Synthesis of old and new is seen in the kitchen, with its polished quartz stone counterops, modern appliances and new cabinetry, all sitting atop the heart pine floors of the century-plus home. A rear staircase goes from the kitchen to the 2nd and 3rd floors, providing a highly unique- and private- feature for the house.

 

Attention to detail in this house has led us to try and maintain as much of the history of the home as possible. Note the real leather wallpaper, the decorative oval window and the solid oak staircase. Many of the fixtures in this home remain the originals, infusing a sense of historical integrity and character into the home. This was the home of one of Athens' wealthiest 19th century merchants, and his families luxuries still show today.

Just inside the door, there is a large formal entry, and double-door access to the spacious living room surrounded with full-length windows. Inside the living room, a large fireplace (sealed up for energy-efficiency reasons) and original mantle grace the rooms decor.

The second floor bathroom showcases the modern amenities included in tasteful fashion. All renovations that have been done have sought to maintain the historical integrity of the house, as this large porcelain-covered bathroom shows. Top quality faucets, countertops and a huge walk-in shower have been installed to update the facilities to today's highest standards.

Wood floors, solid wood trim and stained glass adorn the stairs and hallway from the first floor to the second floor. At the back of this hallway, a 2nd story balcony overlooks the Foster Place community.

The sense of character and craftsmanship extend into the bedrooms as well as the common areas. Here, the original master bedroom shows its enormous size and its grandeur, complete with stained glass windows, a walk-in closet, and useful built-ins.
