Surrounded by beautiful, cultivated gardens and a circular pond, this property was the historic plantation of French/Indian coureur de bois, Jean-Batiste Andre dit laFleur. This home is listed in the Louisiana Register of Historic Places/Homes and was featured in Southern Accents magazine. The Painted Dining hall is surrounded by 4 over 4 paned double windows, French Creole wainscoting, hardwood floors, and a magnificent hand-painted celestial mural surrounded by trompe d'oeil walls of faux bousillage. An elegant chandelier with complimenting wall sconces and a huge goldleaf French Rococco mirror add a fabulous openess to this elegant room. The huge four-paned glassed back door opens out to a small back porch and leads to a beautiful little herb garden with brick sidewalk. The kitchen is spacious with natural gas/electric stove hook up, vinyl tiled flooring, double stainless steal sink with above/below cabinetry and wainscoated walls. Air-conditioning units serve each room and natural gas space heaters are part of the unique historic period. The foyer complimented on right and left sides by elegant French doors, is long and elegant with wainscoted walls of faux bousillage in bright and muted Creole colors and rare full length heart of pine flooring. A magnificent French chandelier is necklaced by an equally magnificent plaster medallion. To the right of the corridor is a double parlor with elegant fluted mantle-piece and gas-fueled fire logs ensconced into the original chimney with its footing of original white brick hearth.
