                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1998

                  About the owner: I'm born and raised in New Orleans. I currently work in New Orleans but live on the North Shore of New Orleans. My family (three children) grew up in this house until Katrina took it away. 8 years later, the kids are all in college, we live in another house but have just finished bringing this one back. We can't forget the wonderful memories, the great times or the tremendous ambiance of this place. So we use it when we can. But you can use it when we can't!! Don't miss out on the Bayou Moon from the rear porch. It is truly special..

                  Why the Owner Chose Slidell:
                  We bought it because it was on the navigable bayou (5 mins to Lake Pontchartrain by boat), we could water ski, boat, fish, crab or just enjoy the awesome wildlife and nature that the bayou affords. We bought it because of the 8 acres (which we cleared and now manicure), and the 30 plus oak trees with Spanish moss, some of which are over 200 years old. We've played many football, soccer, and baseball games in the large fields. Drive a golf ball or fly a kite! We named it Bayou Moon, because for all its splendor, at the end of the day when you sit on the back porch and look up - you see this awesome moon reflecting on the bayou! This area is a historic Creole settlement that dates back into the 1700's. So after we bought it, we got to know our wonderful neighbors, many of whom are ancestors of the original settlers. FYI before we could rebuild this house after Katrina, it needed to be raised and we just completed this 'raise and renovate' six months ago.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  There are so many unique features of Bayou Moon. The nature, the wildlife, the expanse of the acreage, the oak trees, the privacy, the water frontage, the water sports, the fishing and crabbing, the boat dock, the swimming pool, the house with its incredible views, the porches and decks, the gameroom but most of all the Bayou Moon!
