Greg Tankersley Home – Old Cloverdale

Kev and I had the pleasure of visiting a really fantastic house in the Old Cloverdale neighborhood of Montgomery (Alabama) recently, and I thought I’d share the photos we took of it here on our blog today.

Old Cloverdale is just down the interstate from us (about 15 miles) and the houses there are all so unique and full of character!

(Year built: 1930  *  Sq Ft: 2,270  *   4 bdrm/2 bath   *   Listing)

(Year built: 1914  *  Sq Ft: 2,630  *   3 bdrm/3 bath   *   Listing)

(Year built: 1927  *  Sq Ft: 2,486  *   3 bdrm/2 bath   *   Listing)

The house we visited last week is owned by an architect named Greg Tankersley…

…whose firm (McAlpine-Tankersley) has had the pleasure of designing tons of beautiful homes all around the globe…

I’ve “known” Greg through Twitter for quite a while now, so it was really fun to finally meet him (and his house!) in person. Here are some photos we took of his house that day. Inside the front door…



First floor hall…

Guest bedroom…

Guest bathroom…



Left side of master closet…

(The right side looks identical to the left side and that space literally took my breath away!)

Master bathroom…

You can enter/exit the shower from the left or the right, and that mirror hanging in front of the glass is double-sided so you can use it from the shower side too and it doesn’t fog up…

We love touring houses and seeing the inside of this one was certainly a treat. Thanks again, Greg!

PS- Greg’s house is actually on the market right now for $499,000 and if you’re interested, you can find more information about it HERE.

And the winner of the $25 Lush gift card is…

Congratulations, Vicki! I’ll be in touch with you shortly!

    Simply gorgeous! Did the price drop $100,000? Went to link to learn more about the house and it is listed as $599,000 there. Thanks for sharing pictures!

    Thank you for posting the tour of Baldwin House. I had the pleasure of living in Prattville for about 10 months several years ago while my husband was in school at Maxwell. We lived in the biggest, ugliest house on Huie St. and I spent many days enviously driving around the older sections of Montgomery, looking at the beautiful old homes. One of these days, we will own a grand, old house but for now I have to settle for looking at pictures and dreaming. Thank you for the eye candy!

    I love Cloverdale! When I worked in Montgomery and would go to visit friends I always took the long way so I could look at the houses. I considered it “research” since I worked at the historical commission!

    I’ve followed McAlpine-Tankersley for a while too so it’s neat to see Greg’s house here – and it’s beautiful!! The stairways and all of the details are really stunning. Someone is going to be buying a gorgeous home. Thanks for sharing.

    This is a beautiful house that is still on the market. We live around the block and still cannot believe it hasn’t sold! McAlpine’s old house, the one on his book cover, is on the opposite corner and may still be for sale as well. These homes are actually located in The Garden District, not Cloverdale.
