Description: Stunning French chateau copied in detail from a chateau in Normandy, including "humps' in the roof, which were in the original building's roof. Exquisite details include cypress and pine floors and hand-hewn beams, soaring ceilings, beautiful door hardware, and a pool all set on 6+ acres with frontage on the historic Bayou Teche. The formal dining room, with its beamed ceiling and bay window, is spacious enough for a banquet table, and boasts a fireplace. The formal parlor has a cathedral ceiling overlooked by a minstrel's gallery. In the kitchen, the gas range is commercial-size, there are two ovens, warming drawers, and stainless steel and granite counter tops, with room for an informal dining table. The family den, overlooking the bayou, hosts a cypress bar, room for game tables and family furniture, and is open to the principal formal rooms through French doors. An office adjacent to the main hall has its own full bath, complete with shower, and the downstairs hosts the master suite (also with a fireplace) and a guest bedroom (with a fireplace). Upstairs are two large bedrooms and two baths one with a painted porcelain sink, the other elegantly set off by marble flooring and beautiful gold fixtures. In addition to the pool, there is a tennis court, as well as an apartment in the building housing the garage. Truly, this is a one-of-a-kind property in Acadiana!
