Pecan Grove is modeled after the Houmas House, an 1828 Greek Revival Sugar plantation in Darrow, Louisiana. See Houmashouse.com for detailed information, pictures, and film. Houmas House is the site of many films, TV movies and commercials including "Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte" with Bette
Davis, and "Fletch Lives" with Chevy Chase. Pecan Grove was built on the site of an old pecan grove in 17.5 acres. It includes a 3 stall horse barn with out shed with sand foundation, loft, tack room, full bathroom and kitchen with sink, ice maker, and cabinetry for "barn parties". The foundation site for the house was engineered, inspected and tested by CML. The house was built by MG Construction.
Ten foot double cypress entry doors with sidelights and transoms are framed by custom made iron gas lanterns of the period. A wrap around porch on the east, south, and west sides of the house is floored in "Ipe" a Brazilian hardwood nicknamed "Ironwood" due to it's density, weight and insect and rot resistance. It required diamond tip drill bits to screw the wood planks down. Inderneath is concrete. This is also true of the second floor porch as well.
Overhead are period reproduction pendant lanterns which cast a warm welcoming glow at night. Ceiling fans on the east and west sides provide cooling breezes in warm weather. Porch ceilings are beadboard painted sky blue. Speakers in the ceiling on the west side allow you to enjoy music on the porch. French doors, which access each room on the main floor, for a total of 5, have working full length wood shutters with hand forged hinges and shutter dogs.
Exterior trim (especially note that on the belvedere and dormers) was hand cut to copy that on the Houmas House. Belvedere and dormers are roofed in copper.
This french country home is situated on a 4 acre lake lot. 16ft. wrought iron gated front door. Winding stair case with wrought iron spindles. Master bedroom features its own keeping room, washer/dryer connection, storm shelter, fireplace and covered back patio.
