This move-in ready masterpiece is known as the Mayor’s Mansion on Main. Built in 1886, the home was owned by Mayor Richard Spier Edwards Jr. ( 1936-2020) and his wife, Mary Ann Brett Edwards.
Mr. Edwards was a lifelong resident of Boykins, Virginia. He was an Eagle Scout, the former owner of Edwards Spreader Body Co., and former Boykins mayor. According to The Tidewater News:
When asked how would you like to be remembered, Spier stated, “As one who helped Boykins become a better community in which to live and work.” He had a love for the town of Boykins that was shown through his dedication and hard work. Three words people used to describe him were aggressive, dedicated and trustworthy.
This stunner sits on a corner lot and is a showpiece in the small town of Boykins (pop. 526). Personally, I’m not a fan of knotty pine panelling, but most of the rooms are bright and cheerful. For $100K, this is a beautiful, meticulously-maintained, move-in ready home.
They certainly do not make them like this anymore!! Welcome home to the move-in ready Mayors Mansion on Main! Built in 1886 and beautifully preserved and updated to provide all the southern charm from the 19th century with the convenience and upgrades of 2020 including central air.
