5040 MACON HWY Bishop, GA 30621
$499,000 Sold! 3bd / 2fb

This is the one you've been waiting for...quintessential turn of the century farmhouse with all the conveniences and pleasures of modern living. You'll find tongue & groove ceilings and floors, barn wood shutters, original heart of pine flooring in the kitchen, DR & upstairs, 1920's oak flooring in remainder of downstairs, handsome molding & trim, high ceilings, and period-designed bathrooms. Add to that a completely renovated kitchen with quartz countertops and island, custom cabinetry, marble backsplash, stainless energy-efficient appliances, including a commercial-grade gas range with custom-built reclaimed heart of pine vent hood, and farmhouse sink. There is plenty of room to gather, or to spread out, with 3 large bedrooms, a 4th room that is currently used as a bedroom but could just as easily serve as an office or play room/bonus room, generous formal living room with built-ins, sunny formal dining room, and a family room with French doors that open to the new rear deck. Even the foyer is a treat, a welcoming point of entry to this wonderful home. Owners have thoughtfully added storage space in many creative ways, from finishing & enlarging existing closets to the 'hidden' utility closet beside the downstairs bathroom. Laundry has new folding station and cabinetry with back-lighting. The back entry exudes functionality and charm; a mud room complete with custom bench, cubbies & shelving constructed from barn wood from an outbuilding on the property. This outbuilding itself has been carefully preserved but converted to a double bay storage area for yard tools, riding mower, etc. Additionally, a newly-built 3 bay carport with cypress columns graces the property, a modern replica of the home's architectural style. This carport has unfinished space on 2 levels, is equipped with power & water, and is spray foam insulated. The possibilities are endless for this space, which also includes an ample workshop with extra tall automatic garage door (great for boat storage). This property is fully fenced and boasts fresh landscaping, drip irrigation system, fruit trees, a garden, a fire pit, a decorative bridge, crush and run gravel driveway with gated entry, and a 3rd storage building with power & water. Enjoy the peaceful country setting with the convenience & charm of living in downtown Bishop, all in the award-winning Oconee County School System.
