Boater's Dream in Graham Creek Estates | Bay View Drive Foley AL

8/12/2020

Graham Creek Estates Foley, Alabama
Alabama’s beautiful Gulf Coast is a boater’s paradise, with water, water, everywhere! As our population expands and new visitors discover our area, public-access boat launches are becoming crowded, with limited parking and long wait times to actually get on the water. Residential neighborhoods with private launches are few and far between, and most have no vacant homesites available. Right now, though, you have the rare opportunity to not only own in one of these sought-after neighborhoods, but to also build the home of your dreams! This over-sized lot is heavily-wooded, with more than enough room to park your boat and/or RV. Did I mention that the location couldn’t be better – away from the traffic and crowds, but still close to everything? I know it sounds too good to be true, but I promise, it is!

                                                                                                                 Graham Creek Estates Listing               GCE In.jpg

Graham Creek Estates is a hidden gem, with custom homes on estate-sized lots.  First established in the 1980s, the quiet subdivision lies on the banks of Graham Bayou, giving deep water access to Wolf Bay and beyond. Some homes are waterfront, but all residents enjoy deeded access and use of the neighborhood boat launch, parking lot, and fishing pier. With less than one hundred homesites, Graham Creek Estates is, and will remain, a low-density neighborhood, perfect for families or those who just prefer a little extra privacy. Very few subdivisions in our area still allow homeowners to keep their boats and trailers at their homes, even if the size of the lot is adequate, but Graham Creek Estates is one that does. This Bay View Drive homesite is located just across from the launch, so you could be on the water in no time!

Graham Creek Estates is just minutes from world-class shopping at Tanger Outlets or one of the smaller, unique local businesses in Foley or nearby Gulf Shores and Orange Beach.

From great seafood to country cooking with a southern flair, restaurants are plentiful in this area, and most are just a short drive from your future home! If you’re looking for something to do when you aren’t on the water, OWA Entertainment Destination features 22 amusement park rides, including the scream-producing Rolling Thunder roller coaster. Graham Creek Nature Preserve is right next door, with hiking/biking trails, a disc golf course, and a public kayak launch. Our area’s biggest attractions are, of course, the sparkling white sand and warm turquoise water of our beautiful coastline. If you’re a beach lover, you can have your toes in the water and your chair in the sand in under 30 minutes.

The city is also rich in history, with records documenting Spanish and European explorers visiting the Seminole, Creek, Alabama, Tensaw, and Choctaw Indians as early as 1557. Daphne was officially settled in 1874, and served as the County Seat of Baldwin County from 1868 to 1901. Today, visitors and residents can visit the Daphne History Museum, housed in the 1858 Daphne Old Methodist Church, to learn all about it.
