This historical colonial house is a MUST SEE! The owners have documentation supporting the date of construction of this home in 1929 by Frank Lockwood, who also designed the East and West Wing of our Alabama State Capital. This home was featured in magazines because of its excellent details. Located in the heart of Luverne on almost 2 acres with so much privacy, gives you feeling of being on a ranch. Notice the curb appeal as you drive up the long circular driveway with the pond. There is a sycamore tree in the back yard planted by the original owner to signify “Love will Always live here” and it is still there today. From the brick pavers on the front walkway to the cast iron boot scrapper at the front door, the details are beautiful. It also has both original fireplaces, a spacious foyer sitting area with a half bath downstairs. There are plantation shutters throughout the houses. 1st-formal dining room, formal living room, a study, a Florida Room with the original flooring shipped from Cuba up the river, open kitchen, and informal dining room. The original floor plan also has the laundry connections in the kitchen as well. There are also French doors leading to the outside on each side of the home, vaulted ceilings, crown molding though out the house along with original built ins cabinetry and shelving’s all on the first floor. There is a Victorian staircase leading up to the 2nd-where the 3/2 baths are located. The master’s bedroom has its own fireplace and a private balcony with a cast iron staircase leading to the ground below. The bathroom contains a ton of updated features to include a stand-up shower with glass casing. 3rd-stairs are located inside one of the bedrooms that opens to what could be a game room but also has a craft area, plenty of storage, the library, office, and a newly installed laundry room. The laundry was added to the 3rd floor but can also be on the 1st floor. Come see for yourself.
