Intown, 3400′ ( plus basement ) Mid-Century Home with .4 acre lush landscape next to acres of woods, near river, and minutes to Downtown, UGA, and convenient to everything that makes Athens a unique place to live. The exterior of this 3-level home has an old style brick wrapping the main level, and uniquely thick 12 wide horizontal wood siding on 2nd level, metal roofing, a large front porch with ornate metal railing, a vaulted, open rafter wood ceiling, & antique oval windows on either side of the front door ( repurposed from an 1800s Athens home ). There’s an attached carport with a lattice brick wall, and a large and private rear patio ( off kitchen ) with tranquil views of a park-like setting. The landscape features: 3 large Magnolias, red & green leaf Japanese Maples, Dogwoods, Camellias, Azaleas, Crepe Myrtle, Gardenia, Holly, Yew, Fir, Tulip Poplar, ancient and wise Oaks, Boxwoods, and more. A Garden enthusiast’s personal paradise, with room to further cultivate, and recreate. Next door are acres of woods which create a wonderful privacy buffer. Inside, the 1st floor has a very open floor-plan, a large living room with fireplace, opens to a dining room, then into a huge kitchen area with updated cabinetry, stainless appliances, and sliding glass doors that open to rear patio. There’s also a Library with painted 6 tongue and groove wood walls and built-in shelving. Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms, with 2 original tile baths, including a large master suite with walk-in closet, and multiple built-ins within bedroom. The upstairs floors are oak, other than tile in baths. One secondary br has built in cabinetry as well. The basement is interesting, as a renovation was begun; though unfinished, it’s had walls framed and sheetrocked to create an additional large living room, a 4th tiled bath that’s perhaps 80% completed, an area for a 2nd kitchen, and 3 additional rooms, which could be bedrooms, office/studio space. One could use some of this space for a home gym as well. The original intention appears to have been to create a 3 BR Airb&b space in basement, though it could be a great division of space for extended family to be able to live in close proximity, yet have their own independent space. Lots of possibilities in a quiet, Sanctuary setting. ( Of note, the basement has had wiring, plumbing, & hvac run, walls sheetrocked, but is perhaps 20% from completion. Completed, this would become a 7 BR, 4 bath home, with multiple common living areas. With a little work, there’s a lot of value, and potential to be realized in this unique property. )
