About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)
Sit in the shade of ancient live oaks next to the sea wall. Moon rise is spectacular. (So is the sunrise if you're up that soon.) Still possible to encounter deer on a walk through the woods. Swimming good for children -- my father picked out the lot because of the shallow water and clean, sandy bottom.
One king bedroom, one double bedroom, one den with sleeper sofa, one daybed in center reading room, two day beds on enclosed sleeping porch. Two full bathrooms (one with shower and one with bath tub). Large kitchen with roomy eating facilities.
Keywords: Swim, watch an osprey catch a fish: Directly on wide waterfront with big trees, spacious house with ample space for parking, year round, in Josephine, on the Alabama side of Perdido Bay, laundry facilities, fishing reef out in front. Southwest from Pensacola about a 35 minute drive via Hwy 98, then south on 95. About an hour's drive from Mobile.
Minimum stay two nights. Cleaning fee $65.00. No pets. Bellingrath Gardens near Mobile and the Blue Angels in Pensacola are well known attractions. Separate cottage available on same lot. Listing is 351034.

This house was built in 1954 and expanded in 1975 by my Great Grandfather who was and engineer and supervised a large part of the building of the Hoover Dam. He selected this site because of the soft sand and the warm shallow water which is perfect for small children. In the photos section you can see my three daughters playing about 40 or 50 feet in front of the see wall, and they just over waist-deep at high tide. This is the perfect place for children....moreless

Year Purchased: 1956
About: Writer whose children learned to swim here, and enjoyed walking on the sands of Perdido Bay.
Why Elberta, AL, USA:
This house was built in 1954 and expanded in 1975 by my Father who was and engineer and supervised a large part of the building of the Hoover Dam. My brother-in-law commented, after seeing the house during construction; "your father is building that house like he is spending government money." He was referring to my father's engineer's attention to detail. My father selected this site because of the soft sand and the warm shallow water which is perfect for small children. In the photos section you can see my three great granddaughters playing about 40 or 50 feet in front of the see wall, and they just over waist-deep at high tide. This is the perfect place for children.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Seeing the ospreys and other wildlife, the sound of the waves throughout the house, the quiet, friendly neighborhood, water safe for children to learn to swim, uncrowded boating, fishing right there.
