Property Description

This historic 5 bedroom Craftsman style home located across from the Eastern Shore Art Center, is a 5 minute walk to downtown Fairhope. Full of artistic flair, the home features the best of period and contemporary detailing. A beautiful arched pair of mahogany and glass doors open to a light-filled 2 story vaulted entry. Through a large archway, you come to the first living area. Expansive and bright, it is ideal for entertaining with rear terrace doors, 9’ ceilings, and a double-sided gas fireplace connecting to an airy sitting/game room. In the original portion of the house, a second living area flows into the kitchen and radiates cottage charm with its mahogany wainscotting, wood floors, vintage wood detailing, dramatic arches, gas fireplace, and craftsman color palette. This is open concept living at its best. A separate dining room with terrace doors to the back patio connects to the kitchen as well. You will love the curved front porch with a beautiful artisan designed mosaic floor. Nestled behind the azaleas, it is the perfect place for morning coffee, or an afternoon cocktail. Also downstairs is a bedroom and bathroom with a large walk-in shower. On the second floor, where a bridge overlooks the entry, is the master suite and three additional bedrooms. The master bedroom has a 12’ vaulted ceiling and its own private balcony. The master bath has a vaulted ceiling with skylights, a jetted tub in an arched alcove surrounded by travertine marble, a steam shower, double vanities with Alabama white marble countertops, and a generous walk-in closet. The front bedroom also has 12’ vaulted ceilings and large cathedral windows. It could make an ideal home office, nursery, or North light-filled artist’s studio. The two remaining bedrooms, separate sitting area, bathroom, and side balcony makes for a great kids’ get-away. The home’s outdoor spaces include an entry porch, second covered front porch, rear grilling pergola, and back patio with built-in planters. The property has a 20’ easement from Bancroft Street which allows for off-street parking and the opportunity to add a 2 car garage at the east end of the back yard. The property is zoned to allow business as well as residential use. The house has provided positive income as a vrbo rental and with its location and layout could make a wonderful office or bed and breakfast. In fact, it is currently operating as a Bed & Breakfast, and therefore, can be shown after Jan 2nd.
