Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: Two Kids from the South who went to see the world - and lovingly landed back right where they always knew they would the Heart of Dixie ! Michael is a Louisiana boy and Terry Sue is a Mississippi girl who met while living in Southern California. Fate would bring them back to their True Southern Roots right here on the Eastern Shore !

Why the Owner Chose Fairhope:
We call it divine intervention. We bought the property sight unseen over the cell phone !! And then thought..WHAT are we going to do now???After one visit and meeting the original owners -the house came alive and magical for us - it was truly meant to be ! From the moment you drive down the meandering driveway not knowing what is in store for you the house captures your heart. We hope that it transports you and your loved ones to a place like no other ! Come enjoy !

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
Every room in the home has big beautiful sliding glass doors and tons of windows that make you feel as if you are one with nature just outside. Mature trees make this park-like setting truly one of a kind. Relax on the huge deck or sit in the gazebo down by the pond. Wherever your imagination takes you....It's all yours.
