The home at 7550 N. Eisworth Ave. in Central’s Village at Magnolia Square is a blend of Old New Orleans and Old Charleston styles, with an emphasis on comfort inside and out. Even the patio and outdoor kitchen are air conditioned, so you can imagine what the inside is like. The luxury begins seven brick steps up from North Eisworth Avenue in this offering from Spicer Construction. Hand-scraped hickory floors, plantation shutters on nearly every window, coffered ceilings, tankless hot water heaters, a sound system and foam insulation are standard in this certified energy star home.
The Village at Magnolia Square is located off Lovett Road in the City of Central. There are 90 lots in the first two filings, and another 60 or so are planned in the third filing, scheduled for next year. Lots range in size from 40 x 125 feet up to 70 x 160 feet. The homes have rear-loading garages on alleyways, which will preserve the charming elevated facades along each street.
The four-bedroom, three-bath North Eisworth home sits tall on the narrow lot, with a wide brick front porch and veranda above. Inside, the hand-scraped hickory floors stretch from the foyer through the living room and dining area to the kitchen, which is floored in 24-inch porcelain tile. The living room has a fireplace with a marble tile surround and a McArthur mantle of faux stone. A dining area separates the living room from the kitchen, which is framed by antique pine beams. Stainless appliances, stained cypress cabinets and a slab granite island are featured in the kitchen, which has exposed beams above. Travertine backs the counters, which are topped with granite slabs. A walk-in pantry is nearby with double antique doors.
Off the living room is the guest suite, where there’s a bedroom and a full bath with granite counters, upgraded fixtures and, surprisingly, a whirlpool tub. The master suite in back has an elegant and expensive coffered ceiling with crown molding, along with an elegant master bath floored in 20-inch ceramic tile. Another tub is here, this one an air bubbler tub that sits below a beautiful leaded glass window. The glass-walled shower is huge, with body sprays. Double vanities on granite counters are below a tall custom mirror near a wall heater. Even the master closet in this home is luxurious – two chandeliers illuminate the large L-shaped closet, which has an extensive organizer system and two dressers.
While luxury abounds inside, the outdoor spaces are certainly not neglected. Slate tile floors the patio, which has a thermostat for the outdoor air-conditioning and heat. The two-car garage and boat port also have A/C. The outdoor kitchen features granite counters, a stainless DCS outdoor grill, a wine refrigerator and a stainless sink. Beaded boards are a nice touch on the ceiling.
Upstairs, two bedrooms are serviced by a full bath, and a media room has an exit to the second floor veranda. Finally, the home has a Sonos wireless speaker system, sprinklers and gutters.
The Village at Magnolia Square – a traditional neighborhood development with curbs and gutters, street lamps, and sidewalks – also will have light commercial development for the benefit of homeowners. Don’t miss your chance to see this beautiful home; it will be kept open from 1-4 p.m. today.
