Property Description

This is your chance to own a piece of Fairhope history. This charming home, sitting on 1.75 acres, was the original Ingersoll farmhouse - the existing pool house was the dairy. The main house is almost 3000 sqft , with four bedrooms & three and a half baths. The pool house is over 1700 square feet and looks out over a huge concrete pool. Almost two acres and this close to town is a rare find; this lovely parcel is home to dozens of trees & a beautiful garden. SO much charm and character in both structures - truly a Fairhope gem. Make it yours! Here is an excerpt from the listing description from several decades ago, written by the current owner's mother. "In 1934, the Ingersoll family cleared trees from their 15 acre lot and built a two story frame home on the property. The home had a single bedroom downstairs and a large dormer room upstairs that was shared by the children. At the south was a hay barn where cows were pastured and milked." Truly a historic Fairhope property.
