The real estate recovery
nationwide has been bumpy at best in some areas, but a few high-end properties
have hit the market here in Athens and the surrounding area.
Right now, the highest-priced single-family home for sale with an Athens address is this one at 103 Post Oak Trail. At $3.65 million, it features six bedrooms, six full and two half baths and 14 acres of grounds – plenty of room for a guest house, circular pool, patios and gardens. Take a peek inside 103 Post Oak Trail here (the official listing says: “Too many details to describe.”)
The second-most expensive single-family home on the market in the Athens area is at 7804 Jefferson River Road, between 129 and 441 south of New Kings Bridge Road. At $2.15 million, the 106-acre equestrian facility features a 16-stall show barn, six-stall guest barn, training field, miles of trails and more. The on-site home has six bedrooms, three baths and outside living areas. Check out the property at 7804 Jefferson River Road here.
The third-most expensive home: 279 Meigs Street, listed for $1.95 million. Built back in 1834 and surrounded by more than 2 acres of land, the Camak House has four bedrooms, one full and two half baths, plenty of natural light, modern upgrades and historic details. It is currently used as a law office. See photos of 279 Meigs Street in Athens here.
To be fair, there are two other properties in the greater Athens area with price tags of $2 million and up. At $2 million, there are 25 acres of land available at 200 Park West Boulevard.
And, at almost $2.6 million, 110 – 266 Lavender Road is also available – that’s the Lavender Lakes duplex community with 30-acres of land and 29 duplex homes.
