    Description

    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 sale but can be purchased for $140,000 ($478,000 combined price) and would make a great rental, Airbnb or Game Day Rental, to help offset the mortgage. Call Sylvan today for your tour--Proof of funds or pre-approval letter kindly requested with all offers. Property being sold 'as is' with no disclosure as seller has never lived there. Will consider all trades, including farm and/or house with land in rural county.
