Exquisite homestead sits on almost 5 acres that includes approximately 500 ft. on the banks of the Bayou Teche with its own gazebo to fish from or just relax and enjoy the sunsets. As you drive down the private road to the main house, notice several picturesque live oaks with draping moss that are 200+ years old that any bride would be honored to have her wedding photos taken beneath. However, next to the pond with the sprawling cypress trees in the backdrop would be just as beautiful. Enjoy the many fruit bearing trees/bushes that include orange, kumquat, fig, pomegranate & grapes. The main home boasts over 5300 sq. ft. that includes 2 huge family rooms with their own wood burning fireplaces, 12' ceilings with beautiful wood beams. The larger of these has a half bath & 11' wet bar wi th built-in ice maker and mini-fridge to accommodate your guests while you are entertaining. Take note of the wall of French doors that allows a view of the gunite pool/spa in the backyard and the Bayou Teche. Enjoy your brand new gas cooktop, microwave & disposal in the kitchen. Formal dining room has 2 very large built-in china cabinets for your sentimental pieces to be displayed. Be sure to peek into all of the walk-in closets in each of the 5 bedrooms as they have built-in dressers and shoe racks. Master bath has a whirlpool tub, stand-alone shower, his & hers walk-in closets and a separate make-up vanity. Flex room with a built-in ironing board, storage and countertops would be a perfect craft room. The room atop the spiral staircase could be a fabulous media room. Follow the covered walkway to the attached garage apartment with a full kitchen that has a new hood, kitchen faucet, light fixture, and fresh paint, full bath and bedroom that could be used as a pool house or rental property. Room for a stackable washer/dryer and notice the 1/2 bath and storage closet on the outside. No need to furnish it, furniture that is in there now will remain. Notice the detached guest house with covered parking along the driveway that also has a full kitchen/bath that can also be used as a rental if desired. Washer/dryer in this unit stays. New roof on the main home and gazebo was installed approximately 18 months ago. The 40 x 100 barn/stable with 1/2 bath has an attached 20 x 100 lean to and fenced in pasture for any animals you would like to accommodate. There is also a chicken coop and dog kennel if you would like to add these pets to your family. As you are walking the property look for the many drains strategically placed for drainage. This property is stunning as is but has endless possibilities for someone with a vision.
