Property description

The Marsh House is a unique home located on Bayou Liberty in Slidell. Bayou Liberty leads to Lake Pontchartrain and is one of the top scenic bayous in Louisiana. It's about a 15 minute ride by boat to the lake. The bayou is perfect for fishing, jet skiing, kneeboarding, or taking a leisurely cruise to see the old homes on the bayou. It is a bird sanctuary with bird feeders and purple martin house. Slidell is thirty minutes from New Orleans but has the feel of stepping back in time to a slower way of life. Bayou Liberty has the annual pirogue races in June, close enough to get into the Poker Runs, and Santa on the Bayou in December. There are many good restaurants and antique shops in Olde Towne.

The home is perfect for two living rooms with fireplaces ,a formal dining area, and a huge kitchen. It is a 3500 square foot home, so it is very spacious. There is a screened porch off the living room. The house is raised and above the house is an perfect place to watch the sun set, the moon rise and the idea place to catch the full moon. The house has a huge yard that is perfect for outdoor activities.

The Marsh House has a front and back porch which extends the length of the home. All the rooms open to the porches by French doors. Two of the bedrooms have king size, pillow-topped beds. There are two queen beds in two bedrooms and the last bedroom/office, has a futon.

There is a semi-private marina for two boats and an attached garage, in addition to the garage on the floor level. There is a public boat launch a few streets away. If you don't have a boat, there are places where pontoon boats can be rented. You can fish right off the dock. There is also a municipal fishing dock within a fifteen minute drive located on Lake Ponchartrain. There are also fishing charters available in the area that will put you on the famous speckled trout and redfish that the area is known for. There are many good restaurants with easy access as well as a really good fresh fish market that also sells the famous po boy sandwiches loaded with fried seafood of all varieties.

Guests are welcome to use the facilities at Chamale' Tennis an Social Club. It is located a few minutes drive from the house. There are four tennis courts, a large pool and a clubhouse to have your favorite beverage. Plan your own tennis event and end the day on the observatory watching the sunset.
There are two public golf courses within a fifteen minute drive as well as a multi-plex Imax theater, Sam's Club, and shopping malls.

The Marsh House is close to visit New Orleans or the Gulf Coast - about 30 minutes away. It's a wonderful home for family reunions or just getting friends together. Laissez bon temps roulez!
