    Property Details

    Towering above the oak laden community of Historic DeTonti Square, the McCoy-Donlon estate offers a glimpse into cherished Mobile history within this fully restored landmark. Built in 1873, this historic two-story brick Italianate inspired Federal townhome with double front porches of wrought iron lace sits on a large lot. Patinated flooring, ornate molding, and embossed brass hardware are seen throughout, harkening to a time of prideful construction, while soaring ceilings, eight foot doorways, and oversized windows breathe natural light into the estate. The downstairs boats a front parlor and a second parlor/library separated by ten-foot pocket doors and each featuring gas log fireplaces with exquisite marble mantles. The artistically detailed dining room is entered through the grand foyer. The open concept kitchen and keeping room/den connects with the formal dining room via the large butler's pantry offering an entertainer's paradise. Three large bedrooms are found upstairs with two separate office spaces, 4.2 baths and countless sitting areas on both levels create an idyllic layout for entertainers or those looking to utilize the property's B-1 zoning. Floor-to-ceiling windows adorn the main level breezeway, gifting crisp views of the courtyard below and shining an abundance of natural light onto the mix of painted and exposed Mobile brick walls, once the exterior of the home. An enclosed sunroom, adjacent greenhouse and raised outdoor deck create enchanting spaces, while a whole home generator provides peace of mind. Hand crafted iron work adorns the exterior, encapsulating the property in old-world charm rarely found today. A power-gated entry adds privacy, while modern wiring, plumbing and HVAC were reconfigured upon restoration. This is truly a property that has to be seen to believe, historic property lovers will immediately feel at home within the soaring walls and articulated details that embody this true Mobile landmark. Some furnishings may be available.
