    Property Details

    Beautiful 150 year old home in the popular Oakleigh Garden District! This historic home is over 150 years old and was built by Henry F. Wilson, a prominent cotton factor, in April of 1869. Mr. Wilson purchased 2 lots at the corner of Palmetto & Chatom streets directly across from Washington Square, the beautiful 1850's neighborhood park in the Oakleigh Garden District. The local Mobile daily paper quoted Mr. Wilson as saying I had the home built with 6 bedroom and 6 porches for my young bride. The article described Mr. Wilson as an energetic and go ahead young man and went on to describe his new home as excelling in it's roominess and thorough completeness as the finest framed residence in the city. Today the home has been fully restored to it's original splendor with 5 bedrooms, 4 upstairs and 1 downstairs, with 4 1/2 baths. Your master can be up or downstairs! One of the original large bedrooms has been converted to a spacious master bath with a 7' claw foot tub, shower, his and hers walk in closets, double vanities and a sitting area too! The living room, dining room, and den are large rooms with soaring 14' ceilings, exceptional crown moldings, and detailed woodwork of the era in which it was built. These rooms also feature Italian marble mantles and antique chandeliers that were converted from gas lamps to electric. The home has gorgeous hardwood and tile flooring throughout! The large exceptional renovated kitchen is well appointed with granite countertops, a 5 chair dining and bar island, a separate breakfast nook, and all new SS appliances. The central HVAC units are all zoned for efficiency and lifestyle needs for the different areas of the home. The electrical power to the home is supplied underground designed and sized by AL Power for the home. The double lot yard is graced with oak, palm, cedar, and dogwood trees. The yard also features Japanese tulips, Chinese Rose trees, and 8 varieties of camellias and azaleas. Flowers of some nature bloom year round in this spectacular yard! 6 flower beds allow a rich seasonal display of color and cut flowers for the home. Throwing a grand party will be a breeze here! The homes spacious and serene front porch overlooks the gorgeous 1850's oak tree filled historic Washington Square Park where the neighborhood hosts many musical & holiday events and weddings too! You will also find many people running, walking their dogs, and children running & playing near the large fountain and the trademark iron deer. So much beauty all around! The neighborhood bar & grill, Callaghan's, was just voted best bar in the south by Garden & Gun Magazine. This fabulous establishment is a bike ride away and often features local musicians. This historic and friendly neighborhood is alive and well! Make your appointment today to see this stunning home and walk right into Mobile's amazing history.
