This Colonial Revival Estate, built in 1932 and on the Historical Register has only had two owners in its lifetime. Rarely is there an opportunity to own such an amazing piece of property. The original Morgan Walker House known as Evergreen Plantation is now offered for sale. Located just on the outskirts of town on almost nine Oak Filled Acres, means a helicopter can easily land to transport its new owners to business locations near and far! Bed & Breakfast potential with room to expand additional cabins along the bayou. A perfect venue for hosting weddings, receptions, business retreats, etc.
Walk through the original doors, enter the main house into a grand entryway viewing the spectacular three-story wrought iron staircase and arched doorways into the formal Parlor and Dining Room.
With the original Otis elevator, anyone can enjoy the six roomy bedrooms and updated baths on the second and third story.
Returning downstairs, original double doors with inset leaded beveled glass will lead you to the warm and inviting casual and updated living areas with Rapides Brick and Red Oak floors and crown molding, doors, windows, desk, built ins, cabinets and trims of cypress wood featuring old solid wood beams recovered from Louisiana warehouses and five wood-burning fireplaces. Wander into the two-cook kitchen filled with cypress cabinets and duplicates of every appliance which make this a historic plantation overflow with modern touches.
Walk out on to the back porch, which overlooks the pool and lush landscape, and enjoy the southern breeze on the porch swing. Located just to the side of the pool you will find the pool house with full bath, kitchen and living area perfect for entertaining and overnight guests.
If there is not enough room in this almost 10,000 sq. ft. home, the Guest House sits alongside the majestic oaks and adds another 2,600 sq. ft. with 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms.
Also of interest is the attached four car garage, Meticulous care was taken in the restoration of all aspects of this property. Even the original clay tiles were removed as the substructure was updated and then painstakingly replaced. When the kitchen addition was constructed, the original side entrance was just moved and put back into place, where the Historical Plaque now hangs. - Parking description: 4-Car Garage, 2 Car Garage with unlimited parking spaces. - Number of buildings: 3 - Number of units: 1 - Building condition: Excellent
