Property description

This unique renovated 1924 home was built by the Governor of Alabama as his summer residence. This historic 3400 square foot home maintains many of the original features that give the house its character. Walk out the double living room doors onto the large 12x40-foot pecky cypress screened porch. Relax and listen to the surf roll in while enjoying the view.

All rooms are spacious and comfortably furnished. There are two living rooms on the first floor, one for watching TV and one for conversation/reading. Using the etched glass and teak doors you can close off the upstairs, making the house cozy enough for two or large enough for the whole family.

This protected property is surrounded by trees and a wildlife preserve rich in rare plants. Migrating birds and butterflies pass through the area. Shore birds and song birds make an interesting combination. With an acre of land and surrounding undeveloped lots, there is a true feeling of privacy that many beach homes lack. Make yourself at home, have a good time and relax are the rules of the house. This affordable house is a paradise for all.
