There are a total of 4-5 bedrooms, and 4 baths. The upstairs rooms are huge and have vaulted, natural wood, open rafter ceilings, with skylights, pine floors, and a wall of windows. One of these rooms could serve as a 3rd common common living area, a theater room, or be part of an in-law or teen suite, possible a recreational room or home music or art studio. Additionally, there are 2 large common living areas on the main floor, each with a fireplace, a formal dining room with antique double French doors that open to a private, brick patio, with green vista views, that feel as if you may be in the mountains. The updated kitchen easily connects to all of these rooms, and has new stainless appliances, a including gas stove, features a very large island, stone counters, tile backsplash, and oak cabinetry. There are 3 large bedrooms and 3 baths on the main level, though one could easily be an office. Front and back porches both have brick floors, and the front porch conjoins with the brick patio. The front porch has grand columns which make for an impressive entry. The landscape is wonderfully mature, with an abundance of evergreens: azaleas, camellias, gardenias, boxwoods, bamboo, magnolia, as well as dogwoods, crepe myrtles, perennials, and an array of hardwood trees. The property has a rare 2 entrances, from both Fortson, with a circular driveway leading to the front entrance, and Greenbriar from the rear, which leads to an attached carport and rear porch. The back yard is lush and nicely terraced. Also, there’s a very unique, detached pergola, with metal roof, and bench seating around a fire pit. Oh, there’s also an unfinished basement, providing several rooms of storage, as well as a storage room off the carport. This is a unique property, a rare combination of size, large lot, privacy, very centrally and conveniently located to everything in-town, UGA campus, Downtown, parks, restaurants, shopping, hospitals, public schools….Definitely worthy of checking out!
