You know good things are in store when you enter the gates at 6231 FM 317 in Athens, where you can take in the natural beauty of East Texas on this nearly 19-acre property with graceful rolling terrain, native hardwoods, and an effervescent spring-fed pond.
Steve Grant Real Estate has listed this 1999-built three-bedroom, three and half-bath home with 2,880 square feet — on a whopping 18.95 acres for $699,500.
Whether you’re in the great room with a pair of French doors, the brick-walled den with built-in wine cooler, or the expansive eat-in kitchen, the treehouse views of lush foliage and the pond steal the show.
The kitchen features a center cook island, custom cabinetry, ceramic tile floors, and stainless Kitchen Aide appliances. Or take your cooking outside onto the tiered wood deck with shaded outdoor kitchen that includes a Green Egg smoker, sink, refrigerator, and gas fire pit.
The first-floor master suite has beautiful natural light and wood floors that really give a sense of how easy this home is to live in. A pair of French doors open onto the tree-shaded wood deck and look onto the woodsy acreage.
