Description

You get the ''WOW'' feeling the second you drive up to this Circa1905 Historical Home listed on the Lafayette Historic Registry. You are greeted with beautiful porches on 3 sides of the home and a beautiful landscaped yard that sits on .73 of an acre. The galvalume V crimp metal roof with galvanized gutters and downspouts are perfect for this 4 bedroom, which are very large, 3 bath, 4100 square foot home. Enter through the front door and you are greeted with a beautifully finished cypress stair case with long leaf pine flooring, 12' beaded board ceilings, double insulated windows, and the beautiful trim work throughout the home gives you the character that you would want in a historical home. Above the carport a 432 square foot gabled room with electricity can be a man cave or apartment The home is designed to fit all of your family needs for your new dream home. In the front of the home you have a spacious office and on the opposite side of the foyer is a spacious living room. You walk down the long foyer and you have a bedroom on each side with it's own bathroom. You will adore the clawfoot bath tub! At the end of the foyer you enter into the family room and dining area that opens to the kitchen. The kitchen keeps the character of the home with an open transom and a tongue and groove wall. Upstairs has two spacious bedrooms, a full bath and as added features you have a sitting area that overlooks the property through a dormer window and a large room that can be used as an entertainment room or sewing room. All the walls were stripped to the studs and they installed insulation and solid plywood. The ceilings also have solid plywood. This home is built of solid wood construction and the average total utility bills including electricity, city water, city sewer and garbage is an "unbelievable" $225.00!! Exit out of the back door from the kitchen to the covered porch down the steps to the 2 car carport that has a workshop with unique tin wall and a beaded wood ceiling that is original from the home and on the back of the workshop you have an additional covered area. This historical home is one of a kind in a prime location in the City of Lafayette. It is owned by a Civil Engineer and for the last 22 years he and his wife put extras on it starting from the pilings and piers from when they moved this home from Moss street to it's current location. This home was a refuge hospital in the 1927 flood which adds to the historic value (look at the framed family picture in the front living room). The home has never flooded. The Civil Engineer (owner) made sure of that! This home is waiting for its next family. The pictures are beautiful however you must see this home to really appreciate it! Make an appointment before it is gone!
