Tchefuncte Harbour Townhomes
Enjoy unobstructed views of the Tchefuncte River and protected wetlands.
This is truly a one-of-kind townhome residence on the Tchefuncte River in historic Downtown Madisonville where unobstructed views of the inner harbor, preserved wetlands, and the Tchefuncte River can be enjoyed from all rooms of the home. The owners spared no expense in their thoughtful renovation that took the property down to the studs, including replacing all insulation, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC components. As you enter the front door and pass the “forever” flooring of the garage, you enter the newly enclosed 1st floor “flex” space which can be used as a guest suite or a second entertaining area. It features marine-treated walls, storage, and a fully pre-plumbed bathroom with a pedestal sink. The full experience of river-front living is obvious on the 2nd and 3rd levels of the home, which are accessible via the insulated stairs that have custom iron railings and treads reclaimed from a vintage basketball court. The warm and spacious living room, kitchen, and bedrooms all feature gorgeous cypress ceilings and white oak floors that were carefully chosen because their very light-blonde, natural finish blends effortlessly into the unobstructed views of the serene Tchefuncte River and the protected wetlands just beyond. The wide covered balcony offers a panoramic view up and down the river, while the “No Wake Zone” keeps the murmur of boat engines to a minimum. Across from the stairs is a powder room that features a sliding cypress barn door, cypress accent wall, and a sleek sink with classic polished chrome fixtures and framing. The adjacent kitchen is as elegant as it is functional and is a chef’s delight. The custom cabinets and appliances, including an integrated refrigerator, were sourced locally by Designer Appliances. The thoughtful attention to detail is evident in such features as the Kohler jet-sweep faucet, and the full reverse-osmosis instant hot/cold water dispensers. Beyond the beautiful quartz island, the statement piece of the room is the intricate mosaic marble backsplash that is set within custom cypress brackets that support a horizontal cypress beam – simply stunning. Full wall “sliders” open to the spacious covered back porch that overlooks the private inner harbor and the covered boat slip below. The 3rd floor is home to the master and guest suites. The cypress ceiling and solid cypress beams of the master bedroom provide a dramatic and grand feeling and draws your eyes up to the high cathedral ceiling. The room offers custom plantation shutters and two custom closets, while the master bath features a wide vanity, spacious shower, and a soaking tub. Down the hall is the guest suite which boasts a bathroom of the same quality as the master, including laundry facilities and views of the inner harbor. The covered boat slip has been outfitted with new decking, dedicated storage for kayaks and paddle boards, a commercial grade 10,000 lb boat lift was added to the covered slip, and all inferior exterior ceiling and wall materials were replaced with hardy board. Tchefuncte Harbour Townhomes is a secure, gated community with a large pool, tennis courts, clubhouse, and additional slips are available for lease or purchase in the center pier of the harbor. Restaurants, museums, festivals, entertaining venues and all that Historic Downtown Madisonville has to offer are just a quick paddle board, kayak, or boat ride down river.
