This totally renovated townhome is available for immediate residency and nestled in a highly-desirable location right in the very heart of Raleigh! Within minutes you can find yourself at Lake Johnson park, local schools, greenways, universities, the Centennial Campus, the NC State Farmer's Market and so much more. The only thing better than the location is the home itself; the owner has spared no expense with a total renovation and it shows. This home must be seen to be believed as it boasts high-end features and the most modern finishes throughout. A covered front porch welcomes you into an interior full of natural light, neutral paint tones and gorgeous, luxury plank flooring throughout; not a stitch of carpet to be found. Upon entering, the foyer opens on your right to a stunning eat-in kitchen showcasing recessed LED lighting and timeless white, craftsman-style cabinetry accentuated by gorgeous quartz counters and a subway tile backsplash. A suite of sleek stainless steel appliances (including a smooth top oven and a French door refrigerator) is as attractive as it is functional. The kitchen continues to impress with a deep bowl undermount stainless steel sink, a pantry and oil rubbed bronze hardware. The kitchen also includes a perfectly-proportioned breakfast nook with a bay window. For more formal dining occassions, the kitchen opens to an adjacent dining room; also with a bay window and recessed LED lighting. This area seamlessly intertwines with a generously proportioned family room that includes a cozy fireplace as well as direct access to a private rear deck. 942 Athens Drive continues to impress upstairs! A flight of hardwood-clad stairs leads up to a centrally-located hallway that opens to all three bedrooms as well as an uber-convenient laundry center that includes a washer and dryer for resident's use. No more hauling laundry up and down the stairs! The primary suite is quite large and features double picture windows, recessed LED perimeter lighting, a massive walk-in closet with wooden shelving (not the annoying wire shelving that is so common) as well as a renovated bathroom with a tiled tub/shower, modern fixtures and an elevated vanity topped with a quartz counter and undermount sink. Not to be left out, bedrooms #2 and #3 are also generously proportioned and include double windows/recessed LED perimeter lighting, ample closet space and direct access to a full bathroom that includes tiled floors, an elevated vanity topped with a quartz counter/undermount sink and a custom-tiled shower with a frameless glass surround.
