Located on historical Second Street in Gulfport - an easy, short walk to the beautiful white sand beach, Jones park, downtown, great restaurants and the fishing pier. The neighborhood park is just about a block away, too. Casinos are only minutes away. New Orleans is an easy 1 hour drive.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1939

About: Scott & Lynn: Scott is native to south Louisiana and I grew up in north Mississippi. My grandparents bought this house in 1939 and raised their family here. I grew up spending Spring Breaks and Summer vacations here with my grandparents and have many fond memories of my time here.

Why Gulfport, MS, USA:
Gulfport is a very special place and is doing a great job of bouncing back from the damage of Hurricane Katrina. We enjoy walking along the seawall to Jones park and up and down Second Street (which is lined with beautiful, historical homes), sitting on the front porch enjoying the Gulf view and the nice breezes, and dining out at the fabulous local restaurants - some of which are only minutes away from the house. The beach and a nice neighborhood park are both easy walks from the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our Gulfport home was completely renovated and updated thanks to Hurricane Katrina. The kitchen was enlarged and is nice and roomy with plenty of cabinet space and new appliances. The second full bath and a large laundry room were also added. In the yard are several fruit trees and pecan trees. We hope that you will visit our home and create your own special memories here!
