Property Description

Step back in time and immerse yourself in the charm of this 1920s cottage nestled at the foot of the mighty Mississippi River in downtown Port Allen. Legends whisper that it was crafted by a ship captain, and as you enter through the double doors onto the expansive front porch, the allure of its historic heritage envelops you. Original features abound, from the front porch shutters to the alluring wood flooring that leads you through the spacious living room and into the front bedroom. Wander down the hallway, where the laundry room and the vintage bathroom with its elegant cypress wainscotting and original fixtures await. The heart of this home beats in the vast kitchen/dining/keeping area, boasting professionally crafted cypress cabinetry that harmonizes perfectly with the slab granite breakfast bar. Storage is abundant, seamlessly blending the old with the new, as stainless steel appliances and a recently replaced roof and HVAC unit ensure modern comfort without compromising its nostalgic appeal. A master suite, discretely added later, offers a private retreat with its own exterior entrance, while just off the kitchen, a cozy deck beckons for lazy mornings and quiet evenings. The sizable backyard surprises with a shed and a patio area, ideal for relaxing in the shade or gathering around the fire pit under starlit skies. Nearby, a short walk leads to the levee, inviting you to explore scenic riverside trails. Despite its serene setting, Baton Rouge is a mere 5-minute drive away, offering easy access to city amenities while preserving the tranquility of this historic gem. Whether savoring coffee on the porch swing or listening to the rhythms of passing ships, this cottage promises a lifestyle where vintage elegance meets modern convenience, creating a timeless haven unlike any other.
