About This Property

Located on 10+ac, within a mile of downtown Marion, AL, we offer 2 Antebellum homes secured behind a Wrought Iron fence, a cottage perfect for a grounds keeper, and 2 vacant residential lots. One Antebellum, MYRTLE HILL, C.1840, built by John Huntington a silversmith from North Carolina, has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Entering the front through it’s 4 stunning Doric Columns, past a most striking stairway, we find the formal Living and Dining Rooms. The lovely mantels and beautiful chandeliers found here are offered throughout these homes. The 3315 sq.ft. home features 4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths and Breakfast joining the Kitchen. The back sitting porch overlooks azaleas, hydrangeas, camellias and a water feature that includes a water fall. In 1907, it was purchased by Mr. and Mrs. William Caffee, who’s daughter Ruby named the home for the Crepe Myrtles blooming at the time. Ruby lived in the home until age 95, when it was sold to the Lewis family who restored it to become Myrtle Hill Bed and Breakfast & Gardens in 1994. Myrtle Hill remained in the Lewis family until purchase by it’s current owners. Our next Antebellum is BELLE TERRACE, C.1838, also built by the Huntingtons. Upon front entry, there’s a lovely stairway and two flanking Parlors. It’s 3652 sq.ft. includes 4 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths, large Kitchen, Breakfast, and Formal Dining. There’s an unbelievable Sunroom and Screened and Open Porches, where the back acreage, gardens, and large Koi pond can all be viewed. The back deck leads to the CARRIAGE HOUSE with car storage, a private 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath apartment upstairs, and an attached Green House. The final home offered includes 2 Bedrooms and 1 Bath, with the intended use as a possible CARETAKER’S COTTAGE for the gated homes. With all this property has to offer, it’s well suited for multi-families looking for a quiet, home away from home, could be used as a Bed-N-Breakfast again, or perfect for an Entertainment and Wedding Venue!!
