What a fabulous find in Fondren. Over 3400 sq ft of style and elegance on a corner lot, just steps from all the fun of the Fondren Business District- shopping, dining, bowling, live music, etc. The quality of craftsmanship is evident in this spacious one story home, which has had only three owners in its 73 years. With a newly renovated kitchen and a brand new roof, the property is ready for new owners to continue its legacy. The foyer, with its arched openings and custom paint finish, gives a hint to the beauty beyond. The formal dining room boasts original chinoiserie wallpaper as well as wainscoting, while the formal living room offers a large fireplace, two pairs of original crystal sconces and large windows allowing plenty of natural light. High ceilings and beautiful wood floors are found throughout. The focal point of the expansive great room is a distinctive, imported soapstone mantle flanked by two large windows. The newly renovated kitchen features quartz countertops and new stainless steel appliances. There is also a breakfast room that overlooks the backyard. A sitting area off the kitchen could also be used as an office and features a powder room for guests, plus built-in storage. The spacious primary suite offers two closets and access to a back porch. Two additional bedrooms on the front of the home share a bath. Another noteworthy feature that makes this home so unique- a suite at the end of the hallway that can be closed off from the rest of the space when desired. While technically two bedrooms sharing a hall bath, the current owner uses this space as a bedroom and an office. With its own entrance from the back patio, the flexibility this space provides offers many opportunities- a dedicated guest suite with sitting room, an Airbnb, etc. The property also offers 4 garages, including a workshop area with built-ins off the last garage, as well as extensive shelving and storage opportunities. The fully-fenced backyard provides plenty of outdoor entertaining space, including a back porch that can be accessed from the primary bedroom as well as the guest suite. A beautiful oak tree with low hanging limbs provides shade as well as ambiance for an outdoor seating area on the front lawn of the expansive yard. This gracious home with plenty of history is now ready for new owners to write the next chapter. Call your realtor today.
