Hargroder Real Estate Group presents a truly unique one of a kind custom Early Americana home on historic Bayou Teche. Live oaks and cypress trees abound on this 1.5 acre lot near Opelousas. The 11 yr old home is built to Miami-Dade spec to withstand major hurricanes. The home is 100% framed in #1 grade Douglas Fir and finished with HardiPlank fiber cement siding. Exterior walls are filled with spray-in closed cell foam for superior energy efficiency. The one and a quarter inch thick roof is covered with architectural shingles and is double hurricane strapped. The home sits atop 30 concrete 9 sq ft cubes finished in brick. These sit on 30 ten ft deep pilings. Porch floors and ceilings are constructed with 80 yr old reclaimed antique heart of pine beams and boards. 16 Pella Architect double hung argon gas filled
dual pane windows immerse the home in light. The exterior doors are custom hand hewn Texas mesquite with Emtech handsets. The Early American design continues throughout the interior of the
home with every wall and ceiling covered in hand selected northern Michigan forest tongue and groove end matched 1 x 8 knotty pine boards. All knotty pine is placed on top of 3/4" plywood resulting in an 1 3/4 inch thick finish. All interior walls are filled with spray-in closed cell foam to eliminate echoes.
Baseboards and window trim are 60 yr old antique reclaimed pine. Following through with the Early Americana design, all corners are square cut. There are no miter cuts. Stair treads are 4 in thick cut
from the same heart of pine beams used on the exterior. Hardware throughout the home is hand forged iron all made in America. Interior doors, cabinetry, and vanities are custom knotty pine tongue in groove. Copper sinks throughout. The focal point in the living room is the custom entertainment center constructed from the same antique heart of pine beams joined with 6 in railroad spike nails. The home is heated and cooled with a new state of the art Carrier Infinity variable speed heat pump. A 12kw
Rheem whole house generator will run the entire home in the event of a power outage. A 900 sq ft workshop that can accommodate 3 phase equipment sits at the edge of the property.
