I think you will fall in love with this charming place just as quickly as I did!
This wonderfully unique Fairhope cottage combines the custom finishes of an updated home and the Southern charm of a historic cottage. Located in the heart of Fairhope’s attractive Fruit & Nut section, you will find convenient walkability to Downtown Fairhope‘s boutique shopping, art galleries, fine dining, and numerous local events. Think Hertha’s Second Edition, The Colony Shop, Lyons Share Gallery, and Julwin’s, to name just a FEW! 61 White Avenue sits on a corner lot, beckoning the gaze of every passerby with its beautiful white picket fence. Enjoy your warm welcome into the home via a wide screened front porch, where you can enjoy the breeze off Mobile Bay, which is mere steps away! The integrity of the classic style was maintained, and the oversized living room has been expanded with custom architectural updates including grand vaulted ceilings, a built-in bookshelf, and an attractive stone fireplace. Designed by notable Gulf Coast architect Fred Wagner, the exposed roof trusses and flow of the main living space create an ideal atmosphere for either entertaining or enjoying coffee with a good book!

The original hardwood floors and abundance of windows throughout this home accentuate the updated kitchen with an open concept design. Complete with a gas range and convection oven, the sunlit kitchen also offers stone counters and a breakfast bar, while the separate wine bar (featuring stone counters, wine glass rack, glass-front cabinets, and wine cooler) is conveniently located nearby. And did I mention the formal dining room with gorgeous window seats? You are sure to appreciate the spacious master suite on the main level with beautiful crown molding and ample space to relax by the windows, as well as the convenience of 3 large closets and a private bath. Upstairs you will find 3 more bedrooms, including one attic-style bedroom with a window seat and tasteful built-in cabinets. A full bathroom, large walk-in closets, and 2 large attic access points for easy storage round out the upstairs.
Do you prefer to enjoy the coastal sounds and sunshine outdoors? The tranquil indoor/outdoor feel of this home benefits from 2 private, lushly landscaped patios conveniently situated on opposite sides of the den. A separate 680 sq. ft. guest house (that was once a barn!) is available for your company to enjoy when visiting! Comprised of a living room, bathroom, and loft bedroom, the guest house claims French doors as well as a delightful spiral staircase. Last but not least, your deep two-car carport has additional attic space and is accessible from the Bayview Street side of the property.
