â??A Hays Town homeâ?? in Baton Rouge off Highland Road near Bluebonnet. This legendary architect carefully designed the house to take full advantage of the 4.25 wooded acres surrounding it. Nature is abundant from every room in the house. The wide porches and balconies provide perfect places to enjoy the outdoors when the weather is willing (when its not, enjoy your full service commercial generator). The wood beams, floors, ceilings, doors and millwork were made from materials taken from an old warehouse in the French Quarter over 50 years ago. Being more rustic in style, the floor plan is open and the ceilings are tall - accented with heavy cypress beams and rafters. Walk onto the wide front porch and into a living room (22x30) with soaring ceilings, brick fireplace, large paned windows and dining area/sunroom with doors onto back porch. The 15inch wide pine plank floors are a rare find just waiting for more antiques or contemporary furnishings. Continuing into the dining room adjoining the â??feel goodâ?? kitchen laden with old cypress cabinets and island, ceilings and post. Large walk-in pantry with another walk-in closet can store everything necessary for a kitchen. This area is well serviced by hard tan brick floors worn over many years for that special patina. The bar area is a gathering place with ice maker, sink and cypress cabinets leading to a â??trophy roomâ?? which was an addition designed by Town to look in keeping with his original plan. Youâ??ll first notice the magnificent stone fireplace anchoring this room filled with natural light and cypress cross beams with lofty cathedral ceiling. The library adjoins this room with a wall of built-ins for books and/or collections. As you pass the French doors leading to the walled pool and spa, youâ??ll enter the two-story portion of the house. This property offers a unique opportunity to live in the heart of town secluded by woods in a one entry neighborhood.
