Columns, shutters and French doors are the first hint that you are entering a home that was designed by A. Hays Town. This classic Southern Home is reminiscent of a way of life that goes back to Louisiana’s roots. This historical home has a brand new $81,000 slate roof, a deep water dock, a whole home generator and new air conditioning units. It is also gated for total privacy but is close to everything.
Mr. Town’s signature appointments abound. They include old redwood cypress plank flooring, massive wooden ceiling beams, old cypress doors and brick floors. The brick floors with Mr. Town’s special beeswax finish are a recurring element of the first floor.
There is room to grow in this 3 story home. When you enter the foyer you are greeted by a winding staircase and entry ways to the formal living room, formal dining room and the den. The first floor also includes the kitchen, a butler’s pantry, a library, the master suite and the sunroom.
Walk up the staircase and you will find a large central hallway with access to 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and the upstairs front porch that spans the width of the main house. Continue up the staircase to the third floor and you will be pleased to discover a self-contained bedroom suite with a full bath, steam shower, a kitchenette and an exercise room. The exercise room is a perfect place for a home theater.
The long circular drive to the house winds through a park like setting that includes a pond and fountain. Intriguing touches like ornamental statues and a small bridge create a delightful impression on the first time visitor.
