Hi blogger friends!
Thought I’d share with you all the condo we have for sale in Athens, GA.

Enjoy cheering on the Dawgs during the Fall?
I lived here in college and we rented it for some time afterward – now, it’s time to pass this fun place on to someone else. I absolutely loved every minute of living here! It’s super safe, and has tons of room – especially closets! It’s super easy to walk to/from Downtown Athens, to/from campus especially Sanford Stadium, with a primo location between Baxter and Milledge (Hwy 15).
The complex is Deering Oaks Condominiums. There’s a fantastic Home Owner’s Association that looks after everything along with weekly trash and recycling. My unit has the largest patio in the complex – perfect for a grill, table and chairs. We’ve got more parking too…awesome for company!
We recently renovated the space too…we updated from my bright college colors and made the baths and kitchen a bit more sophisticated. Please do pass this post along to anyone you think may be interested! And contact me with any additional questions:
Here are a few before shots pre-renovation:
The entire condo received a paint job – Benjamin Moore’s Coastal Fog now graces the walls; the closets, trim and doors are all Decorator’s White.
And now, the AFTER:
The entrance hallway received updated lighting fixtures along with the paint job. The flooring in the hallway and kitchen is parquet – so pretty! And there are two storage closets as well. The rest of the unit features a low pile Berber that’s perfect for high traffic.
The front door opens into a small foyer or vestibule.
The breakfast area or keeping room has a chandelier and bay window.
The small door on the right is a standing pantry – really, there is so much storage space here!
In the kitchen, the subway tile back splash was recently installed. The cabinets are solid wood and the appliances are all updated.
The living room:
The fireplace runs off gas and there are cable outlets on two walls. The French Doors open to the spacious patio and back grounds.
The hallway between the bedrooms features a storage closet, a linen closet, the laundry room, and the entrance to the guest bath.
The guest bath now has recessed lighting, raised cabinetry now painted white, white cultured marble counter tops and new hardware.
The laundry room has an updated washer/dryer and a new light fixture.
The guest room features two spacious closets. During my last years living here, I had two double beds in this room – it’s got plenty of room for a roommate or your weekend company!
The master bedroom has an updated light fixture and plenty of natural light. It’s very private too with window access to the rear grounds of the complex.
There are two large walk in closets too! I still miss these! 🙂
The master bath has both a standing tiled-in shower and a garden tub.
The counter tops are now white cultured marble, the cabinetry has been raised, and all has been painted white.

The back patio connects to a common space between all units which also serves as a fire escape. The nice landscaping and pretty plants are all maintained by the HOA.
The patio is double the size of the ones at other units so there’s plenty of room for your outdoor entertaining!
It’s a great, safe, convenient place to live or rent, or to enjoy on the weekends. Please do let me know if you’d like more information on this amazing property!
