Description

In town, unique historic property, once a neighborhood grocery store, that dates back to 1897, and was open until 1980. Located in one of the oldest areas in Athens, the Chicopee-Dudley neighborhood, on a corner lot, its 2 blocks from crossing the Oconee River in one direction, and 2 blocks to the entrance into Dudley Park, and accessing the River Greenway and Firefly Trails in another. This is the most green-centric area in Athens, with multiple parks, a major river, creeks, multiple walk/bike trails, and an abundance of wildlife, yet only blocks from both Downtown and the University of Georgia campus. The house has been fully and artfully restored from the foundation to its metal roof. The floor plan allows for an array of possible uses, as the original layout of the store that faced Arch Street, and the attached living space behind the store have been renovated such that it can be used as 2 distinct living spaces, or by opening connective doors, it can be one larger living space. Thus, it could be a single home, 2 very unique Airb&b spaces, live in one side and rent the other, or share one side as an in-law, guest, or family suite. Currently, there are 2 large kitchens and 3 beautifully tiled baths. If only 1 kitchen is needed, the other can be easily dismantled and used differently. The property has wood floors throughout, some wood walls and ceilings, and some amazing custom built doors that were repurposed from the historic warehouse downtown that housed Jittery Joes coffee house and roasting facility. Some of these doors are barn style while others have colored glass panels or are hinged windows built into door that open. Additionally, theres a porch that wraps around 2 sides of the house, and a screened rear porch with privacy lattice work. The electrical, plumbing, heat/air systems have all been updated, so this is the best of both worlds, a historic structure, full of character and history, yet with modern amenities, the restoration already completed. Another feature, despite being so conveniently close to Downtown and campus, this block of Poplar sees very little traffic, thus is a fairly quiet location. Also, both Poplar and Arch Streets have sidewalks, so travel to Downtown, UGA, and parks are quite pedestrian friendly. This is a rare property, in one of Athens oldest neighborhoods, conveniently located near so many of the things that make living in Athens special. A must see property!
