Tucked away on a hill and nestled in the New Bethel community awaits your future. In 2004 New Bethel Baptist Church decided to upgrade their worship center and in doing so sold the historic building to an aspiring young couple who moved the building to its current location overlooking 5+ acres just up the road a piece. They transformed this beautiful church into their home. The Neshoba Magazine did an article on the couple, their business, and this home in the summer of 2014. When you walk up to the home the exterior captures your attention visually; however, when you walk inside the home it captures your soul. The visual appearance of the 11' tongue and groove heart pine on the walls and ceiling takes your breath away. The wood floor is solid enough to drive a truck across yet makes that popping when you walk that only true plank wood floor can offer. Everything was designed from the heart and with taste: claw foot tub, pedestal sinks, and slate tile on the walls of the bathroom, a built in pantry, custom cabinets, counter tops, closets, cedar trim, the list goes on and on. All of these amenities are great but pale in comparison to the "feel" of the house. If you are spiritual in nature and you walk inside this home, you will be moved. Outside you will find a well built deck made of 2x6 lumber wrapping around one side of the home and taking you to a view of the custom built herb garden behind the house. This home is not currently laid out for everyone since it is a 2 bedroom with one bath, that being said, with the height of the walls and having a conventional foundation additions would not only be inexpensive but simple as well. If you are in search of something truly unique I encourage you to schedule a showing, you will not be disappointed. On a side note, the Neshoba County Fair grounds are only 5 miles away from this location. With the size and open floor plan this home would provide good access to this highly attended event.
