This house is built and designed like no other house in Lafayette and is located on one of the most desirable and sought-after streets. With its steel frame structure, Old Chicago Brick, and antique old cypress floors, doors and windows, this house is designed for the long term! Sitting on the largest parcel on Shannon Road of almost 1.5 acres and backing up to the new Moncus Park, it is easy to enjoy the natural beauty of Lafayette, while located at its center. At the entrance, one finds a beautiful view of a two-story foyer with a free standing spiral staircase made with oak handrails and a French antique chandelier. The first floor provides a layout made for entertaining with a minimum of 9-foot ceilings throughout and up to 14-foot ceilings in some rooms. The flow from each room provides ample space with a large living room at its center and wet bar. However, on those days that require silence, the large cypress doors on each room provide an opportunity to silence off a portion of the house while others continue to be active. The second floor includes 5 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms as well as a center room that can be used for a playroom, gym, or theatre. Stepping outside there is a beautiful brick courtyard enclosed by a brick wall with a fountain and access gates to the remaining large backyard. There is plenty of parking and storage between the 2 car carport garage, the detached single garage, and the 4-5 open parking spots on drive way. The list of amenities and renovations goes on! Please give a call to the listing agent for more information!
