Fort Morgan/Gulf Shores, Al.
COMPLETELY PRIVATE two acre Fort Morgan, Al. estate on one of the most beautiful waterfront lots you'll ever experience on the Alabama Gulf Coast, including 200 year old oak trees covered in Spanish moss, your own private swimming pool, hot tub, open pier and screened in room over the water for watching the sunsets over the bay at Fort Morgan and our colony of pelicans who roost all day on nearby posts.

The warmth of this 3500 square foot Mediterranean style property is achieved with the use of Spanish tile, Douglas fir custom cabinets and trim, soaring bead board ceilings, sky lights, nine sets of wood and glass french doors, plastered faux finished walls, and Italian kitchen (complete with granite, custom tile and copper sink) and high end designer furnishings and antiques. All of this on ONE level. NO STAIRS TO CLIMB! A real rarity in the Fort Morgan, Gulf Shores area. And easy access to the beautiful grounds because of the large number of French doors through out the house.

The master bedroom features floor to ceiling custom built bookshelves loaded with great books to enjoy, premium king bed, TV, DVD, and VCR and six floor to ceiling windows to enjoy the INCREDIBLE view. Master bath features a huge garden tub and Italian Garden wall mural. There are three other indoor bedrooms and one carriage house complete with two queen beds, air conditioner, TV, VCR, and satellite. There are 2 bathrooms within the house and one additional 'rustic' bathroom located in separate building just off the courtyard making it convenient to the main house and carriage house. AND..WE JUST ADDED A HOT TUB! Hot Tub is available during Winter and Spring, Will Be Closed for Summer Season.

Enjoy the Fort Morgan sunsets from the 600 sq ft screened-in-porch which sits directly over the water- complete w living area, dining area, and bar. There's also a pier for swimming,fishing, crabbing and just sittin!

The coastal grounds are beautifully landscaped with a lush lawn and tropical plants.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Homes, Single Family:
We fell in love with Fort Morgan. Its seems like the last place left where condo development has not been allowed to take over. Driving down Fort Morgan, you get to experience lagoons and the Gulf of Mexico on the south side, and beautiful Mobile Bay on the Right. Some of the bay front homes have been owned by the same family for generations and the families have been able to retain their very large and private lots. We bought Wendy's Way 10 years ago. It was a simple fishing cottage on the most gorgeous lot, filled with 200 year old oak trees, coastal grasses and of course the bay.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Favorites while staying at Wendy's Way. Catching crabs and making my famous crab cakes. Playing cards with family on bay porch. Curling up on chaise lounger or hammock with good book and observing shrimp boats or large vessels in the distance. Watching the pelicans just 100 feet away who enjoy this place as much as I. The sunsets, the sunsets, the sunset. Diving into the swimming pool on a warm summer day. Walking the grounds to enjoy the vegetation and our magnificent trees! Cooking INCREDIBLE meals with our very large family in our VERY LARGE Mediterranean style kitchen. Curling up in front of our magnificent wood burning fireplace on a cool day. It has the best draw of any fireplace I've used and starting a fire is never a problem. Curling up in the comfy king bed in the master bedroom, trying to select which book to read next from the built in bookcases or staring out the 6 windows to the water beyond. Soaking in the HUGE garden tub in the master bath.
