods, conveniently located near so many of the things that make living in Athens special. A must see property! 465,000 Closed
