About the Property

3 bedroom, 2 bath on the Bay

Very private 3 bedroom, 2 bath home situated on a 1.5 acre lot on historic Mobile Bay. The gourmet kitchen includes a gas stove and built-in ice maker. The living areas open on to a sun deck with outdoor shower and a covered 50ft. screened-in gallery which is great for relaxing after a day on the beach. There is also a covered gazebo and 150 ft. pier on the Bay for fishing and crabbing or just watching the spectacular sunsets!
