French Style in University Club Plantation

The stucco and brick home at 3125 Coates Crossing in University Club Plantation is a beautiful French style residence with heart pine floors, tall ceilings and warm cypress cabinetry. It’s all packaged nicely in one of south Baton Rouge’s premier golf communities.

University Club Plantation is an upscale development south of Bluebonnet off Nicholson Drive where brick driveway aprons line curb-and-gutter streets with New Orleans style lamp posts. Most of the yards are large and immaculately landscaped, and this home is no exception.

A tall arched front entry invites guests inside, where longleaf heart pine flooring stretches left into the formal dining room and ahead into the living room. A nice 8-light chandelier illuminates the dining area and a granite tile fireplace is in the living room. Built-in cabinetry is to the right of the fireplace, which has a matching wood mantle. There’s a wide, tall window with a transom overlooking the back yard.

A long breakfast room joins the living room and kitchen, making this whole area the heart of family activities in the home. Ceramic tiles floor the breakfast room and kitchen. An angling two-level bar separates the living room and breakfast room from the kitchen, which has warm cypress cabinetry, some with glass fronts. The bar is opposite angling countertops in this irregular-shaped kitchen, and the geometry works well. Granite tile tops counters as well as the bar. There is also a beautiful cypress hood above a 5-burner GE Profile gas cook top. Double wall ovens are topped by a microwave in a stacked arrangement nearby. Florescent lighting above and below the cabinetry provides just the right amount of ambient light, and a small butler’s pantry is conveniently located between the kitchen and formal dining room.

Behind the kitchen are a guest bedroom and full bath, as well as the laundry room, a side exit to the driveway and the exit into the two car garage.

The carpeted master bedroom, meanwhile, is in back with views of the back yard. The master bath has a tile floor, a walk-in shower and dual vanities separated by a whirlpool tub. The focal point in the bath, however, is a beautiful stained and leaded glass window with a fleur de lis design.

Near the front of the home are two more bedrooms that share a Hollywood bath. It’s a well-designed and flowing layout. In back, there’s a covered aggregate porch with tall bushes along the property line.

The home also has double pane windows and a security system. And of course neighborhood amenities include an 18-hole golf course, a clubhouse, a pool and tennis courts.

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.
