Historic property in the heart of 5-Points, renovated in 2016-17, this is a true sanctuary, within blocks of UGA, Earthfare, quality local restaurants, bakery, coffee shop, and several parks. This is the former home of legendary UGA tennis coach Dan MaGill, and the property is truly special. There’s a gorgeous stone shoal creek on rear of property, a labyrinth of mossy paths, some stone or brick, terraces, an array of amazing plant material, a courtyard with lattice brick walls, and a large stone, terraced patio that allows one to overlook this magical botanical setting. One can feel the stress melt away while being present in this Zen-like environment. Not to overlook the home itself; the kitchen and baths have been artfully designed, the light fixtures throughout the house are stylishly stunning, with several antique crystal chandeliers mixed with unique modern fixtures. The home has a wonderful, open common living area that includes a charming old world feel, 32′ x 15′ space with old brick flooring, exposed rafters, fireplace, lantern chandeliers, and the 32′ wall to backyard is essentially a glass wall with private, green, vista views of nature, and provides access to patios, terraces. The kitchen is open to both this room and a dining area, and has been fully modernized, with new cabinetry, quartz counters, stainless appliances ( including gas range ), & large 32′ island with bar seating. A hallway leads to 3 BRs/2 baths on main level, including a lovely master suite wing with wonderful views overlooking the back yard. The master has its own fireplace with built-in cabinets/bookcase. The walk-in closet is huge, with several windows. The master bath exudes elegance. There is a large finished basement, with a huge common living area, large master suite, and there’s a large workshop/storage area as well. This project is nearing completion, and is worth viewing, as the house is charming, but the property is singularly unique and special. A rare find indeed.
