A beautiful, tastefully restored home in the heart of Athens...what more could you ask for? This 3BR/3.5BA home sits on Hill St. but faces Milledge and features one of the most unique floor plans in town. It's believed that the original, interior structure is the oldest home in Athens and was once part of the Phinizy Family Farm. It was the only structure in the area and the front gate was on Milledge Ave., hence the current orientation. A fire damaged portions of that house sometime around 1870, prompting a complete renovation which included flanking octagonal wings and additional rooms. Over the years, more additions were made and the basement was finished. Large rooms with soaring ceilings and tall windows that stretch to the floor, stately fireplaces, and gleaming hardwood floors are throughout. The front entrance room has exposed beams in the ceiling, ornate double doors - leading into the parlor- and some of the most beautiful trim work you've ever seen. The formal parlor looks out to a front lawn with an ancient magnolia tree and views of Hill Street beyond. Behind the parlor, is a cozy a study/office/library that leads to the master bedroom, with built-in closets and master bath, complete with claw-foot tub, separate tile shower and a marble top vanity that looks like it could have been an original fixture in the home. On the other side of the home you'll find a commercial-style kitchen is in the left octagonal wing that is ready to inspire your inner chef/entertainer. Moving through the kitchen, you'll find a great flex space that was most likely a porch at one time but has been enclosed. It's currently used as a sitting and music room but would make a fabulous dining room. A large guest bed and bath, laundry room and half bath finish off the main floor. Stairs lead from the sitting room into the finished basement which has multiple spaces and is currently being used as a den, home gym and additional guest bed and bath. If you would like additional space, t
