You only thought “Gone With the Wind-style” homes were gone forever…take a second look! This Gorgeous home in much-beloved Fairhope, Alabama embodies all the Southern charm and grace of a sprawling plantation home in 19th-century Atlanta! From your entrance onto the property through Ornate Iron Gates (carefully designed by the owners), to the Wide Staircase within, you will find yourself walking into another era! Specifically designed for hosting large groups, the house features Three fully functioning floors. The Main Floor includes Great Room, Formal Dining, Kitchen, and Master Suite. You will LOVE the Split Brick and Gleaming Hardwood floors throughout, as well as the custom hardwood door-trim and crown molding in nearly every room. The Gourmet Kitchen includes Granite Countertops, a Custom Wood Panel Fridge, and a Huge Island with Glass Cooktop. From the Spacious Upstairs Landing with Beautiful Wood Banister, you can look down into the Great Room and just imagine ballroom dancing below!
The Lower Level of the house includes a Guest Bedroom and Full Bath, as well as a Great Room and large Entertainment Center. It is here that you find one of the most unique characteristics of the home: your Bar Counter was formerly the Clerk’s Desk at the old Mobile County Courthouse! From downstairs, you have access to both a lower-level Covered Back Porch, and the Screened-In Balcony Porch upstairs. Spacious and ideal for entertainment, the Porches are certain to become your favorite place in the house—especially in spring! The whole property is surrounded by Mature Trees and Tasteful Landscaping and is simply breathtaking when all is in bloom.
Living on over Five acres, you will have all the privacy you could want…and still live only minutes from multiple one-of-a-kind places in the area! Scenic Fish River is just over 3 miles from your front door, and is perfect for a summer day jet-skiing or a relaxed Sunday evening stroll. Also nearby is Downtown Fairhope, with all its Clothing Shoppes, Spas & Salons, Local Restaurants, and Bookstores that you cannot find anywhere else! And you don’t have to travel far for authentic Cajun food: original to Louisiana, Rousse’s Supermarket is located in Spanish Fort, only a quick drive up Hwy 98. There are so many unique qualities to your new home AND its location: 16989 Ferry Road is not just a house, it is Home!
