Imagine living in the heart of Fairhope's iconic Fruit & Nut neighborhood, in this inviting, updated cottage, surrounded by beautiful trees and the songs of birds instead of traffic. You walk to the bay in five minutes, or walk to downtown in about ten. The stress of the city fades away. Homes of varying sizes and styles, close enough to know your neighbors, white picket fences, huge shade trees, and just the right amount of quirky. Fruit & Nut has a vibrancy all its own, and this 2/2 cottage ensconces you in the heart of it all. Hardwood floors throughout (tile in bathrooms), plantation shutters, a nicely-treed corner lot, cozy, and welcoming. Upgrades by the owners include a new second bathroom, interior paint throughout, a new A/C system, dishwasher, microwave, gutters, removal of pine trees, drywall, granite countertops, electrical panel, landscaping, and new roof. 258 Equity is perfect for a weekend retreat, buyers desiring to relocate to the Fruit & Nut District for an all-in price under $500,000, and investors (the property has a strong rental history). Some of the furnishings can convey to the buyer. The private, side patio is a perfect place to gather around a fire pit on cool nights or enjoy outdoor dining under an umbrella on summer days. Opportunities to buy properties in the Fruit & Nut District, with character and charm, well maintained and move-in ready, at this price (with some lots selling in the same range), do not come along very often. Make 258 Equity your new home!
