140 Sylvia Circle

Sleek, contemporary 4BR/2BA home is up for grabs! 140 Sylvia Circle was renovated in 2014/2015 with a design that includes custom built cabinetry, winding staircase, door/window trim, and built-in shelving, not to mention site finished red oak floors, and modern appointments throughout. The main floor consists of an open concept living area with 9ft ceilings, two bedrooms, a full bath, and a gourmet kitchen/dining combo with granite countertops, glass backsplash, under cabinet lighting, and breakfast bar. Tucked behind the kitchen you will find a laundry room and adjacent mudroom that has access to the backyard patio. Upstairs is a generous loft/flex space that makes a perfect TV room, a large third bedroom, and the master suite. The roomy master bath boasts tile floors, tile wainscoting, and a spacious tile shower with dual shower heads and glass enclosure, while the master bedroom has a private screened porch that makes you feel like you're in the treetops. Stepping outdoors you will see that the custom touches were not overlooked! The former carport has been converted into a hip patio space with a poured concrete bench and a metal 'fish scale' ceiling that adds artistic flare. Lastly, the engineered block retaining wall and recently installed riverbed adds punch to a landscape that still has opportunity for your personal touches. Want convenience? The house is located in the Buena Vista Heights/Normaltown neighborhood, across from the UGA Health Sciences Campus and just minutes from downtown Athens. Prefer low maintenance? Then the metal roof, real stucco, masonry siding, new sewer line, new duct work, new plumbing, and new electrical with underground service is sure to please. Looking for energy efficiency? This home has foam insulation and blown-in cellulose in all exterior walls, foam insulation underneath the roof decking, and R-30 batts in the ceiling above the master bedroom. Need storage? In addition to the linen closet and under stair storage on the main, walk-in closets in the upstairs bedroom and master suite, there is a 600 square foot attic space. Not a fan of busy residential streets? Due to its configuration Sylvia Circle could be considered a "pocket" neighborhood and has little or no through-traffic. Whew! If you're not convinced by this description, then come see it for yourself! Open House on Sunday, October 6th from 2-4pm. *Listing agent is the significant other of seller.*
