Lending true Southern charm to a more serene way of living, daily life is peaceful along North Alabama’s County Road 33 with its thick canopy of trees, lush greenery and easy flowing creeks.

If you venture out along this road to Lexington, you will find yourself slowing down a bit to take a long look at one home in particular. You can’t help but notice the grandeur of this house and its complementary guest house sitting regally atop a beautifully landscaped hill. Its Southern charm is perfection.

Facing the east’s morning sunlight, six massive Tuscany pillars stand atop a large Southern Greek Revival style front porch supporting the house’s front roof line which includes three beautiful dormer windows for maximum interior lighting.

Alabama wild flowers

English gardens surround the house with crisply trimmed hedges that lend an air of elegance at every turn, giving the yard greenery all year long. Alabama red and pink roses fill the gardens adding a splash of color against the green of the cypresses. Beautifully mowed front and back yards carpet ten of the property’s twenty acres.

berry orchards

The property boasts two orchards … blueberries and the other has three varieties of thornless blackberries. All are income producing and very yummy. The property also has pear, elderberry and cherry fruit tress that provide summer fruits for those who enjoy canning and growing your own food. There are two areas ready for a summer garden where the soil has been improved for your best results.
