Property Description

Unique style of home not seen every day! The first US appearance of a shotgun home was in New Orleans in the mid 1800’s. The design quickly spread to southern states and was heavily produced through the 1920’s. Designed to be cooling efficient (before AC) these homes maximize living space by “stacking” one room behind the next. Elvis was born in a shotgun home and Robert Johnson died in one. In their heyday, these style homes were typically built by local factory owners to house their employees. Most shotgun style homes have not survived to present day making it uncommon to find one with the original layout of “stacked” rooms. This one features a covered front porch, beautiful hardwood floors, and vinyl windows and siding. Needs some TLC but is worth the sweat equity. Don’t miss your chance to own a style of home not seen every day! Home sold "as-is"
