TAKE A STEP BACK IN TIME AND OWN A PIECE OF ATHENS' HISTORY....Originally brought to life in the 1800's, this stunning Victorian home exudes fine appointments, rare, incoming producing possibilities, and a name of its own...LaPacanne, “The Pecan Tree”. Throughout the years LaPacanne has been meticulously restored and renovated to maintain the exquisite detailing of the original architecture and period era appointments found throughout. While offering a footprint of yesteryear, this home is also updated with fine modern-day amenities to ensure comfortable living. Updated bathrooms, walk-in closets, gourmet chef's kitchen, and multiple laundry rooms can be found throughout this sprawling home. Hosted in desirable Normaltown, the convenience of this stellar location is hard to match. Upon approach you will be greeted by the grand wrap around front porch where the details begin to unfold. Ushered into the welcoming foyer, you will be met with oak flooring, 12ft ceilings, dental molding, ample doorways with bullseye block molding, and a fireplace with a gorgeous antique glass tile facade accented by an oak mantel (there are 11 of these fireplace mantels disbursed throughout). The foyer is flanked by a guest room or optional parlor with full bath, while to your right is the formal living room. This wonderful space flows effortlessly to a generous-sized dining room that could easily seat 12+. Imagine all the formal dinner parties that took place in this very spot. Just off the rear foyer is the vast owner's suite complete with a private dressing room, walk-in closet, steam shower and garden tub. The rear foyer also guides you to the beautiful stained-glass window in the breakfast room, adjacent to the modern kitchen. A home chefs dream, this culinary masterpiece is upgraded with an abundance of custom cabinets, gleaming granite counters, hand-laid brick floors, and a complete stainless-steel appliance package. Through the kitchen there is a large sunporch overlooking the privacy-fenced backyard and provides staircase access to the walkout basement with PLENTY of storage and a full bath. The second level of the home continues to impress with heart pine floors and 9ft ceilings. Upon arrival on the 2nd floor you will be greeted by a spacious bonus room/optional bedroom with windows overlooking the front yard. The upper level is complete with an additional bedroom suite hosting a private full bath featuring a claw foot tub, a third bedroom accompanied by a private sunroom, and a perfectly detailed full bath. Unlike many other homes in the area, this extensive property boasts a rare option... income producing opportunity! Presenting a complete 3BR/2.5BA apartment addition, Airbnb/rental potential is quite favorable in this much desired neighborhood. Historic charm, extensive space, combined with an unbelievably convenient location, is the epitome of what LaPacanne has to offer.
