Description: This elegant southern home has stood in the heart of Tupelo's historic Clayton Avenue district since 1930. It offers everything you would expect in a historic home, from its five fireplaces to the staircase that came from a mansion in Memphis. It all begins with a wide front porch, shaded on one side by a tall magnolia tree. The foyer serves as the central passageway for the entire downstairs. The original hardwood floors and millwork around each entrance are perfectly preserved, giving that authentic vintage feel to the home right away. The ceilings reach twelve feet in each room. To the right of the foyer is a library, now used as a living room, with built bookshelves and a chandelier. Opposite the library is the parlor, with a gorgeous chandelier, fireplace with mantel, and plenty of room. One of the home's most beautiful rooms is the dining room, connected to the parlor through a set of pocket doors. The dining room is large with yet another beautiful chandelier in addition to wainscoting along each wall. The kitchen has a butcher's block, ceramic tile floors, tile backsplash, and plenty of cabinet space. There is a breakfast nook just off the kitchen.
There are two bedroom downstairs, starting with the master bedroom. The master bedroom is a massive and luxurious room. It has exposed beams and a fireplace, as well as ample closet space. One of its best features is the small private sun porch, accessible only through the master bedroom. The second bedroom also has a fireplace. It is a very large bedroom with beautiful decor. The main downstairs bathroom is very deep, with a makeup area and separate bath and shower. There is also a powder room with toilet and sink.
The other three bedrooms are upstairs, along with another full bathroom. The journey upstairs is highlighted b the vintage staircase that makes three turns before the landing at a sitting room. Each of the three bedrooms upstairs is unique, with one having a separate reading nook.
Outside the property has a fenced in backyard and a large two-car garage. The backyard is a garden-style space with an area for a fish pond.There is a large room over the garage. Everything considered, this home is absolutely one of the most unique and special homes on the market. From its obvious historical value to its sheer size, this house would make a tremendous home. It would also be great as a professional space, bed and breakfast, or even as a retail boutique.
