Try to understand what this mid-century home is going through. Born in the ’50s, it lived through the era of paneling and popcorn ceilings, shag carpet and paisley wallpaper, and seemed to be stuck in a rut. So what does any house do as it approaches 60? It goes out and buys a brand new kitchen, gets outfitted with an all-new floordrobe and builds this HUGE deck on the back just to show all the neighbors he’s still got it. Pathetic, right?

Ladies and gentlemen, feast your eyes on 845 N. Jackson Drive.

Price: $225,000
Beds: 3
Baths: 2
Sq Ft: 1,500
Built: 1955
Exterior features: Large deck, amazing location
Interior features: Updated kitchen, open concept, sound system
Set up a showing: Call 479-601-5453.

Now, you can use this house’s past insecurities to your advantage and get into this great Mount Sequoyah neighborhood for just $225,000.

The home has three bedrooms and two full baths and has been recently redone from the floor up. The kitchen was totally updated a few years back with granite counters and stainless steel appliances and opens up to a dining area set off by a rustic wood-burning fireplace.

Light bamboo flooring, an open concept living area and lots of natural light make for a bright, breathable space. A custom built-in bar area was added in the living room, along with a whole-home sound system and a 600-square-foot deck, making the house an entertainer’s delight.

But if you get tired of moochers using you, your bar and your deck for entertainment, you are minutes away from the entertainment district. About a mile from Dickson Street and close to campus and Fayetteville’s amazing trail systems, the location is about as good as it gets.

If for some reason schools are more important to you than a good Dickson Street Bloody Mary, fret not because you get both. At less than a mile away, the kids can walk to Root Elementary, or for good parenting, you can make the two-minute drive.

Call Jay Downing at 479-601-5453 to set up a private showing, and while you’re there, how about some words of encouragement for the house. We like all of your updates, but we like what’s inside, too. You still got the goods, Steve!
