Situated on two private acres in Mountain Brook, 2963 Shook Hill Parkway is a stunning retreat. The attention to fine detail throughout and unique architectural elements make this home truly a gem here in the Magic City.
With six bedrooms, 8.5 bathrooms and three levels of living, this home boasts room for the whole family. “It’s a wonderful house to raise a family—everyone has their own space, but there are warm rooms to gather together,” said listing realtor Lucy Parker with Ray and Poynor.
As you enter the home, the grand staircase and soaring ceilings welcome you. The home has a distinct European flair, with wooden beams, arches and columns that create a refined living space while also being comfortable and inviting. Natural light fills each room.
The main level master suite features walk-in closets, a spacious bathroom, sitting area and terrace overlooking the professionally landscaped, flat backyard. The gorgeous pool area with bluestone decking and multiple patios is complemented by a pool house designed by renowned Birmingham firm Sprott Long Architects. It offers an outdoor kitchen, fireplace and seating area—a fantastic place for outdoor gatherings.
The current owners have enjoyed entertaining in this home throughout the years, from the media room and billiards room on the downstairs level to the large great room and beautiful outdoor areas. “They have hosted many dinners, events and football viewing parties,” said Parker. The home has also served as a gorgeous backdrop for prom photos and special family gatherings.
Upstairs, there are five bedrooms that each have their own private bathroom. There is also a private in-law suite with separate entrance and garage. Another three-car garage is located on the main level.
Aside from the features of the home itself, the location is hard to beat. “It’s a low-traffic area convenient to downtown, shops and restaurants,” said Parker. “The neighborhood is full of walkers and children playing in the creek.”
