A rare and private East Hill property, this 5000 square foot home is secluded from street view, resides on almost two acres of land with 139 feet of water frontage. The 1950s home was extensively renovated in the mid-1990s to an open floor plan with 9' and 12' ceilings, preservation of original terrazzo and features large windowed rooms with great views of the Bayou and surrounding verdant property. The current owner has continued to improve the home with multiple refinements including large impact windows, a re-tiled porch, Japanese influenced kitchen with modern Bosch and Subzero appliances including wine storage and floating serving area. The home features several large rooms which are perfect both for entertaining as well as day to day living. The hallmark is a 16’ by 41’ dinning and living room with stunning water views, original large masonry fireplace and porch access including an additional screened porch surrounded by bamboo. Terrazzo flooring leads to a large den with another fireplace and a large sitting room. Both rooms and the master bedroom also feature large windows with amazing views. The master bedroom and bathroom, two additional bedrooms with bathrooms, an office, children study area, and half bathroom complete the upstairs. Downstairs is an additional bedroom with bathroom and another sitting room with full bathroom. This opens to an additional porch, two car garage and large exercise room. Laundry is available on the first and lower level. A large walk-up attic provides near endless storage space. Amble parking options - 2 car carport with covered walk-way to kitchen, the two car garage below and a free-standing one car garage. Paver stones meander to a boat house, dock and picnic area. Centrally located, commute in minutes to downtown offices, restaurants, Cordova Mall, hospitals and airport and a short drive to our famous white sandy beaches.
