This 1939 historic English Tudor style home situated on a gorgeous, tree filled corner lot was originally constructed in 1939 for the Snow (co-founder of the Butler Snow Law Firm) family. The Snow Tudor, as it is known, was constructed by C.S. Weir, who built many residential homes in the Fondren area. The home was often featured in local news and media of the day for its exterior and interior design. The magnificent living and dining rooms were the backdrop for many social gatherings of mid-century Jackson, Mississippi. After more than 80 years, the home has been lovingly renovated. It is now classically updated to modern standards while maintaining the character of the past. Being perfectly placed on one of the most beautiful streets in the Fondren area make it a perfect choice for a homeowner who desires the modern conveniences in a home but loves established neighborhoods and the feeling of community. The kitchen and baths have been completely updated with new custom cabinetry & hardware, solid surface counters, new flooring, lighting and appliances. However, many of the original, unique features of the home have been restored and remain such as the original hardwood flooring, the kitchen and powder room sinks, and the vent fan in the kitchen. All light fixtures have been replaced or restored, designer wallpaper added, and it has been painted with neutral White Dove throughout. The beautiful windows throughout the home provide breathtaking views of this amazing corner lot and allow plenty of natural light to fill each room. A detailed list of improvements made during the renovation as well as the story of the property are available. This architectural gem is move-in ready for its next chapter in history. Welcome to 862 Avondale Street - an incredible showplace to call home!
