Whether you are looking for a place to build or buy, you could do far worse than Laurel, Mississippi. The charming town has won the hearts of households across America with its HGTV hit show Home Town, currently slated for its fifth season.
But that’s not all that puts Laurel on the map. The community is known for its gracious and diverse land holdings, like the off-market parcel pictured above on Varner Road, to affordable homes that simply need a little love.
If you’re up for it, we found two deals to be had in our latest Splurge vs. Steal. From a Craftsman Splurge to a 100-acre Land Grab Steal, we are loving the look of Laurel. See for yourself, then tell us which is more you in the comments.
Splurge: Laurel Craftsman With Perfect Porch And Cozy Interiors For $499,900
This Laurel splurge couldn’t be more darling! The cutie craftsman affords the perfect porch for fall with plenty of room for all your pumpkins and harvest décor. We love the deep blue exterior with copper metal roof. And the inside is just as pretty too!
The four-bedroom, three-full-one-half-bathroom beauty offers a gracious 3,400 square feet. Custom cabinetry and rich granite marks the gourmet kitchen. In the master, you’ll enjoy a steam shower with ample space to unwind. There’s even a bonus room on the upper level and a man cave-office on the lower level, adding to the flexible layout.
Outside, the wooded 0.62-acre lot is great for pets and kids, with a built-in gym and swing-set that stays with the home. Plus, you’ll have plenty of space on the covered back porch to ring in Autumn and watch the leaves change.
