Monthly Estimate* How much can I afford?

In-town, circa 1914, historic 2-story home located in the desirable, architecturally rich, Historic Boulevard neighborhood, and within walk/bike distance of everything that makes living in Athens unique and special: Downtown Athens, UGA, wonderful restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, arts & live music venues, community theater, an Independent film venue, food co-op, bookstore, Chase Street Elementary, the Arts Warehouse District (with trapeze arts venue), local breweries, parks, the Oconee River and Greenway Trails, Piedmont hospital, a community with veritable plethora of cultural diversity and arts-centric allure. The home is an approximately 2500’ 2-story, with abundant historic charm and character, featuring large rooms, tall ceilings, original pine floors throughout, chandelier lighting in every room, 6 fireplace mantles ( one chimney rebuilt ), huge central hallways on each floor, double French door openings, and large windows. The kitchen has been updated with custom pine cabinetry ( upper cabinets are backlit ), a farmhouse-style apron sink, granite counters and backsplash, stainless appliances, and a nice pantry; the kitchen opens to a lovely stone courtyard, perfect for outdoor dining, and includes a stone fire pit, stone bench seating, all enveloped in a nice privacy fenced back yard. Returning inside, the home has a floor plan that provides flexibility in how one might choose to live in it, such that an owner could opt to have more bedrooms or could prioritize having more communal living ares, office(s), or studio space. Also, both central hallways are large enough to use as functional communal space, and seem ideal for displaying art on the walls, perfect gallery space. Each floor has a bath; the main level bath is a large room with tall ceilings, which includes a steam shower, large soaking tub, chandelier, antique mirror, stained glass, and pedestal sink. The upstairs bath is more modest, though with an antique clawfoot tub/shower, pedestal sink, and is separated from the adjoining room by a partition wall, loft style. Additional features include a basement studio/storage space with exterior access, a 40’ front porch that sits high and fairly privately above the street, an ornate metal fenced front yard, and a rear carport. New HVAC system installed for main floor of house (June 2021). Priced at less than $200 foot, in a highly desirable In town neighborhood, this may not last long, and it may be challenging to find this much house ( with this much character ) for less moving forward.
