About Bruce Coldsmith

Elise and I live in Mobile and enjoy the great opportunities on the water in this area. Elise is a Professor and Clinical Psycholigist at U of South Alabama. I have a financial planning business in Mobile. We have five kids spread from Denver to DC, with one still in the area. Elise enjoys karate, meditation and running, I love to swim, bike and run in this area. We both enjoy kayaking, boating, fishing and just hanging out, enjoying great sunsets. Our kids, and now grandkids, love to play on the beach and in the waves. We originally bought the property with Elise's parents, George and Martha, and we now have four generations enjoying this wonderful place. We've shared a great number of family events here including several of our kids 'baptism' to the water here, one son's wedding, and George's 80th birthday party with scores of family attending. Elise and I have also made a tradition of celebrating our aniverseries here.

Bruce Coldsmith purchased this house in 1989

Why Bruce Coldsmith chose Gulf Shores

Originally we looked for a place we could go with our family that would not be as crowded as the main beach areas. We fell in love with the Fort Morgan area and continue to enjoy the relative peace of this area. We appreciate the amenities (stores and restaraunts) that have built up in the last 10-15 years. One of the wonderful aspects of this area is that you can access the gulf from here, but also the Bay, by foot. Our boys often walked over to the bay to a point of land they named crab point, and spent much time on both bodies of water, depending on the season and time of day. Another important aspect is that Labacoco is close enough to be an easy drive from Mobile (or Pensacola) and yet is far enough away and secluded enough to be a getaway. We built the bigger building 2005-6 to accomodate a growing family.

What makes this house unique

The unique benefits of Labacoco include the beautiful white sand beach, and a sense of place and family that will make this a wonderful place not only to enjoy the beach, but more importantly to enjoy each other! The variety of activities both inside and out make it a great place to vacation and get away, but not crowded so that everyone gets lost and goes their seperate ways.
