About this listing
One of the most unique, historic homes in Athens, well appointed with rich a history, fun and eclectic. Fred Orr, a relatively well known architect in the SE designed the home for the Costa's. I purchased the home from the current UGA President.

Very unique Spanish Revival home, former home of the current President of the University of Georgia...this 1930's Spanish Bungalow in the heart of historic 5 points, walking distance to stadium, full 1/2 acre acre yard. All hardwood floor and tiles. Fred Orr, architect. 4 Bedroom, 3 bath. Only one block to Earthfare, Pub, 5 points shopping, Marker 7 Grill, 5 and 10, etc. Perfect place for concerts, football games, wedding parties or graduation. Plenty of parking and additional on street parking 10 foot ceilings downstairs and 9 upstairs. New state of the art Trane HVAC with zoning. All appliances, TVs, etc. The yard is perfect for a BBQ or just sitting outside to enjoy the gardens. The home resides in a typical 1920s or 1930s neighbor hood setting with sidewalks on both sides of the road with safe easy walking access to shops, restaurants and parks. The home has a new screened porch off of the kitchen, great for grilling out, eating and enjoying my private garden. Installed a new 4 Person Spa off porch.
In addition, I'm in the process of installing a 1200 square foot putting and chipping green on the side yard. It will be a state of the art practice facility for me, my children and guests. It is fully synthetic and offers perfect putting and chipping conditions with second cut and fringe. Pictures will be added as soon as it is complete. Perfect for those guests who want to brush up on their game or just enjoy some healthy golf competition with friends and family.
Guests will have access to everything in the house, including a larger weber grill and a big green egg. All stereo, xbox, TVs, etc. There is nothing in my house that I don't share with my guests. I just try to provide everything I can to make your stay enjoyable and I'm only a phone call away if you need anything.
Interaction with Guests
Usually, I give them the full tour and hand over the keys. Guests are usually gone by time I return if they have an early flight. I'm ALWAYS available by cell phone in case my guests need anything.
My neighborhood is convenient, right off Milledge and only 2 blocks to 5 points, both sides of the street have sidewalks and at night the home is very quiet. There are no student rentals on my block and we have 4 of the best restaurants in town at 5 points, a couple of blocks a way. 5 and 10, The Pub, Cince et diem(Spanish 5 and 10), Marker 7 Coastal Pub and an organic grocery store (EarthFare). Also many fun, eclectic shops and 2 coffee houses(Jittery Joes). For the real late night eaters, we have a "nice" waffle house" at 5 points.
Right off bus line, but more importantly walking distance to all UGA football, baseball and basketball.
Other Things to Note
Walking distance to Sanford Stadium and UGA. Both upstairs and downstairs has brand new heating and air, also new large hot water heater. One of the guests complained about a lack of warm water so water heater was replaced. Also, just added brand new 4 person BullFrog hot tub off the screened porch with new landscaping.
Kid friendly, no smoking and ONLY mature adults. Treat my house as you would treat your grandma's. If you kids enjoy being outside, I have a nice basketball goal, putting/chipping green and plenty of room for throwing a baseball or football. Try to find another home with a 1200 foot undulating putting/chipping facility on site!
