    Description

    Nestled on the banks of the Bayou Teche, stands a home of historic grace and timeless beauty. Built in the 1880's, this prominent estate is the former home of Frederick Larned Gates. Step into a classic example of Louisiana architecture where original character blends seamlessly with updated design. The expansive front porch welcomes you to a cool afternoon along Main Street. While dusk sets in, enter the Great Room through your choice of French doors. As you walk along the original oak floors, each room flows into the next with an ambiance of elegance and charm. The first floor features a modern kitchen boasting cypress floors and ceiling, a dining room that has held a century of dinner parties, a great room, a sitting room, a bedroom suite and a master wing. The second floor holds anextensive storage room, 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms, one of which was recently remodeled. The grounds showcase nature's artistry through its landscaping, fruit trees, historic Gebert Live Oak on the front lawn, relaxing shade throughout and a picturesque view of the bayou. From the courtyard, take a stroll along the grounds in the soothing park-like setting. This estate is a masterpiece of design and craftsmanship that you deserve to view in person!
