Nestled in the historic tree-lined neighborhood of Evergreen Historic District, this Victorian charmer was built in 1918 around the time that Memphis reveled in its first centennial celebration. Evergreen is home to an eclectic mix of housing styles and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Its boundaries include Overton Park and the Greensward designed by George E. Kessler, Brooks Museum of Art and Levitt Shell where free concerts are held every summer.

Everywhere you look, there is something to love.
 
 
Memphis-3
 
Just imagine the click of your heels against the beautiful hardwood floors as you foxtrot across the room. Or maybe, a long soak in the claw foot tub with Prohibition jazz playing in the background is more your speed? And there is something just “Romeo and Juliet-esque” about curved staircase landings.

Elizabeth1AUTHOR ASIYAH KURTZ
As a native Memphian and prodigal daughter who recently moved back after ten years, Asiyah has always been fascinated with old houses. During her childhood, Asiyah’s family often drove through the historic Central Gardens district to “ooh” and “ahh” at the Christmas decorations. On those drives, she remembers drawing a peephole in their Ford Pinto’s window condensation to see the holiday lights little better. Thus began her love of front porches, oak trees and two story homes. She swore then that she would live in one of those houses one day.
 
Asiyah holds a bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and is currently pursuing a graduate degree in City and Regional Planning with a focus on historic preservation and re-use. True to her word, she and her family now live in a 111-year-old Dutch Colonial in Central Gardens.
