NORTH HILL, ALABAMA SQUARE, DREAM HOME-TO-BE! If you love unique, historic old homes with lots of character in a Norman Rockwell-type neighborhood setting, you must see this property. The current owner has carefully and painstakingly stripped away superficial “improvements” made in recent decades (acoustic tiles that hid the original 10-foot ceilings, carpets that covered original hardwood floors, a partition wall that concealed the stunning staircase, etc.) to reveal the hidden beauty, solid original construction, and traditional craftsmanship of this Mediterranean Revival style home built in 1927. Anyone who has ever renovated an historic home (or has fantasized about doing so), will appreciate that the hard but necessary demo work has already been done. All that is left now is the fun part—finalizing the floorplan layouts and final design decisions that will meet your family’s particular needs and tastes. Even better, whoever buys this home will also get the amazing conceptual design plans and renderings already completed by the principal architect of the award-winning upscale Aragon community in downtown Pensacola. These conceptual plans have already been reviewed and approved by the Architectural Review Board which controls all work on historic homes in this neighborhood. Of course, you will be free to NOT use these plans, but they will undoubtedly serve as a great starting point for your own vision. You must see inside this home—and take in the view of the family-friendly, dog-friendly park from the front porch—to really appreciate what a great place it will be for you and your family. It even has a basement for your wine cellar and storm shelter! From here, it’s a short walk, bike ride, or drive to all downtown and East Hill attractions, events, stores and restaurants. Bring your very own dreams, and take this rare opportunity to build your perfect home in the perfect Pensacola neighborhood. COME TO OUR OPEN HOUSE, SATURDAY, MARCH 18TH FROM 12-3
