What do you like about living at 215 Royal Lane in Fairhope, AL?

215_royal_lane_120

The things I love about Fairhope is the beautiful city with very friendly people. The community is such a family oriented place. The events that we have (such as Arts and Crafts) are great. I love the small town atmosphere with big hearts.

Our neighborhood is great for friendly neighbors, relaxing at the pool and close to anything you need.

We love to eat at Gambinos on the Bay, Rotollos and Ravenite.

Grocery stores are plentiful and near by. Publix, Walmart, and Piggly Wiggly all are very close.

When we bought the property we were drawn to the neighborhood, children and love being next door to the pool.

Fairhope has so much to offer for children and adults.
