Charming In-town Historic 3/2 cottage with detached studio and fenced backyard and courtyard located just blocks from Downtown and UGA, in the historic Pulaski Heights neighborhood, perhaps the most architecturally vibrant and eclectic neighborhood in Athens, with a unique mix of Historic and Modern architecture. This location offers easy access to what makes in-town living in Athens special, walk/bike trails, parks, the Oconee River/Greenway, Downtown restaurants, live music, local breweries, retail, the beautiful landscape of the University of Georgia and all its offerings, and veritable cultural cornucopia of adventures and living one’s best Life. Immediately next door is the historic Leathers Building, a wonderful neighborhood mixed-use enclave that offers art galleries, a wine shop, yoga, holistic healing, BBQ, & more, though does anyone really need more than that for true bliss? The cottage features a metal roof and rocking chair front porch that sits up high above Pulaski Street, somewhat privately. The front door has double arched windows and provides access to a central hallway, ideal for displaying art, and the hallway accesses all 3 bedrooms and the living room. The bedrooms are large with tall ceilings, ceiling fans, large windows that provide abundant natural light, and each bedroom has its own fireplace mantle/hearth ( nonfunctional, though add historic character ). One bedroom has a dedicated bath, and there’s a central bathroom at the end of the hall which features an antique claw foot tub/shower combo, and reclaimed heart pine wainscot and accents. The LR has beadboard ceilings, wood walls, heart pine flooring, and connects to kitchen. The kitchen is a mix of old and new elements: character laden older cabinets with tile counters mix with new fridge, dishwasher, and front load washer/dryer. There’s an older wall oven and counter cooktop. The ceiling and walls are beadboard, enhancing the historic character of cottage. A French door in kitchen opens to a private courtyard and fenced back yard. Additionally, there’s a detached studio/outbuilding with metal roof, and exposed rafters inside.
