This Prized Antebellum Mansion (And All Its Treasures!) Just Hit the Market in Mississippi
It’s not an exaggeration when we say that houses like the Waverley Mansion don’t come around too often. This stunning example of Southern antebellum architecture is one of only 40 National Historic Landmarks in Mississippi. And now it, along with every piece of its contents, can be yours.
This sprawling 8,000-square-foot home has stood proudly in the town of West Point since 1852. Large porticos, a jaw-dropping, four-story double curved staircase, an eye-catching octagonal cupola and a 250-year-old magnolia are just a few of the property’s stand-out features.
Starkville Properties listing agent Natalie Morgan told Southern Living that the mansion was purchased and restored by an antiques dealer in 1962. He spent the next few decades filling it with antiques that fit the home’s original period. Unfortunately, the owner recently passed away, leaving crumbling Waverley Mansion and its treasures to his four children, who decided to offer it all up— 1860's Steinway piano included—for just $1,200,000.
