The soft tones and contrasting chrome on black accents give this home a contemporary look with a bit of that Mid-Century feel. From the bold, black front door with its striking chrome lever knob to the soring "to the ceiling" black kitchen Shaker-style custom cabinets with strategically appointed chrome pulls, the whole house comes together with light, maple wood floors throughout (no carpet). Such a sleek look! The Living room is open and roomy and full of windows. Broad, elliptical arches separate the main rooms in the home. In the dining room, there is even enough room for that family heirloom china cabinet, serving buffet or maybe a piano. Wow! And, we can't go any further without mentioning the totally fabulous chrome, crystal and Lucite chandelier. A show stopper!! The Slab Granite countertops in this tremendous U-shaped kitchen have a raised bar counter for additional seating accented by Stainless Steel appliances. Plus, this beautifully designed home is equipped with energy efficient natural gas heat, hot water and just what every Louisiana cook loves, a gas stove! But, it's the finishing touches that make this home very special! You've got the elegance of crown molding which ultimately defines quality and the luxury of extra-large flooring tiles which makes every room just a bit grander. Then, there's the Master Suite that just has to be seen! There's even sound insulation in the Master Bedroom walls (something you won't appreciate until AFTER you move in) with a Master Bath that hosts a fabulous garden tub, a large separate shower that has a corner seat and a slab granite counter with two under-mount sinks. And there is more! Starting with a better than grade slab to a radiant barrier, insulated, 20yr roof, this home has every amenity: a solid brick home (Yes - brick, not only make for a stronger home, it is the Southern home's best insulator - no vinyl walls here!) with a 2-car garage - big enough to fit your truck and more - really. Every detail has been thought through, even your mailbox is uniquely chosen for this home. Did I mention the neighborhood? It's divine! You will know it the moment you arrive as you drive through the grand columns and wrought iron arched entrance or stroll down the sidewalk to a walking park planted with 32 select trees. It's just plain beautiful!! Located across from Pelican Park, there is room to play in the spacious live oak shaded park across the street - big enough for football, baseball, picnics and more! There's ALL of that and you are just 15 minutes from everything!! Take University to Downtown or Mills to the Mall, not to mention easy access to the I-49/I-10 exchange. You have City Sewer and Water. NONE of the homes in this subdivision have ever flooded and NONE of this 71-lot development is in a flood zone. 100% financing for qualified buyers!!! AND FINALLY -- Don't let the square footage fool you; this 1443sf is laid out so well, you'll think you are in a 1600sf home - only you don't have to pay for one. Smart!!
