Here is your opportunity to own a piece of history. Located in beautiful Beauregard town, you will love this Creole Shotgun Cottage-Style home with Greek Revival elements. The presence of machine-cut nails used in framing indicates the original construction date in the late 1800s. The first record of the house appears on an insurance map from 1892. The home features original heart of pine flooring throughout. Lower window sashes were made from a demolished courthouse in Little Rock, AR, providing privacy while letting in lots of light. Original 1800s hand-turned, interior, cypress columns. Makers note is still pinned to the interior. Original beaded-board wainscoting in the dining area. Hand-made cypress exterior doors fabricated from old floor joist taken from the house. Original cypress 6x6 sills with treated, pine 6x6 augmentation. All new Electrical and Plumbing were installed during comprehensive restoration in 1998. HVAC and ductwork were replaced in 2020. Original 19th-century bathtubs (Master bath is extra-long). Stainless steel countertops in the kitchen, and reclaimed cypress in the bathroom. Original heart-pine ceiling joists exposed, some showing hand-milling marks. Builders signature left behind added sheetrock. Original, coal-burning fireplace (closed and non-functional, could be converted) with Virginia Blue Slate hearth added with walnut trim. A heavy-gauge tin roof was installed at the time of renovation, along with skylights. A brick courtyard made with bricks from a Civil War Era Birmingham munitions factory. The possible one-time home of a stonemason who worked on the state capital carved limestone blocks and pavers found in excavation to install a custom iron bridge across the canal at the back of the property. A substantial back lot with an existing concrete slab is suitable for development, workshop, outdoor kitchen, or guest structure. (Think, studio apartment for Airbnb). This is a must see property!
