A Bit of Brooklyn in Athens, $179,000

Imagine how much this Athens row house would cost in the city! Well, in Athens, a three-story, four-bed, two-family brownstone of sorts, on one of the main commercial drags (albeit a quiet one) will run you less than two-hundred-grand. It has some updates (tin ceilings, exposed brick, new bath fixtures) and some original details. It’s narrow, but could make a very cool live-work situation for the right buyer. Taxes are estimated at around $2,500, which is very reasonable.

  1. Love it! Wonder how easy/hard it would be to rent those apartments for income. Also wonder if there’s a garden behind… intriguing.

  2. This months Country Living magazine has an article about a bath redo of a house owned by their editor. I believe it is in Athens.
