Own a piece of Alabama’s history! Kenworthy Hall, aka Carlisle-Martin House is located in Marion, Alabama. Designed by famed architect Richard Upjohn of New York and built in 1858 for Edward Kenworthy-Carlisle. The house is one of the best-preserved examples of Italian Villa style architecture and was added as a National Historic Landmark in 2004. Constructed to allow maximum comfort with cross halls to provide much needed cooling breezes for summer days. The original kitchen was built behind the house and connected by a crosswalk. The house is a brick structure including all interior walls roughly 16″ thick, 3 separate stairways, 3 wide halls, 7 major rooms on the main level, 6 major rooms on the 2nd floor, a floored attic and tower rooms consisting of a 3rd floor servant’s room and a 4th floor observatory flanked with windows on all sides. The home is located on 19 +/- acres and is a functioning Arabian horse farm with a 10 stall horse barn. This property has tremendous potential, not only as a private residence, but also as an event venue, bed and breakfast or a corporate retreat center. Vaiden airport nearby.
