Description of 175 Hillcrest Avenue, Athens, GA 30606

In the heart of historic Cobbham, a beautiful turn of the century gem has finally come along. This circa 1910, cottage-style, two-story home is perfectly maintained & features a traditional, shot-gun hallway, heart pine flooring & ornamental fireplaces throughout. You enter the home through a white picket fence to be greeted by the charms of a quintessential, southern, wrap around, screened in porch--straight out of a Harper Lee novel--where you can enjoy all 4 seasons. A rich, wooden door with a glass doorknob opens into a cozy living room & music room where a shot-gun hallway leads to a large bedroom with cedar closet; a full guest bath & second guest room. The homey kitchen is the perfect, bright and sunny place for all of the gatherings and memories that will be made. An expansive picture window with views of a magnificent oak tree & lush side yard--complete with frolicking squirrels-- is the perfect place to enjoy morning coffee and doing the dinner dishes. A generous island allows for many chefs, as well as a space for homework, art projects, card games or a quick breakfast--and a roomy pantry gives added storage. A pass through leads directly to an elegant dining room. The spacious, master bedroom with en-suite bath is tucked perfectly at the off-street side of the home. An open stairway leads to a vaulted studio/artist's or yoga loft with a wall of gable windows overlooking the backyard. A very private 'tween' suite with full bath and an abundance of closet storage complete the upstairs and make an historic home a modern day marvel. From the ornamental fireplaces & the tall, full pane windows to the soaring, 10 foot ceilings, crown molding and upgraded baths and kitchen--you'll enjoy a turn-key experience that will allow you to start enjoying your neighborhood restaurants, bars, and coffee shops the day you move in. This home also features rare, off street, covered parking. Score! A new roof was added in 2015, keyless entry system, whole house water filtering system, programmable heating and air system, spacious closets, exterior and interior walls are fully insulated, all windows upgraded to double pane, storage for tools & mower in crawl space. Minutes from Regional Piedmont Hospital, downtown Athens, the YMCA & Bishop Park (Farmer's Market/tennis, etc.). This piece of history can be yours to call home.
