Features we love: Birmingham’s most treasured masterpiece, The Wofford Villa, has been lovingly cared for over the years with modern updates. Its original details such as hand-carved doors, painted murals, original crests, and tray ceiling were all crafted in the 1920s by Italian artisans from Florence. The exquisite dining room, Italian marble throughout, grand staircase, master bedroom, modern kitchen, and extravagant pool and pool house create a once-in-lifetime opportunity not to be missed.
