Fairhope cottage description

Recently renovated by a local green architect, this historic cottage is clean, bright and comfortable.

Enjoy the convenience of being in the “center of the action” for Arts and Crafts Festivals, Coastal BirdFest, Mardis Gras, or First Friday Art Walks and the serenity afforded by being one block removed from downtown on a quiet street with no through traffic.

A porch swing under a large live oak, screened porch, and grilling area welcome visitors to enjoy outdoor living in the mild coastal climate.
