                  The Fort Morgan region of Gulf Shores is a less-developed and uncrowded area. Fort Morgan Rd (Highway 180) extends westward from Highway 59 along a peninsula that separates the Gulf of Mexico to the south from Bon Secour/Mobile Bay to the north. The Bon Secour wilderness preserve is along this route. There are two golf courses off of Ft Morgan Rd: Peninsula and Kiva Dunes.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: My wife and I are Alabama natives and both grew up vacationing on the gulf coast - from the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay to Panama City Beach Florida. We love being in nature and the perspective it gives to life - the sounds of the breaking waves and coastal birds and the views of the striking white sand and Gulf water.

                  Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
                  We chose Enchanted Dunes because of the wonderful house directly overlooking the beach and the uncrowded, natural surroundings yet with plenty of amenities.
