Country Cottage


This bright, open and airy home was expanded and completely remodeled into a spacious modern 1.5 story country cottage on 3.5 peaceful private acres. One of the best things about this property is that it feels larger than its already generous size--there is no part of the property from which you see anyone else's house and it is near the end of a "no outlet" road with very little vehicular traffic. While off the beaten path, with downtown Covington and Abita Springs less than 15 minutes away and New Orleans an hour away the best of two worlds are captured: proximity to a bustling city life with a home base of peaceful country living. 3,224 sq ft (4 bed / 3 bath)

The home features a first floor master bedroom suite with a jetted soaking tub, gigantic walk in shower, double vanity sinks, walk in closet and its own entrance into the 1st floor laundry room. An open kitchen features granite counters, stainless steel appliances, under counter wine cellar and a walk in pantry. Warm bamboo floors throughout. Huge living and dining room. The breakfast room overlooks the pretty pond, porches and deck, and a lovely sun room with two sets of tall French doors and floor-to-ceiling windowed walls makes for a great second family room. 

In addition to the downstairs master, there is a a second bedroom / study and full bath downstairs and two more bedrooms and a third bathroom upstairs. A covered parking area and workshop/storage are adjacent to the house.
