Description

A piece of American architectural history is available for the first time in Montrose. Perched high on the Bluff overlooking Mobile Bay, this home was the dream and vision of famed architect E. Fay Jones and the Yarbrough family. Jones is the only Frank Lloyd Wright protégée to receive the Gold Medal from the American Institute of Architects and was declared one of the 10 most influential architects of the 20th century by the AIA. His Midcentury modern masterpiece at 23089 Main Street was built over the course of three years from imported Washington State Redwoods all milled onsite. The 3,200-square-foot waterfront residence has been owned by the same family since it was built and has been lovingly preserved to maintain Jones’ vision. Every piece of trim was custom-made for the house. Marked by amazing views, an abundance of natural light, and generous porches, the 3-bedroom, two and a half -bath home seamlessly blends into its surroundings. The deep and heavily wooded lot creates privacy and sense of awe when the natural oasis is revealed. A new cedar shake roof was installed two years ago and new carpet throughout. Come see for yourself why this home is truly a sight to behold. The best time to experience life at 23089 Main Street is in the evening when you can enjoy a view of the Mobile skyline and a magnificent sunset from almost every room. To learn more about the architect, E. Fay Jones and why this home is so unique, check out his most well-known masterpiece Thorncrown Chapel which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2020.
