Creekwater: 187 Creekwater Street

Welcome home to this one of a kind showplace in Helena’s Creekwater neighborhood. You love the curb appeal of this beautiful new home on a desirable corner home site. The covered front porch beckons you to add a swing or a couple of rockers and revisit a relaxing approach of days gone by. Greet guests in the formal foyer accented with the handcrafted sliding barn doors that open to the dining room, a perfect modern update to a favorite custom feature. Enjoy hosting dinner parties in the pretty dining room, or if you would rather use this space as a dedicated office that will work beautifully.

You will feel right at home in the impressive great room, bathed in natural light from the wall of windows and oh so gorgeous with vaulted ceilings, gorgeous hardwood floors, and a dramatic stacked rock wood-burning fireplace. Building a crackling fire on a cool winter evening will be easy peasy with the gas starter.

The entertainer in you will love the openness between the great room and the stunning kitchen, which boasts an eight foot island that seats four, stainless appliances, beautiful cabinetry and a huge walk-in pantry. You will appreciate all the attention to detail in the kitchen, with gorgeous lighting, a gas oven with real vented hood, granite countertops and high end backsplash. You won’t be able to take your eyes off the special antique serving piece with shelving that helps make this kitchen so special. Even washing clothes won’t seem such a bad chore in the large laundry room with sink, right off the handy mud room that features a built-in bench that works as a great drop zone for coats, shoes, and backpacks.

Relax in the luxurious master bedroom on the main level, big enough to hold king-sized furniture and featuring an impressive lofty custom ceiling. Pamper yourself in the bathroom fit for a spa, gorgeous with custom cabinetry, granite, and elegant rectangular undermount sink. Soak your cares away in the free standing tub, or take a shower in the huge separate shower. You will also appreciate having a large second bedroom and nicely finished bath conveniently located on the main level.

Follow the gorgeous staircase upstairs to find two more large bedrooms with big walk-in closets and a full bath. Make the bonus room work for you as a private mancave or kids retreat. You won’t be able to fill up all the attic storage space this house has waiting for you.

Enjoy the Alabama climate and create year-round outdoor memories on your covered porch and barbecuing on the patio, all in the perfect setting of your private wooded yard. The two car garage is move-in ready, but if you need more, just ask; the builder has said he can add a detached single car 12 x 22′ garage for a reasonable price.

Located in the wonderful, historic town of Helena in thriving Shelby County, Creekwater is quietly scenic while also very convenient to shopping and restaurants. This charming neighborhood is one of the area’s best kept secrets. You will love only being minutes away from major thoroughfares, but yet also having parks and amenities right in your own back yard. Nestled alongside Hurricane Creek, the community’s outdoor fireplace, inviting parks and nature trails create an excellent atmosphere for enjoying time together with family, friends and neighbors.

Just down the road you will be able to enjoy Old Town Helena, treasure hunting in the quaint shops and stopping for a nice meal and some music at Beef O’Brady’s. By the time the Buck Creek Festival rolls around this year, you will be proud to be one of Helena’s residents. Do you love trains? Another favorite spot will be The Depot, where you will be offered a side of history with your delicious burger. Your kids will love attending Helena schools, including the new Helena High School. Go Huskies! There is a reason that Helena is always in the top named cities when magazines and newspapers select the best and safest places to live in Alabama.
