Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

Why Athens:
I just loved the idea of having a historic home from an era gone by and the location just can not be beat. The house was originally part of the Cloverhurst Estate that encompassed over 240 acres of the current Five Points area. Sitting just two blocks from S. Milledge Avenue and a block from Baxter Street I just knew that this home was the one for me. I now have the beautiful historic home that I was looking for, and the ability to walk to all the shops and restaurants in Five Points as well as the UGA campus, and downtown Athens in just a matter of minutes.
