The Fish Camp has been an unusually popular community as of late. A local home builder bought the remaining 7 lots in this Wolf Bay subdivision on Canal Road. The Fish Camp is situated directly on Wolf Bay and much of the property is wooded with common areas such as boat docks and slips and a community pool in the center of Fish Camp’s cottages. The property is comprised of lots and cottages lumped together with prices ranging from $195,000 to $250,000. The Wolf Bay homes range from 1,200 to 1,600 square feet and they are currently all sold.
The value is in the Fish Camp’s amenities. Think about the complete water access; boat and jet skis lifts with slips for keeping water craft, 2 community pools and location, location, location. The Fish Camp is minutes away from the Gulf of Mexico via car, walking or on the boat. Also close by are restaurants, shopping venues, the Wharf and numerous other Orange Beach attractions. Directly in front of the Fish Camp is one of the premier restaurants in the area in Cosmo’s. This great eatery serves everything from sushi to steak and is consistently voted a local favorite.
The Fish Camp, like any other Gulf Coast real estate has had its fair share of trouble in the past several years. When the Fish Camp was initially sold, it sold for about twice the current market value. Some of the cottages in the Fish Camp went in to foreclosure and uncertainty was in the air. Since its inception, the Fish Camp has came a long way and with the current atmosphere and tourism driven economy thriving, look for these cottages to make for ideal investment property.
The original owner, Richard Cobb, developed the 10 acres on Wolf Bay back in 2001. Homes in the Fish Camp feature Hardie-plank siding, metal roofs, rocker-friendly screened porches and the exterior paint schemes were chosen to blend with native trees and shrubs. There will be a total of 37 cottages and 11 condominiums when the project is complete. The property has 200 feet on Wolf Bay and as mentioned earlier, Cosmos restaurant owns the commercial real estate portion of the Fish Camp on Canal rd.
In closing, it’s an exciting time on the Gulf Coast. Real Estate is selling, the tourism industry is blossoming and the economy seems to be making daily strides. The residents of the Gulf Coast and the U.S., for that matter, can start to take comfort in knowing the worst may be behind us.
