About This Old House

Exquisitely restored 1909 Craftsman historic home in Northport, AL. Northport is located just across the river from Tuscaloosa, AL and the University of Alabama. It is a quaint little village that has Kentuck Arts Center, restaurants, and shops all one block away from this home. This home was originally owned by Dr. Samuel T. Hardin and his wife Susie Deason Hardin (fondly known as “mammy”) from 1909 – 1972. They raised 3 children in the home. Doc Hardin was the local doctor, coroner, and pharmacist. He had his pharmacy and medical practice in the “village”. Granddaughter, Sara Wells, inherited the home but sold it in 1973. Sara, along with her husband, repurchased the home in 2004 and moved from Virginia to restore the property to original splendor. An extensive 2 year renovation took place replacing all plumbing, electrical, gas lines, windows (with the exception of two front windows), insulation, roof, HVAC, and stripping original doors, mantels, baseboards, pocket doors, along with adding 1100 sq ft. The original section along with the addition has 12ft ceilings, 12″ baseboards, and 71/2″ crown molding throughout. The original wallpaper was taken off and the wood walls and ceilings were exposed. The original light fixtures in the dining and living room were rewired. The home has 4 original fireplaces/mantels. It also boasts a 45ft long hallway that lends itself to entertaining. The original lion-head footed tub was uncovered in the backyard and restored. The large front and back porch areas are great for entertaining and rocking! The home sits on a third of an acre and has a two story workshop and garden in the back yard. Must see to appreciate this great gem!
