Sheltered by large magnolias and a giant cedar, Beaumont House is an Anglophile's hideaway in the heart of Five Points, full of books and art and places to read or simply to enjoy the day, and an easy walk from the University, restaurants and shops.
This cheerful, cozy house is 1900 square feet on a single level, presently arranged as a master bedroom with queen bed and bath, a guest bed room with double bed and bath across the hall, a den with a day bed and another full bath, a living room with fireplace (gas log) and a dining room, a separate study, a fully-equipped kitchen with two ovens, a laundry space, a utility room, and a one-car garage. The house has hardwood floors throughout, and is furnished with oriental rugs, fine contemporary furniture, antiques, and original art, including by Athens artists. In addition, off the kitchen at the back, a screened porch and a deck overlook a deep, shady lot of trees and shrubs that screen the property from the neighbors. The front of the house looks out toward a triangular park formed by the intersection of Milledge Circle and Westview Drive but is completely screened from the street by two very large magnolias, affording a pleasant sense of seclusion. An enormous Deodar cedar also stands at one end of the house.
The full house and its amenities are yours to enjoy, including local telephone service, WiFi, cable TV, large flat screen TV, stereo system, and a security system.
