History of Gabrella Manor

"Bundy House (c. 1938) Spanish Colonial Revival; two story brick with terra cotta roof; turreted entry way with multiple patios and terraces. Interior features include large rooms designed for entertaining, multiple murals and original stained glass windows throughout reflecting a Spanish theme, textured walls, a grand staircase, balcony from bedroom overlooking the living room, multiple arches and columns, tile flooring and original tile scenes in fireplace."

"Originally designed by a Dallas architect commissioned by the first owner Robert C. Bundy; estate is located on approximately five acres of land and originally had a swimming pool and guest quarters. The Bundy family was well respected throughout Birmingham and was known for entertaining guests and visiting dignitaries to the city."

"Today the house remains a restored Birmingham landmark with the current owners, Brenda Jones and Steve Johnson, renaming it Gabrella Manor in honor of her grandmother. The house sits at the edge of Roebuck Springs Historic District and is used as a meeting place for celebrations such as weddings, anniversaries, etc."

(excerpted from Application to the National Register of Historic Places, October 1998)

Brenda Jones and Steve Johnson are the resident owners of Gabrella Manor. They were married at Gabrella Manor in December 1997 (the first wedding there!) and continue to actively renovate and improve between events. Both are native Alabamians. Read less

This place was absolutely perfect!! The venue alone is breath-taking. The staff and the owners were always willing to help, give advice, and do everything for you. This is an "all-in-one" type of venue. They provide everything from flowers, food, photography, decor, invitations/programs, cakes, etc. You name it, they can take care of it. My husband (fiance at the time) and I both work full time so we didn't have the time to go from vendor to vendor to figure out if people were available, or how much they cost. Gabrella Manor was everything we dreamed of.

Did a wonderful job especially since it was an evening wedding and we had a severe thunderstorm just before our arrival. All plans had to be changed to bring it under cover (with no power), great job.
