c.1922 Fixer Upper Craftsman in Historic District of Meridian, MS Under $30K
Located in Meridian’s Poplar Springs Road Historic District, this once beautiful home needs a savior. The district represents a large collection of residential homes built in the pre-Depression era testifying to the affluence of the area then.
The National Register of Historic Places describes the home as a two-story wood frame dwelling with a masonry basement. The east-facing house has a steep hipped roof with one stucco chimney and an extension half-hip to the south. The wood siding is narrower on the second floor than the first, and the entrance is off a small porch with Doric columns and gable roof. Windows on the second story are symmetrically placed. NRHP dates the Craftsman home as c.1922.
5/4 in Meridian’s Historical District, once used as a four-plex, but now is zoned only for single family home. First floor has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, living room, family room with original fireplace (non-working), and large laundry room. Second floor has 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, and sitting/dining room. Second floor has not been rewired or plumbed. Great for investor!
