The classic Acadian style home at 3125 Pleasant Point Blvd. in University Club Plantation has a seamless 5,018-square-foot floor plan filled with timeless elements like Old St. Louis bricks, oak floors and Italian chandeliers.
Lots of extra touches, too, are included, like fluted cased openings, interior brick archways and a saltwater pool courtyard with a spa. It’s altogether a terrific package in upscale University Club Plantation.
In front, the home has a brick-edged driveway leading to a four-car garage hidden from view behind the home. The front yard is nicely groomed, with mature landscaping and river birches. A curving sidewalk from a mid-point parking area leads to either a side entrance or the elevated brick front porch lined with six white columns.
Oak planks floor the foyer and the living room, as well as a formal dining room to the left and a home office to the right of the foyer.
A Murano Italian chandelier illuminates the formal dining area, and Old St. Louis bricks floor the kitchen, which is separated from the dining room by a butler’s pantry.
The kitchen has beautiful cypress cabinetry, 3 cm granite counters and a bar peeking into the living room. The bar has a wine refrigerator below and is topped by see-through glass-front cabinetry. The appliance package is stainless GE Monogram, with a 5-burner gas cook top above an oven, as well as a microwave/oven combo to one side.
Exposed beams in the kitchen ceiling
transition into the adjacent breakfast room. Behind the kitchen is the home’s guest suite, comprised of a bedroom with a large closet and a handicapped-accessible full bath.
Beyond the foyer is the home’s living room, which has an overlooking second-floor balcony that crosses below a 20-foot ceiling. A tall John McArthur faux stone fireplace is on the right wall of the living room, and four archways provide access to other rooms – two to the kitchen and two to a really nice keeping/sun room with more Old St. Louis brick floors and views of the pool courtyard.
The master suite can be accessed via the keeping/sun room or the living room. The master bedroom has a French door exit to a private brick courtyard overlooking the pool and spa.
The travertine and marble master bath is opulent, with a double-sized walk-in shower and a jetted tub below plantation shutters. Two large marble-topped vanities are featured in the master bath, which has cherry cabinetry.
The master bedroom provides access to his-and-her closets, which like most of the closets in the home have light-switched doors.
The home has two separate upstairs areas, one a bonus/entertainment room above the four-car garage, and the other up the stairs in the entry foyer.
The main upstairs area has three bedrooms and two baths, as well something
every two-story home should have: A
laundry chute that drops clothing directly into the first-floor laundry room.
Finally, the rear pool courtyard has a covered porch, a saltwater gunite pool with brick-edged decking and an aluminum fence to separate it from a large, green back yard. A perimeter privacy fence surrounds it all.
This beautiful University Club Plantation home will be kept open today from 2-4 p.m., so don’t miss your chance to see it.
