Unique, very In-town, 2-story custom-built home that backs up to Trail Creek and Dudley Park, which sits across the Oconee River from Downtown and UGA. This is a wonderful sanctuary, in terms of location, surroundings, and the space that’s been created. The home features a double, stacked front porch; the upstairs porch is screened, with natural wood ceilings, and 2 ceiling fans, ideal for rocking chair meditation and relaxation. There’s a large, private, rear deck that overlooks a lush, fenced and well landscaped back yard, Trail Creek, and the woodlands of the park. The exterior is true stucco on the 1st floor, board and batting wood on 2nd floor, and has a metal roof. Inside, the entire 1st floor is open, from the front porch door to back door/rear deck ( other than a 1/2 bath ). This area features the rich beauty of an abundance of reclaimed heart pine: the front common living area floors, beaded board wainscot, crown, custom kitchen cabinetry, and a custom island/bar. This entire space is enveloped with large windows, providing wonderful natural light. The kitchen is huge, and is beautifully laid out, with a custom island, pantry, Travertine stone floors, transom windows above the upper cabinets, stainless appliances, and windows above kitchen sink with lovely views of the backyard landscape, park, and sunsets. The open living concept on this floor provides great flexibility in how one can choose to use the space. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, including a large master suite overlooking the rear landscape, conjoined with stylish bath that features custom maple cabinets and trim, travertine floors, a stone shower with bench seating, and a jetted tub. The entire 2nd floor has bamboo flooring ( other than baths, which are stone ). The secondary bedrooms both have French doors that access the upstairs screen porch. The secondary bath has slate floors, a custom vanity, and a tub/tile shower with a transom window. This home was designed and built by a local artist in 2007, and is not the type of home one finds very often. Further, it’s was built in a rare, lush green setting, next to the park, and has since been beautifully landscaped by the current owner. Set in one of Athen’s oldest and most green-centric neighborhoods, Chicopee-Dudley, rich with history and an eclectic mix of architecture, this is about as close to both Downtown and the University of Georgia campus as one can live. Also, one can easily access either the Greenway or Firefly Trails, each within 2 blocks. This property is located within walk/bike distance of so much of what makes Athens a unique and special place to live: restaurants, live music and art venues, retail, theater, the Civic Center, a veritable plethora of cultural diversity, and more Parks! More photos will be added in the coming days. Showings begin Wednesday, May 22.
