A Timeless Southern Colonial Beckons in the Heart of Memphis


Characterized by their symmetry, rectangular shapes, and sash windows, colonial-style homes have come to define many of America's oldest and most established regions. In the South, colonial architecture takes on a distinct character with Greek-inspired columns, white siding, and a balanced facade, with windows and doors flanking a central entrance. This sprawling 3.25-acre, 1929-era Memphis estate bears all of the classic hallmarks Southern colonial architecture – along with some modern-day accoutrements needed for luxurious living.  

Recently listed by Laura Clark and William Maury of Coldwell Banker Collins-Maury for $4.5 million, the property offers a truly private world set behind a secure gated entrance. The estate itself is first introduced by a vast motor court and meticulously landscaped grounds, hinting at the hidden wonders within. The main residence, a captivating example of Southern colonial revival style, exudes a sense of timeless elegance. Sun-kissed interiors seamlessly blend formal and informal living spaces.


Finely crafted historic details imbue the interiors with a sense of grandeur – and a polite nod to Southern hospitality.


With a total of 15 rooms, including six bedrooms and four full baths, the estate offers the perfect stage for both grand entertaining and intimate gatherings. But the true magic of this estate unfolds beyond the main house with a studio apartment, a separate workout room with shower and sauna, a 2-bedroom guest house, pool house with game room, fireplace, full bath and grilling porch. This arrangement, according to Clark and Maury, "offers versatility for hosting guests or enjoying recreational activities without leaving the grounds."



Calling it a "serene retreat," they say the private estate is a testament to a life lived richly, where every detail has been considered for ultimate comfort and indulgence. Whether you seek an escape from the city or a luxurious stage for socializing with friends and family, this property offers a endless possibility – all within the heart of Memphis.
