REMARKS:

One of the South’s finest Greek Revival Mansions, Palmetto Hall - a truly extraordinary property offered for sale! Palmetto Hall, located in the heart of Spring Hill in Mobile, AL dates back to c. 1846. It was built by Charlestonian, John Dawson as a replica of his family home on the Battery in Charleston. The property was given the name Palmetto Hall to pay homage to the state flower of South Carolina. It is on the market for sale for the first time in almost 58 years. Palmetto Hall is an excellent example of antebellum Greek Revival architecture and has been featured in many national publications & in the book, "A Treasury of Great American Houses." The property is over 8500 sq. feet and has 5 bedrooms and 6.5 baths. You enter onto 3.8 acres of property through handsome wrought iron gates on a circular drive leading to the stunning façade with a deep portico with large Tuscan columns below and double porch above with balustrades supported by fluted Doric columns. The ground floor is stucco over masonry and the top floor is wood construction. An impressive entry, a two-story Foyer, is flanked by two sets of Corinthian columns at each end of the Foyer and a sweeping cantilevered staircase with a deeply coved ceiling above bordered by an octagonal shape and exquisitely molded cornice highlighted by a remarkable chandelier. Palmetto Hall has exceptionally spacious rooms, incredible marble mantels throughout, stunning hardwood floors, wonderful friezes & plaster work, amazing millwork, fabulous fitting & hardware, & breathtaking antique chandeliers. The Ballroom which provides a glorious entertaining space could also be used as a downstairs master bedroom (to be a 6th bedroom). A lovely, long loggia with inlaid marble floors connects the Ballroom to the Dining room & Foyer & floods the back of the house with natural light while providing splendid views over the extensive grounds, patio, and pool.
