My Notes
Edit
This beautifully restored century old home features 3728+ of hardwood floors and 12' ceilings in the Oakleigh Garden District, 5 minutes from downtown, I-10, and the new Airbus facility. I tried to lovingly restore this beautiful old home to last another 100 years. Everything is done except some inside finished work, turn on the utilities and get the certificate of occupancy from the city. The home is expected to qualify for the historical designation and plaque. Improvements made in 2012 include: *new roof with timberline shingles *foundation re-worked and leveled *totally new plumbing and fixtures *totally new electrical wiring and fixtures *new central heat and air - 2 Lennox 18 SEER units with variable speed fan *landscaping (removed brush and dying trees, left dogwood and camellias, added native mature palms) *wood fence on three sides with remote controlled gate *magnificent wood floors throughout have been repaired and are ready to be sanded and finished *original plaster walls restored in main areas *remaining walls new sheetrock *insulation painstakingly blown in attic, underneath bottom floor, and in exterior walls *original trim and moldings retained where possible and remainder matched in style *exterior walls renovated with original heart-pine siding restored and painted, new wood added in back *new exterior paint -Sherwin Williams top of the line *all interior ceilings and walls painted in Sherwin Williams top of the line; main areas in what we believe were the original colors *2 new Rinnai tankless water heaters. *4 beautiful fireplaces with original mantels restored to original finish *new custom designed kitchen with hand crafted cabinets, antique farm sink, pantry and new stainless oven, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher *upstairs features master suite with separate dressing room and a custom shower with 3 shower heads and bench *restored original cast-iron clawfoot tubs in each bathroom *front porches with unique columns and rails completely re-built and restored to original The large downstairs bedroom has its own entry and I planned to use it as a "mother-in-law" suite for my elderly father. Magnificent entry foyer with stairway. 3 very large upstairs bedrooms, with "luggage room" that can be used as an office or additional dressing room, den upstairs designed for kitchenette so I could have coffee and drinks upstairs!, 2 upstairs porches. 2 antique hand-painted ceramic chandeliers original to house 7 other chandeliers, some new, some antique. upstairs laundry room downstairs mudroom could be used as a large walk-in pantry security camera system working ADT security system some antique furniture is available I had an unfortunate change in plans and the home is not quiet finished. All of the plumbing fixtures have been roughed-in and purchased. The appliances are still new in box. The power and gas are ready to the turned on. The floors are ready to be sanded and finished. The home can be move in ready in a month or so. I have invested more than the asking price. It is a wonderful bargain for a family who loves the historic district and convenience to downtown Mobile.

Zillow predicts Washington Square home values will decrease 3.8% next year, compared to a 1.3% increase for Mobile as a whole. Among Washington Square homes, this home is valued 243.3% more than the midpoint (median) home, but is valued 77% less per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Washington Square, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 106.8% higher than in Mobile, and 284.4% greater than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Washington Square home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Mobile.
