Seriously speechless! Alabama’s most expensive old house listing has changed. I search the years 1700-1940. And guess what?! It’s recently had a half a million dollar price cut! 🙂 Built in 1847 in Point Clear, Alabama. Located on 3.4 acres along the Mobile Bay. There are two guest cottages on the property. Four bedrooms, five bathrooms, and 5,300 square feet. $7,340,000

From the Zillow listing:


One of a kind, historic property in Point Clear, Alabama. This antebellum home, with two guest cottages, was built in 1847.
There is 198 feet of waterfront, with a wide sandy beach. The lot is 750 feet deep with a total of 3.4 acres, just ¼ mile from the Grand Hotel and Lakewood Golf Club.
Situated in a magnificent landscaped setting comprising hundreds of azaleas under huge, moss-draped live oaks and magnolias.
There is truly no other property like it on the sought-after Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay.
To those of you unfamiliar with Point Clear, there are only forty properties on the boardwalk that have an actual sandy beach. The rest of the area South of the Grand Hotel is almost all bulkheaded. Bestor Place is situated at the centre point of this most desirable beach.
Valuation note: The approximate value that Zillow places on this property is unrealistically low. This is as a result of their algorithmic-based analysis that takes no account of the beach-front features and the scarcity value of this property.
