390 Morrison Road
Equality, AL 36026
Update: Listing SOLD! 390 Morrison Road is that quintessential Lake Martin cabin in the woods. Located in the popular Little Kowaliga / Real Island area on the west side of the lake, this two bedroom, two bath cabin lives large on a wooded 1.3 acre lot. It comes fully furnished and decorated, so you can get right to the action (or relaxing) on Lake Martin.
The setting is private and tranquil, but the home is minutes by boat from popular west side attractions. The lot boasts over 200 feet of shoreline, and the water depth is great – around 8 feet off the dock at the normal summer full pool of 490′.
Woods owned by Alabama Power border this lot in the back of the slough, adding to feel of privacy. The landscape has been kept very natural, so there’s no grass to mow, only shade to enjoy. And because this home has been extensively updated, there will plenty of time to relax.
From Morrison Road, you immediately will notice the large pole barn behind the home. This is a great place to store boat or trailers. There’s a big parking area at the back entrance of this well kept cabin. It has new siding, a new metal roof, and a new deck that has been added to the already large lakeside screened porch.
You enter the home on the street side and walk into a large, open, kitchen and great room. This exactly what so many lake cabins long for: a big, bright, open kitchen with tons of cabinet and counters pace, plus a great room with vaulted ceilings and a fireplace.
Immediately to the right when you enter into the kitchen is the newly updated full bathroom.
Back out in the great room we find a living area, a dining area, large windows, and access to the screened porch.
Right off the eating area is the master bedroom with a full bath. This space has been completely renovated and this bathroom is brand new. What used to be a large storage room off of the porch has been smartly rebuilt into a full bath for a great use of space.
Back across the great room is the second bedroom. It’s light and bright and has a large closet.
We’ll make our way back through the great room to a porch that almost doubles the living space of this home. Its screened porch feels like a tree house. To me, this is just what I think of when I envision a Lake Martin cabin. It’s cool and shady and is big enough for multiple seating or dining areas. Enjoy the breeze in the summer and the football games in the fall in this bonus living space.
The door on the porch is a laundry room with a full size washer and dryer, and the deck and steps down to the lake outside the screened porch are a new addition to the home.
The view of the water from the porch is just perfect. Woodsy, yet accessible. You can see all parts of the waterfront from the house, yet the trees give you privacy and shade. When the above pictures and video were taken, lake level was down about 4 feet from full pool – normal for an October on Lake Martin.
To get a sense of how private this home feels, remember there are no neighbors to the left, and the closest neighbor to the right is barely visible through the trees.
From the dock, we can see how gently the lot slopes, leveling off a little at the shore. A sandy beach area with clear water is perfect for wading in, or for jumping into off of the fixed or floating docks.
This is it, folks. 390 Morrison Road is that cute Lake Martin cabin in the woods. Low maintenance. Big fun. Act now.
