Truly an architectural masterpiece for the most discriminating buyer, the timeless elegance and attention to detail in this French Provincial estate begins at the paver driveway and dramatic 12’ cypress entrance door leading into a private New Orleans style courtyard with a lagoon-style pool and lion fountains. From the courtyard, three 12’ arched cypress doors open into a majestic 16’ faux painted ceiling foyer and huge living room. This home showcases 11 professionally decorated rooms including 4 bedrooms, 6.5 bathrooms and 4 gas/wood fireplaces. The main floor has 12’ ceilings throughout, Brazilian quartzite and heartwood pine flooring, marble and hand-painted baths, beautiful crown moldings and 10 inch baseboards. Love to entertain? Creating the ambiance of a resort, the grand living room with detailed mantle gas/wood fireplace views the bayou via 3 sets of cypress storm doors accessing the huge patio w/outdoor fireplace and 2 large seating areas. Love intimate gatherings? The inviting kitchen and keeping room feature a tongue and groove ceiling, granite countertops, high end appliances and comfortable seating. A private hallway from the kitchen leads through a wet bar and butler’s pantry into a fabulous formal dining room as well as a private wood-paneled office/study. The master suite has two luxury master baths, “hers” includes double sinks, bidet, garden tub and “his” bath features a custom shower, huge closet and dressing room. Two sets of double doors access a lovely balcony overlooking the bayou as well as the expansive patio/outdoor kitchen with fireplace. When viewing the 2 bedrooms upstairs, note the ensuite baths and generous storage, including walk-in attic space. When you go to the 2 car garage, you will be amazed at the size of a second huge family/game room with built-in cabinets, a full bath, laundry room w/sink and two more large storage rooms (one is cedar). Easily accessed, this huge space is convertible to meet your family’s needs.
