Property Description

Built in 1941 by notable local contractor Bill Mathis, this Five Points gem has many of the features Mathis would instill in his personal home: simple yet durable external features combined with superior interior features and finishing materials such as high ceilings, smooth plaster, oak tile floors, solid doors, built-ins in dining room, two natural stone fireplaces, and a daylight basement. This home was occupied by members of the same family for over 70 years, and has not been occupied by the seller. Therefore, there is no disclosure and the property is being sold "as-is." The lot, while listed in tax records as 0.44 acres is recorded as 0.57 acres and is an exceptional large, flat estate lot. It goes without saying, this home and lot are exceptional Five Points examples, however, it only gets better. There is also a detached 3-car garage with a dwelling above. Not one, but two bedrooms, kitchen, bath, and living room make this additional abode a carriage house, not a mere garage apartment. This Five Points find has incredible estate potential. Enter Armentrout, Matheny, Thurmond, the exclusive Athens architectural firm, and their exquisite design for updating this jewel to a modern marvel of Athens fine living. It's all included in the sale. The plan transforms this estate home into a palatial palace of modern luxury and taste featuring a massive open living/dining/kitchen area, incredible screened porch or sunroom with architectural fireplace, and a substantial master suite with a master enclave sitting room, his and her vanities and walk-in closets, and every bedroom (5 in the main residence) has its own private bath as part of this exquisite plan. The home gains an over-sized under kitchen parking garage with room for 2 large vehicles, completely sheltered from the elements and increasing the total property enclosed garage capacity to 5 vehicles. And yet, there still remains enough impervious lot areal to allow for a decadent swimming pool and outdoor kitchen area. The discerning buyer of this extraordinary property will leave closing with the plans in hand to address each and every luxurious whim or longing his or her heart may desire. The property is owned by a licensed broker in the State of Georgia.
