Property description

“The Maltese Falcon” is on the north side of Ono Island on Bayou St. John. It is a beautiful, 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home that is elegantly furnished for both style and comfort. Take a virtual tour at http://tours.averadesign.com/57070?idx=1

As you walk up the stairway to the main floor, the 20 foot ceiling and custom draperies and matching upholstered furniture grabs your attention. The slate fireplace towers up toward the roof and ceiling fans cascade down to keep the room temperature perfect. The entire room is filled with sunlight from both the skylights and large windows.

Also on this floor is the kitchen, well equipped with a Fisher & Paykel cook top, down-draft vent, Kitchen Aide appliances, and Corian countertops. If some in your family doesn’t like what is playing on the 37” HD TV in the great room, there is a second TV in the den, complete with sleeper sofa, just off the kitchen. The laundry room, powder room and walk-in pantry are also on this floor.

One of two master bedrooms is located on this floor and has a separate entrance to the porch. And oh what a porch it is with protection from the elements, ceiling fans, rocking chairs and more room than you could imagine. It is perfect for snoozing, reading, or watching the sunset.

As you continue to the upper floor, the second bedroom and full bath are on your left and the second master bedroom, complete with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower await you. The fourth bedroom is next to the upper master bedroom. All the bedrooms have abundant storage and closet space.

The 250 foot pier and enormous boathouse were completed in March 2009. The boathouse has a boatlift, custom benches, and a center island and a hand painted sink, which is perfect for entertaining, napping in the hammock or waiting for the dolphins to swim past, as they have been known to do.

If you don’t find what you are looking for at “The Maltese Falcon” then it doesn’t exist. Come see for yourselves!

Whether your hobby is sunbathing, walking on the beach at sunset, sitting on the porch in a rocking chair reading the latest novel, you will find your niche in our house on Ono Island.

 

Owner info

About the owner: My husband and I purchased 'The Maltese Falcon' over twenty years ago and absolutely love not only the house, but Ono Island. It is a bit of Paradise, in south Alabama. We do not get to Ono Island as often as we have in years past, therefore, we decided to share our lovely home with other nice families who will enjoy it.
