An elegant residence nestled among the trees of Chefuncta Country Club, in a quiet location on Hummingbird Road in the St. The Honorable Tammany Parish.
This spacious Covington abode features five bedrooms, four full and two half baths, and over 6,500 square feet of living space with unique and inviting aspects throughout.
This is country living on an enviable scale in a relatively new home (built in the last six years), for $2.315 million.
And from the outside in, there’s a lot to admire.
A stone car park on the curved road marks the entrance to the house, framed by massive columns and arched windows, all of which hint at the ingenious mix of materials that can be found inside.
Old Chicago brick lines the foyer, flooded with light from huge windows and doors. The brickwork is repeated on the back wall behind the great room. Barnwood oak floors run throughout the living areas, while reclaimed pine columns, recovered from a 19th-century warehouse, add interest through the area.
Off the foyer is a spacious formal dining room, with floor-length windows, custom lighting, and an impressive crown molding.
The cozy great room runs through the house and boasts a two-sided fireplace with carved mantelpiece and surround that opens into the kitchen.
Spacious and bright, the commercial quality kitchen features a spacious center island with Calcutta Gold counters and backsplash, Thermador appliances, and display cabinets, with inset ceiling of reclaimed wood and arched bay window. To the side, behind an elegant wrought iron and glass door, is a wine cabinet.
The master bedroom, which has another two-sided fireplace, opens to a spa-like bathroom, complete with bathtub and standing shower area, flanked by ample counters.
Recessed cypress panels line the intimate office space, with custom cabinets for storage.
Expanding the entertaining aspects of the home are two unique spaces. With plush seating for eight, the media room doubles as a home theater complete with wet bar. In the stone backyard, an outdoor kitchen is adjacent to a spacious living room with an additional fireplace. In the open backyard there is a large swimming pool area.
