From the Zillow listing:


1920 Bungalow makeover, updated and looking good! This super well built cute home has the feel of a quaint cabin and has stood the test of time and been updated and modernized throughout the years. When you step inside, you can see the terrific vintage touches in all the wonderful ways, while also feeling like you are in a recently built home. Exterior walls have been extra insulated to block road noise. Home is in good shape inside and out, with a large family room and a second bedroom that could flex as an awesome office, nursery, or artist’s retreat. Exterior siding is low maintenance. Long lasing metal roof. Wrap around porch on two full sides, outdoor cooking area, garden bed, fruit trees everywhere! Did I mention a laying room for chickens and the buyer can keep the chickens if desired, due to seller moving out of the country! Out buildings can be very usable with a little TLC. This could be your Athens Weekend Retreat to satisfy the farmer and land lover in all of us!
