This unique home was constructed in the 1970s on a large corner lot in the South Roebuck neighborhood of Birmingham, Alabama. The five-bedroom, three-bath house was built by the Khalaf family, who owned Salem’s Pharmacy near East End Memorial Hospital (now Ascension St. Vincent’s East). Since then, the property has changed owners several times, however, no one has lived in the home in at least a decade, perhaps longer. The once spectacular home that includes a fountain in the entryway, an in-law suite in the basement, and a large in-ground pool has fallen into severe disrepair. The roof and main floor have partially collapsed into the basement. Last year, the property was purchased by Monroe Park Properties who plan to renovate the dilapidated home. From start to finish, the project is expected to take 3-4 months and will begin in mid-July 2022.
