There is a lot to do without even leaving the property. Relax on the large patio of this 1900 square foot waterfront home. Watch the sunset and grill out. Swing in the over sized hammock and take a nap. Watch the wildlife, which may include a Bald Eagle, Osprey or the endangered Whooping Crane. Great Blue Herons, Coots and Turtles are almost daily visitors. The turtles and ducks like to sun on the log in front of the house.
Field and Stream Magazine voted Guntersville one of the top 10 fishing towns in the country. It is well known for it's Bass fishing and National tournaments. Guests often catch fish right off the bank or pier. The kids will love catching Blue Gills, Catfish or Bream.

What's new? Almost everything!!! We added a 300 square feet master bedroom. the bathrooms were transformed into elegant, luxury bathrooms. New rock and an amazing mantle piece are the focal point of the living room; that is if you can tear yourself away from the fabulous view of Lake Guntersville. We have a beautiful new flagstone walkways. new landscaping, and larger driveway. We replaced the sliding glass doors in each bedroom that lead to the patio. We painted the living area paneling a light gray color, which brightened the space. We have painted the interior and much of the exterior. It was time to replace the boathouse. Now guests have their own slip with lift, chest freezer and fish cleaning station.

Year Purchased: 1958
About the owner: My parents, built this home in 1958. My father helped design the house with it's open living and dining area floor plan. I have kept some of the retro look by leaving some of the original fixtures, but it has also been completely updated the kitchen, laundry room, both bathrooms and added a 300 sqare foot master bedroom. I live just 3 miles away, also in Guntersville. My husband and I have lived here since 1990. He is the pastor of the First Presbyterian Church in Albertville. We are still keeping it in the family. My son Nicholas manages the property for me.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is a jewel of lake front property, because it is not steep and keeps deep water year round. It has shady and sunny area of this one acre property that provides privacy. It is in a cove. My favorite part about the house is the windows. In almost every room of the house you can look at the serene lake. The retro look has been blended with modern convenience. For example there are modern granite counter tops and antique dressers.
