    Description

    Wonderful 2/2 Charming Cottage circa 1885 and is located on a renowned block of the Oakleigh Garden District. This lovely, very spacious property is located right next door to the Mobiles very own Joe Cain House and neighborhood lore says Joe Cain planted the oaks in front of this home. At Mardi Gras, you will enjoy a street party held here to honor Joe Cain. As you approach the house, youre greeted by a large 23 foot-long front porch ideal for a cool drink and relaxing. You enter through the double front doors with original etched glass with a Greek key and floral design. You are welcomed into a very expansive center hall foyer that stretches 28 feet from front to back. The house has 12- foot ceilings that give a great sense of space, 5 former coal-burning fireplaces (non-operational) throughout the home and the original heart of pine floors. The dining room and living room can be interchangeable for the buyer to use to their choosing. The present large dining room has an exquisite marble inlay mantle that is complementary in design to the glass front doors and a bank of sunny bay windows overlooking the front yard as well as a big window opening out onto the front porch. The living room has a lovely mantle and exudes the feeling of a handsome library with dark walls, Venetian-esque cornices, and beautiful drapes. The kitchen and den also with a fireplace have a more modern open concept floor plan. The front bedroom with a fireplace looks out to the front porch and has terrific windows that open to the front porch. The master bedroom located to the rear of the home also has a fireplace with an ensuite bath with black and white tile floors and a claw foot tub with shower. The hall bath has shiplap walls with black and white tile floors, a claw foot tub and pedestal sink. The property is sited on a very large lot for the neighborhood. The crown jewel of this gem of a property awaits you in the spectacular back yard. The home has an 18 x 6 foot back porch that opens onto an absolutely exquisite private tropical oasis with a custom-built koi pond, a large entertainment gazebo and an abundance of mature plants of many varieties including sago palm, elephant ears, umbrella palms, ginger lilies, and many mature trees. This is a garden- lovers dream and is a fantastic place to relax or entertain. There are 3 off-street parking spots at this home! You are within one block of Callaghans and Washington Square and are a very short walk to Downtown Dauphin Street with all it has to offer. Make your appointment today to see this Oakleigh Garden District charmer!
