Beach Front Mansion To Go On Auction Block

For 20 years, Jamie Buckley has shared happy memories with her family in her beach front mansion in Biloxi. But since her husband recently passed away, and her two kids are in college, Buckley says the five bedroom, four bathroom house has gotten too big.

It's a house filled with warmth, and more than 100 years of history.

"It was built at the turn of the century," Buckley said. It's a Greek revival mansion, and we've been told it was moved to the beach, because when this house was built, the beach road was non- existent."

The mansion survived the fury of Hurricane Camille. Over the years, renovations have turned the house into a place that mixes 19th century architecture with modern day conveniences.

"All the ceilings have been done," she said. "We've added crown molding. All the hardwood pine floors have been refinished by hand. We've had custom marble bathrooms, custom made cherry cabinets; it's just undergone an entire renovation."

Despite the recent renovations, the house still has a lot of original features. For instance, the leaded glass mahogany door that opens to a spectacular view.

"The views from the porches are just gorgeous, and sometimes I would sit on the porch at night, and the sunsets are spectacular."

Buckley hopes whoever moves in here will also enjoy the scenery and create their own, special memories.

She decided to put the mansion up for auction because she says it's a quick way to sell a house, and she hopes to get an equitable price for it. The house is at 1374 Beach Boulevard in Biloxi. The auction is on Saturday at 11 a.m.
