Preservation Personals: Former Speakeasy Seeks an Adventurous Owner
1866 Cottage-Style Home and Estate—Brierfield, Alabama
Happy birthday to me! This year, I turn 150.
Built in 1866, I am listed in the National Register of Historic Places and am one of very few cottage-style structures left in Alabama.
I was completely refurbished in 1965, and received a new roof and a fresh coat of paint in my original color scheme just last year. I operated as a speakeasy during Prohibition, and include tons of historical treats you can show off to your guests, from a 1920s-era pipe organ hidden behind a bookcase to stained glass windows.
My maple flooring is the same as it was in the 1860s, but you won’t be living in the 19th century if you buy me; I come with modern amenities, including an alarm system and air conditioning.
Last but not least, my lot covers a full 12 acres.
