Opportunities like this dont come along often. This turn-of-the-century Queen Anne is truly one of the most beautiful and architecturally intact historic homes in Athens. Most of the architectural and structural elements are original - heart pine flooring, original mantles, 12 tongue and groove ceilings, heart pine exterior siding and dental molding trim, original windows with stained glass. The grand entry way is welcoming and boasts formal living and dining rooms with original trim, decorative fireplaces, and glass doors. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms, the bedrooms have original decorative fireplaces and mantles. The master bedroom has a study / sitting area. The kitchen was updated with furniture grade cherry cabinetry, and a sunroom / eating area. Outside is a wrap around porch and a porch off the sunroom. The backyard has a formal garden that is quite private and offers in-town seclusion with paths to private garden spaces - original landscape plan available for purchaser. The entire property is bordered by an iron fence. The basement is an exterior entrance garden room / workshop and offers great storage. The attic spans almost the entire house and offers room for expansion. Normal town is a bustling neighborhood with many great shops, eateries, watering holes, and Chase Street Elementary within walking distance. What a treasure.
