Welcome to 195 Henderson Avenue, part of the History Village of Athens, this house was built during the time where the Classic City's architecture truly began to take shape. Having undergone multiple restorations and renovations since it was built, this home is truly a spectacular example of how modern comforts can blend with classic Southern Gothic architecture. Truly one of the grandest homes on one of the grandest streets in Athens, you will be delighted upon first entry. The antique brick path from the street leads you to the huge rocking chair front porch and old wooden door with beautiful leaded glass. The foyer entrance boasts a grand staircase with original banister railing. On either side of the foyer are the formal living room and dining room, each of which boasts an original coal burning fireplace with beautiful mantles and tile work. The kitchen has been completely updated with tons of custom maple cabinetry, granite countertops, and shelving all built to keep the third original fireplace in tact and present. Off the kitchen is a comfy fourth fireplace in a keeping room / eat-in dining area. In the rear of the main level is the laundry room, a room that could be used as a bedroom / office, and a 1/2 bathroom. The backyard boasts a rear covered rocking chair porch and deck, and a private and large brick-walled backyard. Upstairs are three bedrooms, one of which is the master bedroom boasting a beautifully renovated master bathroom with slipper tub, separate tiled shower, and dual vanities. The second upstairs bedroom has an ensuite bath with basketweave tile and linen closet. There is also a third upstairs large bedroom with hall access bathroom. The beautiful landscaping, pea gravel driveway, and two-car garage with additional storage really round out the beauty and charm of the property. Full history available upon request.
