Founded in the late 19th century, the Boulevard neighborhood became known as Athens’ first streetcar suburb. The ease and convenience of streetcar transportation caused suburban living to surge in popularity. Over the years, this beloved neighborhood has attracted a mix of residents that appreciate it not only for its convenient location but, more importantly, for its history, strong sense of community, and beautiful architecture.

From Pulaski to Pound and from Prince to the railroad track lies the Historic Boulevard neighborhood. This community is coveted by many for its close proximity to downtown Athens, Chase Street Elementary School, Piedmont Regional Hospital, The University of Georgia (UGA), award-winning Chase Street Elementary, as well as some of our favorite local restaurants including White Tiger Gourmet, Maepole, Heirloom, and Pulaski Heights BBQ

In addition to its convenient location, many are attracted to the neighborhood’s curb appeal and history. The tree-lined streets provide a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle and the perfect place for a walk, jog or stroll near to home. Considered a “front porch” neighborhood, Boulevard encompasses a variety of incredible home architecture including Greek Revival, Queen Anne, and Neoclassical styles, a welcome sight and reminder of the history this neighborhood encapsulates. 

Historic district living meets this-century construction at 1185 Boulevard! This Buena Vista Historic District craftsman-style home was built in 2005 and professionally updated over the last two years. Hydrangeas and roses line the walkway to the gated front porch, where you will spend your evenings relaxing in a rocking chair. Through the front door is the sun-soaked living room, with vaulted ceilings and plenty of space for entertaining. A large cased opening brings you into the tastefully updated eat-in kitchen, featuring gorgeous granite counters, island seating, and stainless steel appliances. Two generously-sized bedrooms for guests share a full bathroom with wainscoted walls and new fixtures. The vestibule behind the kitchen has space for a desk or hutch, and also has a dedicated coat closet and attic access for storage. In the laundry room you will find a new washer and dryer as well as a countertop for folding. Did we mention the closet space? All bedrooms feature custom wood shelving, and there are not one but two pantries in the kitchen. There are nine foot ceilings throughout the home, and flooring is a mix of hardwood, tile, and newly installed high-end carpet. At the rear of the house you will find the owner's suite, complete with trey ceilings and two separate closets. The primary bath was renovated in December 2021, and no expense was spared. The massive shower features floor-to-ceiling tile, a frameless glass door, cosmetics niche, and dual valve plumbing with shower head and removable hand-held sprayer. The clawfoot tub is tucked away in a nook for added relaxation, and the toilet sits in its own water closet for extra privacy. The dual vanity is separated by a linen tower seated atop the granite counter, and soft-close doors and drawers highlight the ample cabinet space. Out the side door you will find a backyard oasis, with a large shady patio, raised flower beds filled with azaleas, hydrangeas, and camellias, and even a productive vegetable garden (tomato and cucumber plants love this spot!). The tinkerer in your family will be thrilled by the 10'x12' storage shed, which is wired with electricity, fully insulated, and comes with shelving and workbench installed. The exterior of the home is wrapped in HardiePlank siding and was painted in 2020. The gravel driveway extension provides loads of off-street parking for when guests come to visit, and the underside of the front porch has been latticed and gated for extra outdoor storage. Every improvement to this home has been thoughtfully considered, and every inch meticulously maintained. Come see it before it's gone!
