If you’re looking for a country home with a little breathing room, there’s a three-bedroom cabin just off the Angola Road in the scenic hills of West Feliciana Parish that promises peaceful solitude. With a wide front porch overlooking a cleared landscape next to the woods, don’t be surprised when deer and other wildlife wander into view.
The property at 9288 Rudolph Davis Road totals 7.3 acres, with a metal-roofed Acadian style home overseeing it all. The home is dressed in all cypress siding, with the interior consisting of three main materials: pine, pine and pine. The walls are Eastern White Pine, the ceilings are Eastern White Pine, the cabinetry is Eastern White Pine, and the 8-foot interior doors are made of the same wood. The staircase is made of…heart pine.
The home resembles an Acadian-style mountain cabin, complete with a detached carport and massive steel workshop on a concrete slab. The front of the home has a wide porch of rough hewn cypress planks on the floor, wall and ceiling. The porch overlooks a cleared portion of the wooded property.
The main room inside has a ceiling that soars to 20 feet. Included in this room is the kitchen, a breakfast area and the living room. While the doors, ceilings and walls all over the house are pine, the floors are a matching ceramic tile. Above this great room, a second-floor balcony stretches the length of the house, giving anyone up here a bird’s eye view of what’s happening downstairs.
The kitchen has an island, counters and a bar topped with matching ceramic tile. The pine cabinetry has fluorescent accent lighting above and below. Windows in this great room are on both levels, allowing lots of natural light to filter into the home. A 6-burner gas Dacor cook top is on the island, and a pair of GE Monogram ovens is in one wall. A double stainless sink is below a window in the kitchen.
At the other end of this great room from the kitchen is the living room, which has an exit to the carport and workshop. A wonderful stacked-stone fireplace rises to the tall ceiling in the living room, adding to the warmth and coziness here. Upgraded light fixtures are used, including sconces along the wall and stairwell.
Behind the great room, the master suite and Bedroom No. 2 are located at opposite ends of a hallway. The master suite has his-and-hers pine closets, and the pine master bath has two vanities with upgraded fixtures, and a tile shower with a rain head.
Upstairs, bedroom No. 3 overlooks the kitchen, and a home office is at the upper landing. A full bath services the office and bedroom. The home’s laundry room is in a climate-controlled room near the detached carport. The energy-efficient home also has a security system.
Meanwhile, a 40 x 40 steel workshop with a pair of roll-top doors is on the other side of the carport. The workshop has a full bath and an office, plus plenty of benches and working space. The current owner reports the roll-top doors will accommodate an RV.
With only one neighbor across the way, this home offers country solitude and a peaceful lifestyle not far from the city. If that’s what you’re pining for, Coldwell Banker ONE agent Brenda Garza would be happy to arrange a tour.
