              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: Kathleen (aka Kate) and I are migrants from the St Louis area. We moved here permanently in '09 for the climate and the lifestyle of a smaller community. Fairhope has all of the advantages of a small town and many of the advantages of a metropolitan area. We love the ambiance, working in the garden, boating on the Bay, meeting new people and keeping up with friends.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The location is THE thing. If you get lazy and don't want to cook, there is a restaurant and a sandwich shop/bakery within EASY walking distance but you still have the privacy of a suburban neighborhood.
