Tucked away in a private spread among the lush Alabama foliage, this charming traditional cottage is just a short walk from the heart of Crestline Village, and it’s for sale. So you can have all of the privacy of a mountainside cottage with all of the amenities of quaint and bustling Crestline Village. Imagine taking an invigorating morning stroll along the village’s sidewalk system, grabbing a coffee and a bagel from Crestline Bagel, then taking a short walk and you’re home, where you can enjoy your breakfast and morning cup of joe on the sprawling back porch among the towering trees.

Classic architecture defines this charming cottage and offers undeniable curb appeal.

Lush, towering trees encircle the three-tiered back deck, providing shade and privacy. It is the perfect spot for grilling and entertaining.

The home’s façade is handsome and timeless. Enter, and you’re met with a calming neutral palette accented by crisp white crown molding and window frames. The entryway leads to a sprawling great room, where natural light floods the space through a wall of large windows. Built-in bookshelves flank a sizable wood-burning fireplace, which is perfect for fireside chats or reading books in the winter. “The family room is large,” says LAH Real Estate Mountain Brook Realtor Bea Healey. “Everyone can pile in the family room with popcorn and a fire in the fireplace for movie night.”

The family room spills into the home’s elegant dining room, which is equal parts laid-back and refined, a space that can suit both formal gatherings and casual affairs. The dining room connects to the kitchen, which leads onto the home’s large, three-tiered back porch. The fenced-in backyard is enclosed in greenery, offering a private experience for al fresco afternoons.

Beautiful hardwood floors, a fresh color palette and ample natural light lay the groundwork for a fabulous living space.

Recessed adjustable lighting puts artwork in the limelight in this living room, which flows into the kitchen and dining room.

Windows wrap this dining room in light, bringing the outdoors in.

The adorable kitchen features a pot rack on the ceiling and a wine rack above the fridge for smart storage. The door leads to the fabulous patio.

Take your ingredients straight from the kitchen to the grilling station on this glorious shaded back deck.

The master suite not only features a fabulous master bath with jacuzzi, but also an attached light-filled room that could serve as an office, nursery or yoga studio. Both of these en-suite rooms boast large circular windows, a striking architectural hallmark of the home. A roomy walk-in closet with customizable shelving completes the master suite. The home’s gleaming hardwood floors flow into the two additional bedrooms, one of which features a doorway onto the back porch.

The spacious master bedroom features a wall of windows that fills the room with natural light by day, as well as an en-suite extra room.

The master bedroom’s extra room can serve as a nursery for a newborn, a yoga studio for the devoted yogi, an art studio for an artist or a luxurious reading nook or TV room.

The master bath features a jacuzzi, his-and-hers vanity, spacious shower and private water closet.

The walk-in closet has fabulous, customizable shelving and cabinetry for organized wardrobe storage.

With its access to the back deck and en-suite bathroom, this bedroom is great for guests.

Descend the staircase, and there’s a small room to your right that can serve as an exercise room, private office, man cave or crafts closet. The rest of the downstairs space is truly impressive. “It’s a gigantic, light-filled basement with hardwood flooring and ample storage space,” says LAH realtor Amy Ager. “It’s great for young children as a playroom or as a work space or simply another living space.” It connects to the two-car garage, a rarity in Crestline, and double doors lead onto the motor court, which offers ample parking space.

This sprawling lower-level isn’t your average “basement.” Bathed in natural light, its abundant storage, gorgeous hardwoods and half bath make it a versatile living space.

This small room in the basement can be used as an exercise room, storage space, office, man cave, arts and crafts station, music studio — just about anything you can imagine!

With a two-car garage and sizable motor court, this home’s parking space is phenomenal. A back door leads into the spacious basement.

“I love the white picket fence! I also love the coziness of this house,” says Bea.

“What sets this home apart is the ease and convenience of being so close to the heart of Crestline Village, while also offering a true sense of privacy that is not common in most Crestline homes,” says Amy. “And it has a garage and great parking, which is also hard to come by in Crestline.”
