Description for 1949 RIVER RD, MOBILE, AL 36605
The architect did an outstanding job with this country river house that was lovingly updated with a new wing, yet kept its original 1935 charm. You'll love the large master bedroom with a bank of windows overlooking the lawn and river, a glamour bath with garden tub and corner windows, a separate shower and his and her vanities plus two large walk-in closets. There are also two bedrooms with a jack and jill bath, a large bonus room/bedroom with half bath upstairs, a half bath near the kitchen and another full bath in the hallway. The house is designed around river life with french doors and sliding glass doors opening to the sweeping wrap around covered porches commanding spectacular views of Dog River. Wide staircases lead to the beautiful lawn and the covered private boat dock with two boat lifts. The kitchen has custom cabinets, Subzero refrigerator, Thermador gas cooktop and built-in oven/microwave. On the street side of the property, you'll find a two bedroom/one bath 1200 sq. ft. guest house above a garage, with a large open deck. Such a wonderful property with good bones: Over the last 4 years the current owner installed 2 new HVAC systems, new porch, new roof, extra insulation, retaining wall, and updated the whole house generator. This 3-1/2+ acre gated waterfront estate is at the end of a street tucked away from the world, yet only 10 minutes from shopping, movies, the ball park and all the City amenities. At over 3 acres and over 300' waterfront, this extremely private, beautiful property is priced to sell!
