Single Family Detached
Welcome to 220 Dearing Street. Built in 1835 by Athens architect Ross Crane, this Colonial Revival was home to Young L.G. Harris for nearly fifty years and has since been lovingly maintained. This home is located in the Dearing Local Historic District along with two charming local favorites: Finley Street, which is the last remaining street to feature Belgian Block paving, and The Tree That Owns Itself. Though the home once faced east toward Pope Street, in the early 1900's it was moved to front Dearing Street and the Victorian-style porch was added. Though already rich in character and history, this home offers endless possibilities for its next owners. The five bedroom/three bathroom home features a wide and bright central hallway. To the left of the entry is a large study with several built-ins, a fireplace, and abundant natural light. To the right of the entry is a large living room with gorgeous hardwood floors and a fireplace. A third fireplace is the focal point of the formal dining room, large enough to seat twelve or more guests. Previously a screened porch, the eat-in kitchen offers sweeping views of the garden-style back yard. This rear addition increases the home's footprint by 400 sq. ft. totaling over 3,000 sq. ft. of living space. Also on the main floor is a generously sized bedroom with connected bathroom, perfect for a main-floor master suite. Heart-pine stair treads lead to the second story which is serviced by a new central HVAC system installed in 2017. The second floor hallway is wide, spacious, and could serve as an office, play area, library or bonus room. The possibilities are endless. Heart-pine floors run throughout the second story of this home. The four upstairs bedrooms are serviced by two jack-and-jill bathrooms and each bedroom has a unique view of this one-of-a-kind property. Other notable features include a storage basement with exterior access, a large brick patio for entertaining, off-street parking, and a private back yard suitable for a pool or possible expansion of the home's footprint if desired. Located between the highly desirable Five Points neighborhood and the Cobbham Historic District, this home ranks high among walkability and convenience. Easy access to shops and restaurants, Downtown Athens, and The University of Georgia. Zoned for Barrow Elementary.
