Located in Fondren, my place is 1 block from Jackson's best restaurants, art galleries, and shopping!

Very close to:
Belhaven University
Millsaps College
UMMC, St. Dominics, Baptist
Lakeland Drive

You’ll love my place because it's located 1 block from all of the fabulous restaurants, coffee shops, grocery stores, music venues, galleries, boutiques, interior designers , frozen yogurt and popsicle shops, wine bars, and watering holes that the Fondren Neighborhood has to offer

The space
This apartment is located in a charming old house in the Fondren Neighborhood. The house is divided into 2 separate units, the front (street-facing) unit belonging to a real estate brokerage. The two spaces are totally separate from each other with separate entrances, thermostats, security systems, etc. Very private. The office occupants are only there sporadically throughout the weekdays. You likely won't notice them as their entrance is on the complete opposite side of the house. The apartment features a fully fenced and secured patio/deck and yard area.

-The kitchen includes a full sized refrigerator and range, microwave, tea kettle for boiling water, pots and pans, coffee maker and coffee, a full set of dishes, glasses, mugs, stemware, and utensils, a blender, and a double bowl sink with disposal. There are lots of cabinets with plenty of storage space.

-We have a Roku TV that gets basically anything you could watch on cable tv (ESPN, Fox Sports, Bravo, TLC, etc.). We also have an antenna with the local channels (20 channels or so including ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS, etc.)

- There is a Little Free Library in the side yard of the house, so don't be alarmed if you see neighbors/kids stopping to swap out books (and by all means feel free to peruse the book selection out there)! Fun to view from the kitchen window! Kitchen also overlooks a pretty shaded green space.

Where you’ll be

Jackson, Mississippi, United States

According to my favorite Fondren resource "Find It In Fondren", "Fondren is Jackson’s crown jewel, reinventing itself – and the city – one person at a time. As the arts district of Jackson, Mississippi, Fondren is the hub of artistic expression through music and visual arts and boasts unique owner-operated boutiques and over two-dozen locally owned restaurants, bars, coffee shops and bakeries"

Hi! I'm Mary Amelia. I've decided to convert my former office space into a cozy apartment to host visiting family and friends, and am excited to share it with you, too! This area of Jackson has so much to offer and is the most convenient central location in town if you ask me! There is always something fun going on in our neighborhood! Monthly street festivals, art shows, concerts, wine tastings, marathons/5k races, and casual group bike rides to name a few... I'm a true Mississippian and have lived in Jackson for the better part of 20 years with a few temporary homes in other states along the way including New York, Florida, and South Carolina. My husband and I both work in real estate. We travel a lot, but when we're here in town you can find us eating good food and meeting up with friends at our favorite local spots. Thrilled for you to come explore my city and enjoy a taste of southern hospitality!
