Don’t miss this highly desirable Home with Beautiful Hardwood Floors For Sale in the Fruit and Nut District!
The highly desirable and sought after Fruit & Nut District in one of the most historic areas of Fairhope, Alabama is a must-see area for those looking for a waterfront home in a convenient location. The Fruit & Nut District is only half an hour away from Mobile, Alabama and less than an hour away from Orange Beach and the Gulf of Mexico. The historic and beautiful homes in the Fruit & Nut District all sit on streets named after fruit and nut trees, which lend this area its name. Walking through this area, you’ll find a variety of different houses, including classic summer cottages and upscale modern homes. The streets here are about as scenic and charming as it gets, with oak trees lining the walks and the sound of the water in Mobile Bay playing in the distance. This is the kind of neighborhood where residents take daily walks, kids ride their bikes up and down the roads, and families play fetch with their dogs at the park. When the current owner bought 466 Pomelo Street in 2010 he knew it was perfect because of the privacy, peace and quiet, and the closeness to the bay for short or long walks. He immediately fell in love with the local community and called it a little slice of paradise.
For the seller, schools were not a factor in his decision to buy this home, but with that being said, you can actually drive the kids by golf cart to the local elementary school that is downtown–which is pretty neat! He would say the top features of his home are “that it has many great improvements that have been made, it is very efficient and economical, the lot is very private as there is a wooded area on one side and a neighbor’s nice back yard that is behind the home. The home also has a nice sized front and back yard and the possibilities are limitless as it’s in such a great location. It also has room for guests as well.” Most of the time you will find him outdoors down by the bay but when at home he loves to relax in the living room and watch a little bit of TV or entertain guests.
Since owning the home, the seller has made a lot of improvements to include the following in his own words… new roof, paint on inside and out, new heating and air system, ceiling fans in all rooms, faux wood blinds throughout, Pergo hardwood flooring and ceramic tile throughout for flooring, crown molding, granite countertops, tile backsplash, new deep sinks in kitchen, new heavy duty attic ladder, new fans in bathrooms, all new stainless appliances, new French doors, new front door, some new doors on the inside, satsuma, blueberry, fig, pear, crepe myrtle bushes, removed some trees.” When the seller is not busy updating the home or at the bay you may find him shopping downtown at his favorite shops; he said there were too many to list but he loves them all and everything about this quaint town.
The Seller has to admit he is going to miss going to the boat launches and fishing on the piers or even just walking, boating and kayaking in the great outdoors. This home was his retirement home and is a little slice of paradise in Fairhope. He describes it like ” living permanently at a vacation home with so many great things available so close.” He has decided to sell his home due to a job opportunity and health issues. He never thought he would ever sell this place but GOD has other plans.
