MarketWatch: A five-bedroom family home in a gated Prairieville neighborhood just may be a best-kept secret
This five-bedroom family home just might be the best kept secret in the Capital Region.
It’s comfortable. It’s quiet. It sits on a 1-acre lot tucked away in an upscale gated neighborhood off Perkins Road in Prairieville. And it is surrounded by magnificent estate-sized lots with mature trees and luxury homes with diverse architecture.
It’s also completely updated, immaculate, and ready for move-in.
The floor plan is highly functional, with plenty of space for everyone—including 4.2 bathrooms.
Updates include brand new windows throughout the house that draw in plenty of natural light. New LED pot lighting and new light fixtures and fans adorn the space.
Off the foyer is an office with a fireplace to set the ambiance. A large family room features a soaring ceiling, custom-built fireplace, bookcases, all new hardwood and ceramic flooring. Two-story windows and a bay window overlook a spectacular rear view of the pool.
The home’s oversized eat-in kitchen is outfitted with a large island accented by breakfast bar and double sink. Among the new Viking appliances: refrigerator, wall oven, microwave and range oven with gas cooktop. Countertops are granite and new marble. All this, plus an eat-in area and a newly added walk-in pantry. There’s a separate formal dining room for entertaining guests.
Bathrooms offer new countertops, sinks, faucets, and toilets throughout. The master bath is an extra-large en suite with all new updates in white. This get-away offers a stand-alone soaking tub, a separate seamless glass shower, double vanities, a chandelier, and his/her walk-in closets plus one additional large walk-in closet.
Two stairways lead to the second floor: one in the foyer; another in kitchen. Here, you’ll find 4 bedrooms—two on each side of an open hallway overlooking the foyer and family room—and a recreation/game room for hanging out. All are newly carpeted.
Generous closet and storage space are available throughout this home. The utility room has been outfitted with new sink faucets and a countertop, and offers a half bath and built-in desk.
Both the interior and exterior are newly painted. A black aluminum fence surrounds the 1-acre lot, and a screened porch off the kitchen is a place for moments of relaxation. There’s a circular driveway for easy access and plenty of parking, as well as a double garage with a boat port.
For all the conveniences of the city, just take I-10 to Baton Rouge or New Orleans.
