Property description

If you enjoy nature and want to experience the uniqueness of life on the bayou, this is the perfect vacation home. Located on seven acres this rustic home on a cypress swamp. It is a prime area for birding and wild life. You can fish from your back porch. The style of the house is reminiscent of the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, complete with a rainwater-fed pond underneath the deck that adjoins the two separate wings of the lower level. It is located on seven acres with natural foliage with a wooden pathway to the dock that is on Bayou Liberty. The front of the cedar home is covered in vines and faces the pool, the back of the home faces the bayou. Lake Pontchartrain is a short boat ride away where speckled trout is the desired catch of the day. Bring your boat and use the boat house, or use the flat boat to troll down the canal which leads to the bayou.

The home is located on two levels. The lower level is handicap accessible via a ramp . The lower level is divided into two wings by the walkway over the pond and stairs to the upper level. There is a Corinthian wind chime hanging from the stairs near a large fountain in the pond.
The north wing has one queen sized bedroom with a private balcony, and a small second bedroom with a double bed. This wing also has a full bathroom. The south wing has one queen size bed, living room with a fireplace, large handicap accessible bathroom and fully furnished kitchen on the glass porch. This level has the quickest access to the pool. The pool is surrounded by hedges on one side and the home on the other. The water pool is shaded by an oak tree, and remains cool throughout the summer. Each level has a washer and dryer.

The spacious master bedroom on the upper level has a king size memory foam bed, walk in closet,and full sized bathroom. and private balcony overlooking the bayou.This bedroom also has a 42' HDTV with most of the movie channels.
The living room has three sofas (one a futon), a wood burning fireplace, a 61 inch HDTV, and a large balcony overlooking the bayou, perfect for sunsets, or coffee in the mornings. It is also a great place from which to birdwatch. Blue Herons, Egrets, Osprey, woodpeckers, eagles, and migratory ducks are just a few of the birds which have been sited here. On this level, all the windows face the bayou. Adjacent to the kitchen and living room is a formal dining room.
The home is close enough to visit New Orleans or just stay at home and enjoy the serenity of the bayou and pool. It is the perfect place for family reunions or getting together with a few friends..girls getaway...or a relaxing rendezvous for a fishing trip. For larger parties, please see the listing for the Marsh House which is just down the road, or just down the bayou depending on how you travel.
