This lovely home, originally built in 1948, was enlarged and completely renovated in 1972. Built as a personal residence by real estate developer J. Army Brown, the house has remained in the family and never offered for sale before now. It is enhanced with the finest moldings and detail finishes, from extensive built-in cabinetry to intricate millwork and ceiling plasters. There are ample walk-in closets and storage. This exceptional home features a lovely pool, formal garden & courtyard, 3-car garage, custom draperies, 10 beautiful chandeliers, 2 fireplaces with custom mantles....quality workmanship throughout ! Excellent for entertaining, the home has 2 wet bars, a great room flow, and French doors opening to the garden & fountain courtyard. The sweeping front yard beautifully frames the classic architecture. The exterior has been refreshed with new paint, a blue front door with elegant brass hardware, custom pediment, and shutters. The outdoor areas give additional living space with low maintenance due to the massive hardscape and evergreen plantings. Located at the corner of Hawthorn and Avondale in Hawthorn Hills, one of Jackson's most established traditional neighborhoods, this home is only blocks from the shops and restaurants of the popular Fondren Renaissance area. Formal, yet comfortable in every way, this iconic custom built home is ready for its next owner !
