    Property Details

    Designed by renowned architect, Fred Orr, and built in 1911, this Craftsman style home on Mell Street is an Athens gem. The expansive front porch draws you to this house and it is perfect for morning coffee or evenings with friends and neighbors. The front door is actually a Dutch door, likely made on site of heart pine and beveled glass. The front room gives a glimpse of what is to come throughout the house: high ceilings, original hardwood floors, extensive trim, beautiful fireplaces. The rooms to the left and right feature fully functioning pocket doors that have been refinished to perfection. The large dining room easily seats 12 and has enough room for serving and storage pieces. Adjacent to the dining room is a butler's pantry or breakfast room. The updated kitchen features ample storage with custom cabinetry and plenty of room for cooking. The room to the right of the front door could be an office, a library, or a small family room. There are two, true bedrooms on the main floor. One of those is the master bedroom which was created out of space added to the house in the early 1970s. Local Athenians may remember a dance studio added on the back of this house. The master suite was created from that space. The bedroom itself is large and light filled. The bathroom features two vanities and a large shower. The closet is generous and is completed with cabinetry for organization. The second main floor bedroom is one of the original bedrooms in the house. Its bath is across the hall, and, though renovated, still has the original Kohler cast iron tub from 1910. There are two other rooms on the main floor: a large storage closet and an office/study. These rooms offer lots of possibilities for creating an additional bedroom with en suite bath OR expanding the master suite. It's rare to find a home in Five Points with this many options currently under roof!Upstairs are two very large bedrooms and a full bath. The floors are heart pine and the upstairs hall features built in drawers that were very common in that time period. There is also a small kitchenette upstairs. The sellers have updated the electricity, plumbing, and HVAC systems in this lovingly maintained home. The old cellar is now a clean, dry basement space perfectly safe for storage. The roof and exterior paint are in excellent condition. A stone's throw to David C. Barrow Elementary School and all that Five Points has to offer, 163 Mell Street is the Athens home you've been waiting for. Your biggest decision will be where to sit on the porch!
