This elegant antebellum home was built in the early 1900's by renowned physician, Mortimer Jordan and his wife, Florence Mudd. Mudd's father built Arlington House, Birmingham's only antebellum mansion to survive the Civil War. The Jordan Home is a fine example of neo-classical architecture with its grand symmetrical, large central entrance, a wide portico with four ionic columns and elaborate dentil work on the pediment. It was restored in 1969 by Al Pilkington, a prominent businessman and entrepreneur who did extensive renovations to the house and gardens. Set behind an ornate wrought iron gate, the grounds complement the exterior and the landscaping is well maintained with garden areas, flowering containers and beautiful water fountains. Private patio in the back has a delightful gazebo, charming guest house with porch and courtyard with wall fountain. Great location in the Highland Park neighborhood, it is within walking distance to many restaurants and parks.
