Spanish Fort Estates Area Insight

    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.
