This amazing brick bungalow is in the heart of all that Athens holds dear. Just a quick hop from 5 Points proper, it’s the perfect spot to be in the center of the action. Walk to sporting events (tailgate in your own backyard), to shops and restaurants, and over to South Campus for a run around Lake Herrick at the Intramural Fields. Memorial Park (to feed the ducks) is an easy stroll as well. This fantastic, classic Athens home has indigenous charm and unassuming style-perfect components on which to build and grow. Speaking of growing, this house sits on a super deep lot (it goes 3 houses deep) and is primed and ready for an expansion or potential accessory structure. High hardwoods at the back of the property provide the most luscious tree canopy and the gentle slope make an extension of the basement ideal. This house is on 3 levels. The main level features all the charm of a 1940’s bungalow with original hardwood floors, plaster walls and picture molding, and stunning natural light. Upstairs is finished attic space (be sure to look in the eaves to see all the storage), but this space lends itself perfectly to an addition off the back that would not detract from the original facade of the home. The basement is partially finished with an apartment which has its own utilities (separate meter) and is recognized by the city as a separate address (180 1/2 Southview-how cute is that). This makes it ideal to have as a rental property, AirBNB, or in-law suite. In short, there are so many options and possibilities to make this into the home of your dreams. Start with good bones, classic architecture and a fantastic lot in an unparalleled location, and you have makings of something great. Super easy to show, but please make an appointment.
