Property description

If you are looking for a quiet place to get away, this is it. The house has a rustic feel with a wonderful screened porch which has two tables, chairs, hammock and porch swing. There is usually a breeze blowing through the porch and the sounds of the birds and wind chimes are very relaxing. It's the place where everyone spends the evenings relaxing and listening to nature. There is another deck with a table and chairs and barbeque pit.

The house is spacious enough to accommodate family reunions or a group of friends getting together. There are other homes of various sizes if other homes are needed for large groups. It is close enough to visit New Orleans, and a great place to come home and relax.

The Porch House is a raised, cedar, Acadian style home with a 42 ft. porch and tin roof. It has ceramic tile in the living, dining and kitchen areas. There are four bedrooms and three baths (one pillow top king bed and a queen size bed downstairs and a queen and full upstairs in one bedroom and a queen in the other upstairs bedroom ). There is a loft/nook which has two twin beds, with a desk separating the two beds. The bedrooms have a taupe colored carpet. The kitchen has ash cabinets with an island perfect for entertaining. It is uniquely and comfortably decorated.The Porch House is not new and far from sterile, but it truly sparkles with memories and great energy of those that have visited before.

The Porch House is located near Bayou Liberty on a dead-end street in a secure, private area, yet, it is only two miles away from Olde Town Slidell. Some activites to plan are: The Antique Street Fair in October and April; Arts Evening held in November; Mardi Gras parades (family oriented and begin in Slidell before the New Orleans parades); The Slidell Heritage Festival held in July with fireworks over Bayou Bonfouca, and the Crawfish Cook-Off is in July. Besides the quaint shops in Olde Towne, there are many good restaurants, including Palmettos on the Bayou, La Provence, Assuntas and more casual dining at The Bicycle Shop and Southside, to name a few. A short drive away, on the west side of the parish is Covington, Mandeville and Madisonville. There are many interesting shops and festivals in this area, with the Wooden Boat Festival being highly recommended.
Bay St. Louis and Pass Christian is less than an hour away...where the day can be spent enjoying the sun and sand, or enjoying the arts along the Bay.
If you want to bring your boat, or rent a boat or kayak, and explore Bayou Bonfouca, Bayou Liberty or Lake Pontchartrain, there is a boat launch and boat slip a few miles away.

There is a public boat launch at Heritage Park in the heart of Slidell a few miles away, and a private boat slip available in a waterfront subdivision. There are many different types of fish to catch in the Lake as well as take advantage of kneeboarding, etc.

Chamale' Tennis and Social Club is a short distance away. It has four tennis courts, a large swimming pool and a friendly Clubhouse. A week pass comes with the rental of the home. There are several nearby golf courses - Pinewood, Royal and Oak Harbor. .
Slidell is about 25 miles from Downtown New Orleans, home of the French Quarter and casinos. It is about 30 miles from Bay St. Louis/Waveland area and an hour away from Biloxi/Gulfport area.
The Gulf Coast has many interesting places to visit and has made great progress in rebuilding since Katrina. There are many casinos in Biloxi/Gulfport, but the closest one is near Bay St. Louis.

This home is close enough to New Orleans to be a tourist in the daytime, and come home to relax in a quiet community. It is also centrally located to experience the many little different towns in the surrounding areas. For more information on current events, the Slidell Chamber of Commerce has a website that can give more details.
