207 East Oak Avenue - Como
3,234 Sq. Ft. - 3 BR 2BA - Over an Acre
Step back in time! Located in Downtown Como, this historic home is only a short walk to great dining & less than a mile from I55! Built in 1921, this amazing home was designed by the acclaimed Memphis architect, W.C. Lester, who developed plans for the Overton Park Apartments, the Gilmore Apartments, & countless private homes & properties in over a dozen states, & even one in Italy!
This beauty is full of incredible details with original quarter-sawn oak, beveled glass french doors, original fixtures & hardware, & gorgeous hardwood flooring throughout the home. The bedrooms, den, & dining rooms are all huge, & there are TWO spacious butler's pantries adjoining the dining room & kitchen. Upstairs you'll find an impressive walk-in attic with wooden walls & ceiling that could easily be transformed into a fourth bedroom. The oversized front porch is screened in, & the back side of the house has a lovely sunroom. Behind the house is an original tenant house that would make a great guest cottage, small rental, or office space! There's a large pole barn at the back of the property, & the fenced area would be great for a couple of horses, a few goats, or a chicken coop! The home also has a detached double garage that's been enclosed and finished to be used for an office, entertaining, or storage space, but can easily be converted back into a garage.
