Truly a Five Points Classic, this circa 1949 Brick Cottage home is a gem in the very heart of Athens. The owner having an eye for architecture, well thought out floor plans and top of the line finishes make for an unbelievable renovation and addition! The exterior of this home is exactly the curb appeal you are looking for in a cottage with the perfect landscaping that accentuates the cottage style. People watching at its best with a cute front porch and swing. I love that the front door faces east inward toward the screen porch. In keeping with the character of this home you have a screen door for fresh air on those fall and spring days. As you enter the home you will be amazed at how you can see from the front of the home all the way through to the back of the home. This is very unusual to have such an open floor plan in Five Points. You will enjoy having all of your living space on one level, with hardwood floors, tons of windows and every inch being completely renovated. It is a split bedroom floor plan with two bedrooms and one full bath on the left hand side of the home and the master bedroom being private in the back on the right hand side of the home. The kitchen is conveniently located in the center of the house and open to all of the living space: dining room, living room, breakfast room and great room/sunroom. Your guests will enjoy gathering around the kitchen and being able to visit multiple rooms at the same time. Top of the line stainless steel appliances, double sink, drink refrigerator and multiple prep countertop areas make for a chef kitchen. Little details were not overlooked with spice cabinets and some floating shelves. Having a pantry is not a standard in these older homes but of course the owner reworked a space for there to be an ample size area for canned goods, larger mixing appliances and your dry goods. On one side of the kitchen you have a breakfast bar large enough for four bar stools and an oversized area for a breakfast table where you could also have two club chairs. The laundry room is tucked away at the end of the breakfast table area and this room includes a laundry sink, cabinetry and space for an additional refrigerator. As I have stated this home is completely open, so the breakfast area only has a half wall that has built-in bookcases on one side and allows this space to be completely open to the great room/large sunroom. Natural light, natural light, natural light! What can I say the great room/sunroom has one wall that is all windows and glass French doors leading out to the deck and extra driveway. The master bedroom is oversized with a walk-in closet and a fabulous remodeled bathroom with built-in linen cabinetry, double sinks, seamless glass step in shower with beautiful tile and a penny tile floor. The real BONUS of this property features a 576 square foot guest cottage that is only five years old and hosts one bedroom, one bath, laundry closet, mini kitchen and great room. You will love the privacy of the guest house that was built with a front porch, nine foot ceilings and has a remote gate for your own parking space. You have a well manicured lawn between the main home and guest cottage. There is a privacy fence on the back of the lawn, hiding the guest cottage. This is truly one of a kind home with a driveway for parking in the front of the cottage and an electric remote gate in the back for accessing the guest cottage and extra parking for the main home allowing you to enter with almost no steps onto the deck that has glass French doors leading you into the great room/sunroom. An extra feature this home offer is a new generator in case you lose power. The University of Georgia, restaurants and shopping are only steps away. You don’t want to miss this rare opportunity!!
