Property Description

Two houses in one! Designed for multi-generational living or passive income in mind. Unassuming from the street, the same family has loved, improved, and beautifully maintained this 1938 brick cottage-style home for nearly 30 years. Hardwood floors flow throughout both homes. Custom plantation shutters, large windows, skylights, and glass doors provide abundant natural light, creating an open, spacious feel. The homes flow wonderfully from room to room, indoors to outdoors, surrounded by gardens, bulbs, perennials, and shrubs that flower at different times throughout the growing season. The fenced-in backyard features a garden shed and an expansive vine-covered trellis, creating a serene oasis with trumpet flowers, jasmine, and climbing roses. In the original part of the main house, a second bedroom on the main, tiled bathroom, period-style living room, and dining room blend elegantly with the modern addition to the home. Off the dining room, a recently enclosed sunroom adds square footage to the public record. In 2000, the home underwent an attic expansion. Upstairs is a flexible, open space divided into two sizable bedroom areas, a smaller alcove, and a large walk-through closet. The bath features a jacuzzi tub and a separate shower. This space could be reimagined into an incredible owner's sanctuary or formally divided into multiple bedrooms. Built-in bookcases, lift-top window seats, and two enclosed attic spaces provide plenty of extra storage. The upstairs is freshly painted, and the floors have just been refinished. In 2016, another major renovation added a dedicated laundry room, a primary suite on the main floor, an open-concept gourmet kitchen, and a great room to the main house. The primary bedroom suite features a walk-in closet (a rarity in Normaltown), ample light, and a bathroom with a large stained-glass transom window, travertine flooring, and slate and marble tile. A pair of antique mirror bathroom doors and reclaimed pocket doors add to the artistic aesthetic. The renovated great room/kitchen has vaulted ceilings and recessed LED lighting, creating an expansive yet comfortable space for entertaining. French doors in the family room open to a side porch, perfect for outdoor grilling and eating al fresco. In the kitchen, a large island, green marble countertops, dual sinks, plentiful storage, and top-of-the-line appliances make the kitchen a chef's delight. A second set of French doors in the family room reveals an adjoining screen porch. Beautifully imagined with arched, reclaimed wood ceilings, the porch connects to a second home. This house is private, with two dedicated entrances. Its vaulted high ceilings and multiple skylights flood the space with light. It has a full gourmet kitchen, a gas-log fireplace in the living room, and a large bath. The bath features an ADA-compatible stone-tiled walk-in shower and a beautiful stained glass window. Through a sliding glass door, there is a separate covered porch. The primary bedroom has a walk-in closet. A second bedroom/office space and laundry room complete the second home. The attic space is accessible by a pull-down ladder. This peaceful retreat is just a quick walk to Normaltown's restaurants and shops, Bishop Park and the Farmer's Market, and UGA's Health Sciences campus. Schedule to see this beautiful, one-of-a-kind home today, and prepare to be amazed.
