Lake home tour

April 28, 2016


previewThis lovely home in Fairhope isn’t just elegant, it also has the benefit of overlooking this .  .  .


preview-9 . . . beautiful lake. “Oh darling, do row us around once more before tea in the gazebo. You know I adore the way your eyes reflect the water.”


DSC_8992Located in “The Waters at Fairhope,” this four bedroom, four bath house is only two years old and has all of the luxuries and charm of a proper Southern home.


DSC_8940The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining, or just sliding around the floor in your socks. (You know you would).


DSC_8944The kitchen includes a Thermador cooktop, double ovens, wine cooler and granite countertops. Food practically cooks itself in here.


DSC_8947Isn’t this beautiful? There’s also a huge pantry for lots of storage. You need to bring your own refrigerator, but we have lots of ice-box stores around here. Didn’t your grandmother call it an ice-box?


DSC_8999The master bedroom has a great sitting area that overlooks the lake.


DSC_9011If I had this master bath for my dressing room, I’d look a lot better than I do now. I think this is based on Cinderella’s dressing area. The window probably opens so little birds can come in and tie your ribbons. Yet with all the wood touches, it isn’t too frilly, so the Prince will also be happy and quite dapper.


preview-6The back screened porch features a cozy fireplace and kitchen area. With our balmy climate, this room could be used almost year-round, and of course, it overlooks that shimmery lake.



preview-4One more view from the pavilion, where I’m sure I’d put a few rocking chairs . . .  ahhhh. Such a lovely, peaceful and charming home.


This home is listed for $799,000.
