One of the most unique, historic homes in Athens, well appointed with rich 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, Jere Morehead.

The space

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 floors and tile kitchen floor. Fred Orr, architect. 4 Bedrooms, 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.

Guest access

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. I'm ALWAYS available by cell phone in case my guests need anything.

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.

House Rules

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!

We had a great stay in Athens. Todd was a terrific communicator and was available throughout the weekend. The house was perfect for our group of seven with plenty of room. Great location within walking distance to bars, restaurants as well as the UGA campus and Sanford Stadium. We unfortunately did not have time to take advantage of the hot tub or practice putting green which are just two of the amenities at the home. We also enjyed spending time on the back porch as it was a beautiful weekend.

This house was absolutely perfect for our graduation party of 65 people- plenty of yard - we rented a tent and chairs and there was lots of green space available for all the games. The house is just a couple of blocks from 5 points- Todd was extremely helpful and responsive. House and beds were comfortable etc. would recommend

The size was perfect and the outdoor space was great for our graduation party. We had some older adults that had trouble with stairs and the bathroom in the main level was not usable for showering. The common areas were great for visiting!

Response from Todd:
Downstairs bathroom has a full size bathtub with a handheld shower handle. It would probably be a bit inconvenient to try to take a shower with the handheld showerhead, but it is possible.

Todd's home is spacious and comfortable with 4 good sized bedrooms. Todd is a very accommodating host, even allowing my grandson to use his daughter's guitar. He also purchased, at my request, green cleaners for the house that helped with one guest's allergies. There also is ample outdoor space. We used the porch, basketball hoop, putting green and batting cage. I would definitely stay there again as long as the hot water heater for the downstairs bathroom has been fixed.

Todd was a great host. He was very accommodating and helpful. The house is large and very spacious. We stayed the weekend for a football game and were able to easily walk to the stadium and tailgating area from the house.

Todd was a responsive and helpful host. His clean and spacious home was a great location for attending the UGA football game, hanging out with friends, and allowing the kids to enjoy the putting green, basketball goal, and spacious yard. The neighborhood is quiet and well maintained - a perfect oasis from the chaos of game day traffic, but with a short walk to UGA campus and stadium. We look forward to coming back in the coming years.

I live in Athens, GA with my two children, Harry and Penn. We love our historic intown home. Being right off the University campus allows us to walk to sporting events, restaurants and shops. Our elementary school is only a few blocks away so we enjoy walking to school and riding bikes. I'm a cyclist, runner and swimmer, I guess some call this a triathlete, but it always seems like a challenge to me. If you ever want or need to visit Athens, please see if my home will suit your needs. Thanks, Todd
