A Window to CCLA

The home at 17926 Augusta Pointe Court is a virtual window to the world around it, and the world around it is the beautiful golf course in the Country Club of Louisiana. Located near the end of a dead end street, this elegant home offers privacy with a view.

The home impresses from the start with a tall, arching louvered entryway not directly into the home, but into a New Orleans style brick courtyard from which the home is entered. A slate roof, copper gutters and whitewashed sack-finished bricks are timeless and maintenance free.

Antique heart pine floors much of the home’s first level. And this is not shiny new pine, but old, knotty and rough antique pine, finished exquisitely with gapped edges and a deep luster. The home, located in prestigious Parcel 14 of CCLA, has four bedrooms and four and one-half baths in 3,900 square feet of living space.

The home has elegance and style, and flows seamlessly from space to space. The kitchen, with more of the antique heart pine flooring, has a huge walk-in pantry and commercial appliances including a Garland stove with six gas burners and a large grill above double ovens. There are warming shelves and drawers, as well as a massive stainless hood above. The refrigerator is another stainless commercial product: a Traulsen refrigerator with drawers. The glass-front kitchen cabinetry is painted, and the large center island is topped with butcher’s block. There are two stainless sinks: a prep sink in the island and a triple sink on the countertop below a large window.

The final two words of the previous paragraph are key to what makes this home so attractive. There are lots of windows. Big. Beautiful. Wood windows. Just about every room has them. Macy’s storefront would be proud. And most of them overlook the first fairway of the CCLA golf course, which is one of the most scenic and well-kept courses in our area. You can be sure that with all these windows the home is gifted with plenty of natural light.

The first view visitors notice when they step through the brick courtyard into the home’s long foyer is through a wall of glass along the back of the great room. The windows frame the rear covered porch and its large brick arches overlooking the fairway. The great room also has a wide, floor-to-ceiling masonry fireplace with more whitewashed and sack-finished bricks.

Behind the great room is the formal dining room, which has another arched picture window to the golf course and butler’s pantry access to the kitchen. The keeping room has more big glass, but this time the view is of the private brick interior courtyard. Reminiscent of courtyards in some great old New Orleans homes, this enclosed brick gathering place has an entry at the foyer and at the keeping room, meaning parties can flow easily through the home, into the courtyard and back.

Meanwhile, the master suite in back has yet another huge window with a view. The thing about the windows in this home is they have a small number of large panes of glass; in this case the wall-sized master bedroom window has only 9 lights. The tile master bath has a 6-foot Jacuzzi tub and dual vanities under custom mirrors. A big shower is opposite the tub behind a curving glass block wall, and closets are at each end of the master bath.

Upstairs there are two more bedrooms, each with a full bath. The landing has elevated views of the brick courtyard. The home has three zoned A/C units and is bordered on three sides by a tall brick wall.
