Uh oh. Someone got a little too "creative" on the exterior colors -- but restoring the right amount of dignity to this stately home shouldn't take too much time or money. Near Montogomery AL -- which is a good thing?!?! Here's what they say: "Unbelievable entryway with winding staircase and stained glass focal point. Sparkling chandeliers and imposing columned mantels both inside and out! Eight decorative mantels throughout living and sleeping areas. Large spacious bedrooms with 12-foot ceilings. Deep South "Gone with the Wind" feel; they don't make them like this anymore. Butler's pantry, bay window in formal dining area with impressive columned fireplace mantel. 4 bedrooms with additional room with extensive shelving could be downstairs bedroom or library depending on your preference. Exercise room. Old Victorian wrought iron fencing; 2 balconies; wraparound columned porch; 2 private porches; separate 2-car garage. Access to cable and fiber-optic high speed internet. So many rooms to use as you like!" With a little spit and polish and a tad of good taste this could be quite a handsome home.
