Description

A very unique opportunity!! A historic property with your own rental home in your backyard on the beautiful sidewalk lined street of Dearing. This home has been known as the Pink Chimney and is one of the oldest homes in Athens. This home was renovated in 2015, and won the Historic Preservation award the same year. Many original elements of the home were carefully restored and renovated. The home has the original heart of pine wood floors, as well as the original triple sash windows. Adam-style mantels with the sunburst motif are still part of the home. These were typical in the Federal period. In 1961, Rev. A. Dawson Teague painted the chimneys of the home pink, which affectionately earned the home's nickname of "Pink Chimneys". In 2015 the home was totally renovated and restored, including new insulation, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, roof, almost all the original heart of pine floors, 4 of the original 6 fireplaces/mantels, and two claw foot tubs were refurbished. Additional heart pine rescued from the old Jittery Joes roaster were added where needed. An addition was added at the time of renovation and includes the playroom, screened porch, guest bedroom, laundry room, and guest bathroom. This beautiful historic home has received several awards and been featured by Southern Living when UGA played Alabama in the National Championship football game. Some of the accolades of this home: winner of the Athens Heritage Award for Outstanding Rehabilitation and Athens Walking Tour as a point of historical interest in Athens. As you step on the front covered porch with brick floors you immediately start to notice the detail of this masterpiece. The main home has a beautiful double foyer, case opening to the dining room and kitchen. The kitchen has been remolded with stainless steel appliances, farm sink, island, and solid surface countertops. The kitchen has a breakfast bar and enough room to have a breakfast table in front of the two built-in desks. Your guest will enjoy having their own suite in the behind the kitchen. The back of the home has a wonderful second den/playroom. Having the master suite tucked away on the right hand side of the home provides you with lots of privacy. You will love the bathroom with a soaking tub, double vanities, walk-in shower, water closet and a nice size walk-in closet. Windows, Windows, Windows everywhere with an enormous amount of natural light. Having the great room located between the dining room and master bedroom is a perfect place for the overflow of a party or just having guest over. Upstairs there are 2 large bedrooms with hardwood floors, great natural light and a renovated bathroom. The guest home is such a bonus and money maker. It was added in 2015 and is an adorable little home with 400+ square feet. The inside features a great room/small kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. It even has it's own rocking chair front porch. It has been Athens top Air BnB. The current owner installed more can lighting, an electric gate for the parking area in back and your own dog shower area on the side of the home. The yard is over a half acre and landscaped with lovey variaties of plants. You are walking distance to downtown, the football stadium and Five Points. Don't miss the opportunity to own part of Athens history in 328 Dearing Street.
