Description

THE opportunity of a lifetime! Timeless, classic and comfortable family estate with +/- 104’ on the Boardwalk just 4 driveways south of The Grand Hotel and The Julep Point of Mobile Bay (aka The Bay of the Holy Spirit)! Originally constructed in the late 1800’s the home was added on and renovated to perfection in 2002. This Southern gem with heart pine floors, 8 piece crown moulding, and operational shutters is listed in the National Register of Historic Places as well as is registered in the Point Clear Historic District. The 6 bedroom (+/- 7,900 sq. Ft.) Main House with Master and balcony looking through the live oaks and the bay, enjoys a spacious and bright floorplan. Most gracious and welcoming as it flows to the showcase wrap around front porch overlooking the beach and on to the brand new “Taj Ma Wharf” with enclosed A/C for stellar sunsets beyond imagination. A place for everyone—Formal Living and Dining Rooms, Family Room, “His and Her” offices, up and downstairs laundry rooms, playroom and a great Rec Room over the garage with a full bath and kitchenette to beat the band! The jewel of a Guest House (approx 1,500 sq. ft.) is commodious and efficient with a full kitchen, breakfast area, living room with fireplace, two bedrooms and screened in porch. Live oaks, azaleas, and citrus trees flank the gated drive making for a most southern welcome. Just minutes from the Fairhope Airport and only 1 hr. to both the Mobile (West) and Pensacola (East) Airports. A “Staycation" in every way: 2 Robert Trent Jones Golf Courses at Lakewood Club just across Scenic 98 from the gated drive. 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. This one of a kind Point Clear Estate is offered fully furnished with period piece antiques and reproductions, custom rugs and draperies, fixtures and finishes and appointed with every amenity imaginable, including a 19’ Seahunt, Bay Cruiser. Turn key offered at $7.45 M Make it yours to enjoy — for now and for generations to come! You won’t be disappointed! Listing company makes no representation as to accuracy of square footage.

    "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!!"
