Description

For the first time in over 45 years, a true LANDMARK property is being brought to market. If only these walls could speak, they would tell the tales of Al Capone and how this historic home was once used as a getaway for the infamous mob boss in the early 1900s. A mere minutes to the beautiful beaches of the Alabama Gulf Coast, this extraordinary piece of solid concrete architecture was started in 1901 and not completed until 1906. The 1.8 acre property includes 264 ft of waterfront on Brights Creek, which is just off of the Bon Secour River, a place the locals know is fitting for the meaning of the name "safe harbor. The 4,039 sqft home consists of two connected structures with a second story breezeway that includes 6 bedrooms, 5 fireplaces and a wood stove. Even Juliet herself would swoon at the fact that every bedroom has a balcony fit for a princess. The main houses grand entrance boasts original iron railings and concrete formed steps opening up to a large living area with a wood burning fireplace and stunning spiral staircase ascending to the second story. There is a storm/root cellar located under the kitchen floor and rumor has it, there is a hidden room that is yet to be found! Dripping in moss-covered oak trees, the landscape slopes gently towards the two boat docks which provide plenty of room for mooring. The potential and opportunity this property exudes is endless if you have vision and a love of history. You wont want to miss seeing this gem and making it your own!
