This custom, architect designed, one owner home is situated on 4.8 acres on a cul de sac of a quiet neighborhood. Fruit bearing trees as well as numerous shade trees dot the landscape. The neighborhood entrance is at the end of a dead end street, so there is zero through traffic. The house was built on an engineered compacted A4 dirt pad that brought it 2 feet above natural grade and over a foot above the road. The slab is an engineered post tensioned monolithic slab. There is a half-acre stocked pond behind the house. The dirt from the pond was kept on site and used to back fill and contour the property. This property sheds rain water very, very quickly. It is not in a flood zone and has never flooded. At the left rear of the property is a 30X40 workshop with a 30X20 covered porch. There is a full bathroom in the shop. A pump shed houses a three inch water well with submersible pump that is used to maintain the water level in the pond and irrigation. Four aerators in the pond are driven by a pump in the pump shed. Behind the shop is a 500 gallon propane tank that supplies the gas for the kitchen range in both kitchens. There are gas outlets in the living room and master bedroom for heating stoves, ventless fireplaces, etc. A gas outlet near the electrical panel outside can be hooked up to a whole house generator, which was the reason for the oversized propane tank. An established privacy hedge gives the homesite a secluded, private atmosphere even though town amenities are only five minutes away. Lawco provides water service; Cox supplies our internet, television service and phone service. AT&T is available. We have underground electrical service to the house from the pole supplied by Cleco and there is a street light that floods the front yard. Sewerage is handled by a high quality, high capacity sewerage treatment plant. Our home has over 4700 square feet of living area, over 6000 square feet under roof, a two car garage with attic access and attic storage, a twenty foot wide by 120 foot concrete driveway, a 450 square foot porch and a 360 square foot patio covered by a pergola lit by decorative globe string lights. Everything on this house is over-engineered with complete solid sheeting of all walls, 400 amp electrical supply with 3 subpanels, ethernet plus coax wiring throughout and commercial grade wiring.
