Down By The Bay...Part 2


I'm so happy that you came back today for PART 2 of DOWN BY THE BAY...as I said yesterday...we will looking at some bayside homes located in the heart of FAIRHOPE. Now as we look around town at all the different styles and sizes of these homes, please keep in mind that Mr.CC would be happy to sell you one of these beauties...yes Mr.CC is a real estate broker and he does a great deal of business here on the bay. Here is a little info about Fairhope that I would like to share with you.

More and more people are moving to Fairhope Alabama. It is a charming small town, a great location for the family. The population have increased with more than 29% from 2000 to 2007.


Those interested in Fairhope AL Real Estate should also know that downtown Fairhope is the location of many music festivals, art walks, and fine dining restaurants where people greet one another with that southern, friendly charm.

Voted the top 10 most romantic escapes by Coastal Living Magazine, Fairhope is truly a desirable community in which to relocate or to retire.

Recently called "one of the country's best kept surprises" in a 2007 edition of Coastal Living magazine, Fairhope, Alabama was founded in 1894 as a single tax colony by a group of economists. Fairhope, Alabama is one of two single tax colonies remaining in the United States. The purpose of forming this new colony was to establish a model colony free from all forms of private monopoly. This single tax colony still exists today to retain the value of the land for the community.

So now that you have all the nitty gritty about this quaint liitle town...let's get this tour moving!!!!
                                        Hope y'all come back...real soon,
                                                           Linda

I love Fairhope. The arts district is well-laid out and every shop is just charming. My brother took me sight-seeing there awhile back. I love that little pier. I thought back then what a neat place to live. Your pics just confirm that once again.

Take good care,

Karen

I love the first couple of little cottages. Hopefully, this community won't grow too quickly and lose its charm. La
