    Spanish Fort Estates Subdivision
    Spanish Fort Estates sits atop the hill as you come into the sweet little town of Spanish Fort. The neighborhood sets itself apart from other neighborhoods with the character, charm, and history that lies beneath it. Driving through the neighborhood you will see markers from the American Civil War and the Battle of Spanish Fort. Reading each one is like going back in a time capsule.

    As far as the homes in the neighborhood, not one looks the same, which sets it apart from the phrase "cookie cutter." Homes range from being built in 1960 to today. There are even homes on the bluff that overlook the bay if you wish for waterfront property. The neighborhood sits minutes away from an amazing elementary school that ranks really high on the school ranking chart in Alabama. The neighborhood is central to shopping, the interstate, eateries, and everything that you could need is within quick access..

    The first thing that strikes you about Spanish Fort Estates are the hills, the ups and downs, the ravines, gulleys and sloughs. Bluffs overlooking the Delta, a convergence of five rivers that flow into Mobile Bay. Next, you start noticing the street names, both grand (Spanish Main) and quirky (Yankee Trove) and historic (Confederate Drive).

    From the 1960s until the mid-2000s, the Fuller Bros. developed this chunk of land between Hwy. 31, the bay and Hwy. 225. And it sits atop the very land where the Battle of Spanish Fort took place in the spring of 1865. In yards along Artillery Range, you will see the remnants of the Confederate Redoubt. In the backyard of a home on General Gibson there remains a cannon bunker -- basically a large round hole surrounded levee-like earthworks.You may even see a neighbor with a metal detector looking for buckshot in the front yard.

    Now, Spanish Fort Estates offers a variety of housing from the low $100,000 to more than $600,000. You'll find older homes that have been given updates and newer construction. Extremely convenient to Interstate 10 or the Causeway across Mobile Bay to the metro area, homes in the Estates typically have larger (1/2 to 3/4 acre) lots with mature trees. Because of the development -- and the age -- of the neighborhood, there is no formal home owners' association nor are there dues. But an admirable ad hoc group asks residents to contribute $25 a year to maintain the various entrances. Spanish Fort Estates feeds to Spanish Fort Elementary, middle and high school.
