What can you get for $7.45 million in Fairhope, Alabama? How about a historic family compound right on the water, just four driveways south of The Grand Hotel and The Julep Point of Mobile Bay!
Yes, this Fairhope beauty was originally built in the 1800s but is just as grand today. Let’s take a look around.
A Rare Opportunity In Fairhope
According to the listing, “This Southern gem with heart pine floors, eight-piece crown molding, and operational shutters is listed in the National Register of Historic Places.” It’s also registered in the Point Clear Historic District. And what a treasure it is!
Fully Furnished With A Guest House
The lushly landscaped grounds include a six-bedroom, 7,900-square-foot main house, plus a charming, two-bedroom guest house. Even better, the main house boasts a wrap-around front porch overlooking the beach. It is ideally situated on a brand new “Taj Ma Wharf” equipped with air-conditioning for taking in those epic Fairhope sunsets with ease.
Perhaps most enticing of all, is that it comes fully furnished. This includes period antiques and reproductions, custom rugs and draperies, and stunning fixtures and finishes.
All the work has been done for you, so you and the entire family can move right in. A rare find indeed! But that’s not all.
Tranquil Amenities In An Idyllic Fairhope Locale
When it’s time to connect with nature, the outdoor amenities abound! The listing suggests, “Set a crab trap and fish from your own wharf, or be in the Gulf of Mexico or Alabama Delta (America’s Amazon) in an hour.”
For boaters and golfers, you have everything you need right outside your door. We are talking not one, but two Robert Trent Jones Golf Courses at Lakewood Club and all of the waterfront adventure you could want.
We love the towering Live oaks, azaleas, and citrus trees that flank the gated drive, and the location doesn’t get much better. The home sits just minutes from the Fairhope Airport and only one hour to both the Mobile and Pensacola Airports.
A 19-Foot Seahunt Bay Cruiser Seals The Deal
