Beautifully restored historic home in downtown Winterville. Originally the Hunnicutt Hotel, it will come as no surprise that this amazing home has been featured in magazines. Full of character and charm, but with modern updates including a new metal roof, fresh paint inside and out, and newer gas heat and hot water heater. As you enter through the custom wrought iron fence, enjoy the lush landscaping surrounding the L shaped front porch. The foyer gives a taste of the many unique features that run throughout the home including original heart pine wide planked floors and many antique light fixtures and custom molding. Downstairs has a large living room, custom kitchen with a huge island that can seat 6 and has a gas stove and custom cabinetry and a separate dining room. There is also a half bath and large mudroom/laundry space. In one wing of the downstairs is a suite of rooms that can be used as a master retreat, in-law suite, or an income suite, or just as additional living space for the family. It contains a large bedroom, living room, and a full separate kitchen with laundry and an island that seats 4. This suite of rooms can be entered through the main portion of the house or through a separate entrance through the carport. It has a mudroom/entry hall and a full bath as well. Upstairs are 3 large bedrooms and two full baths. The master bath has a separate shower and a claw foot tub. Two staircases offer plenty of access throughout the house. There are 8 original fireplaces. You don’t have to sacrifice storage space though with plenty of closets and unique nooks and crannies. Outside offers almost half an acre of room to play and entertain. There is a covered back deck with an outdoor kitchen as well as a brick patio. The entire yard is fenced and surrounded by mature hardwoods, yet it offers ample room to have a garden and plenty of space for outdoor recreation. Currently there is a playscape and zip line. There is a huge shed and workshop for even more storage. This jewel of a house is also in a wonderful location, full of community. A quick drive to downtown Athens but with all the charm of a small town. Easily walk to the library, post office, and park. Almost directly across the street there are outdoor music concerts, the Marigold festival, and a Christmas festival. This is a must see, one of a kind home that won’t last long at this price!
