Did you know that prior to the Civil War, Natchez, Mississippi had the most millionaires of any city in the United States? Today, Natchez boasts that it has more antebellum homes than any other city in the U.S., as it was spared the destruction of many other Southern cities during the Civil War (source). Today we will tour one of these spectacular antebellum gems… a glorious Greek Revival built in 1834. Known as Ravenna, it is one of the most architecturally significant early Greek Revival mansions of Natchez.
Featuring 8,000 square feet of living space on three acres, Ravenna recently received an award-winning renovation and features every amenity complete with designer details. There are beautiful porches for entertaining and sipping mint juleps, 12 foot ceilings, seven large bedrooms and six bathrooms. Architectural details include original hardwood floors and hand carved medallions and mantels, chef’s kitchen, Carrera marble baths, separate pool house and garage. It has been completely rewired and replumbed…. and it has been designed to perfection!
Perfection, yes? And I cannot believe the price… I don’t see how $899K would even cover this level of renovations to a home this size and age?! What a fabulous opportunity to own a piece of Natchez History. To see the listing, please click here, and here to read more about Ravenna.
I love how high the ceilings are and that staircase???!!!? Such a beautiful house
What a jewel! Of course, homes in the south are notoriously underpriced- this one must have belonged to a designer- the level of detail is amazing- but what a beauty! Would love to visit Natchez, as have not done so yet.
What an absolutely stunning home. I'll take it 🙂
