Kitchen has custom poured concrete & butcher block counters, Travertine back splash, mosaic stone floors & maple cabinets. Kitchen opens to what could be a wonderful side courtyard. The baths are an artful mix of stone, glass block & tile with Ikea vanities. Flex room off master bedroom can be used as nursery, office, den, dressing room or home gym. Updates include wiring, plumbing, new energy efficient heating/air (2009). New energy efficient windows (2012) and new metal roof and exterior paint (2020.) Beautifully refinished oak floors. A lovely screen porch was added to the front of the house, and is surrounded by a lush landscape. The landscape includes: ancient twin oaks that frame out the front yard, dogwoods, camellias, azaleas, fragrant gardenias, lavender, climbing jasmine, day lilies, and spectacular burning bush, which creates quite a display in the Fall. The deep back yard is surrounded by an array of hardwoods, while the center of the lot is open and could be a landscaper's paradise.Home is is perfectly located within walking distance to Bishop Park, which has abundant greenspace, tennis and swim facilities, and is the home to the Athens Farmer's Market each Saturday. Also, it is just blocks from the 58-acre UGA Health Sciences Campus, ARMC, and an array of shops and restaurants in Historic Normaltown.
