Step back in time with this beautiful Acadian farmhouse that sits on 6 acres off historic River Road and offers nearly 3600 sq ft of living area. Let's talk curb appeal - a circular driveway with brick inlay, landscaped flower beds, rose garden, century-old oaks & pecan trees as well as a brick walkway leading to the charming front porch. Inside you'll find original architectural details like pine flooring, high ceilings, timber beams, bead-board walls, and four original fireplaces (now decorative). Just through the elegant great room (complete with cypress beams and custom built-ins), your chef’s kitchen awaits! It features a six-burner Wolf cooktop with a custom copper hood, Sub-Zero refrigerator and wine cooler, Wolf double wall ovens, ice maker, cypress cabinetry and trim, granite countertops, hand-forged lighting, and a massive center island with seating for a crowd. The large pantry even includes enough space for an extra fridge. The kitchen is open to the keeping room, which has a cozy wood-burning brick fireplace and access to the screened-in porch. The primary bedroom offers an updated ensuite with two walk-in closets, travertine tiles, dual sinks, a modern free-standing soaking tub, and a custom-tiled corner shower. Both additional bedrooms are spacious and feature stunning floor-to-ceiling windows that look out onto the front porch. Don’t forget about all the storage in the laundry room, the large sunny office that overlooks the backyard, plus the fantastic flex space upstairs (playroom/gym/storage/etc.) with wood floors and ductless A/C. Outside, you will find an enticing pavilion perfect for entertaining, a three-stall barn, workshop, and a whole-home generator! Spray-foam insulation under the home will help keep the utility bills low while the French drainage system will keep the yard around the home nice and dry. This private River Road retreat is rural – but not isolated – and offers an easy commute to downtown Baton Rouge.
