Built in 2005, this Fairhope gem is a unique design by local architect, Lee Verneulle. Situated on a large corner lot, it shares an easement and common area with six other properties, all of which are owned by professionals in the local community. Various fruit trees, berry vines and several Japanese Maples dot the landscape of the corner lot. A magnificent sprawling Oak tree highlights and shades the rear brick paved patio. Also, recognized by Fairhope’s Tree Committee and Wisteria Garden Club for its remarkable size and age, a stately Red Juniper Tree adorns the front lawn.
