About Jack or Phyllis Kirby

Lived in Scottsboro 60 years and think it is the most friendly place with lots of things to see around here. Some of the best golfing and absolutely the best fishing any where. Have had many bass tournaments around here and just this year the guy who won the bass tournament fished right in front of our house. Jack sold insurance here for about 40 years and is semi-retired so he can fish more. We go to the Methodist Church just down the street and have 3 children and the most PERFECT 4 grandchildren. Phyllis is a Jackson County Highland Ambassador for the Chamber of Commerce. She is an avid gardener in the garden club so keeps things looking pretty.

Jack or Phyllis Kirby purchased this house in 2000

Why Jack or Phyllis Kirby chose Guntersville Lake

Purchased this house because it was next to the house I had my insurance office in and I had purchased the house next to it when my Mother died. One day I hope to sell all this acreage to a large company and move the houses to some vacant lots I own and rent them there.

What makes this house unique

This house is very warm and inviting and in such a great location to everything you will need. It is nice just to sit outside and watch what is going on around you instead of being cooped up in a motel. Nice area to just get out and take a walk around the neighborhood.
