REMARKS:

New price! Get ready to step back in time and yet experience a modern day twist. You can own a rare piece of Athens history, not to mention one of the last, big farmhouses minutes from downtown Athens. Rare but sought after 'Grapevine' mortar detail, suggest the solidity that comprises a home of the vintage. The wrap around porch is straight out of a Harper Lee novel, where many a lemonade was once sipped and southern tales were told. Rich, wooden doors offer entry to this freshly painted gem of a home with its high ceilings & large windows, that allow the sunlight to burst through and cast a happy glow on the golden, antique heart of pine floors & faux wood beams. The living room runs the width of the home, followed by a shotgun hallway, with 4 over sized bedrooms, 2 baths--one doubling as a large laundry room (with new washer and dryer). Not to mention the kitchen; the type that any gourmet cook dreams of -- stone counter tops, farm style sink with commercial faucet, a brand new appliance package (refrigerator, microwave, oven, dishwasher), antique, heart of pine wooden accents & Shaker style cabinets. Coffee in the morning & weekends baking cookies--even doing the dinner dishes never looked so good! Large, wooden ceiling fans and contemporary light fixtures bring just the right amount of modern elegance for a home of this era. Four ornamental fireplaces (two with antique mantles) could be returned to service for gas logs, real wood fires or to vent a wood stove. State-of-the-art, energy efficient, newer metal - reflective roof that is low maintenance: the perfect ambiance for a rainy day's nap. In town living like this is hard to come by. Lots of off street parking--a hot commodity today this close Downtown. Just minutes jaunt to the Foundry, Lyndon House Arts, The Classic Center, 1000 Faces Coffee, The Grit & Tacqueria del Sol, and not to mention the newly renovated offices of Our Town Realty! Small guest home (Fun sized Ruth) is not included in this
