Historic Magnolia Tree Makes this Home Famous!!
September 25, 2017 | Owen Gill

           

Built in the 1930's, this home is often overlooked because of the iconic centuries old Magnolia Tree that is believed to be one of the oldest trees to exist in the county. This tree has been featured on postcards in gift shops in the Foley area and is as important a landmark as there is for the history of old Foley. The current owner Mrs. Billie Parker literally took me on a walk through history as we toured the 3.5 acres that surround the home.  I couldn't help but notice the old barn and the blueberry and fig trees throughout the property.  You can get lost in the abundance of plant life while taking a stroll around the land or the chirping of different birds flying overhead and landing on the many tree branches throughout.

                 

Now step inside and find yourself in a home that has respect for the history of the home while also providing some modern charm that is appealing to any age of prospective buyer that wants to call this place their home!! The original home has an open ceiling with exposed beams that gives it a rustic, yet unique style different from anything else in the area.  Continue on to see the original three bedrooms and bathroom that have been updated yet still maintain a historic reference to the many memories that have been shared in the past.  When you enter the kitchen, you'll fall in love with the bright, open design complete with granite counter tops, a large dining area, and popular white cabinets that are the choice of any modern designer.  With large windows overlooking the back yard, you can drink coffee while encountering any number of popular animals that often appear out of the woods.  The upstairs comes with a large master bedroom and bathroom as well as a private balcony with an electric awning to provide shade for those hot summer days in South Alabama.  From there, is a unique loft area where grand kids have celebrated many holidays opening presents and laughing as they challenge each other to friendly games and contests!!

With so many options for restaurants and shopping in Foley, this home keeps you away from the hustle and bustle of crowds yet has you close enough to enjoy all that the area has to offer.  Don't forget to stop into Lambert's Cafe and enjoy some throwed rolls or visit the brand new OWA theme Park for exciting thrills on all the rides!! Tanger Outlets will provide all of your shopping needs and Friday nights at Foley high school in the Fall is a great place to enjoy football where iconic figures such as University of Alabama and current Atlanta Falcon Julio Jones and Hall of Fame Quarterback Kenny Stabler began to ooh and ahh the fans years ago!!
