Homes, Single Family house description

'Busy Doin' Nothin' is located within a single family residential neighborhood- none of the crowded beaches, traffic, noise, etc. associated with some areas on the Gulf coast.

Restaurants and convenience stores located nearby. At last count, 13 golf courses in the area, Bon Secure National Wildlife Refuge, the Mobile Bay Ferry, Fort Morgan Historic Site, Alabama Birding Trail are all close by. For those that desire to 'shop 'til you drop', the Rivera Centre contains in excess of 100 factory outlet stores and is located in nearby Foley (approximately 10 miles north of Gulf Shores).

The world's most beautiful beach is located approximately 100 yards from your front door. The home has a wagon for your use in carrying necessary beach supplies, chairs, etc.- most of which are available at the home for your use. Because the home is located on the Fort Morgan Peninsula, Mobile Bay is directly north of the home, less than a 1/4 mile away, and offers fishing, crabbing, shrimping, etc. The home has crab traps available for your use-you will need to bring your own fishing equipment. A fishing pier is located on the Fort Morgan Historic Site and is available for your use at a nominal charge, and well as the public boat launch.

                      Location

                      Direct beach access, located approximately 100 yards from Gulf, beautiful views of Gulf of Mexico and Mobile Bay from front deck; Charter deep sea and inshore fishing located at Gulf Shores Marina approximately 1/2 mile from house; public boat launch and fishing pier at Ft. Morgan historic site approximately 2 miles from house

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: I'm a native Alabamian -- born and raised in Perry County, Alabama. I currently live in Tallassee, Alabama where our family was raised (son-Joey, and daughter- Beth). Joe enjoys spending time with his children (both married), our son-in-law, and daughter-in-law, and three grandchildren, our Church, and going to the ONLY beach- Ft. Morgan!

                      Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
                      Our first visit to the Fort Morgan area was in 1999 and we immediately fell in love with the area- it was all single family residences- much like Gulf Shores thirty years ago- prior to the condo invasion! We were lucky enough to find a 'cabin' for sale with four lots, and built Busy Doin' Nothin' in the the summer of 2004.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The beach is a short walk away- in fact- the street in front of the house dead ends onto the beach-the beautiful white sand is close by- the salt air and gently breezes are ever-present. We enjoy shrimping and fishing in Mobile Bay, and of course, deed sea fishing (the mouth of Mobile Bay is 1/2 mile west of the boat launch at the Fort)- since the boat launch at the Ft. Morgan historic site is a mile away from the house- doesn't take but a couple of minutes to be on the water.
