Property Description

A STUNNER WITH POOL AND DOUBLE GARAGE, SLEEPING PORCH, NEW HVAC and RECENT ROOF! Welcome to this charming 1916 Craftsman home, featuring a Neoclassical influenced interior that blends elegance with timeless craftsmanship. On a nearly half-acre double lot in Summerville, here you have great turnaround and parking space to host the next pool party or holiday gathering! This historic gem has had only two owners and has been cherished by the same family for over 50 years ; now ready to welcome new owners for fun times. It is just minutes from AU's Summerville Campus, Augusta Medical District, Surrey Center Shopping, and Downtown Augusta, making it the perfect place to call home. As you step inside, you are greeted by high ceilings and beautiful hardwood floors that exude warmth and character. The spacious living areas are accented by handsome fireplaces with Sheraton style mantles, each adding a touch of historic charm. The original skeleton keys, still functional, serve as a delightful nod to the home's storied past. The large windows bathe the interior in natural light, highlighting the intricate woodwork and craftsmanship throughout. The formal dining room, with its elegant moldings, pillars, and rich history, is perfect for hosting family gatherings and holiday dinners. The kitchen, a blend of vintage charm and modern convenience, offers ample cabinet space and room for culinary creativity. Just off the kitchen, a bright sunroom, converted from a back porch by Clifton Construction, doubles as a laundry room and provides the ideal spot for morning coffee while overlooking the expansive backyard. The kitchen and sunroom have beautiful heart of pine flooring reclaimed from a mill in downtown Augusta! The main level has a spacious primary bedroom with a gas-burning fireplace providing a serene retreat for relaxation served by a large bathroom with a separate shower and tub. An additional bedroom on the main level features freshly refinished floors and a decorative fireplace. Upstairs, you will find two more well-appointed bedrooms, each with its own unique charm, perfect for children or guests. Two additional bonus rooms would be perfect for a home office, playroom, or upstairs sunroom. Outside, the expansive front porch invites you to sit back and enjoy the view of the shaded front yard provided by five oak trees that line Heard Ave, the only lot with five oaks! The backyard offers plenty of space for outdoor activities and family fun, with a large saltwater pool and plenty of flower beds for the family gardener. The detached double garage with an extra single carport adds to the convenience. The mature landscaping, featuring a variety of blooming flowers and trees, creates a picturesque setting for this historic home, including a wall of tea olive trees extending down the driveway for added privacy. With two brand new AC and furnace systems, and newer hot water heater and roof, the heavy expenses have been taken care of by the seller. This exceptional residence offers the perfect blend of history, craftsmanship, and modern living. Don't miss the opportunity to explore all the potential this family home has to offer.
