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: 1910  *  Sq Ft: 4,014  *   4 bdrm/2 bath   *   Listing)

(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!

    FABULOUS house! Had no idea you could just pull a table right up to your kitchen bar like that. Would have never thought of it, but I love it. Mixing so many different styles makes this a really great house!

  2. Jay Hendershot says

    Oh my. His house is beautiful! Serious living room/kitchen/bathroom/hallway envy going on right now!

  3. says

    I’ve very familiar with Old Cloverdale…having grown up in Montgomery I’ve always loved and admired those homes and have several friends who live in that neighborhood.

    I think maybe Greg’s house was on HGTV a few years ago?

  4. says

    Such a lovely house! I love how it is decorated – light and airy. I can’t believe the price! Wish we were looking in your area. Prices are a little higher up here in Massachusetts where we live. :(

  5. Tiffany says

    All of the homes pictures are beautiful, who wouldn’t want to live in them? Greg’s house is fabulous, but I am dying to know where his “stuff” is? My goal each year (as I age) is to continue to simplify; to not own so much “stuff.” I’ll be like Greg one day. :) Great post, Layla.

  6. Kim Olea says

    Would like to learn more about last house but your link doesn’t work. Loved the house tour!!

  7. says

    we have been having the worst time trying to buy a house…maybe it’s because we are looking in the wrong state! all of those homes were gorgeous!

  8. says

    Wow! Love Greg’s house – larger than I think I’d want personally but jam packed with style. I particularly loved the main staircase and the study.

  9. Ter'e Crow Lindsay says

    I love all the unexpected! What an eye for beauty he has.
    My very favorite spot was that gorgeous bathtub. Wouldn’t you just feel regal, sitting in there, amongst the bubbles?
    WOW. Such exquisite beauty!
    I’d love to just walk thru the house and bask in the sunlight.

  10. says

    Wow– really lovely! The staircase is breathtaking– and I love the idea of keeping bath salts in those little sealed jars near the tub!

  11. Jane Helms Langan says

    Just noticed that your pictures of the home are far better than the ones advertising the home for sale. Food for thought! It’s wonderful watching your talent and success unfold. Love to the family, Jane

  12. Tracey says

    $499,000? That’s it???? WOW!!!! I live in Ohio and houses selling for that up here are…. Some of them are pretty nice, but nothing like that! That house is amazing and a steal at that price!

  13. Leigh says

    WOW… gorgeous house!! Ã…nd for the price, it is unbelievable! I wish I could sell my house right now and buy this one, even though it’s halfway around the country… husband may not be keen on that idea, though.

  14. says

    Cloverdale is such a beautiful neighborhood. Absolutely gorgeous home. Can NOT believe the price…that is a fabulous house for an amazing price. Question… what’s on the tile floor under the guest bath sink??


  15. I love old houses says

    I loved the old house, but I don’t care for the contemporary updates.

  16. Erin says

    I can’t believe the prices on those houses. You couldn’t even buy a studio in my neighborhood, they are so beautiful.

  17. says

    BEAUTIFUL! I actually know Greg’s parents. His Mom still lives here in hometown of your favorite { Southern Accents}, but his dad passed away a few years ago. Greg’s home is LOVELY!!!

  18. Laura says

    My favorite thing was the bowl full of keys! I probably will never have a house quite like that, but I could have a fun bowl of keys!!

  19. Kim says

    As a former Old Cloverdale resident, I really enjoyed your post. I haven’t lived there in 20 years, but I have such fond memories of the lovely neighborhood. It’s a beautiful place!

  20. Netty says

    painful…. :) The houses you showed look amazing and are huge…and are less than what we paid for our house outside of DC…. ugh….. cost of living differences are rough sometimes! :)

  21. Barbara says

    Loved the tour – nothing like an older home. Thanks, Layla!
    Lovely photos, Kevin!

  22. Christy says

    This is too cool. I have drooled over “pins” of Greg Tankersley’s architechture and day-dreamed of living a day in some of those beautiful houses. I think it would be inspiring and quite pleasant to say the least. He has amazing taste and absolutely beautiful rooms. I had no idea that gem of a home was right around the corner. Yep…I learned today from your post that he lives one street away from us. Woah. What a small world it is. Thank you for sharing this beauty!

  23. says

    When I see homes like this for that much money it pretty much blows my mind. Seriously, Greg’s home in our area would be well over a million. It’s a lovely home to say the least and Greg has impeccable taste. I love the rustic table near the kitchen bar area. Throughout the home, he used top notch materials and I have to say I really like that striped chair in the first picture. Very cute! Thanks for the tour Layla!!

  24. Tammy Hall says

    Layla, I’m loving your posts lately. I’m from Tallassee, so I was familiar with the Tru-Value store there and I’m working in the Cloverdale Historic District this Summer. It’s a great neighborhood, isn’t it? The houses there are so cool! Love your blog…

  25. Missy says

    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!

  26. Kristine says

    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!

  27. says

    wait 5ooK???? are you serious? in houston that house would be 3 million!!!! it is soooooooooooooooo gorgeous!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    love your new guest room too. can’t wait to see it finished


  28. says

    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!

  29. Nancy says

    omg, so much eye candy! I love everything about the first one except the kitchen wallpaper. just beautiful.

  30. says

    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.

  31. Kelly says

    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.
