Home Details

Have you ever dreamed of owning a piece of American history? Have you dreamed of owning a home on River Road overlooking the Mississippi River? Well here is your chance!! Extremely unique opportunity to purchase Home Place - originally built around 1773 for a Spanish Commandant - that has been lovingly restored and updated. Sitting on 2 acres is this plantation style beauty bursting with history and charm. Original antique cypress and brick flooring throughout, original chandeliers and all of the gorgeous wooden doors are original to the home. Although the home has been updated to today s standards with new electrical and plumbing, the walls of the home are still made of double Bousillage mud and moss. Three vented fireplaces are found in the house including one made of Italian marble from an 1840s plantation. Updated kitchen boasting travertine counters and backsplash and stainless appliances including a gas range. Walk in laundry room and pantry has been added for modern convenience. Downstairs is one guest bedroom and bathroom and upstairs are the remaining four bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master has an en suite bathroom with additional built in closet space and a jacuzzi tub. Walk out from your master suite to the balcony overlooking the crepe myrtle lined driveway, the two magnificent live oaks and of course the historic Mississippi river. On the grounds you will also find many fruit trees including fig, blood orange, muscadine, pear, persimmon and blackberry. The 3rd floor of the home is currently being used as storage but could be finished out to create additional living area. There is also a slab behind the house with plumbing and electrical where a workshop or guest suite could be added. Property would also make a fabulous Bed & Breakfast by adding the additional 3rd level. A large area on the first floor of the home used to be a garage but is currently being used as storage. History lovers take note - a home this special does not come around often!
