Paradise found! Located right in the protected middle of our delightful island on a tranquil dead end street, this home will change your latitude and your attitude and take your mood straight to Margaritaville. This much loved, one owner beauty has been meticulously maintained and upgraded since being built in 2004. These improvements include flooring, custom cabinetry, granite counter tops, stainless appliances, bathroom upgrades, exterior doors, etc., etc., etc. The refrigerator and dishwasher were replaced in 2017 and a new GAS stove was added this year. The HVAC was replaced in 2018. The interior is highlighted by an open and airy floor plan with split bedrooms, creating a private master suite wing with his and her walk in closets and a glamour bath featuring an over sized jetted soaking tub, large shower, separate water closet and double vanities. A spacious bonus room / bedroom is currently being used as a office, but offers multiple other options. Take a trip downstairs across the aesthetically pleasing custom pavers and you will find yourself in your own privacy fenced tropical oasis accentuated by the fabulous custom pool and hot tub, both gunite construction. The pool becomes heated on demand for the very occasional winter weather we experience here. A 15 X 25 detached building offers ample additional storage space or that man-cave, if required. All these amenities and located very close to all that Dauphin Island has to offer, including the bike/jogging path, the boat ramps, the ferry to Gulf Shores, Mardi Gras parades, heritage and arts and crafts events and much more. Property owners on Dauphin Island also have numerous designated beach areas available for their use across the Island. This parcel is located near the Audubon Bird Sanctuary and many species of migratory birds have flight paths directly over this property, affording some great bird watching opportunities.
Dauphin Island is the southernmost tip of Mobile County, spanning over 6 miles of coastline from east to west with views of Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico. The barrier island is home to Fort Gaines, the Dauphin Island Sea Lab, multiple ferries across Mobile Bay to Baldwin County's Fort Morgan, Sand Island Lighthouse and Dauphin Island Elementary School. The island is also famous for the Audubon Bird Sanctuary, featuring 164 acres of trails on the east end of the coast.
Due to unobstructed southern views, Dauphin Island has been deemed the Sunset Capital of Alabama and is considered a primarily residential island. Dauphin Island provides a quick escape for many locals thanks to the white, sandy beaches and small town atmosphere. It's also home to one of the area’s largest annual fishing tournaments, the Alabama Deep Sea Fishing Rodeo.
Mobile is the birthplace of Mardi Gras, so as you might expect, islanders like to celebrate the festivities each year by hosting a parade with floats, throws and live music. Dauphin Island kicks off the Mardi Gras events each year for the entire county, hosting the first parade of the season.
