Lori Bork Designed, Modern Scandinavian-style Farmhouse. This custom-built home perfectly blends modern with cozy. Designed to reflect both the historic mill houses that surround it as well as the industrial metal-clad buildings in the neighborhood. It features an open concept kitchen, a large living room with exposed wood-beam vaulted ceilings. that takes advantage of maximum daylight. The windows are placed in a specific layout to the orientation of the lot and following the arc of the sun and moon. Concrete flooring makes for easy maintenance and the fenced in yard (custom made by Stroudman Woodworks) makes this home pet-friendly.
Filled with unique touches by local artisans from the wood mantle by Watson Springs, shelving by Oneta Woodworks and metalwork by St. Udio, and a kitchen island top made from local spalted Beech with boards that are book-matched grain with a live edge and finished with a zero VOC finish for food safety (also made by Watson Springs). The indoor/ outdoor space is perfect for entertaining. Private outdoor dining, fully landscaped (with low maintenance plants) yard with groves of shady trees, makes this in-town location both private and in the heart of the action.
The first floor includes a private bedroom/ bathroom, as well as extra storage.
Upstairs is a luxurious master suite, complete with 2 huge walk-in closets, large spa shower with sky-light, coffee bar, and a second-story balcony that spans the length of the home and has views of the tree-lined ravine across the street, making you feel as though you are in your own treehouse.
Built for maximum energy efficiency, installed solar panels cut the electric cost in half. The nest programmable thermostat is BlueTooth operable, all high-end modern appliances, walk-in pantry, and a highly coveted garage (a rare find for in-town properties) make this home one not to miss.
Pulaski Heights is a special place with a true neighborhood feel. Tucked away and wooded on top of a large hill, filled with history, this street overlooks the Leathers Building below, with popular shops, restaurants, and galleries. It is a short walk into town to all that Athens has to offer, including Creature Comforts, Cine, and The National. Coming in 2020 there will be a full-sized grocery store at the end of the Pulaski street, a few short blocks away, and the UGA football stadium is less than 2 miles away, Piedmont Athens Regional Hospital is 1.5 miles away.
Surrounded by other customs Lori Bork designed homes, it has been on multiple home and garden tours and won the 2014 Athens Heritage Foundation Award for Outstanding New Construction in a Historic Neighborhood.
