507 River Rd Greenwood, MS 38930

This girl needs some love! 
New kitchen, new paint inside and out and that photo of the roof makes me think maybe that needs to be updated.
Not a scary or overwhelming renovation & for the price it’s a perfect reno project!

507 River Rd Greenwood, MS 38930
Zestimate®: $205,040
5 beds 3 baths 5,177 sqft

Built in the early 1900s by Greenwood businessman and mayor, Stage Marye, this grand home was once one of the finest in the Delta, and could be once again. Its design was inspired by the many showboats that once sailed the waters of the Yazoo and mighty Mississippi. The interior features beautiful woodwork, ornate mantels, solid oak doors with egg and dart trim, and hardwood floors. A private, three room suite upstairs has casement windows that open up for a sweeping view of the Yazoo River. 
The house is described in the NRHP River Road and Western Downtown Residential Historic District info, which fails to convey the beauty of the place: 507 River Road – Neo-Classical Revival. Ca. 1910. One-and-a-half story frame residence with hipped roof and large central gabled dormer with Palladian window and dentiled cornice that is flanked by two small gabled dormers with Ionic pilasters and bas relief ornament in the gable ends; one-story porch surrounds the facade and side elevations and features an elliptical projection with arched and scrolled pediment defining the entrance doorway; the porch has a full dentiled entablature supported by Ionic columns linked by a turned baluster railing; elliptical curve of the central facade echoes the curve of the porch and contains a frontispiece entrance with double-leaf glazed doors set beneath a patterned transom. The Gillette House, built to resemble a showboat, was once one of the most beautiful homes in Greenwood, and can be again! Gorgeous molding, mantles, hardwood floors, solid wood doors enhanced with egg and dart molding. View of river from second floor.
