Southern Shores is located near the west end of the Fort Morgan Peninsula which is well known for its history, natural trails and marine treasures. The site of Fort Morgan is 3 miles west of Southern Shores. 175 years old, the fort was the focus of the Battle of Mobile Bay, August 5, 1864, and was also an active garrison during the Spanish American War and World Wars I and II. Next to the fort is Mobile Bay Ferry landing, boat ramp and pier. Launch your boat or fish off the pier. Leave your car at the landing and ride the ferry (walk-ons are $5.00 round trip with children under 12 free) over to Dauphin Island where Fort Gaines and the Dauphin Island Estuarium are within short walking distance. The Fort Morgan peninsula also hosts the National Bon Secour Wildlife refuge with 7,000 acres of protected woodlands, wetlands and beach. Walk trails to the beach or Mobile Bay and see Alabama’s coastal wildlife and beautiful wetland scenes. There are ten bird watching sites on the Peninsula.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My family has grown up vacationing on the beautiful Gulf Coast. My husband and I had the opportunity to build our ideal beach house in 2005 for our large family and to share with friends. It is the nearest thing to heaven!
Why the Owner Chose Gulf Shores, AL, USA:
Heritage Shores is the perfect Southern neighborhood with large, gracious beach homes and a huge expanse of sugar white beach. The quietness and the the privacy are what drew us to this location. Our house has beautiful gulf and bay views, a short stroll to the beach, and overlooks the pool and tennis court.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Southern Shores is specifically designed and furnished for large families (or two or three families) to come together. Bedrooms are private, bathrooms are ensuite, living and dining areas are spacious and comfortable for big groups. The kitchen is wonderfully equipped for several cooks to work together while enjoying conversation at the island. Several large balconies encourage slipping away for long talks.
