Stunning home on over 50 acres located adjacent to a National Wildlife Refuge. Originally constructed in 1906 and located on Monroe St. in downtown Yazoo City, the home was painstakingly relocated to its current picturesque site on Wolf Lake in 1998. Jackson architect, Sam Coker was hired to oversee the extensive restoration and to add living space with modern amenities without sacrificing the architectural integrity of the home. Charm and quality espoused by the Victorian-era characteristics remain open entrance with a turned staircase, transom windows, heart of pine flooring, and original leaded-glass windows & pocket doors. Modern conveniences abound, including insulated windows, geothermal heating/ cooling, a luxurious master suite, copious amounts of storage and a well equipped kitchen with custom cabinetry-all without sacrificing the home's unique southern charm. Original wide plank pine flooring was found beneath oak strip flooring during the relocation and was painstakingly refinished and in excellent condition. Woodwork throughout the house has been refinished and is in exceptional condition. Kitchen is a seamless addition to the original house featuring hardwood floors, custom cherry cabinets, granite counter tops, a built-in Sub Zero refrigerator, built-in microwave and convection oven, ceramic cook top and down draft venting, top of the line dishwasher, built-in double ovens and ice maker. Utility room includes a built-in, drop down ironing board, custom cabinets and ample storage. Parallel to the utility room is a butler's pantry with an original dry bar and new custom built wine storage cabinets. Dining room features crown molding original windows and the original chandelier. An adjoining parlor is centered upon a beautiful, original oak mantle. Formal living area adjoining the parlor and main entrance also features a fireplace with the original oak mantle. The downstairs master suite, also with the original fireplace, was modernized during the renovation to include a large split walk-in closet, dual lavatories, a walk-in shower, footed tub and antique toilet. Study was added off the kitchen that also includes a fireplace. The family room on the rear opens to a covered veranda with sweeping views of the pool area and Wolf Lake. Family room's fireplace brings the total to five in the home. Antique flooring matching the rest of the home was reclaimed and installed in the kitchen and family room. Geothermal heating/cooling system was installed during the renovation. Although substantially more expense initially as compared to standard HVAC systems, the operating cost is efficient and ecologically friendlier. 90 gallon water heater was also installed along with blown insulation in the exterior walls and batt insulation beneath the floors.
