Home For Sale With Land & Storage Buildings discovered in Gulf Shores!
An expansive 3.3 acres just a mile north of the Foley Beach Expressway is now on the market with plenty of living & storage space. Follow Roscoe Road around to this private drive and discover the estate that lies beyond the bend. 6027 Shelby Home Rd is tucked away, but just 15 minutes from the popular LuLu’s Restaurant & Bar and Cypress Bend Golf Course. Continue further another 5 miles and enjoy the white sands of our Emerald Coast and bask in the sun at one of the many public beach access points.
Just over 20 years of age, this brick home is designed to withstand all of Mother Nature’s potentially hazardous moods. Inhabited by its original owners, the estate has been meticulously maintained and improved over its short lifetime. After evacuating for Hurricane Ivan in 2004 and returning to minor roof damage, the owners implemented a damage-control plan of action to avoid future storm evacuations. In 2005, they installed a durable, well-tested metal roof ($16k) and a storm shelter ($6k). For anyone sharing a love of cars and general ‘toys’, the residence offers 5 metal storage buildings to house and safely tuck away precious belongings…one of which includes a $4,000 hydraulic car lift which conveys with the home’s sale.
To enhance the living space, the home later underwent a professional expansion and upgrade. In 2016, the home was renovated to include approximately 1,000 additional square feet of living, dining and office space. That same year, the master bathroom was upgraded with a garden tub, tile shower and granite countertops at a cost of $11,500. And because this home was built to enjoy the finer things of life, an RV pad with full hook-ups also neighbors the stocked pond on the south side of the property.
Those familiar with the Gulf Shores region recognize the difficulty in finding flat, usable acreage that is not in a flood zone; but, this is undeniably a treasure worth exploring. Despite their love for this home and land, the sellers have a desire to pass it on to deserving new owners that have the ability to bring new life and love to this piece of earth. Anyone wishing to enjoy all the pleasures of the Gulf Coast beaches, seafood and accredited public school system will delight in the promising opportunities this estate offers!
