About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Your vacation home in Fairhope will be a real treat. It is located on a large lot with lots of privacy. There is a restaurant and a sandwich shop/bakery within walking distance - a block or less. You are within 400' of Mobile Bay where you can enjoy the water, sand, sunshine and a beverage while you enjoy the incredible sunsets

The house is an open floor plan with four bedtooms and three baths.

The master suite is upstairs with a queen bed, private bath, 32' LCD HiDef TV and walkin closet.

Two additional bedromms upstairs share a full bath on the landing at the top of the stairs.

Downstairs is the fourth BR with a walkin closet and joining bath. This bedroom has a 32' LCD HiDef TV.

There is a full kitchen completely equipped for home cooking.

The great room has a wood burning firplace and a 40' HiDef LCD TV with CD player.

Across the street is a walking/cycling path to Fairhope or to the Grand Hotel and beyond. I know you will love the hospitality and and the casual lifestyle that will make your stay one of your most memorable vacations.

Keywords: The house is a classic local design, two stories, a high gabled roof and a front proch on the East side for an afternoon place to read and watch the grass grow.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Kathleen (aka Kate) and I are migrants from the St Louis area. We moved here permanently in '09 for the climate and the lifestyle of a smaller community. Fairhope has all of the advantages of a small town and many of the advantages of a metropolitan area. We love the ambiance, working in the garden, boating on the Bay, meeting new people and keeping up with friends.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location is THE thing. If you get lazy and don't want to cook, there is a restaurant and a sandwich shop/bakery within EASY walking distance but you still have the privacy of a suburban neighborhood.
