Property Description

Rare opportunity to own a grand old Athens home. The Bloomfield-Beusse house is one of the most historically significant homes in town with a well documented history going back to the 1830's. This home has been renovated and added onto over the years, and it is ready for the next owner. Rocking Chair front porch overlooks the mature front gardens. Wonderful natural light throughout this charming Center Hall 3/3.5 home with a possible fourth bedroom on main that has exterior access as well and would also make a good home office. Currently non-functional decorative fireplaces abound and could be restored to create gas "coal" fireplaces. Heart pine flooring throughout the main living areas and bedrooms. Formal Dining room adjacent to kitchen. Large eat in kitchen has be renovated to include a large island, curly maple cabinetry/built-ins, granite counters and more and overlooks the back porch, deck and fenced lawn and yard beyond with dappled sunlight. Half bath on main is nicely tucked away from the gathering spaces. The wall between two drawing rooms was removed in the late 19th Century, creating a huge parlor room. Upstairs contains a two-room owner's suite with full bath, a second en-suite, another large bedroom, and a hall bath that was recently redone. Great lot with expansive newer era two-car garage that has loads of potential to be much more than a garage. Additional space at the rear of the building would make for a great work shop, guest space, home office, or garden room by adding french doors at the back of building leading to a private courtyard type area. Concrete slab "footprint" is in place from the old library that was built there and eventually taken down...possible future guest quarters? Come for the house, stay for the neighborhood with great neighbors and easy access to downtown, campus, downtown Five Points, and more. This home is in an estate and being sold as-is. Trustee selling the home has never lived there. Showings must be scheduled in advance and begin May 3rd after 12:00 PM.
