Properties for Sale in Battles Wharf, Fairhope, AL

Battles Wharf is a lovely waterfront community along the eastern coast of Mobile Bay in Fairhope, Alabama.


Its history dates back to the early 1800s when the area was used as a trading post for local farmers and fishermen. After the Battles family purchased a large portion of the property, it became known as “Battles.” It grew into a bustling hub of commerce, with steamboats and schooners regularly stopping at the pier to load and unload cargo. Today, it is a popular summer retreat for tourists and locals, offering a unique blend of old-world charm and modern amenities. It features cottage-style houses at the end of a cul de sac, giving utmost privacy. There is still a warm neighborhood element as the properties are connected by a public footpath that serves as a thoroughfare. This picturesque community presents breathtaking waterfront views with a serene atmosphere providing a peaceful escape from the fast-paced city life.

COASTAL LIVING: Residences are at the water’s edge, and enjoy year-round water views and salty breezes. Homeowners can stroll along the harbor and watch sailboats and yachts glide by on the bay. For those who prefer a more active experience, there are plenty of opportunities for water sports, such as kayaking, paddle boarding, and fishing. The nearby Fairhope Municipal Pier also provides an excellent spot for crabbing and appreciating the sunset over the water. The fresh air, sunny weather, and calming sound of waves make it a perfect place to relax and recharge.

DISTINCT HOUSES: Each house in Battles Wharf house has a story. They have a wood-frame cottage-style design with tall windows and broad porches.

Residents can take pride in the unique architectural style of their houses and the history they represent and enjoy a potential appreciation in value.
