    The glazed gables on the two porches are a nice detail that I don’t think I’ve seen before. There’s a lot to work with in this home.

  3. If I had the money…oh my what a grand old home…I have to toss in an aside..nobody came home from the Civil War in 1858….it hadn’t started for another three years…nonetheless…a magnificent piece of architecture..hope someone with a fondness for American history restores it.

    How did he return home from the Civil War in 1858 When it didn’t start until 1861?

  5. I love the entryway of this house. Does look like some water damage throughout the place so may need a new roof first thing. I don’t like the idea of another house being attached to this one. I do love the size of the huge rooms!

      The house next door is not attached. These two houses were originally on the same property as the main house. The main has already been sold.

      They aren’t attached – if you look at the aerial view, it seems to show that they are on opposite sides of a circular driveway…

    I have seen and been inside of both of these homes (it has been many years). They have an annual home tour in Holly Springs, MS which is fantastic! This very interesting small town is @ 30-45 minutes south of Memphis, TN. Very surprised at the low prices, but that seems to be the trend for older homes in and around Memphis that are not true mansions or in an elite area.

    Featherston is one of three guest houses for the Walter Place estate. This home, Polk Place (for sale next door) and Dunvegan (featured on this site last year) are antebellum homes that were heavily modified by the Johnson family circa 1906. The Johnsons, who were descendants of the Walters, lived in St. Louis and considered the Holly Springs compound an entertainment retreat. Guests would arrive by train, and would be brought in carriages across town to the estate through the gates shown here. Since the 3 homes were for guests, each was raised to provide an English basment with a large dining hall. That is the white room shown here.

    Walter, Polk, and Featherston were extensively renovated in about 2002. Walter was bought last year, and is being restored again, including the 12 acre gardens which back up to this house. Overall this is a truly unique collection of properties with a great history
