197 Childs is a charming historic home, currently serving as duplex, that represents an opportunity for the most walkable lifestyle imaginable. This great Pulaski Heights location is just two blocks from the west corner of Downtown Athens, and one block from the Prince Ave corridor, and while downtown adjacent the property preserves a buffer from the "busy" and offers a neighborhood feeling that couldn't be closer to everything. Doing both "downtown" and "neighborhood" this well feels like a truly remarkable achievement. If this isn't a 10 out of 10 on the walkable score than 10 out of 10 doesn't exist. The versatility here is equally as impressive. Currently serving as a duplex with move in ready, well improved spaces (extensively renovated in 2021), the future Owner could live in one side and preserve the income producing nature of the long-term rental space in the second unit. Or go in the opposite direction, convert to single family and use the lovely existing space. Yet another possibility, do a large addition off the back, and complete the dream home. The level, sloping corner lot, with curb cuts on both Childs and Barrow, make additions a breeze. In this location you can't over improve this property. 12' ceilings, heart pine floors, plaster, picture rail, heavy trim - all you would expect from an historic property, the sort of character that will forever carry value and remain sought after. Opportunities like this one are few and far between. What a lifestyle!
