About the Property
Fascinating mountain home of one of Huntsville's Rocket Men
This one story mountaintop bungalow sits on two acres and is perfect for a family vacation, girl's retreat or home base when attending a Lodge or Burritt wedding. Those interested in Huntsville's space history will find this house and the story it tells fascinating. With the wonder of nature right outside your back door, you are able to walk or ride a bike to the state park with its beautiful hiking trails and you are still only minutes away from the Medical District, 5 Points and the Space and Rocket Center. If you head west you are only 5 miles from the Robert Trent Jones golf course and Hampton Cove. This fully furnished home has a king bed in the master bedroom with a huge walk in closet, two twins (one is an antique suitable for a child or small person) and double bed in the second bedroom, and a fold out sofa and twin bed in the third bedroom/library. There are also two foldaway beds and a baby bed if you need one. For a party of 12, or just to have a bit more room, a "glamper" that sleeps two is available. The house has two full bathrooms; one with a tub shower, and the other with a walk in shower. There are two steps down (with handicap handrail) from the living room to the bedrooms. There is plenty of closet space, a full sized washer and dryer, iron and ironing board, cookware, dishes and utensils, a dining table that will seat 10, a well stocked library and a gorgeous fireplace to sit and enjoy yourself for as long as you like. TV, cable, wireless internet, outdoor fire pit grill, covered porch,and many more amenities are provided. This lovely home is filled with beautiful antiques, oriental carpets and all the extras to make you feel right at home. The hosts live next door and can help with any particular needs you might have.

Year Purchased: 1960
About the owner: We are both from Huntsville, but have lived in many other places. We moved back to Huntsville in 1996 and bought the house next door to this one, which is the house Fred grew up in.
Why the Owner Chose Monte Sano Mountain (Huntsville, AL, USA):
Wouldn't live anywhere else in Huntsville but Monte Sano. It's like always being on vacation. Monte Sano, Mountain of Health, has long been known for its healthy environment and was historically believed the furthermost southern area to escape malaria, yellow fever and cholera due in part to its cooling winds, el viento.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
1 mile to Monte Sano State Park, 7 miles to Robert Trent Jones Golf Course, 5 miles to Space and Rocket Center, this property is centrally located but has the room and privacy of a cabin in the woods.
