Description

Here's a rare opportunity to live on one of the most coveted streets in Athens where walking to the many restaurants and shops of Five Points and downtown is a breeze! This 1938 cottage has been a wonderful home to the same family for the past 27 years. When it was first purchased, the house went through major renovations and then in 2003, the large family room and lovely screened porch was added to the rear of the house along with an attached 2 car garage. The character of the home is evident from the moment you enter through the arched front doorway and step into the living room that is centered by a gas fireplace and graced with more arched doorways that lead to the sunroom, dining room, and hallway. The dining room is spacious and filled with natural light spilling through three large windows. It leads to the well appointed kitchen which was refreshed with top of the line Viking, Thermidor, and Bosch appliances in 2017. Other notable features include a center island, built in dog crate, banquet seating for the kitchen table, and a walk in pantry. Continuing to the rear of the house, there is a laundry room, cozy office, a surprisingly large half bath and a family room which has a built in bar nook, a wood burning fireplace and space for a game/puzzle table. This is definitely the hang out area of the home as it is big enough for a crowd to watch the Dawgs play ~ and if you open the door to the screened in porch, you can hear the cheers from Sanford Stadium, Foley Field, and Dan Magill Tennis Center! Rounding out the main floor are 3 bedrooms, one with its own bathroom which was the original primary suite before the renovation, and two secondary bedrooms that share a hallway bathroom. Upstairs are two additional bedrooms, one which is currently used as the primary suite with walk in closets, a sitting area, and a large en suite bathroom while the other bedroom is used as an office. The basement has tons of storage space and a feature not found in many homes in Five Points---a two car garage! Completing this wonderful home is a beautifully landscaped backyard that includes a firepit and a nice sized out building which has potential for a workshop, art studio, separate home office---the possibilities abound! If you act quickly, you'll be in time to stand in your own front yard and cheer the DAWG busses with their police escorts on their way to their away games, and back after their WIN!! Call your favorite Realtor to schedule a showing!
