Property description

Hodgson Lumpkin House
As you drive onto The Hill (common name for the location of houses) one of the first houses you come to is the picturesque Hodgson Lumpkin House, commonly known as the A&D House. The Plantation Plain style 2 story home is the most recent addition to The Hill but one of the oldest to Athens. The house was constructed in 1801 on Oconee Street, just past downtown Athens, GA. In the late 20th century the building had fallen into disrepair and was only used as storage for the owner. As a bicentennial project in 2001, the Epting’s took on the task of moving it to its current location and restoring this home to its original splendor. A full length screened in back porch was added for those perfect evenings on a rocking chair with a good book. The interior is completely furnished with period antiques and includes 3 bedrooms (2 queen beds and 2 twin beds, 2 twin air mattresses), 3 full baths, a living room, dining room, den, and kitchen.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: A native Athenian, Lee Epting has influenced and helped shape the local community for decades. His catering business began with Lee, one cook, and one bartender and has expanded in its inception as Epting Events with over seventy-five employees today. Lee’s major outside interest is Historic Preservation and he has served as a Trustee for the Athens Clarke Heritage Foundation while moving and restoring fourteen historic homes in and around Athens. Eight houses comprise what is known as The Hill. The latest venture has been the opening of Harry’s Pig Shop – a 'more than BBQ' restaurant in Athens, GA. He and son Ashley were Executive Producers on the feature film 'Not Since You' which was filmed on the Epting property called, The Hill.

Why the Owner Chose Athens:
With such a short drive to downtown Athens and a two turn drive to Atlanta, The Hill is the perfect place to experience a quintessential Southern town. This is a perfect place to settle in when coming for a University of Georgia Bulldog football game, seeing the home base for bands such as REM, The B52s, Widespread Panic, Of Montreal, Drive By Truckers, of The Whigs. Athens is like the Liverpool of the United States and has a fun and active downtown.

If you are curious about anything in Athens, chances are we can help!
