HISTORIC VICTORIAN HOME Known as the Highland View Home boasts a desirable quiet setting on a road less traveled. Step into this 1870 Southern home that was built by the same family that built the famous Shorter mansion in Eufaula Alabama. The Highland Home is graced with 13 foot ceilings, ornate arched windows with plantation shutters, floor to ceiling pocket doors and 95% original windows. This nostalgic structure has been beautifully maintained.
The durable heart pine lumber that it was constructed from has proven hearty. The staircase which was constructed and shipped from Philadelphia is made of black walnut is purportedly the widest staircase in all of Eufaula. Each professionally decorated room has its original fireplace. All are now decorative other than the renovated family room which can be gas or wood. The kitchen is fully updated including double full size wall ovens and a 6 burner gas stove and storage galore!
The home has been protected from moisture with new ventilated access doors to the crawl space along with a plastic bearer and an automated humidity fan. The upstairs heat pump and condenser are both newer as well as the roof which is approximately 4 years old with a 35 year warranty.
Enjoy overlooking your pool area from the fully screened in sunroom. Palm trees shade the recently serviced 38 thousand gallon salt water pool while the rest of the yard is professionally landscaped with every season of blooms of all colors and fragrances including banana trees, yellow Florida jasmine, confederate rose bushes and the possibly the oldest magnolia tree in Eufaula and many more. The home is secured with a new alarm system including visual Nest doorbell.
This beautiful historic home sits in a charming small southern town called Eufaula Alabama. Lake Eufaula is known as the Bass Capitol of the world. Professional trophy bass fisherman flock to famous Lake Eufaula for the fishing experience of a lifetime! The town hosts pristine golf courses as well. Maybe you’ve recognized Eufaula Alabama in the movie Sweet Home Alabama where Reese Witherspoon goes home to visit her beloved southern home.
Settlers first arrived in the area, which was occupied by the Eufaula band of Creek Indians, in 1823 and named their settlement for the band. Just 47 years later The Highland View Home was brought to life.
