Gorgeous historical home located in the heart of Alabama's largest historic district. This c.1892 beauty was renovated a few times over the years and was originally a one story Italianate cottage. Around the turn of the 20th century the home was updated with beautiful artisan touches like the spectacular coiffured ceiling in the dining room, wainscoting in the parlor and massive pocket doors separating the two. Intricate wood details on the stair railings can be seen as you enter the home into the large foyer. A real plus for this historic home is the geo-thermal heating and cooling units keep the temperature constant and the utility bills reasonable, even with the 12 1/2 foot ceilings! The original heart pine floor remains in some areas and others were covered in a lovely oak, the pine remaining underneath. The kitchen received a modern update in recent years and has all the amenities necessary for family life and grand scale entertaining including red oak custom cabinetry, granite countertops and a large gas range. I guarantee you will want to take your guests outdoors however, to enjoy the huge attached outdoor kitchen and screened in porch area overlooking the landscaped grounds and swimming pool. An 8 ft wooden fence ensures plenty of privacy in this backyard oasis. With 6 bedrooms and 4 baths this home could easily be used as a fabulous southern bed and breakfast destination. Truly a must see property, make an appointment today!
