Don’t judge a book by its cover! Circa 1942 in Georgia. $325,000

April 14, 2021

Don’t judge a book by its cover! The interior was surprising with this one! This home was built in 1942. It is located in Athens, Georgia. The home features a large covered front porch, original hardwood floors, wide baseboards, original mantles, original fretwork, and a clawfoot tub. I’m not a fan of the kitchen. Looks like they tried to do a faux treatment on the cabinets, but I’m not feeling it. The landscaping could use some work. One bedroom, two bathrooms, and 1,182 square feet. $325,000
