1734 Sheffield Drive in Jackson is READY for a Real Estate Nerd moment! Today (the most beautiful day of 2014 in Jackson, MS) I am happily blogging away in between visits from potential home buyers at an open house! I've mentioned in previous posts that I often dream about renovating homes in my dreams. This house is a renovators DREAM!! Not only is it a great house, but it is close to JA (Jackson Academy), major arteries, but it also sits on sought after Sheffield Drive. You've heard people talk about houses with "good bones".... I find that a little creepy! This house has awesome space just waiting to be. The living/family room has a great wood-burning fireplace (that currently has a gas log insert in it) in a functional location for the renovation in my head. This room is flanked on the right by what might have previously been an outdoor space that has been captured and included in the current HVAC. This space has a pitched ceiling, 2 high windows and french doors to the drive. The back wall of the living room and the sun room back to the kitchen. IF I lived here, I'd take down the wall to the kitchen and put in an island or 2! This would give me a wonderful open space with room for a "farm" table and chairs (in the sun room space) and wonderful living space.
On the the main floor there is also a dining room, formal den, atrium, spa room, bath and large master bedroom. The master bedroom is a wonderful size with 2 great windows on each side wall. I'd leave this room space, as it is! I would refresh the bath and capture the current dining room for a "TO DIE FOR" master closet! That leaves me with a den space - that would be a great office OR a formal dining room. A spa room that is separate from the rest of the downstairs- that currently has a "beachy" theme and a hot tub. I would "adios" the spa and create a fabulous craft room, man cave, music/recording room or media room! I would leave the atrium space as it is and use the lovely attached and private courtyard as a MEAN outdoor kitchen!
Upstairs this house has 3 great bedrooms and 2 baths! The bedrooms are NOT the typical little spaces that barely hold a twin bed! Two bedrooms share a hall bath and one is (in HGTV style) is en suite and boasts dual sinks! Everything upstairs could be left as is - or with a little touch of current those baths could be WOW!
