This beautiful historical home has so much to offer!
Not only does it have a rich history, it is completely updated inside and out while preserving the original look of the home. As you drive onto the property you will notice the large circle driveway and massive oak trees situated around the property. After finding a shaded place to park, step through the picket fence gate under an arbor of vines and flowers. The property is made for those that enjoy being outdoors. On 2.4 acres, it has a fully functional fenced-off garden with raised beds for your vegetables currently displaying a low maintenance butterfly garden.
The backyard area has a shaded pool to cool off our hot summer days. Sip tea while sitting under a hundred-year Oak Tree and get back to nature in the serenity the backyard provides. There is a shed perfect for holding your garden tools and could also function as a man cave or she shed!
Behind the fenced backyard is an additional .81 acres with a pole barn built on it. Bring a horse or two, make a football field, play kickball, the options are endless. You really have to see this property to give it justice. The pole barn is equipped with water and power and RV hookups.
When you walk into the front door, you will walk back into time into the original structure that is over 100 years old. It was used as a store front on the Tensaw River just a half-mile away. When the store closed, the owner decided to move it to the piece of land she owned on higher ground. The land is where part of the Old Stage Line ran to Blakely in the 1800’s. Stockton’s proximity to Tensaw River as well as it’s horse-drawn stage line is what put the little town on the map. The other rooms were added onto the structure and the property was considered a home in 1983 with the original structure becoming what is now the main living area.
The master bedroom is situated downstairs just off of the living area and has a private bath and a walk-in closet. The master bath connects to the laundry room for convenience through a side door.
Upstairs is a guest suite with a private bath and a smaller room that could be used as an office or play room.
Walking into the kitchen you will find stainless steel appliances, a double oven, and a beautiful bay window overlooking the shaded backyard and pool.
Just past the kitchen is the den. It is a second living space with its own fireplace and dining area. This home is so livable; you will use every room and have trouble deciding which is your favorite! If you need a separate master suite, convert the rear living area into one easily by adding a bath and a door.
This home is in pristine condition. It has been loved and cared for many years. The current owners are ready to part with it and move into something smaller, so here is your chance to live in a piece of history while enjoying the modern interior touches!
Old Stage Road is wonderful for someone looking to commute to Mobile while enjoy the peace and quiet of the country; it is 5 minutes from I-65 and snuggled within the rich history of the town of Stockton. Something like this doesn’t come around often, come see it and be ready to fall in love
