Property Description


Single Family Detached

Nestled in the heart of Cajun Land in the historic town of Washington (settled in 1720) is the Country House. Origionally built in 1903 by famous River Boat Captain and former mayor of Washington Gerard Carrier, this property is a step back in time. Opened as a bed and breakfast/residence in 1992, it is listed on the National Register of Historic places. Set on a scenic 3/4 acre lot, this unique property includes the main big house, a utility building, workshop and two special guest cottages. The main house features 4BR, 3BA, formal living room, formal dining room, kitchen, sunroom, a lovely entry hall with the origional handcrafted staircase and three inviting outside covered porches to enjoy the peaceful surroundings. The first guest cottage was origionally the kitchen of the main house, now a comfortable retreat complete with a kitchen and roomy bathroom. The second cottage dates back to pre-civil war, offering a downstairs living area and upstairs loft bedroom accented with an antique clawfoot bathtub. The grounds of the Country House are in a park-like setting planted with a variety of numerous mature trees and bushes including live oak, magnolia, camillia, pear, sweet olive, japanese plum, azalea, crepe myrlte, gardenias, palm, oleander, persimmon, and kamquat. It is conveniently located with walking distance to local businesses and attractions in Washington. Also, within a few minutes distance of I-49, the Country House is ideally located for a successful bed and breakfast business or for a residential commute to nearby cities.
