c.1868 MS Fixer Upper on 1.8 Acres $42K ~ Off Market
May 23, 2020
4506 Royal Rd, Meridian, MS 39307 $42,000 ~ Off Market
Although there are nine historic districts in Meridian, Mississippi, this fixer upper is not located in any of them, so no worries about restrictions. It is, however, situated on a 1.8 acre city lot that runs from one street to the next.
You have to love the double front doors with stained glass transom. I thought it might be easy to trace the home’s history since the “C” in the glass gave a big clue. I was wrong. The earliest I could trace the home was the 1990s when C.W. Culpepper lived here with other Culpepper family members. I would like to think that the home was handed down through the Culpepper family.
In addition to the home, I think the brick outbuilding on the property might be a great project.
Historic fixer upper home with lots of Old Southern Charm. This 3/2 would make an excellent home for a family that is searching for a property with a large city lot and is a fixer upper’s dream. Property features original stained glass and includes late 19th Century craftsmanship that you will not find many places these days.
Fenced in yard for the pets and huge workshop in the back. Other features include original hardwood floors (some preserved under carpet), large cellar, large family room on the main floor, 2 gas log fireplaces, and (at the front door) a working 2 way speaking tube. If you are looking for a large older home with tons of potential to make your own look no further. Schedule a showing today!! Home sold ”As Is”.
