Holly Springs, MS

Historic Hilltop


***SELLER OFFERING $5,000 in BUYER CLOSING COST ASSISTANCE *and* a 1 YEAR HOME WARRANTY (with acceptable offer)!***

Welcome to HILLTOP, a wonderfully updated and charming historic home in downtown Holly Springs. Built in 1858, the home is nestled at the top of what was once a natural spring that gave the city its name and is now a paved walking park. Much energy and dedication has been put into preserving and maintaining the historic aspects of the property; the sellers have won multiple preservation awards for their work and this property has been featured in the NEW YORK TIMES.

You will appreciate the grandeur of the soaring 14 foot ceilings and impressive 11 foot doors downstairs. The sellers have made many updates and custom designs to this unique home; it's move-in ready for its next owners.

Through the double leaf front doors, you'll enter a formal foyer with a 1920s era chandelier. To the right, you'll find the formal living room and dining room, both with fireplaces (non-functioning). To the left of the foyer, you'll find the library and the primary bed and bath.

The library is one of the stand-out features of this home. Offering a custom-built chandelier, functioning gas fireplace, a custom, built-in bookcase that hides a TV sitting on a shelf on a lift (conveys with the home), and a library ladder to reach those high shelves, you can enjoy many afternoons or evenings cuddled up with a favorite novel surrounded by the peace and comfort of your own private collection.

You'll find the primary bath off the library and the primary bedroom through the next doorway. The bedroom offers a non-functioning fireplace as well as a Venetian-style glass chandelier.

Across the central hallway, you'll find a modern, eat-in kitchen with granite countertops, impressive custom-built cabinetry, GE appliances, and a coffee bar.

In the hallway, you'll find the half-bath for guests as well as the mudroom/laundry room for convenient, everyday entry to the home. The mudroom offers plenty of storage with more custom-built storage and hidden cat boxes.

Up the u-shaped flight of stairs, you'll find a spacious landing area, the second full bathroom, 2 large bedrooms, and a large storage room.

Outdoors, imagine watching the setting sun from your custom-tiled front porch, complete with a haint-blue ceiling and plenty of space to sit a spell with friends. The entire lot is fully fenced, with the lot being divided into 3 sections - the front, the immediate back, and further back behind the garages. There is a dog run between the two back yards, making it very convenient for your outdoor pets. Enjoy the fenced, raised garden beds, the firepit, and 2 2-car garages with power. There are mature pecan trees, a young maple tree, crepe myrtles and hedges along the back west fence, and ninebark shrubs on the west side of the newer garage.

The property also offers a 3 car carport - plenty of space for vehicles, toys, and storage! The sellers have done plenty of updates and upgrades, including recently painting the exterior on the south and west sides in April 2024 (the east and north sides were painted in fall 2023), painting the primary bedroom, reglazing windows, installing new landscaping and mulch, adding blown-in insulation approx. 10'' deep, and a new roof in 2021 (3 years old). All the bulbs in the house are LED and on dimmers. The 3 HVAC units are on digital thermostats with a schedule; the sellers say the utility bill is pretty reasonable. The custom trim work throughout much of the home is original, with embellishments added over time. The sellers kept all the panels and lace sheers that go with the silk window dressings; those will convey with the property.

Come out and see this impressive historic property for yourself. Call your favorite agent today to schedule a showing!
