Year Purchased: 2006
About: We were born and raised in New Orleans and moved to Ocean Springs where we have spent most of our adult lives and raised our family. We spend our leisure time traveling between New Orleans and Fairhope where we visit family and enjoy the attraction of big city in one diretion and small quaint town in the other.
Why Fairhope: I guess you can say that Fairhope chose us and we are very fortunate for that. My family found Fairhope in 1981, fell in love with the town, and several family members moved here since that time. Over the years we visited family and enjoyed various activities in Fairhope and would like to permanently reside here when we retire.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Kensington is our family/vacation home that we ourselves enjoy visiting every chance we can. We take pride in maintaining our property to preserve it and the furnishings for our comfort as well as for our guests. When you come to Fairhope for an extended vacation at Kensington, you will feel like you are truly at 'home away from home.' We are confident that you will be so pleased with your stay in Kensington that you will want to return as often as you can get away from your own home town.
Just move in with your suitcase and enjoy the town and surrounding area.
