About the property

Four Bedroom Three Bath Completely Renovated In 2001 And Update Spring 2015.

This beautiful Historic craftsman style home is located at the edge of downtown Fairhope, directly across from the Eastern Shore art center and gallery. The home is only a five minute walk to the center of down town Fairhope with its many shops, restaurants, spas, and galleries. Four 18 hole golf courses, including two at the Marriott Grand Hotel are within a fifteen minute drive. The home features contemporary and period detailing with hardwood and marble floors, custom molding, updated appliances, and original artwork from local and international artists.

This home fully furnished with everything you need for a weekend, week, or long term. Whether you are a family looking for a weekend get a way, a new arrival needing a place till you find a home of your own, or you are looking for a place to escape the ice and snow and enjoy this areas mild winters. Just bring in your bags and relax.

You know you are some place special when you walk through the ten foot mahogany and glass doors into a two story vaulted entry and stair hall. To your left, you will find the billiards room with six foot Brunswick pool table, and Baldwin upright piano. Next is the first of two living areas, bright and open, it features stained concrete floors and a double sided gas fireplace. Comfy furniture make it the perfect spot for family and friends to gather for playing games or watching television.

Moving up three steps and through an arched opening, you enter the original portion of the house with its mahogany wainscot walls, coffered ceilings, and hardwood floors. It is open concept living at its best. This area includes a beautiful dining room which opens up to the exterior as well as the kitchen and easily accommodates 10 guests. The spacious kitchen is equipped with modern appliances and everything you need to prepare a gourmet meal at home. The second living area, open to the kitchen radiates cottage charm with vintage wood detailing and a craftsman color palette. Here you can turn on the gas fireplace to warm up those cool fall and spring evenings and cuddle up on the sofa to watch a movie or the big game on the flat screen. There is even a small curved front porch with custom mosaic flooring nestled behind the azaleas, an ideal nook for morning coffee or afternoon cocktail. Just off the living room is the downstairs bedroom which sleeps two and bathroom with jetted tub/shower combination.

On to the second floor, where a bridge overlooking the entry takes you to the master suite and office to the right and the two bedroom upper wing to the left. If you head to the right, off a short hall featuring its own window overlooking the foyer is the master bathroom. And what a master bathroom; a twelve foot high vaulted ceiling with skylight views, beautiful jetted tub in an arched alcove surrounded by travertine marble floors, separate tiled steam shower, double vanities with Alabama white marble countertops, and generous walk-in closet. Then head to the master bedroom with its vaulted ceilings and pillow top queen bed for a restful night’s sleep. Open the bedroom’s double doors and step out on to your own private balcony, the perfect spot to catch up on your reading or share an evening nightcap. Should you need to get some work done, walk down the short hall into the private office. There you will find a wireless printer with plenty of desk space. The office also has a sleeper sofa and wardrobe to provide additional sleeping accommodations and boasts a fourteen foot high vaulted ceiling with cathedral windows that allow the north light to pour in.

Back at the stairs to the left, you will find the remaining two bedrooms, bathroom, laundry, side balcony and separate sitting area with flat screen television, ideal for kids or grand kids to have get-a-away space of their own. The bedrooms sleep a total of four, one has a full bed and the other bedroom has two twin beds. The bathroom has a tub/shower combination. An additional separate vanity is located outside the bathroom.

The exterior of the home offers several outdoor spaces including a covered front porch, rear terrace with fire pit, and outdoor kitchen area. There is even a 6 person spa to soak those tired muscles after 18 holes of golf or a long day of shopping.

Take some time to look at the pictures of our home and if you have any questions, please contact me.

We look forward to hearing from you,

Peter Sikorowski

Why Peter Sikorowski chose Fairhope

After moving to Fairhope in the late 1980' s I fell in love with the down town area. It was the perfect mix of a urban and small town. I found the perfect property in 1991 located at 404 oak av. walking distance from a grocery store, restaurants, galleries, live music venues, craft shows and numerous special events.

What makes this house unique

After parching the home it went through two renovation. One restoring the original structure and the other adding a major addition in 2000. Through out the renovations period wood work was added spaces were redesigned creating a mix of interment and open spaces.

This house is perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

We were in fairhope for our sons wedding. We held his rehearsal dinner at the lakeshore art center which is directly across the street. The house was perfect for ourfamily! The house has everything you need and more!! When we couldn't figure out how to work the oven, someone was here in 10 minutes to help. I couldn't recommend a better or more convenient place. We walked to and from the wedding enjoying this quaint city. Highly recommend!!

April in Fairhope

404 Oak St. was perfect for our visit. We were working a conference at the Grand and entertaining clients in the evening. The kitchen and patio area were ideal. I hope we can come back soon!
