Year Purchased: 1964
About the owner: We are just a couple of the many family members that have enjoyed this special home on Shoal Creek. Keeping with the open house feel that we have all always known and loved, we made the decision to let others enjoy it too!
Why the Owner Chose Florence, AL, USA:
The land was first purchased by the family in 1964 and has been 'home' to many. Countless wonderful memories have been made with family and friends through the years.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The most unique benefit of our home is most definitely its close proximity to the water. The house is literally inches from the water on flat ground! Another specialty would be the near distance to all restaurants, shopping centers, and many attractions that Florence and The Shoals has to offer! And we must not forget the fish - OH, THE FISH! - Many bass, catfish and others...a/k/a: THE BIG ONE...have been reeled in at the house over the years!
