Custom Built Lori Bork Home in Pulaski Heights. Winner of the 2014 Athens Heritage Award for Outstanding New Construction.
Tucked away on one of Athens’ most sought-after in-town streets and surrounded by other stunning examples of modern architecture, this 3bedroom | 3bath feels like a contemporary treehouse. Sweeping views of the woods and creek between Pulaski Heights and Barber Street, large windows throughout that maximize natural light, a plethora of clean living upgrades, and locally crafted features, this house is a meditation in the art of living well.
Fiberglass entry doors, 5” white oak floors throughout the house, HURD aluminum-clad windows and doors, fresh air intake and Geo-Plasma on HVAC, whole-house water filter/softener system, Webber Colman custom cabinetry in kitchen and baths, woodwork by Oneta Woodworks, and LED lighting throughout the house are just a few of examples of the attention to details offered in this Earth Craft Certified home.
Two large decks and a screened porch give the home an indoor/outdoor feel. The upstairs lofted owner’s suite has a spacious walk-in closet and to-die-for bathroom, whose skylights flood the room with light. A soaking tub and wall-to-wall shower make it feel like a personal spa. The large upstairs deck off the owner’s suite affords a private outdoor space—an additional bedroom with a private bath and the laundry complete the upstairs. On the main level, there is a bedroom/office, full bath, a large open kitchen with Electrolux appliances, and a living/dining area that opens out to both the deck and screened porch. There is a 984 square foot daylight basement with concrete floors, a separate entrance, and a patio.
The backyard feels secluded and has several flat areas for entertaining. The creek below is an oasis and a rare find in town. A pollinator garden in the front yard is complete with butterfly bushes.
All of this is just a short walk from downtown and Prince Ave. Have brunch around the corner at Pulaski Heights BBQ, or grab some wine at The Lark. The best of Athens is at your fingertips. Less than a mile to downtown and UGA, less than 2 miles to the stadium.
