Info: The term "garden home" has come to mean a variety of things in today's housing market. Typically, it means a small home on a small lot that offers a tiny plot of space for the homeowner to grow flowers or vegetables. Sometimes that "garden home" is actually dominated by a large concrete driveway and a neighbor's house that is just too close for comfort. Not so with this "garden home". This one is exactly what its name suggests: a very nice home with a very nice garden and room to grow. Tucked beneath the tall trees in East Tupelo, this beautiful home makes a great private escape for someone who doesn't need a whole lot of house but still likes to get his or her hands dirty. There is greenery surrounding every side and as the pictures show, plenty of spots to plant whatever you can dream up. The entrance of the home is surrounded by a gorgeous courtyard reminiscent of an English garden. The neighborhood is home to several species of birds and serves as a great place for birdwatching. It's also just a short stroll to Veterans Park and Elvis Presley's birthplace.
The interior of the home is incredibly surprising. It begins with a large but cozy living room with a gas fireplace. Stepping from the garden outside to the living room inside feels like you are entering an old cottage resting somewhere in Old England. Just beyond the living room is a sunken sun room, a little slice of privacy to read a book or catch an afternoon nap. The dining area is adjacent to the living room and provides enough room for a group of people to share dinner. The kitchen has a galley layout. Everything is in great condition and there is a considerable amount of cabinet space. The two bedrooms are located at the end of the hall. The master bedroom is the larger of the two bedrooms, with enough room for a large bed and a chair for sitting and reading. The other bedroom is somewhat smaller than the master, but it is still large enough for a queen size bed to fit easily. There is one bathroom in this home, located on the halllway. It is in great shape just lke the rest of the house. As a matter of fact, the roof, air conditioner, and deck have all been replaced within the past 4 years.
The backside of the home has a very large deck area overlooking with a serene and natural view of the forest behind. The forest actually wraps itself around the back edge of the property, further enhancing the home's charm. Given the home's garden courtyard entrance, cottage like charm inside, and natural setting in the back - you really can feel like you are living somewhere different than the eastern edge of Tupelo. But that just brings us to our final point about this home's value. Even though it feels like a world away, it's actually a very short drive to just about anything you might need. It's location is great. So if you are in the market for a beautiful cottage like home on a peaceful piece of land, then take a look at this home. You just might find yourself falling in love with it.
