Welcome to 5755 Bayou Paul Road, designed in the A Hays Town style by architect Ike Capdeville. Sitting on nearly THREE ACRES with a 1200 sf metal WORKSHOP, this classic Louisiana home features red heart pine floors throughout the downstairs and cypress doors, cabinets and millwork throughout, all salvaged from buildings torn down for the 1984 Worlds Fair in New Orleans. The kitchen is a showplace, with overhead cypress beams, real BRICK FLOORS, gas stove and double oven, and nearly wall to wall wood windows (replaced this year) offering beautiful country views. Just off the kitchen is a spacious walk in pantry and laundry room, with plenty of space for a freezer. The living room, with its 11 foot ceilings, features a real WOOD BURNING HEARTH as the center of the home. The front door entrance into a beautiful foyer offers views of the living room, with a music room (would be a great PLAYROOM or additional study) and its pocket doors to the left, and a formal dining room to the right. There is a PRIVATE OFFICE wing, with an exposed brick wall and half bath, and French doors leading to a private porch. The master bedroom is on the first floor and offers plantation shutters, a large en suite bath with clawfoot tub and separate shower, his and hers closets and separate vanities. There are two bedrooms with walk-in closets upstairs, a large bathroom and a sitting area with a built-in desk. Outside, you'll find a large BACK PORCH and patio with two fountains, an attached double carport and a walk-in storage room, and a back deck for grilling beneath the shady tree. This home offers the peace and serenity of the country, with less than 10 minutes' drive to Bluebonnet, 15 minutes to LSU, or 30 minutes to Ascension Parish.
