Normaltown

If you have an old soul or cherish everything retro in life, Normaltown might be the place for you. Normaltown, named after the Normal School for teachers, is located adjacent to the University of Georgia’s 57-acre Health Sciences Campus, Piedmont Athens Regional Medical Center, and a 40-acre YMCA. It’s also in the award-winning Chase Street Elementary school district.

Normaltown is a wonderfully relaxed neighborhood that is walkable and bikeable to the Normaltown commercial district which features a delicious array of locally-owned restaurants, bars, breweries and shops including Automatic Pizza, Square One Fish Co., Hi-Lo Lounge, The Old Pal, Normal Bar, and Athentic Brewing. A vibrant nightlife, art scene, local breweries, and quaint shops are what make Normaltown a highly desirable place to find a home.

What a refreshing price for this well maintained/updated brick cottage in the thick of all Normaltown has to offer, yet set on a quiet cul-de-sac with plenty of on and off street parking. Just 1246’ from here to the UGA Health Science/Med School Campus and just a little farther to the neighborhood commercial center with Bars, Restos, Groceries, Hardware Store, Brewery, Cafe, and more. Piedmont hospital a walk away. All of the Prince Ave corridor offerings right there and downtown beyond beckons. Bus from Health Science campus is free and will take you straight to downtown/campus. Home is a 3/1.5 with LR/DR combo and a kitchen with cabinets and counters everywhere, especially for a house this size (all appliances stay, including fridge). Hardwoods throughout main floor, hallway, and bedrooms with tile in the baths and highest end vinyl in the kitchen. Back door access to super private back yard waiting for your personal touch, and when you keep reading to learn about all that has been done to the home, you will realize quickly that you can truly devote your attention to making an outdoor oasis for evening parties or a little fire after bopping around the Normaltown night life.
