The Space

Very unique Spanish Revival home, former home of the current President of the Unniversity of Georgia...this1930'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.

Guest Access

Guests will have access to everything in the house, including a larger weber grill (email hidden) 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.

The Neighborhood

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.

  • Our host at the Spanish Bungalow was very nice, and provided a lot of helpful advice. The house proved to be a great location for our family to get together and spend time around the graduation weekend ceremonies. The public spaces in the house are very comfortable, but the bathrooms are subject to the normal problems in an old house - small, with hot-water management difficulty! 7 members of our family stayed at the house, which was perhaps a little more than optimum if you like a lot of privacy.

  • We had a 90th birthday with family on a lovely weekend. The house had great space for all to come and be together and have good conversations. Todd (email hidden). Beautiful grounds.

  • Came into town for the Georgia-South Carolina game. Todd was extremely accomodating and the house is conveniently located right off of campus. He was very easy to deal with and answered the many questions that I had about the area. If I ever decide to visit Athens again, I will be sure to contact Todd.

About
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
