Quintessential A. Hayes Town inspired Acadian home.
Nestled behind magnolia, pine and oak trees sits this quintessential A. Hayes Town inspired Acadian home in the heart of Mandeville’s premier gated community, The Sanctuary. The wide front wood steps lead to the over-sized front porch gallery that showcases the large windows, full-length operational shutters, an antique cypress front door, and of course a swing. Once inside, Civil War era reclaimed heart pine floors run throughout the generous living, dining, kitchen, and master suite, and have acquired the perfect amount of patina to create a refined yet comfortable environment. The kitchen, bar and breakfast rooms feature cypress cabinets and walls of large windows that overlook the side entrance, back porch gallery, and courtyard. The antique brick walls of the hallway just beyond the kitchen lead to a cozy office with a corner view of the courtyard, a powder room, and the master suite which includes an office with unobstructed views of the pool and courtyard. The master bath has been updated with a claw tub, new shower and flooring, has two custom walk-in closets, and offers breathtaking views of the private back yard. Pass the huge wall of windows that overlook the courtyard to access the guest suite wing of the home that features a living room, powder room, three bedrooms, two baths and a second floor porch that overlooks the courtyard, pool, and all of the backyard. Of course, this entire home is designed around the Spanish-inspired courtyard that contributes to the south-Louisiana charm of the home with its pool, lush landscaping, slate flooring, sugar kettle, and another large gallery porch. There is still plenty of yard space for pets and children behind the courtyard and there is an over-sized three-car garage on the right side of the property. Take the 3D Virtual Tour to get a fully immersive experience of this spectacular home. The Sanctuary is an environmentally planned community only minutes from The Causeway Bridge and home to miles of nature trails, a Health & Activity Center, fitness center, tournament-size swimming pool, three tennis courts, a ball field, and an active homeowner’s association.
