Apparently living on Pleasant Street in Birmingham is really…pleasant. Forgive my bad pun.
Aside from the patriotic American flags that residents proudly display on power polls lining the block between Lincoln and Woodward, there seems to be a building boom underway on Pleasant. Today I counted three new homes going up, two more with construction fencing and a 6th sporting the signs of Kevin Hart, a prominent local architect, indications that a major renovation could be in the works.
Why Pleasant? The primary reason is it offers some of Birmingham’s largest lots. Many are over an acre, allowing homes up to 8,000 square feet to still have sizable yards to enjoy. We’ve seen skating rinks out front, pools in the back, lovely covered porches and even a putting green gracing yards on Pleasant Street.
Turkia Mullin’s sister recently sold this beautiful home on Pleasant.
The return of the builders to Birmingham certainly is not limited to Pleasant Street. It is exciting to see new homes going up in Quarton Lake Estates, Little San Francisco and in town, as builders and buyers have restored confidence in the housing market that is underscored by all that Birmingham has to offer.
