The peaceful feeling you get when you wake up to the sun rising over the water or relaxing with a glass of wine as the sun goes to bed beneath the waterline, is why waterfront living is one of the most sought after lifestyles on the Alabama Gulf Coast. When we asked our seller to describe the moment when she was certain she had found her ideal home, she replied “Sitting and looking out over the water was a definite deciding factor. The bright and spacious feel of the inside of the home also played a big role in my decision.” She went on to explain that in addition to the beautiful view of Mobile Bay from 9815 East Avenue, there is a peacefulness achieved through the remote feeling of the location, yet you are actually a very close drive to all that the City of Mobile has to offer. Thus, you don’t have to sacrifice convenience for paradise!
The luster of the waterfront location is obviously the most prestigious selling feature of the newest Jason Will Real Estate Team’s waterfront listing but the selling features of the property go far beyond the view. According to our gracious seller, some additional selling features are the master suite with its own private balcony, an ideal spot for morning coffee. The screened-in front porch is their favorite place to dine, as well as entertain family and friends.
So when they are not entranced by the beauty of their surroundings, what do our sellers do for fun? “We love to drive to Dauphin Island for early morning walks on the beach and occasionally we visit the bird sanctuary” our seller explained. Dauphin Island is Alabama’s sole barrier island and was recently voted one of the 10 best U.S. islands by USAtoday.com. Luckily for our sellers, the island is a mere 15 minutes away from their home in Theodore, AL. Gliding over the water in a kayak when the bay is calm and catching a glimpse of a dolphin cresting above the surface for a quick breath, is also one of their preferred ways to spend an afternoon.
Today’s real estate buyer looks for homes that are as “turn-key ready” as possible and our sellers have made very extensive repairs to the property, that are extremely important to folks in the market for waterfront real estate, like:
- Raising the bulkhead to 7 feet
- Adding a boathouse, a deck, a boardwalk and pergola
- Expanding the enclosed porch overlooking the water
- Building a balcony off of the master bedroom
- Installing a stocked koi and goldfish pond at the entrance of the property
