Owner info

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.
