Gorgeous home on a large corner lot in the coveted Southdowns neighborhood! This 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom beauty has been tastefully updated to retain much of its original character. Upon arrival you'll notice the enclosed front porch with original windows and French doors on the far wall, which open to the spacious living area featuring lovely wood floors, a brick fireplace, and large windows for plenty of natural light. The living area opens to the huge, updated kitchen via an original cased archway, creating a perfect flow for entertaining. The kitchen has plenty of counter and cabinet space as well as tall ceilings, double wall ovens, gas cooktop, a huge island, and a skylight. The master suite is set towards the back of the home, allowing for both privacy and lovely views of the large backyard. The spa-like ensuite bathroom has been updated with a double marble vanity, separate soaking tub, and huge marble-tiled shower. There are also 3 additional bedrooms, another full bathroom, a separate laundry room, and a huge bonus room with French doors walking out to the backyard. Outside you'll find a double carport, covered porch area, a nice sized workshop/storage area with built-ins, and large privacy fenced yard. The home is within walking distance to the LSU lakes, parade routes, and St. Aloysius Catholic Church; close to Sprouts and Trader Joe s; and convenient to lots of great shopping, restaurants, Perkins Road and I-10.
