Tradition and elegance abound in this stunning Athens Estate. This exclusive historic property has been admired by many for generations and is situated on a meticulously maintained 2.84 acre lot. Having been lovingly renovated, this home features 5 bedrooms and 4 ½ baths in the main house. A three bay garage with a carriage house apartment with 1 bedroom, full bath and sitting room made for a beautiful addition in 2014! Upon entering the front door, you will find yourself in awe of the open staircase accented by hardwood floors with a hand painted border at the front entryway, flanked by a formal dining room to your right and a large formal living room to your left. Both of these formal living spaces feature beautiful gas log fireplaces with original mantles and 10 foot ceilings. The fine, detailed craftsmanship in the paneling, molding and trim accent each and every room, serving as a reminder that this house has been built with exquisite taste. The formal dining room features two doorways, one entering the butler’s pantry, and the other allowing direct access into the gourmet kitchen. The butler’s pantry and kitchen have custom inlay cabinetry and marble countertops. Serving guests is made easy with access to a dishwasher drawer, extra sink and separate ice maker in the butler’s pantry. The cook of the house will be well equipped with a 6 eye gas Wolfe range, second wall oven, and SubZero refrigerator and freezer drawers. Double glass china cabinets serve as a divider between the kitchen and butler’s pantry and offer a stunning place to display your fine china or bar ware. The spacious family room with a wood burning fireplace is adjacent to the kitchen, with a large bay window overlooking the lush grounds, and french doors opening onto an enormous slate courtyard. Everyday living happens in this area of the home, and the current owners have maximized the space with a built-in banquet at the bay window, flanked by built-ins on either side. In 2002, an addition was made to add an oversized, main level owner’s suite, a handsome study with a gas log fireplace, and a finished terrace level with a large rec room, kitchen, and a handicap accessible bedroom and full bath. The open staircase that leads to the terrace level has a beautiful single pane palladian window offering views of the side yard, brick patio and creek. A wet bar is located in the study, making it a perfect retreat for reading or relaxing on calmer days. It’s a close race between this area and the vaulted screened-in porch as to which will be someone’s favorite spot in the house! A second owner’s suite is located on the upper level with a beautifully renovated bath with a soaking tub, separate marble shower and heated floors. Mirrored built-ins were added to the front wall to offer additional closet space and storage. Two secondary bedrooms share a full bath with a tub/shower combo and marble countertops. One of these bedrooms has charming built-in, encased twin beds. The outdoor features of this home rival the interior with multiple brick patios, stone walkways, solid wrought iron fencing and creek views. All of these features serve as a stunning backdrop for the heated, salt water pool and spa. To tie it all together is an oversized slate courtyard with built in landscape beds and multiple access points including the owner’s suite and family room. Perfection!
