Fixer Upper Bungalow in Mobile, AL Under $40K
This cute bungalow is located in the Maysville neighborhood of Mobile, Alabama. The Maysville Historic District encompasses 1121 properties located southwest of downtown. The neighborhood has long been a working class community with many late 1890s and early 1900s bungalows and cottages like this house (realtor’s build date of 1985 is ridiculous). Some homes have modest Victorian influences.
The larger, more decorated houses were built in the northeastern portion of the neighborhood. In the early 20th century through the World War II era, the Port of Mobile and its shipyards became a focus of Mobile’s economy, and Mayville’s population grew in response with craftsman bungalows and foursquare houses becoming the popular styles of the day.
