The Shank's Home
Built as a wedding gift for one of Selma's prominent merchants, P.T. and Hattie Lamar Shanks, this brick two story home is truly one of a kind. This museum quality, fully restored home is in the heart of one of the South's largest historic districts. It has been on Selma's historic pilgrimage two times and is not only a house of importance within the district but it has been given the "live in a landmark" designation.
With Georgian symmetry and ionic columns, this southern estate has great architectural features. Inlaid parquet on the first floor in glorious patterns that are each unique. Laurel wreaths and swags adorn fireplace mantels and door facings. Newly remodeled to include two master suites, one upstairs and one downstairs, a wonderful home to retire or raise a family. A upgraded wonderful kitchen, butlers pantry and pantry with original exposed brick makes a great place to make family meals.
Green features including spray foam insulation have cut utility bills in half. Landscaping is mature with sprinkler system, uplighting and a garden-like private back yard.
