A Fabulous Traditional House

October 2, 2015


IMG_6648Fairhope has quite a range of different house styles, small bungalows downtown, ranch houses and coastal cottages along the bay. But if you keep driving a bit farther out of town, you’ll find yourself on relaxing tree lined roads surrounded by soft rolling hills where the privacy and peaceful scenery are all yours.


226793_1Welcome to the most gorgeous traditional home in our area, and if you think this is beautiful, just wait until you see inside.


226793_35Sitting on 12.3 fenced acres, this 5,300+ square foot home was built with the highest level of craftsmanship in every detail. It’s truly one of the premier residences in Fairhope.


226793_34Antique heart pine floors, handmade bricks and coffered ceilings give that perfect mix of formality and casualness where you and your family would be totally relaxed.


226793_7Do you think you could manage to pull yourself off one of the two large porches to whip up a meal in this amazing kitchen? Anything would taste good in here!


226793_28And I actually think I could learn to love doing laundry in this multipurpose room.


226793_14The view from the master bedroom overlooks the beautiful green rolling landscape.


226793_17And I think you’ll agree, this custom closet rivals any outdoor landscape you could find. I think I’d actually pull up a chair and just stare at all that glorious storage!


226793_18I could write some mighty fine articles from this desk . . . or wait, would I want to use the other office?


226793_27This office is cozier and closer to the family action.

226793_9The butler’s pantry and wet bar area leads into the dining room, which by the way. . . I love having a dedicated dining room. I think the trend is to ditch this room and make everyone have formal dinners in the kitchen. What’s that? No more formal dinners? What is the world coming to?


226793_5And I think this is a different dining area. The rugs are different. Mercy daisy, I’m officially lost.


226793_10Here’s the cozy breakfast nook. Mmm. Grits never tasted so good!


226793_16The master bathroom is not only beautiful, but the storage is wonderful. No more towels shoved in the back of the cabinet!

The back porch is just as pretty as the front, with plenty of room for romping in the green grass. You do like to romp, don’t you? Because if you do . . .


226793_38-2this will be your view.  Ahhh. Perfect.


The listing price on this home and land is $1,668,500.

  • Mercy daisy, indeed!! There is not a single thing I would change. Gorgeous!!

    • Leslie Anne says:

      A professional cook would be the only thing I’d add.

    • Leslie Anne says:

      I love a house that has plenty of parking, just in case I decide to throw a spur of the moment soiree’!

  • What a beautiful home – I have laundry room and closet envy over here….amazing spaces! Happy Monday!

    • Leslie Anne says:

      I do like the way the spaces are all open and even the connecting areas don’t feel dark or closed in.

  • I always thought it would be fun to live by you, now I can! And have you over for a formal dinner! Dusting off the china now.

    • Leslie Anne says:

      Ha! I think this house would even make paper plates look good . . . but why push it? 8pm?

  • Hi Little Bitty Pretty One! Oh, my goodness! What a place. I can’t imagine living there but it would be a dream! If I lived there I would definitely have to have someone cook my grits for me! 🙂 Thanks for popping in and hope you’ve had a nice weekend.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia 😉

    • Leslie Anne says:

      I’ll cook the grits for you if you let me hang out with you on the back porch!

  • Wowza!!! I am in love with that gorgeous house. I could just live in the laundry room. I would not change one thing! Have a great week!

    • Leslie Anne says:

      Yes, the laundry room is lovely, until you add the laundry! But it’s so roomy and bright it would make the most gigantic pile of boy clothes not quite as bad as before!

  • Leslie Anne says:

    And although it looks like it’s out in the country, it’s really only minutes from downtown!

  • The house looks like it is all of those nice things you said and then some. Stunningly beautiful yet livable.

  • Wow, what a house! Are you sure it’s only 5,000 sq.ft.? It looks much larger. The laundry room and offices are my favorite spaces. Does that make me a Domestic Goddess?!

    • Leslie Anne says:

      It’s quite a laundry room! I think I may agree with you there.

  • Leslie Anne,
    that home is AMAZING! I’d never want to leave if I lived there! The heart pine floors, the kitchen and that master bath…….could you want anything more!

    • Leslie Anne says:

      Maybe a swimming pool and a pony, but that could be easily added!
