Anniston, AL   Offered for sale at $850,000

Following a long, private drive, one sees on the hillside a very stately Georgian styled home. Located on 15 acres of gardens with numerous flowering trees, boxwoods, azaleas, shrubs, flowers, and woods, this very historic home which was built for Anniston’s Founder, Samuel Noble, in 1882, was opened for the first time as a bed & breakfast in late 2016. The Inn was featured in Alabama Magazine in its May 2018 issue with 8 pages of pictures and history,. The owners have opened the home to guests as a bed and breakfast on a part-time basis when not traveling or its not being used for their own family gatherings. With all 5 star reviews on Trip Advisor, this home is now ready to be open on a full-time basis for its future owners, offering greater revenue.....the potential is in place! An additional 2 bedroom Guest Cottage with 4 acres is optional, priced at $160,000.
