Beautiful, Early 1900's in-town cottage (recently renovated) sits on lush wooded lot with majestic tree canopy, located within 1 block of YMCA, Bishop Park ( green space, sports fields, tennis courts, swimming pool, gymnastics...), local Farmers Market, & several blocks from new 60 acre, UGA medical school, and Health Sciences campus. Also, only 6 blocks from the Heart of Historic Normaltown, with bakery, coffee and fresh juice shops, local restaurants, and a thriving live music/entertainment venues. This charming Historic Cottage features an Artful Kitchen, custom reclaimed pine cabinetry, farmhouse style apron sink, high end stainless appliances ( with Jenn Air side-by-side refrigerator and gas stove, Bosch dishwasher). The bathroom was renovated with retro tile floors, has a claw foot tub/shower, and a custom vanity with vessel sink. There's central hallway off of the huge living room sized, relatively private, front porch. There are 12' ceilings throughout most of the house as well as stylish light fixtures. The Living room has a fireplace with with built-in antique cabinetry/bookcase to one side. There are oak, heart pine floors throughout, with Mexican tile floors in kitchen and vintage reproduction tile in bathroom. Classic wide trim throughout. The Dining Room has a double set French doors which open to a huge deck which has built-in seating, and adjoins a sweet courtyard with fire pit. When the weather is nice, opening these double doors expands the living area of the house, bring the outdoors inside, much like opening the front door to the huge covered porch. These functional outdoor living areas expand the feel and use of enjoying this beautiful home from another era and time. Finding a 100 plus year old home with the authentic feel of this home is rare these days, especially in-town, and at this price!
