Imagine a French country-style country estate, an expansive and well-appointed family compound, a company headquarters/corporate retreat, a private yet conveniently located event venue. Now imagine all those possibilities in a great location in south Baldwin County, with Mobile Bay to the west and the Gulf beaches to the southeast. Now add an interstate highway just twenty miles to the north and a municipal airstrip just a short hop away, plus a protected nature preserve as a neighbor.

Sound too good to be true? Not at all! This 25-acre gem of a property, located on US Highway 98, east of Point Clear and west of Magnolia Springs, offers a new owner an abundance of opportunity. As it is, there is unlimited potential for the aspirational buyer to make this a forever home beyond anyone’s wildest dreams. The French Country-style main house is brimming with luxurious amenities, including a dream kitchen with the highest-end appliances, a triple tray-ceilinged dining room with ample room to seat sixteen or more, and an opulent master bedroom with a glass-walled sitting room overlooking the pool. Complete with separate guest quarters, possibly functioning as an in-law suite, an attached oversize triple garage, more storage than can be imagined, and every conceivable convenience, the custom window treatments, chandeliers, rugs, and furnishings are also included.

The main house, however,  is just the beginning. There is also a separate three-bedroom guest cottage and a “barndominium” – a spacious barn that can accommodate horses or other animals, multiple vehicles, or indoor games, with private living quarters above for family members or staff. In total, there are nine bedrooms and 7 1/2 baths in the three dwellings. But there’s still more. The freeform pool features a raised spa pool and convenient outdoor shower and restroom facilities, plus an outdoor bar and mini-kitchen. The sports-loving family would be in heaven here – the estate boasts a regulation-size football field complete with goalposts, a lighted tennis court and basketball court, and a stocked pond for fishing. The gentleman farmer can revel in the pecan grove and can indulge the need for many types of gardening. Great outdoor celebrations can take full advantage of the lighted and wired band stage as a social focal point. There is also pedestrian and equine access to the riding trails on the Alabama Land Trust property, which forms the grounds’ southeastern boundary.

The parcel is a jewel as a single-family home or an extended family compound and can readily be repurposed or redeveloped. Located in an un-zoned area of Baldwin County, it is eligible for conversion for commercial or multifamily use. The possibilities are limitless; some options include a wedding or event venue, a high-end resort-style RV community, a corporate retreat or training center, or even a sports camp or other athletics-based operation. The property could also be subdivided for additional spacious residential lots.

Bart Lewis and Ron Stewart with Kaiser Sotheby’s International are available to show or answer questions about the property.
