Property description

Beautiful Garden Home custom built by owner. Double front concrete drive with parking pad for two cars in front. Huge master bedroom (tray ceiling) with its own large 'Hollywood' bath with double sinks and plenty of space. Second bedroom has full bed that sleeps 2 and has a hall full bath. Sofa in den could possibly sleep the fifth person if you wish. I will also leave one queen sleeper mattress with pump upon request.
Nice décor, ceiling fans, beautiful wrought iron and crystal light fixtures, very up to date décor. Fully stocked kitchen. Fenced in small backyard with patio set and grill. Neighborhood has walking track, lake, tennis, picnic pavillion, small swimming pool. SO convenient- 4 miles to UA, 1 mile to Walmart, Big Lots, Post office, about 5 quick service drive through places that are not all large chains within a mile, half mile to 2 miles to Hobby Lobby, Publix and about 20 restaurants. Suburbia value in very safe and convenient area!

Den has TV with DirectTV and wireless internet (bring own computer), and gas fireplace for easy use. Kitchen has small table for two and bar with three bar stools in the same area. New appliances - dishwasher, smooth cooktop, microwave, disposal, fully stocked with dishes, gadgets, small appliances, pots and pans. Backyard is small fenced enclosed courtyard, great for an outdoor barbeque. Unit is on a corner providing extra space for parked cars. Newly redecorated and not suitable for pets or children please.

Rent to 25 and older only please. Partiers not welcomed, this is a NICE AND SAFE family neighborhood far enough away from university to provide calm and security. Great accommodations for hard to find University of Alabama football game lodging or other sporting events at the Capstone, or other academic events. Sometimes hotels are hard to find..best of both worlds here.



Visit for any of our wonderful events: University of Alabama football games, University of Alabama sporting events, KENTUCK nationally ranked folk and contemporary art festival in northport, Tuscaloosa Symphony and visiting renowned musicans at Moody Music UA campus, Heritage Week each spring, Artrageous riverfront art tour 1st Thursday each month in Tuscaloosa and Northport art district, Tannehill trade days and specialized festivals, Summer camps such as Nick Saban Camp, Gymnastics camp, or Pat Murphy softball camp, Dance Alabama!, Local musueums including Natural History Museum at Smith Hall UA campus, Childrens Hands On Museum (CHOM) downtown Tuscaloosa, Gorgas Home and historic Tuscaloosa homes, Westervelt Warner Art Museums (famous American art and impressionist works including world famous masterpieces). Public golf - 18 hole Old Colony Golf course ranked by GOLF DIGEST as top 10 new public courses in 2001. Plus MANY local festivals in Eutaw, Pickens County, Marengo and Hale counties. Check out the Tuscaloosa tourism website, lots to do and see.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We purchased this home when our children were in college. For the past ten years this has served as a vacation rental. But we have recently sold our big farm and farmhouse and have retired to this garden home. It is refurbished with all ecru furniture in den, new hardwood floors, new drapes and décor. We have a new RV and are excited about many weekends we would like to spend traveling. Therefore, we offer our garden home to you. You will not know we "live" there. It will be pristine and fully furnished just for you.

Why the Owner Chose Northport, AL, USA:
Harper Creek is SO convenient. The home has nice ammenties and is newer, was a great value for us at purchase. AND..we like passing the savings onto our renters. This is the nicest property for the money on vrbo in our opinion.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This is a VERY convenient location near intersection of Highway 82 and 43 in Northport. Just a skip away (1 mile) in Northport are antique shops, old time barber shop, world famous local meat and 3 CITY CAFE, and one of a kind places featured in Southern Living. On the four lane (just outside the entrance to Harper Creek) are all the handy places you know and love McDonalds, Publix grocery, Walmart, gas stations, family area a hop away. A jump away (about 4-5 miles) is the University of Alabama.
