In the Lake Oconee area you will find all kinds of homes: lake community homes, golf community homes, farm homes, and what our MLS calls “residential” homes located in the towns in the area. Some of the residential homes are considered in the historic category according to their age and style. Today I am featuring our new listing that is a charming Historic Cottage in the small Greene County town of Union Point. Union Point was named as it was the “union” of three railroads converging there from Atlanta, Athens, and Augusta. This little town is bursting with historic homes. There are many tales of events and people in this Southern town from the Civil War onward.
Built in 1910, this 3 bedroom 1 bath home shows its historic origin by its front parlor and dining room facing each other just inside the front door. The original dwelling has been enlarged to its present size. The large eat-in kitchen has been upgraded with modern conveniences, and the tin roof is just a few years old.
