The main cabin has two stories, with pine floors, ceilings and exposed wood walls throughout. The living room and dining room share a two-sided Southwestern-style fireplace with a tile surround. The kitchen has granite countertops, a subway-tile backsplash and stainless-steel appliances, updated in 2010. There’s also a sunny dining nook. One of the bedrooms, part of a suite, is on the main level. The bedrooms upstairs maintain the clean, rustic look, with lots of exposed wood, a claw-foot tub in an en-suite bathroom, and a cast-iron stove in one of the bedrooms.
The guest cabin has two bedrooms. The living room has a river-rock wall with niches for a wood-burning stove and a TV, with picture windows on either side. A ladder in the living room leads up to a loft bedroom; the other is on the main floor.
Between the two cabins is a hot tub and a deck on top of a building that serves as a changing room. Other outbuildings include a four-car garage, a tack shed, a bunkhouse and a cluster of three offices, all low-slung.
OUTDOOR SPACE: The property is rolling and pristine, with access to both forest service land and the Fryingpan River.

SETTING: The city of Mountain Brook is an affluent suburb of Birmingham. Development began in the late 1920, and some of the commercial pockets have a Tudor design. This house is on a three-and-a-half-acre lot, in a neighborhood of wooded, winding streets not far from walking trails and the city’s public high school.
INDOORS: The two-story contemporary was built in 1988, with a light-colored stucco and limestone exterior, curving walls of glass and an extensive terrace. Floors are hardwood in most of the house.
The living and dining area is a large space with a two-story ceiling, floor-to-ceiling windows and a partial wall with a mottled black-and-white marble fireplace. The stainless-steel kitchen appliances were updated in the late 1990s. Countertops are granite. Next to the kitchen is a sitting room with a fireplace flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows; the ceiling over these spaces is pitched and punctuated by skylights. Also off the kitchen are a family room and a den. Every common room opens to the terrace or the yard through glass doors.
The main-level master wing, an addition, has two dressing areas, as well as an upstairs loft that opens to a private balcony. Another main-level bedroom, designed as an au pair suite, has a bathroom and private entrance. Three more bedrooms are upstairs, one of which is yet another large suite with a living room.
OUTDOOR SPACE: The lot is 3.4 acres, mostly wooded, with a stream….
