The Sanctuary

Mandeville, La

Stately home on a quiet cul-de-sac.

This stately home is nestled on an estate-sized homesite in a quiet cul-de-sac in Mandeville’s premier gated community. The long white oak tree flanked driveway leads to the impressive iron-railings on the steps and landing of the front banquet. The wide front door leads to the welcoming foyer and curved staircase. The right wing of the house features the formal dining room, which flows into the heart of this home – the spacious and open kitchen, breakfast, and keeping rooms. This chef’s kitchen has an impressive GE Monogram range that features a double oven, six burners, griddle, and a large warming shelf. The island seats four comfortably, and there is plenty of storage available in the custom cabinets. The keeping room can accommodate large furniture, has custom built-in cabinets, and a double-sided fireplace that connects to the adjacent living room, which is an ideal casual setting for kids of all ages. Just down the hall is a guest suite and laundry room. The left wing of the house is home to the more formal living room that boasts floor-to-ceiling windows and impressive views of both the front yard and the swimming pool. Just beyond is the master suite featuring two vanities with marble counters, two walk-in closets, and a travertine tile walk-in shower. The primary stairs lead to two large bedrooms that share a Jack-and-Jill bath. The secondary stairs are just off of the mud room, and lead to another guest suite with a full bath that is currently being used as a game room and home theater. But by far, the most spectacular part of this home is the backyard oasis. Two covered porches lead to the beautiful chlorine pool and hot tub which are surrounded by plenty of decking, a covered outdoor kitchen, and a separate fountain. This estate-sized homesite offers plenty of grass behind and to the left and right of the pool, and the lush, mature landscaping provides a high level of privacy. The vast majority of the exterior of this home is brick and the roof was replaced in late 2021. 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.
