Description

Welcome to 567 Fortson Road in highly sought after Five Points. This elegant 5 BR 5.5 BA home designed by award winning architect David Matheny is situated on almost two acres of wooded land nestled off of West Lake Drive in Athens, Georgia. A long circular drive leads to this traditional and stately brick home. The open foyer leads to a formal living room and dining room featuring lovely oak hardwood floors, custom built-ins and detailed custom millwork. An expansive chef's kitchen for entertaining has solid surface countertops, custom cabinetry, island, built-ins, walk-in pantry, a solid bank of windows / door allowing light and views from the back yard. Eat-in breakfast and seating areas, access to laundry room, powder room and two-car garage beyond. Generous screened porch off back of house for almost year-round use. Sophisticated study / den with dedicated full bathroom also on this main floor as well as the private primary suite with fireplace, full bathroom and ample closet spaces. Upstairs there is a casual landing area for sitting or reading. Three large bedrooms with two full bathrooms on this level. Plenty of closet spaces as well as a storage room round out this area. Terrace level there is a sun filled office, exercise area, full bathroom and a large game / media room with kitchenette, built-ins and full-size pool table. Exterior access and light filled windows create a cheery flex space to escape on this lower floor. Voluminous storage room and mechanical room also on this level. Thoughtfully manicured grounds with walking paths and patio surround this beautiful home and allow for a lovely and tranquil in-town get-away just minutes from Beechwood Shopping Center, Five Points Business District, medical centers, downtown Athens and The University of Georgia.
