Entertainer's delight nestled on 1.2 acres.
This magnificent home is nestled on 1.2 lush acres in the exclusive neighborhood of Tchefuncte Trace. Named “Maison Fleur” (Flower House) by the original owners, the manicured grounds, special architectural elements, and configuration are an entertainer’s delight, and make for an ideal home for a growing family. The slate flooring of the large entry courtyard is surrounded by five sets of French doors with sweeping transoms and an impressive solid wood entry door. The wide plank, heart pine floors of the welcoming foyer continue through the dining, living, and bedrooms. The floor is complimented by 12’ ceilings, cypress ceilings in the dining room, and brick walls throughout the living and dining spaces. The kitchen is literally and figuratively the center of this home as it is flanked by the entry courtyard, the living and dining spaces, and the gorgeous back yard veranda, swimming pool, and yard. The kitchen features slate floors, two large islands, custom cabinets, gourmet stainless steel appliances, cypress ceiling beams, and a sitting/breakfast area. Just past the kitchen and through the butler’s pantry is a spacious living room with custom built-in shelves, a fireplace, and two sets of French doors that open to the entry courtyard. The master suite boasts an enormous bedroom, walk-in custom closet with an island, and a bathroom with views of the backyard oasis. Renovated in 2016, the bath features two separate vanities with marble counters, marble walk-in shower, water closet with a bidet, and a free-standing clawfoot tub. There are two bedrooms with en suite baths just down the hall, and a fourth bedroom/study and bath is just beyond the kitchen. The second floor room is a versatile space as it has a full bath and can be used as a bedroom, game room, or home theater. The gorgeous back yard has several quaint gardens and is anchored by the beautiful swimming pool. The pool is flanked by the long veranda which offers covered seating, dining, and a large outdoor kitchen. You can spend countless hours enjoying this oasis with the comfort of knowing that since 2016 the pool deck, plaster, water jets, and heater have been replaced. Other capital improvements include three new A/C condenser units and insulated metal duct work, three water heaters, gutters, yard drainage, several new windows, and an updated security and video surveillance system. Tchefuncte Trace is a premier gated community conveniently located just south of the Hwy 21/Interstate 12 shopping, dining, and medical corridor.
