Noble-Woodruff House

1301 Booger Hollow Rd, Anniston, AL 36207, USA
$850,000

Description

This wonderful original home of Samuel Noble, Anniston, Alabama’s Founder sits stately on a hillside as one travels up the driveway of this home of 5-19 acres. The acreage has woods for hiking and exploring, a pond for fishing, a playhouse for children to enjoy, and an older, yet playable tennis court. The gardens with many large Magnolia trees, many Dogwoods, Crepe Myrtle, several Cherry trees, azaleas, and numerous shrubs and flowers…..truly a gardener and a nature lover’s delight.

Described as “A Storybook House”, the owners decided with all of its history it would be good to share the home by opening it up to the public as a part time bed and breakfast……part time due to its being closed for family functions for all holidays and closed as well due to the owners’ travels. When open as Springwood Inn, named for the spring that runs down the mountainside through the woods and culminating with a small waterfall that then flows into the pond on property, the inn has received many accolades of praise as well as all five star reviews on Trip Advisor. Therefore, the home can be used as a private estate as it was for many years, up until two years ago, or with all the paperwork and licensing in place, can continue being run as a bed & breakfast with much opportunity and potential to develop a much stronger business.

Besides the bedrooms and bathrooms upstairs of the home, there a large and beautifully paneled Upstairs Library. Detailed and extremely elegant mouldings are found throughout the home as well as several original chandeliers, and architectural embellishments. The formal part of the home features a large Dining Room with bay window and fireplace. The Living Room and the Alabama Room are both off the open Foyer and each room has floor to ceiling windows with etched glass transoms. There is a small room opening to the expansive Front Porch with a tall window opening to the porch, making for a great indoor-outdoor Bar. Further down the Foyer is a beautifully appointed Powder Room with original oval sink and wonderfully original marble flooring. From there begins the Informal part of the home with Breakfast Room, Updated Kitchen, extra room for office or playroom, great-sized Laundry with endless cabinets, a half bath off of this, and lastly, but certainly very beautiful and important sits the “Woods Room”, completely made of old barn siding with a large window looking out to the woods, and a high vaulted ceiling made of beams and the same bar sided wood. It’s wonderful and a favorite of many.

Anniston, Alabama is known for its bike paths, one that connects to Georgia’s and goes all the way to Atlanta whereas another is strictly for skilled mountain bikers. Mt. Cheaha, Alabama’s highest mountain is on the outskirts of town and is seen from the long and wide front porch of this home. Two first class museums and a botanical garden are a treat for residents and visitors alike. The Civil Rights markings of where the Freedom Riders bus was burned sits at both the greyhound bus station in town where the bus’s tires were slashed, but also the actual site where the burning took place….this has been designated as a National Monument and is quite significant for the town of Anniston. Restaurants and shopping abound for all.

The home itself features also a full basement with pool table and workshop that go into the garage. An upstairs hallway has a door that has steps leading to a full attic with a huge amount of space. One area of the attic has been made into a small apartment with sitting room, bedroom, and bathroom. On the further part of the 5 acres sits an original 1882 two bedroom, one bath cottage with living room with a fireplace, a full kitchen, laundry room and both front and back porches. The cottage may be purchased separately with an additional 14 acres for $200,000 with the purchase of the main home.

It would be hard to be disappointed in this exceptionally wonderful home. Call today, come see this home, decide to purchase it, and make this home of your dreams become a reality for your own self!
