Property Description

Classic English Manor in the heart of Athens! Unequaled curb appeal and charm will greet you at this estate reminiscent of an English Manor, complete with stone and cypress wood exterior, 50-yr cedar shake roof and stately solid wood doors. Mature landscape, shrubbery and perennials line the 2.94-acre lot, in the gated River Shoals subdivision, nestled on the edge of the Middle Oconee River. Sprawling main level includes owner's and guest suites, spacious living room with wood-burning stove, dining room, breakfast room, keeping room and chef's kitchen. The kitchen is well-appointed with custom cabinetry, Italian granite countertops, island prep sink, subzero refrigerator, professional grade 6-burner gas range with electric convection oven and side gas oven. Separate ice maker, butler's pantry and large storage pantry make entertaining a delight. The keeping room offers a stone fireplace with wood-burning stove, built-in cabinetry, and vaulted ceiling. Step out of the keeping room through one of three sets of French doors onto the screened porch. The owner's suite includes double French doors and a fireplace. The main level is defined by expansive windows overlooking the private, wooded property and lovely heart pine floors throughout the common areas. Finishing off the main level includes mudroom full bath, half bath and laundry room with sink and extra storage. Upstairs you find a loft with heart pine flooring and three guest bedrooms all with ensuite tiled bathrooms and ample storage. Travel down the finished staircase to the full daylight, walkout basement (unfinished) with workshop (220V outlets), plumbed and ready for your heart's desire. The terrace level leads out to a covered porch, overlooking the back acreage and winding creek. Termite bonded and transferrable service contract to maintain gas furnaces (upstairs unit has been replaced). Covered walkway leads to the 3-car garage (220V outlet) with additional unfinished (plumbed) space perfect for teen/in-law suite. Additional parking pad at the top of the driveway with terraced steps leading to front door. Gated, quiet estate neighborhood convenient to downtown Athens, the University of Georgia and both local hospitals.
