Athens condo description

Approximately 2,000 square feet. 2 large bedrooms, one with a king size bed, the other with 2 queen beds. One smaller bedroom with a bunk bed, regular size on bottom and twin on top. 2 full baths, one each with the 2 large bedrooms. A fully appointed kitchen with stove, oven, microwave, toaster oven, and refrigerator with filtered water. Dining area with large table and 8 chairs. Living room area with large sofa and 2 large chairs in front of an entertainment center with flat screen HD television & DVD player. Also, a fireplace with electric logs. A bar area with a beautiful bar and 2 bar stools, as well as a glass table with 2 bar stools. This all flows out to the balcony with a dining table and 6 chairs plus 2 chaise lounges. A great place to enjoy breakfast at the start of the day or a beverage at the end of the day. All of this under 16 foot, unfinished ceilings that make The Nest seem larger than it is.

There over 50 framed prints and items on display. Most are sports related and many are autographed by former and present UGA stars and coaches, PGA stars, etc. Many sports related books are in the entertainment center.

The building is only accessible by code at nights and we have parking under cover for one car and open parking for others. The elevator is only accessible by code.

The Nest is one of the most enjoyable and relaxing places that we have ever experienced. Purchasing the condo is the best real estate decision we ever made.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2006

                  About the owner: We are Pat and Bucky Jenkins. Pat grew up in St. Augustine, FL and Bucky in Sandy Springs in Atlanta. We met at UGA; Pat was a ZTA and Bucky was a KA. Both love UGA! We have lived on St. Simons Island since 1987, but spend as much time at The Nest as we can.

                  Why the Owner Chose Athens:
                  We looked at every condo in the Athens area; when we walked through the front door of this place we knew that we had found an amazing home. We hope that you will experience the same feeling.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Spending time in The Nest is truly time well spent! You can kick back and relax above the hustle and bustle below or get right in the middle of it all since the great things of Athens are right outside the door.
