Description

Incredible opportunity to purchase a glorious Pt Clear Estate with 1 main residence and 1 cottage on 168 waterfront feet with high elevation on Mobile Bay. This property which is near the intersection of Highway 32 and Senic Hwy 98 is in a fabulous spot and is over 600 ft from the road to the bay. The main 3/3/1 home with hardwood floors has tons of charm. You enter a large center hall living room that is flanked by a wood-paneled study and by a bedroom on the other side. The master with a walk-in closet and the 3rd bedroom border living room on the opposite end. The large center hall living space flows into a fabulous glassed-in porch -- with gorgeous unobstructed views and egress out to Mobile Bay. A large dining room with a tall trayed ceiling overlooks the Bay and yard. The galley style kitchen and a half bath are just off the dining room. The garage apartment located behind the primary home has a wrap-around open L shaped porch with a kitchen and den downstairs and 2/1 upstairs. You will feel like you are living up in the trees from the upstairs of this property. The beauty of this idyllic setting continues outside to a wonderful tree shaded deck perfect for refreshments and relaxing by the Bay. The lot has Oaks and Magnolias and is perfectly beautiful! You will also appreciate the bulkhead along the property and the marvelous wharf has 3 boat lifts and space to enjoy all the Bay has to offer. What a special chance to own a property that could house your family and friends that only comes along once in a lifetime! Can be purchased as one piece - see MLS# 648417.

    "I have been here on Cottage drive for 1 year now and have to say it is by far the cleanest best kept neighborhood in Fairhope. The Neighbors are cordial and since the street dead ends traffic is light. The HOA fees are reasonable at 55 per month and that covers everything from lawn maintenance to watering to street lamps. A great place to live!!"
