Homes for Sale Watkinsville
Watkinsville is a charmer of a town. Located less than 20 minutes south of Athens and only an hour and a half’s drive east of Atlanta, this seat of Oconee County is a serene, small-town community that’s steeped in traditional Southern hospitality and also has quite a few surprises up its sleeve. If you’re planning to invest in homes for sale in Watkinsville, then you probably know that this town of less than 3,000 is more than just a pretty postcard of a place, it’s also home to a growing arts community and a thriving arts and culture scene.
Just a little over three square miles in size, Watkinsville, like many of the other communities here in the Historic Heartland region of Georgia, is filled with many historic homes, buildings and landmarks. Among these are the Eagle Tavern, which has been here since 1801, and the 1897 Elder Mill Covered Bridge, among others. If you think you’d like to live in one of the town’s lovingly preserved historic homes for sale, Watkinsville has an array of real estate options for you to choose from.
Once a primarily agricultural community, the economy of Watkinsville today is powered by the arts and small businesses. Due to its close proximity to Athens, many citizens here also often head to the larger city for work, primarily in the venerable University of Georgia (UGA), which is the largest among all the other universities in the system.
