Check the cookie-cutter at the curb as you approach this artsy, custom-designed home! Tucked away on a 3-acre lot on a quiet cul-de-sac street, you'll enjoy all the benefits of in-town living (easy access to uptown Athens, public utilities, and more) along with the privacy and quietude that a rural lifestyle affords. Attention to detail is evident the moment you arrive, from the cut sandstone steps & flagstone walkways, to the artful fencing & professionally-laid pavers that define the driveway and parking areas. Inside you'll find a surprisingly spacious interior, with a centrally-located kitchen flanked by a cozy library with working brick fireplace and no less than 2 LRs, each with its own spectacular view -- one of the prodigious front flower beds and the other of the terraced landscaping, perennial flower beds and woods outback. Rounding out the main level are two large, light-filled BRs, a spacious office, full bath, plus laundry. As if that's not enough, you'll find two additional BRs and a full bath on the upper level. Additional perks include hardwood floors, skylights, built-in bookshelves, outdoor hot tub, workshop, goldfish pond, and more. Come on home-it's time now!
