    Description

    This 4 bedroom 2 bath has original wood floors and windows and doors, transoms work.This home sits on a corner lot on almost a full acre, you have a storage shed with electricity and plenty of room for all your toysThere are no HOA fees, and plenty of room for a pool if you put one in.Although this is St Martinville, it may not score the highest with the school grades but the teachers are invested in their students and this is a community, parents and their involvement is what makes these schools great! This is small town living with walking distance to restaurants, eclectic stores, and parks.You are 10 minutes to WalMart and Home Depot and 20 minutes to Lafayette.This home is worth the driveAll four bedrooms are large with closets, a rare treat with this history. You can't help but be awed by the 12'baseboards and 13' ceilings, the ORIGINAL wood floors have been refinished beautifully, yet still occasionally creak, as any proper old house should. "SHIP LAP" was also an ORIGINAL treasure found throughout. The magnificent built ins are in perfect condition and ready to hold your treasures and history! The two full baths offer CLAW FOOT TUBS, you will feel like you are at the spa. But... with so many treasures to love, my FAVORITE has to be the SLEEPING PORCH.... At the peak of summer in the South, there is no possession more valued than the air conditioner, (this home boasts two), on those days when the thermostat hits 90 before 10 am, you probably think to yourself... how did people survive before air conditioning? Survive they did as air conditioners were not common until after World War ll - which meant the home could be one of the hottest places if it lacked cross ventilation. And while you could escape to a body of water or a shaded park during the day, sleeping inside at night could be downright miserable, this is why many early 20th century Southern homes have what is known as a sleeping porch. The sleeping porch was typically accessible through one of the bedrooms, in our case- three doors access this fabulous room! Located to catch as much cross breeze as possible, even better they might stretch the length of the house, to have three sides exposed to cooler nighttime breezes. The whole family, (but especially the children), would all take refuge on the sleeping porch. Spending those balmy Southern nights on cots or mattresses on the floor- The sleeping porch offers a Queen size swinging bed to lull your worries away, a place to make your own... whether yoga, dance or just your retreat from the day! The huge ACADIAN style front and side porch are perfect for rocking or dancing the night away, you can even hear the church bells from there. Beautiful landscaping covers this one acre of land with ample room for a pool or just enjoying playtime with friends and family. The carport/garage is ready for your boat or vehicle and there is a nice storage shed in the back which can be used for a shop or just additional space. St. Martinville offers so much charm- from the Mardi Gras parades, The Old Teche Theatre, The Duchamp Opera House to the Pepper Festival.... living in the " Petit Paris", is small Southern living at its best!!! You are within walking distance to restaurants and fun, eclectic shops or antique browsing. This is truly a HOME to LOVE where you LIVE! Schedule your showing now and WELCOME HOME
