Remarks


This historic casually elegant home was built in 1927 for a young lumber mogul and continues after 89 years to be a single family residence on nearly 2.5 acres in the heartbeat of the city, midtown mobile. Known as millionaire''s row, government street became the city''s most prestigious address. Sought after architect, john platt roberts, designed the nearly 8,000 square foot unique structure with the reputation of being the finest example of spanish colonial architecture in mobile. The hardest wood in the world, teak, was imported from india to grace the first floor. A floating circular stairwell was delivered to the port of mobile from spain, as were the intricately designed iron double doors offering access to an expansive porch stretching its way toward government st. This proud structure, making it''s debut after extensive restoration, now sports a fabulous kitchen, anchored with brick and stone, custom cabinets, all new appliances and a distinct european flair. The master bath is patterned in marble and pencil ''bamboo'' tile. An adjoining dressing room and room size closet with narrow oak flooring, complete the master suite. A cuban tile wall fountain, iron arches, french doors, ceiling fans and a pecky cypress ceiling in the spacious sunroom, offer free flow to the beautiful grounds. A carriage house with two car garage nestles alongside a pond of soothing sounds from the tiered ''angel'' fountain. A tribute to the past, and a design for modern functional family living at an affordable price.
