In a city on the Mississippi River known for having over a hundred grand antebellum mansions, it is amazing to find an authentic and beautifully restored carriage house. The home that stood on the corner of this residential street is long gone but the family name lives on . . . the Beekmans.
The carriage house has a different floorplan from its days of service and now has a huge open living, dining, and kitchen area on the ground floor which is the heart of the house. On the front corner there is a cozy get-a-way library and in the back corner a service/side entrance and bath.
The second floor has three handsome bedrooms and two baths. Two bedrooms share a bath . . . the master bath is en-suite. The library has a Murphy Bed so the house comfortably sleeps eight.
But the icing, so to speak, is the roof deck. Upriver you look right on to Stanton Hall, the grand-daddy of Natchez mansions and home of the Pilgrimage Garden Club, and downriver you are two blocks from main street. The river itself is three blocks away.
It’s charming and compact with reminders of its past and as comfortable as anything in the present.
