Description

Fabulous Opportunity to own a stunning historic home in the Oakleigh Garden District! Wonderful architectural details: Stately central entrance hall with grand staircase w/ coffered beamed ceilings and original wood pegged plank flooring. Home comes in at nearly 6000 Sqft. with an additional 1000 sqft of attic space, which is insulated, heated and cooled. Property was originally part of the Joshua Kennedy estate and contains many details on the interior of a previous Greek revival home. The home was designed by famed Mobile architect Rudolph Benz in 1888 for the family of Charles Fairchild Hopkins. The Hopkins family owned the property from 1875 to 1926. The home in more recent days was used as a bed and breakfast and most recently, as a profitable AirBNB. The property has been featured in many online publications for its charm and festive holiday decor. Enter the grand front hall with a 18'x18' parlor to the left, and the 18'x 20' formal dining to the right. The home contains 6 (perhaps 8) bedrooms, with one ensuite located on the first floor, 6.5 baths, a commercial kitchen and first floor paneled music/billard room, with wet bar, 6 decorative fireplaces, a wonderful front porch and even a balcony off the turreted front bedroom. All of this gives the home an exceptional historic feel. The home sits on a lot surrounded by Satsuma trees and Live Oaks. The lot is long and backs up to Conti street with parking for up to 30 cars; which has been very useful during Mardi Gras and city events. The home has a new roof, 2 newer HVAC systems, commercial tankless water heater. updated plumbing and electrical. Much of the siding was replaced and the exterior has been freshly painted. Don't miss the chance to have your children telling their friends they live in the castle on Government. All updates are per the seller. *** Listing agent makes no representation to accuracy of sqft. Any/all updates are per the seller(s). Buyer to verify.
