The upper level of the home was remodeled in 2003 and consists of a spacious master bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with separate tub and shower and walk in closet, three (3) additional bedrooms and a bathroom. The kitchen restoration modernized the space with ample cabinets, additional pantry and storage, bay window, original wood flooring and granite counter tops. Updated appliances include the refrigerator (2017/2018), Stove (2010) and Dishwasher. Dishwasher is not in working condition and will need to be repaired or replaced. All appliances stay with the home. 10' - 12' ceiling height throughout. Windows are double insulated. New floors in living room and hall. Blown in insulation. Tankless hot water heaters upstairs and downstairs. Washer/Dryer hook ups for both upstairs and down stairs. Alarm system. House has been painted annually as needed.

Covered back patio with pool, outdoor kitchen, built out cook shack, shed and storage make family time and entertainingly easy! Solid cypress home! The welcoming front porch is more than perfect for your morning coffee. History has it that prior to present restoration, this home was renovated and transformed into several apartments and housed for a time the late Governor Mike Foster. Current owners restored the home back to a single-family dwelling in the early 2000's. This home is a true gem of the community and has been well preserved for the long term. Close proximity and walking distance to shops, library, churches, eateries, parade routes, Historic Downtown Franklin and views of the Bayou Teche, this home provides all the elements for relaxing, comfortable and southern living.
