Description

OPEN HOUSE, SUNDAY MAY 15th FROM 2-4pm!!! Built in 1870 in Plaquemine and moved to 'the lakes' in Baton Rouge in 2000, this cypress home is one most walkers and joggers remember. Painted in its original colors, the attention to detail is remarkable. The millwork is hand carved... even the shutters are original. The solid carved front door, original pine floors, 12 foot ceilings 8' solid doors, beaded board ceilings and wainscot and mostly original window panes bring you back in time. A large front porch, approached from wide brick and then wooden steps, provides magical views of the lakes and surrounding homes. There is usually a breeze as the home rests on piers high above ground level. The foyer is flanked by a living room, with tall windows overlooking the lake, and the master bedroom. It continues into the large dining room with stairway leading upstairs. The kitchen was tastefully added and the cabinets and island were made on site. Beyond the kitchen is a large den that was an addition but feels original. The upstairs has a more casual feel of a living room, with a large area with pine floors and cathedral ceiling following the rafters. A bath and 2 large dormers make it easy to parcel into more bedrooms if desired. The garage sits further back on this 100X290 lot with access from an alley off Morning Glory. This structure was actually an old church that was moved on site and renovated into a double garage downstairs and office space with a bath and kitchen upstairs. This home has a charm that's undeniable and a perfect place to watch sunsets. Documents regarding history of home inside on dining room table.
