Welcome home and enjoy a piece of history in Historic Midtown Mobile!!  Built in 1926, this amazing house has only had 2 owners since it was built by the architect William March.  March is responsible for designing and building a number of historic homes and churches in the historic Mobile district. With over an acre of property directly on Government St, you will not have the opportunity to own a lot of this size in the Midtown area.

 The original home consisted of three bedrooms and 2 baths and has seen a major transformation since the current owners bought the property in 1976.  Some of the additions include a den and balcony overlooking the gunite pool with a 12 foot deep end and outdoor entertaining space perfect for any Mardi Gras celebration or other popular Mobile events.  A kitchen perfect for any culinary challenge awaits you with a full sized butler galley and all top of the line appliances, counter tops, and cabinets sets this home apart from it's historic neighbors.  A finished basement with a full kitchen and bathroom and living room can be a guest suite or a great entertaining space as well as the converted garage where many games of poker were enjoyed in the evenings!!

The property isn't the only feature that makes it a desirable place to call home.  When I talked to the owner, he raved about the numerous restaurants that he and his wife frequented and reminisced about evening walks to enjoy local theaters and made memories enjoying multiple performances.  His wife was a playwright for the area and her passion for the stage was shared with him and their children.  The live oak that sits in the back yard is as old as the home and has been a part of their life and the previous owners since the home was built.  With the rich history of Mardi Gras and the parades that pass in front of their home, you can enjoy a passion and experience that has made Mobile and this house a great place to call home.  Click on the link below to take a tour of the home below with our 4D virtual tour presented by our agency to get a glimpse into history!!
