Surround yourself with historic beauty in a 1939 home designed by renown southern architect A. Hayes Town in one of only 8 homes of his design built in Jackson. Town also oversaw the renovations and updates in 1997 for the home's second and current owner adding the family room and a second laundry. Over 7000 s/f, the main house is an entertainer's paradise with banquet sized formal dining room, formal living room, large family room, large kitchen with commercial appliances, screened porch and patio, butler's pantry/second kitchen, wine cooler and wet bar. Although the home has hosted many large gatherings, it has been designed to include many smaller and more private nooks to enjoy a little solitude with a good book or personal conversation with a friend. One will appreciate the artistry of the home, from the hand-stained flooring in the formal entry way to the hand painted cabinetry and beautiful window treatments. The home reflects Town's interest in salvaging old building materials such as the outdoor wrought iron fence, the old Indianola brick and the marble mantlepiece in the dining room, incorporating these elements into his designs and giving the home a comfortable, yet elegant, feel. Although the home has all the modern amenities, many of the original architectural features remain. The home boasts an office/library/study with cozy fireplace, an art studio, a large and comfortable master bedroom with marble floored master bath, and a large basement for storage. Three of the four upstairs bedrooms have their own baths. The property also features a 1000+ s/f carriage house perfect for guests. The home of your dreams is available in Fondren. This spectacular home and exquisite piece of history must be seen to be believed, so contact your favorite realtor today!
