This beautifully restored century old home features 3728+ of hardwood floors and 12' ceilings in the Oakleigh Garden District, 5 minutes from downtown, I-10, and the new Airbus facility. I tried to lovingly restore this beautiful old home to last another 100 years. Everything is done except some inside finished work, turn on the utilities and get the certificate of occupancy from the city.
