6 Cardinal Lane

The Sanctuary

Mandeville, La

Impressive home with spectacular landscaping and a stunning backyard.

The mature and impeccably kept front gardens compliment the dramatic scale of the exterior façade to make this one of the most distinctive homes in the neighborhood. The impressive front entry begins with massive manicured landscaping and an elegant fountain that leads to the stone steps and double iron front doors that are framed with additional stone trim. The grand foyer is flanked by a substantial dining room on the right that is large enough for a full compliment of furniture, and a formal office with floor-to-ceiling custom cabinets and built-ins on the left. Both rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows with views of the gorgeous front yard. The warm artistic stained concrete flooring of the foyer and dining rooms extend to the great room that boasts a two-story ceiling, fireplace, and stunning views of the back porch and backyard oasis. Detailed and substantial mill work and trim, including arched entry ways, are featured throughout the first floor. Just beyond the great room is the kitchen, sitting room, and keeping room, all of which offer more views of the backyard. The kitchen is smartly designed with a large center island that seats four, granite counters, custom cabinets, walk-in pantry, and a hidden coffee station. The adjacent mud room with built-in desk and cabinets, counters, laundry and a private restroom for staff, are all hidden from the kitchen behind a pocket door, which offers an ideal space for caterers and staff when entertaining. On the other side of the great room is the master suite. The unique curved wall and windows opposite the bed offers a dramatic view of the backyard and pool, and makes this space special and serene. The master bath features stone counters, two vanities, two water closets, and two entrances into the walk-in shower. The large custom closet also has two entrances and is designed to easily accommodate two complete wardrobe sets. Custom iron railings lead the way to the spacious second floor that is home to three bedrooms with en-suite baths, a large home theater, plenty of storage, and a 12’ x 10’ flex space that can be a work-out, homework, or another sitting room. But by far, the most spectacular part of this home is the backyard oasis. The covered porch steps down to the large swimming pool that is anchored by cabanas on both sides and is framed by a 30’ landscape wall that offers complete privacy. The larger of the two cabanas is on the side of the pool next to the jacuzzi and has a wall-mounted television, bathroom, and outdoor kitchen that enhances this spectacular setting. Landscaping as mature as this takes 20 years to create and just isn’t found at homes in the newer phases of the neighborhood. Finally, the three-car garage offers plenty of storage options, including a large bonus room with counters, and a side entry door. 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.
