Description for 55 MCGREGOR S AVENUE, Mobile, AL 36608

One of the South’s finest Greek Revival Mansions, Palmetto Hall - a truly extraordinary property offered for sale! Palmetto Hall, located in the heart of Spring Hill in Mobile, AL dates back to c. 1846. It was built by Charlestonian, John Dawson as a replica of his family home on the Battery in Charleston. The property was given the name Palmetto Hall to pay homage to the state flower of South Carolina. It is on the market for sale for the first time in almost 58 years. Palmetto Hall is an excellent example of antebellum Greek Revival architecture and has been featured in many national publications & in the book, "A Treasury of Great American Houses." The property is over 8500 sq. feet and has 5 bedrooms and 6.5 baths. You enter onto 3.8 acres of property through handsome wrought iron gates on a circular drive leading to the stunning façade with a deep portico with large Tuscan columns below and double porch above with balustrades supported by fluted Doric columns. The ground floor is stucco over masonry and the top floor is wood construction. An impressive entry, a two-story Foyer, is flanked by two sets of Corinthian columns at each end of the Foyer and a sweeping cantilevered staircase with a deeply coved ceiling above bordered by an octagonal shape and exquisitely molded cornice highlighted by a remarkable chandelier. Palmetto Hall has exceptionally spacious rooms, incredible marble mantels throughout, stunning hardwood floors, wonderful friezes & plaster work, amazing millwork, fabulous fitting & hardware, & breathtaking antique chandeliers. The Ballroom which provides a glorious entertaining space could also be used as a downstairs master bedroom (to be a 6th bedroom). A lovely, long loggia with inlaid marble floors connects the Ballroom to the Dining room & Foyer & floods the back of the house with natural light while providing splendid views over the extensive grounds, patio, and pool. In the wood-paneled Living room, the heavily carved overdoors and over mantel millwork date back to c. 1760 with a mantel dating back to c. 1780. The Breakfast room, pantry and kitchen feature cypress paneling and cabinetry with gun storage and flooring from bricks original to the house as well as an impressive circular iron stairwell. The kitchen which has previously been updated has an indoor grill, a gas stovetop, granite counters and a dining space. The ceilings on both floors are expansive. Each of the upstairs bedrooms have an ensuite bath. One has a handsomely paneled sitting room attached. The master bedroom is spacious with a large master bath with a ceiling reminiscent of the shape of the foyer ceiling and Sherle Wagner vintage fixtures. The rear of the property has a wonderful nearly symmetrical façade. Around 1960, New Orleans architect, Myrlin McCullough, helped the owners update the house for modern living and expanded the footprint of the house. Added features of this property include a guest/caretaker’s cottage, fencing, a three- car detached carport with workspace, and an elevator in the main house. The grounds have gorgeous trees and very mature estate sized Camellias and other lovely plantings providing a feeling of calmness and serenity. Palmetto Hall has too many other exquisite details to mention here. This is a very rare opportunity to purchase a grand, historic estate home of historic significance. Don’t let this opportunity slip away!
