About Barry Burns
I was born and raised in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and graduated from the University of Alabama. After a few years in Birmingham, I returned to Tuscaloosa to practice accounting, raise a family with my wife Mary and enjoy all of what Tuscaloosa has to offer.
Barry Burns purchased this House in 2018
Why Barry Burns chose Northport
Most of my life I have visited and enjoyed Lake Tuscaloosa. In 2007 I purchase property on Lake Tuscaloosa and began a renting as a vacation home by listing on VRBO. This experience led me to building this luxury home designed to be the perfect gathering place on Lake Tuscaloosa.

Luxury on the Lake
We spent a 4 day weekend here with 6 adults and 3 toddlers-with 6 additional adults coming for the game and evening meals. This very new and very large house accomadated all 15 of us and could have held 10 more. There are 34 chairs in the Great Room. The Boat dock and patio were magnets and where we spent most of our non TV Bama time especially watching sunsets stars and sunrises. The back patio with 180 degree lake view must be 16 feet deep and filled with comfortable seating for 20. There was a great smoker grill on the patio which we used. There was a fire pit that also got used. Several bedrooms had lake views. The kitchen was perfect with two dishwashers. Master bedroom was palatial as was the bath. You will not be disappointed with this house. Oh, we rented a pontoon boat which fit nicely in the boat house and we just had a blast cruising the lake. Nowhere did we see a house as nice as this rental.
Now that sums up our goals in building and furnishing this Lakehouse. Shout outs to Diane Darden designer, Todd Vick builder and Helen Lovell decorator.
Perfect Family Getaway!
This house is perfect for a family trip to relax and enjoy the lake! House is beautiful, right on the lake and access for boat and jetski. Owner was great and responded to questions quickly. Enjoyed by all and we hope to be back again!
This is a really lovely home, great amenities, beautiful decor, very clean and well maintained, and very spacious. My husband and I went with our 5 college-aged kids plus a couple significant others - so much living space and bedrooms with private bathrooms made it such a great vacation. This home is nearly new and truly gorgeous!
There was some confusion about the dock which I had understood to be private - there was a large party staying in the home adjacent to the property that used it during the time our stays overlapped and they felt the dock was for their use. Turned out not to be a big deal as we only overlapped for a short period but you may want to clarify that point if you are bringing a boat and plan on using the dock space.
Great lake house
We were extremely pleased with the house. It's the whole package only bad thing is no TV's in the bedrooms but other than that we hope to stay in the future!
Great house for large family!
We loved everything about this house!! It was very beautiful and had everything you would need for a lake trip. Barry was very easy to contact and always responded quickly to any request. I highly recommend this house and we will be staying here again!!
