4 bedrooms | 2 bathrooms | 3,027 square feet | 1830

This exquisitely proportioned home represents the transition from the Federal style to that of Greek Revival and is nestled on a small estate in the bucolic outskirts of Montgomery, just 7 miles from bustling downtown and 10 minutes from Montgomery Regional Airport. Modern bathrooms and updated kitchen blend beautifully with the original historic and architectural stylings of the original structure listed on the Alabama Historic Register of Landmarks and Heritage. The 3,000+ square foot house boasts large central hallway, original high ceilings, heart pine floors, many original windows, four fireplaces, and is of massive hand-hewn construction. The magnificent formal gardens, including a pond, Italian cypress allee, topiary hedges, fruit tree orchard, rose garden, shade garden, perennial garden, boxwood sculpture garden, and maze garden were created by noted landscape designer Martin Mayer who used elements of Italian, English landscape, Victorian, and early 20th century designs. A detached structure contains a workshop, storage, 2 car garage and 2 car car-port. This is truly a magnificent estate for anyone who appreciates history, historical architecture, and lush landscaping. Oh, and did I mention that Tallulah Bankhead visited her great grandmother and slept here many times!
