Rare opportunity to live in a beautifully renovated historic home in the heart of downtown Watkinsville with separate carriage house and gorgeous yard. Likely built in the 1830’s, there are original and reclaimed floorboards as wide as 11 inches; most interior walls clad in hand-planed, solid wood boards, up to 14 inches wide; historic doors, ranging in age from the antebellum to the early twentieth century; a Terne metal, standing seam, shed roof on the rear; converted-coal hearths and historic mantles (upstairs); and historic, double-hung windows. This home has been perfectly updated with quartz countertops and stainless steel appliances in the kitchen, modern bathrooms with classic touches like a clawfoot tub, and huge closets throughout. Downstairs is a large dining room and kitchen with built in banquet, half bath and laundry room on the left, separated by a large hallway with the living room and owner’s suite on the right. Upstairs are two oversized bedrooms, study nook, and family bathroom. Off the living room is a fenced in courtyard with patio shaded by a magnificent magnolia tree. A screened porch leads to the backyard, with healthy, long-lived, native hardwood trees providing shade and privacy. The carriage house, completely renovated in 2016, features a sitting room, kitchen and full bath on the first floor and a bedroom on the second, accessible via a spiral stair and can function as a desirable rental. Living in downtown Watkinsville allows you to stroll to shops, restaurants and cultural events throughout the charming city or take advantage of the many green spaces such as Watkinsville Woods. This is your chance to live in a beautiful historic home within walking distance of many amenities and in the award winning Oconee School District.
