Wonderful listing in the very heart of Cobbham, one of the most sought after addresses in town. Located adjacent to everything and absolutely move-in-ready, this 4 bed/2.5 bath home is relaxed yet refined, the perfect vibe that defines our great town. Stately 4 side brick exterior includes a brick veranda with knee wall out front and overlooking the action below on the sidewalk yet removed enough for private conversations/gatherings. The back fenced yard also includes another private patio and this whole area is ready for your landscape designer to take you to a whole other level. Ample off street parking is located at the end of a private alley out back and has easy ingress/egress. Main floor has hardwoods throughout and includes a formal living room with great natural light and the front staircase to the second story. Beyond the living room through a cased opening and hanging sliders is a striking and welcoming great room with soaring ceilings and massive windows, a very large fireplace with abundant gas logs for easy mood creation, a spacious dining area and another large living room area as well as a roomy eat-in kitchen that is open to all the action. Kitchen includes the stainless appliance package, subway tile backsplash, granite counters and more. Around the corner there is a side entrance, laundry area, flex space for a home office or the peloton and rowing machine. The main floor guest bath is tucked off the back foyer, which also has backyard/patio access, and the back staircase to the versatile second story. The second story has hardwoods as well (tile in baths) and has two bright bedrooms off the front landing with a nicely renovated bathroom that is in keeping with the historic nature of the home. Three more steps above the landing is a third bedroom with access to another full bath and bedroom beyond. There is a door here between the middle bedroom and back hall, so one could easily capture all of the back half of the second story to create a private owner's suite with exclusive back stair access. The home is built over two roomy cellars with ample storage and home workshop space. This is a must see iconic Athens home at a price that is not trying to smash ceilings. If you are associated with Piedmont Hospital, then this home would be an absolute lifestyle game changer. Park the car and leave it for the week. Many residents of Cobbham walk to campus and downtown for work and play, and the heart of Normaltown with the med school/health science campus, restaurants, bars, cafe, brewery and more literally just blocks away. This well maintained home has many updates including the kitchen, baths, roof, HVAC, fencing, undercarriage work in the two cellars, updated plumbing and electric and much more. This was the home of American Artist Lucy May Stanton (1875-1931), who lived here and was also responsible for the addition at the back of the home, which was inspired by a home in Boston that she loved. This truly historic gem, lovingly cared for by the current owner, is now ready for its next steward. Please make sure to see the 3D Tour for an immediate walk through of the home then book an in person viewing.
