Unique historic cottage property located within 200′ of UGA’s campus, with 2 structures: one is a 1950s 2/1 cottage; the other, located in the back yard, is a 2 room cedar sided structure, with covered front courtyard. The cottage and studio are sited in a lush landscape, with stone paths, multiple stone walls, terraces, and courtyard spaces that create the feel of outdoor rooms. There’s a beautiful Gingko tree framing the front yard, along with a plum tree, old rose bushes, and the back yard is shaded with the canopy of mature oak trees. This could be a cottage gardener’s dream property. The 2/1 cottage features a screened front porch with a starburst wood gable above it. The front door opens to a nice sized living room with fireplace, and 1” oak flooring, which runs throughout house, other than the tile flooring in kitchen & bath. The living room opens to the dining room, which adjoins the kitchen, which has black and white tile floors, a farmhouse-style Apron sink, butcher block wood counters, and a gas stove. The kitchen opens to a laundry/mud room, with back door that opens to a rear-side, private patio. The back yard has an abundance of stonework, signs of past gardens, and the very unique, former massage studio, which consists of 2 rooms, the front one vaulted, and a covered courtyard space in front. There are many creative possibilities for how this structure might be used, possibly an art studio, home office, a workshop, a he/she shed, guest space, music, meditation, or perhaps return it to a massage studio.( Note: this space has been primarily used for storage in recent years, as cottage was rented, so it could benefit from some cleaning/TLC ). This is that rare combination of a cute historic cottage, a detached studio, in a lush landscape setting, in the heart of In town, next to campus, and within easy walk/bike distance of Downtown, campus, public schools, bus systems, restaurants, entertainment, and all things that make living in Athens special. It has RM-1 zoning; it would make a nice primary or secondary residence, or possibly a desirable Airb&b.
