    I was expecting to see a lot less house for so little money. It’s charming, and doesn’t look like it would need much work to make it perfect! (Although adding a half-bath would probably be a good idea.)

    Oh My Goodness. Marion, Alabama grows more interesting with each house Kelly finds for us there. Is it a minor artist colony? The most recent, and still available, offering was the house at 222 Clements St. I hope that former Marion resident Marshall Cunningham, as is his habit, sees this listing and tells us some more about it.

    Marshall, are there any vegetarian restaurants in Marion??? I’m assessing my ability to subsist solely on hush puppies and cole slaw.

      Thank you for noticing my connections to Marion , where I taught Latin and French and English in the jr. high and high schools. This house is out of town and will put you right on the road to shopping and eating in Tuscaloosa, with every type or restaurant a college town can stand. Locally, we do have a sit-down quiet restaurant next to our antique shop where you can order steaks from the grill or all veggies. This house has been well maintained. The town is getting a face-lift. If you want country living, this is the place. There are only about 9,000 people in the county. There is a four year girls’ college that dates to Antebellum Alabama and also a 2 year Jr. College that was an Antebellum military college. The prices here are in line with local going rates. Your yearly taxes on houses and land are of no significance. I pay about $245 per year ( not per month) for a house and 7 1/2 acres. I also think you would enjoy the farmers’ markets where you can buy fresh vegetables and fruits directly from the men and women who set up at the open air shed.

        Dear Mr. Marshel Cunningham, the area sounds delightful! Merci! I also must echo some of our other OHD-ites (?), that this is a lovely little gem, a darn steal, and boasts splendid furnishings! The picket fence is also a bonus!

    What a beautiful House! The lines are simple and it has that Federal classicism inside. In fact, it really feels Federal to me. Could the build date be off or is it just someone liked the “Good Old Days” in housing? Show me this house in 7 years when I retire and it is game on.

    This is absolutely charming.

  6. I rarely comment since y’all generally say everything for me but this place pulled on my heartstrings. The simple elegance of the parlor and dining room are exceptional. Other than some cosmetic work, upgrade the bath, and a few tweaks in the kitchen, this place is perfect. Love the kitchen sink. Marion, AL is 3.5 hours from Atlanta. This would make an amazing weekend place. What a family would spend on a one week vacation at the beach would make almost make the annual mortgage payments on this place.

    Simply charming and very appealing. Love the simple, clean lines of the house, inside and out. And the outbuildings add a sense of character and timelessness.
