A home with a view

The view doesn’t get much better than this. From the sparkling lake to the manicured greens, this Country Club of Louisiana listing takes full advantage of its setting on the fifth fairway.

Whether you’re inside or out, the lush landscaping makes an appealing backdrop to elegant dinner parties as well as casual get togethers on the patio.

Large windows stretch across the rear of the home, flooding it with light and bringing the beauty of the golf course’s abundant greenery into view.

In addition, a back porch that spans the width of the home and a shady patio offer lots of outdoor space for taking in the spectacular panorama.

Located on a cul de sac not far from CCL’s clubhouse, the four-bedroom, three-bath home features oak floors and high ceilings.

The front door, a beauty with beveled glass panes, opens into a foyer that soars to the two-story home’s full ceiling height.

To the left is the living room, its 11-foot ceilings making the space airy and bright.

Anchored by a gas fireplace, the room has two tall windows that look out on to the front porch. Built-in bookcases flank the fireplace, providing closed cabinetry below and open shelving above to house a television or favorite books and decorative pieces.

The living room opens into the adjoining dining room, creating a floor plan with an easy flow perfect for entertaining. A lovely crystal chandelier centers the dining room, which is banked by tall windows at the rear and on the side wall.

The kitchen, which features a breakfast area, also showcases the golf course view through three tall windows across the back. It has a center island, a built-in desk and a large walk-in pantry. A side door leads to the backyard patio, where there’s ample room to take a break and wave to the golfers as they go by.

At the opposite end of the house is the spacious master bedroom, which also boasts windows looking out on to the golf course vista.

The master bathroom, with a window that frames the fairway, has a seemingly mile-long run of counters, with a built-in vanity, two sinks and an incredible amount of storage. A whirlpool tub and shower line up on the opposite side.

To the rear is the master closet – a real showstopper that could easily house a small boutique. The built-ins are many, from a 10-drawer chest to tons of open shelving and more than enough hanging space.

Down the hall is the guest bathroom and another bedroom with a large walk-in closet.

The hall leads to the laundry room and the two-car garage, which also has a huge storage room.

Upstairs are two bedrooms and another full bath. Each of the bedrooms has cozy reading nooks tucked under the dormer windows that are also favored with the golf course view.

While both bedrooms have large walk-in closets, one of the rooms goes beyond that with a second closet. And there’s access to centrally heated and cooled attic space – a great spot for a hobby room.

The upstairs also has a bonus room, with more bookshelves built in for storage.
