The Porches on This Georgia Farmhouse Will Make Any Southern Heart Race
Ancient white farmhouses with sweeping porches are the kind of residence you expect to find in sleepy Georgia towns. And although this stately Watkinsville home looks like it’s weathered a century or more, it only recently celebrated its sixth birthday. (Don’t worry, we won’t tell!)
Located just outside of Athens, this 4,087-square-foot, four-bedroom, Southern farmhouse is nestled on 25 serene acres, and is just a quick drive from University of Georgia’s campus. Though we’re absolutely crazy about its gleaming hardwood floors and charming design features, the home’s three sprawling porches are easily its standout features. Is anybody else craving sweet tea?
Though it was built in 2013, this idyllic home looks and feels like it was plucked straight from the early 1900s, but without the complications that come with owning a historic home. Plus, in addition to a carport, it has a detached apartment above the three-car garage perfect for extra income opportunities.
“I think it just captures the imagination of everyone that sees it,” says listing agent Sara Witt. “The idyllic country life (right outside a big town). Peaceful, tranquil, and private.” You can say that again!
The home is currently listed for $1,425,000 with Renee Kunkler Realty. Click through for a tour!
