Custom Large Brick Home in Fairhope Alabama!

What’s not to love about this 4-Bedroom Custom Brick Home in Rolling Oaks Fairhope Alabama?!

8678 Rolling Oaks Lane is a custom beauty! When the seller was first looking at this land, her breath was taken away by the view of all the rolling oak trees. It was very important to her to have privacy. With two boys in mind, she knew she was going to need to build a home she loved yet have plenty of room for those boys’ cars, boats, and motorcycles. (Don’t think, though, that she was right there with them riding those toys!) I asked the seller if schools were a factor and she responded “The Fairhope School System gave my children a good solid book education as well as a proper social education. They have fond memories of growing up and going to school in Fairhope.” Her favorite things about the home include looking out the windows; there are no close neighbors to see inside. She built the house with many windows as well as glass-front doors. She also built the house on a raised floating slab which enables a better view of the yard. The high ceilings are also important to her, and having plenty of storage in the house. The layout of the home has easily accommodated parties of 50 to 75 people with plenty of room for guests and plenty of parking. The guest house has been great to have for out of town company, as well as adult children home for the summer.  She said she never ran out of room for family, friends, and company. Being a dog lover, she also made sure her pets had plenty of room to roam without ever having to worry about anything happening to them.

Mrs. Seller has always had a love for the outdoors. I asked her where she spends most of her time and she said “I wanted a home where I could see the outdoors from two or more windows in the main living areas and my from my bedroom. I also wanted an open oversized carport where I could bring my groceries into the house in the rain without getting wet, yet I wanted to see the outdoors while getting in and out of my car instead of the inside of garage walls. I love my wooden deck where I sit in the morning and drink coffee in my nightgown.  No one sees me. I love my covered porch off my bedroom and walk out there every night to check out the moon and stars before bed.  If it is raining, I am still covered from the rain for my nightly bedtime view. In the winter I pick up sticks that fall in the yard and build fires in the fire pit. I often have friends over to sit around outside and throw sticks in the fire pit.” When she bought this home, the property was solid woods. There was no driveway up to the home site. One could only walk to the home site at first until she built a bridge that allowed access to the property. Once the road and bridge were built, she started on her dream home with a guest house.
If a buyer is looking for things to do near this property, there are way too many to name! But a few of the seller’s favorites are sailing at the Fairhope Yacht Club. It is only about 5 minutes away and you can sail into the horizon or enjoy a day at the pool or local restaurants. I’m not sure if you know this, but Fairhope is all about supporting the locals so as you drive around you will notice that most of the restaurants and shops are mom and pop owned. It is definitely one of the reasons why our tiny little town stands out. I asked the seller what will she miss most about leaving this home and she replied, “I have lived in this house for 21 years. I have enjoyed living here but need to down size. I know this home will bring many blessings to the next owner and cannot wait to see who it ends up being!”
