Donnelly house up for sale

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The Donnelly house, a landmark home in Birmingham's southside neighborhood, is up for sale.

Realtors held an open house Friday morning. The house has been used for decades as an events venue for weddings and other parties.

The house recently fell into foreclosure and is now listed for $950,000. Realtors say that is well below the appraised value of $1.4 million.

The bank said it is hoping to sell the home to a single family or business wanting to continue the events planning tradition.
