Description

First time on the market in almost 50 years, this Federal Colonial Revival brick home is an elegant example of impeccable craftsmanship from the original slate roof down to the custom door hardware. Designed by BarberMcMurry in Knoxville, who have designed some of the most iconic buildings in East TN, this 1930s home is filled with natural light from the many large windows throughout and the historic character of the home remains. The traditional floor plan is perfect for entertaining with a formal living room featuring a wood burning fireplace and the large dining room with wainscotting can easily accommodate many guests. A favorite room on the main level is the mahogany paneled study with bookcase and a hidden dry bar, a perfect spot to curl up with a good book. The beautiful staircase leads upstairs to a landing and features all 4 bedrooms with the large owner's suite on one end of the home. You will appreciate that every room has pretty views of the property to enjoy. One bedroom shows the original oak hardwood floors that are believed to be throughout the home and the closets are cedar lined. The bathrooms feature the original tile which are still in pristine condition. The basement level has over 1,300 square feet of great storage. A perfect estate lot for hosting garden parties or large family gatherings and there have even been a few wedding receptions in its day. Beautiful mature oaks, dogwoods, magnolias as well as azaleas, boxwoods and roses all add to the classic charm of the residence. There is also a 20x12 outbuilding and dog lot tucked away in the backyard plus a fire pit area. The circle drive easily handles many cars and a stone walkway gracefully leads you to the front door which is enhanced by the gorgeous leaded glass sidelights. There are many ways to enjoy the outdoors with your choice of stone porches to choose from while enjoying your morning coffee or afternoon tea. This stately home is on the corner of Gettys Lane and Woodward Avenue in Athens' most desirable location and a five-minute drive will take you to I-75 for an easy trip to Knoxville or Chattanooga if needed. Nearby, the thriving arts center, Athens Area Council for the Arts, is a wonderful place to watch a play or music event or see a featured artist's work. Or head downtown for shopping with several specialty stores to choose from. Special homes in this location rarely come on the market, so don't delay in making your appointment to see this wonderful home. Extra lot available for purchase separately.
