Homes, Single Family house description

NOT A DUPLEX! Nostalgic Gulf Shores charm awaits you at GREEN HERON HOUSE - and your pet is welcome, too! Situated on a quiet, dead-end street surrounded by native oaks, palmetto, water & wildlife - this open and spacious 2 bedroom, 1 bath home features painted pine floors throughout and a large living room, den, sunlit kitchen, separate dining area and deck. Windows everywhere enhance your enjoyment of the surrounding oaks and wildlife with a sense of being in a tree house!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: Owner kayak fishing in Little Lagoon. This photo was taken on Thanksgiving Day while fishing with my husband and brothers. It was the biggest speckled trout I've ever caught - and I released her back into the lagoon as soon as the photo was taken.

              Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
              Our family has owned property next door for 15 years and we love the casual, relaxed atmosphere here. The property is surrounded by old growth, sand live oak and when our neighbors decided to sell we were concerned the trees would be cut down to further develop the property. So, we did the only thing we could - we bought it! It's an isolated bit of 'old Gulf Shores' that's close to everything and we love it here!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Facing south to the gulf, the house is fronted by Stanton Creek which connects to other canals leading to Little Lagoon. The creek is a natural wetland, excellent for bird-watching and we love to canoe and kayak in the lagoon, which is a great place to fish or just watch the sunset. We're just a 5-minute walk to the public beach and 'The Hangout' in Gulf Shores, which makes this a great spot for the annual Shrimp Festival and we have a private balcony for the 4th of July Fireworks.
