    Description

    Designed by architect George B. Rogers, this elegant historic home has been lovingly restored and updated for today's modern lifestyle. Recently updated, the large kitchen is comfortably able to host large and small gatherings. Known as the Burgess-Maschmeyer Mansion this circa 1906 home was built in the French Renaissance Revival style and is located in the Oakleigh Garden Historic District. This home sits on a well maintained 1.5+/- acres with two gated entries; one off of Government St as well as a private rear entry from Church St. The original carriage house is also located at the back of the property. The outside structure was built with grey brick, columns of Indiana limestone, and a Spanish style roof. The sweeping front porch is tiled with Venetian mosaic tile. A few of the more notable architectural features inside of this home are the elaborately designed moldings, the grand staircase, and the built in mahogany china cabinets. The large dining room is known for its unique oval shape and hand-painted murals painted by artist Thil Wilbergand. One of only two known surviving historic estates in Mobile to have a series of period rooms; the living room is Louis XVI, the staircase is American Colonial, and the entry hall is English. Listed as historically significant by the Mobile Historic Development Commission this home has many more striking particulars that beg to be seen in person. What an extraordinary opportunity to own one of only a few of Mobile's imposing historic estate homes lining Government Street! All updates per the seller. Listing company makes no representation as to accuracy of square footage.
