6295 Jefferson Rd, Athens

This elegant Antebellum homestead has been extensively expanded and remodeled with luxury updates that blend beautifully with its preserved historical elements. It features two large master suites on the first floor that are on the opposite ends of the house. Built in 1820 the core structure is the oldest building on its original foundation in Athens. Through the Civil War it was known as the GumSprings Inn hosting travelers along the 1805 Federal Road between Athens and Gainesville. This private sanctuary located on 6.59 acres is bordered by Turkey Creek on one side and over 15 acres of fields and woods on the other that is held in a conservation land trust. Yet it is only 5 miles to downtown Athens. With daily deer sightings the flourishing landscape boasts pecan, walnut, persimmon, magnolia, dogwood trees, azaleas and natural springs, the land truly offers a naturally beautiful oasis. While on city water and sewer a private well can provide drinkable water. Would make an excellent extended family homestead as two other buildings offer separate living quarters which also provide rent possibilities. There are three properties: the Main Home, 4500 sqft air controlled interior area, 4 bed, 4 full bath, 1 half bath, and 1 recreation room; Carriage Guest House built 1950s, 832 sqft, 2 bed, 2 full bath; Cottage built 1990s 700 sqft, 1 bed, 1 full bath; and Detached Garage built 2002, 4 bays. This property is truly special: a peaceful haven offering distinctive history spanning 200 years.
