Baton Rouge, LA 70806
This classic Tara beauty is centrally located just minutes from I-12, Towne Center, Government Street, the new White Star Market, the LSU campus, Downtown, and so much more. This meticulously cared for home was custom built by the one previous owner, an engineer with an eye for perfection. Featuring nine-foot ceilings with crown molding and custom features throughout. Beautiful French doors across the front and large bay windows across side and back, boasting tons of natural light. The elegant marble floors in the grand foyer welcome guests into an expansive dining and sitting area with discreet back kitchen easy access. The stately brick floors flow through the sprawling den, which flows into the breakfast room and kitchen. The oversized rooms also offer ample closet and storage space. The two downstairs bedrooms include the large master suite with two walk-in closets and a guest bedroom, with its own walk-in closet and ensuite bath. The magnificent masonry fireplace in the den offers the exposed brick, with real wood burning capacity. Real Silverwood paneling, now rare today, frames the family room – radiating a warmth and elegance that transcends traditional, modern and contemporary. A few other great features include a large laundry/mud room with separate entrance, additional storage, built-in cabinetry, and a wet sink. This is a huge lot on the boulevard with a large secluded backyard for gardening, recreation, or a quiet sanctuary. The circular drive is great for all guests or families with multiple cars, also a two-car carport in the rear and two enclosed garages for the man toys/workshop (or in-law suite down the road) provide many options. This is a real gem, full of character with amazing potential! Close to Mercy and St. Luke’s schools. Tara has some of the fastest growing property values in Baton Rouge. This one will not last long!
