Renovation Projects

Belhaven Residential values the historic character and charm of the neighborhood and its structures. That’s why we are on a mission to preserve properties that appear to have fallen into disrepair. We have bought several properties that others have concluded would cost too much to restore, yet we continue to invest the time and capital necessary to bring the property back to usefulness. We lean on the expertise of our architects, the Mississippi Department of Archives & History, and city officials in the permit office and Historic Preservation Commission to plan and execute projects. These transformations excite us, and we are very proud of the finished product.

The properties we restore have a strong foundation, modern electrical and plumbing, new insulation, new heating and cooling equipment, and new appliances. These properties maintain their original historic charm but meet modern efficiency and code requirements. In 2010, Belhaven Residential received an Award of Merit from the Jackson Historic Preservation Commission for 811 N Jefferson Street, the neighbor to The Oaks. We also received an Honorable Mention in 2013 for the restoration/reconstruction project at 920 Harding Street.

* A special thank you to Sam Lane with First Commercial Bank for his commitment to the improvement of Belhaven and his support of our vision.
