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.
Our stay was wonderful. It meet all our needs! Loved it! Hope to book for next Christmas!
This house was amazing. We rented it to use as our home base for my daughters wedding which was at the State Botanical Gardens in Athens. The location was perfect, neighborhood was quiet and the house size was wonderful. The girls in the bridal party came and spent the day of the wedding here, had lunch, and had their hair and makeup done. This house has everything that you could possibly need while away from your own home. Much nicer than any hotel in Athens. Brad who handled the rental was so nice and easy to work with.
Great house and location. I would definitely recommend it for UGA events. Very comfortable, charming and conveniently located.
The house was superb! Wonderful location. Great for children as well as adults. Thank you so much!
We came down for a football game and it was a perfect location! Walking distance to Downtown, 5 Points and the Sanford Stadium!
4 of us came into Athens for the 2013 AthHalf (half marathon) and were impressed by the pictures but blown away by the actual house. Coming in from Chattanooga after work, our 9:30pm arrival could not have been nicer since we didn't know what we were in for. Brad had the keys waiting for us, so we didn't need to stress about coordinating anything.
The layout of the house is incredible -- an open floorplan makes this a very social house; I can only imagine how great this place is on a game day. Massive TVs in the two (2!) sitting areas let us put 2 games on, or game in room 1 with HGTV in room 2 depending on the audience.
Other items of note: gas oven, so plan on doing some cooking at home, amazing HE front-load washer/dryer, and ample parking for multiple cars. The house even came with a good selection of menus and (!) a Kroger card. It's central location put it within a mile or so from Fresh Market, Earth Fare, and a Kroger. For coffee, 5 Points is a 2 minute drive or 15 minute walk to Jittery Joe's.
Really loved the home and looking forward to our next trip.
The home is located right in the heart of Five Points and is a short walk to the University of Georgia campus as well as the vibrant downtown scene in Athens.
