West Athens

Whether you’re a first time homebuyer, need more space, or want a home with community amenities, West Athens may be the right area for you. Popular among buyers who grow out of their smaller, in-town homes, West Athens offers larger lots, homes with more square footage, and a variety of price points. 

The area bound between Hawthorne Avenue, Athens Perimeter and Atlanta Highway includes the Forest Heights community, an established neighborhood desirable among first time homebuyers. Forest Heights homes are highly sought after for their affordability and close proximity to in-town conveniences.

Located west of the Middle Oconee River and south of Atlanta Highway is the popular Timothy Road area. This high-growth corridor offers a mix of older and newer construction homes that tend to provide more peace, privacy and space to spread out compared to in-town neighborhoods. Conveniently located near a variety of restaurants, including local favorites Agua Linda and DePalmas, local and big box retailers, with easy access to Athens Academy and Timothy Road Elementary.

599 Milledge Terrace Athens, Georgia

7 Beds 4 Baths 4,045 SqFt 1.360 Acres

You just can't get any closer to campus if you tried. This darling 1920's cottage is surrounded by UGA property on several sides and at the end of a cut-de-sac street that dead ends right behind the parking lot at Russell Hall (there is even a path down the hill to the parking deck where it would be super easy to catch a bus or walk to campus). The house itself has tons of original architectural features (original hardwood floors, plaster walls, and period tile in the primary bath), but has some wonderful updates as well (central heat and air-multiple units, modernized kitchen, newer architectural roof, and a fantastic addition out back that could double as additional living space or a Mother-In-Law suite). The main house has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath on the main floor but the upstairs (which used to be attic space) has been reclaimed to be a cozy 3rd bedroom. Coveted by tenants over the years, this space is large, spacious and private. It's served by a window unit (and not the central heat and air). The main house has a private screened porch and spacious deck (hello tailgates). In the rear, there is a second "mini residence" which has it's own entrance (please note, you can also access the main house from this space without going outside if desired. Ask Ceci for details). The rear apartment also features its own screened porch and deck space. It has a kitchenette, loft bedroom, living space, walk in closet and private bath. There is plenty of room for off street parking as well. Newer roof, 2 newer HVAC/furnace units, and a new water heater (June 2023). This would make a perfect rental property, gamely property or owner occupied space. New sewer line from house to street. Zoned for Barrow Elementary.  Unit is tenant occupied until July 2024 at $2500/mon but is rented to friends' kids so is under market. Market rent (for investors) is projected to be $3500-$3800/mon (We are calculating this at $1200 for the apartment out back and $800/bedroom in the main house). $450,000 Active
