Thirty Four Years Ago…

One worried historic preservationist (Marilyn Sullivan) and one old-house-loving REALTOR (Sandra Nickel) got together to brainstorm how to save one wonderful old house downtown (Brittain-Dennis cottage, now a fully restored and leased property in Old Alabama Town) and create positive buzz about Montgomery’s historic neighborhoods. As a result, the Montgomery Old House Expo was born.

Front guest suite has bonus dressing room and updated bath, while the well-appointed master bedroom has plenty of built-in shelves and two walk in closets. And, don’t let the term “cottage” make you think that there is anything lacking in this home, as you will see there is more storage space that most homes twice its size! Front courtyard is like having two additional living rooms, open air! Intimate covered dining area plus large central section allow for multiple seating, all shaded by a majestic 50+ year old Japanese maple tree.
