Sweeping views of nature await visitors of this custom-built, 4,405-square-foot home in the newly developed, 97-acre North Hills at Fairhope community. The unspoiled view is sure to remain as the neighborhood is well-insulated from future development, surrounded by Auburn University’s Research Center to the west, a private estate to the east and a wetlands buffer to the north.  

Located atop a rolling hillside, the two-story home’s dramatic facade of red brick and dark siding complement its surroundings of pines and farms. The exterior includes thoughtfully selected materials, all designed to look better with age. Drawing the eye from street to front door is the grand promenade, nestled amid the lush lawn and master landscaping.  

The bright and cheery foyer embraces newcomers, while the barrel-arched hallway beckons onward to the living room, pictured top.

Refinement continues inside, evidenced by the foyer’s bright, nature-inspired color palette and curated embellishments. From here, there is no wrong direction in which to start exploring the four bedroom, four-and-a-half bathroom estate, as each path reveals a clearly delineated, designed-to-be-lived-in space. 

Rooms flow organically, with some even blurring the lines between indoors and out, such as the family room with its metal-framed sliding doors, which open onto the screened porch. And there is no shortage of picturesque vantage points, whether eyeing the community’s sparkling lake from the second-story landing or admiring ancient oaks from the robust outdoor kitchen.

MB’s 2020 Inspiration Home is sure to inspire. We hope to see you there!

The kitchen, an amalgamation of wood, metal, stone and fabric, is anchored by a generously portioned marble countertop, buttressed by bench seating.
