Ever wonder what it was like to have lived in a simpler, quieter time? Well, you can experience the next best possibility: living in a stately Victorian-era home with most modern comforts! This remarkable home rests within the heart of the Cottage Hill Historic District (Montgomery's oldest residential neighborhood), just up the hill from the downtown/riverfront areas - and minutes from Maxwell AFB. This restored residence harkens back to a time when folks enjoyed their front porches and neighbors. Yet, modern conveniences will please most residents - especially the large kitchen featuring Travertine flooring, butcher block counter tops, an apron sink, subway-style backsplash and a wonderfully modern JennAir combo stove. Adjacent breakfast room features lots of natural light while overlooking the back yard providing lots of stretching room, privacy and a nice patio area. A traditional dining room feeds into the spacious living room and a long, wide hallway flows from the front entryway on down to the kitchen. There are many period details, including architectural touches like stained glass, stylish wood trim, decorative medallions, gorgeous wood floors and an elegant, impressive wooden staircase. The master bedroom/bath are located downstairs opposite the "social" reaches of the home. Upstairs guest rooms ensure privacy for the main suite. You'll love the spacious study/office located just off the foyer, overlooking the marvelous front porch from where you can survey all that passes by! What a view! Don't miss the wired out-building/cottage that in previous lives served as detached storage, a workshop, artist's studio, even a studio apartment. Now it is an unfinished canvass open to your imagination and requirements. A future Airbnb perhaps? (Offered at no added value). Nearby development allows Cottage Hill to serve as both a slice of old-time Montgomery and a forward-looking community, intersecting with both the traditional and modern worlds!Come see for yourself!
