    Description

    This home features 4 bedrooms and 2 and a half baths. Upon entering the front porch imagine the collection of rocking chairs and time spent greeting neighbors and passer-by'ers. The large bay windows in the foyer flood the room with natural light and then leads to an enormous entertaining living room anchored by hearth and fireplace. Beyond the interior french doors lies a formal dining with yet another fireplace (4 total). Journey upstairs to a gallery that reads into 4 bedrooms each with ample storage and views of the State Capital Building and access to the second story balcony overlooking N. 6th St. Fresh interior paint give a light and bright feel inside. Home to 1 of only 3 pools in Spanish Town - this home is an entertainer's dream! Zoned A4 this property can accommodate a single family or a fraternity/social club or multi-family - or a mixture of all three! The history of this home dates back to 1909 when Mr. James Brown built the home for his family. Architecturally interesting, the two-story hipped roof house still retains important decorative elements of the Queen Anne style including Greek iconic pillars supporting the front porch and 14 foot ceiling and elaborate moldings throughout. Mr. Brown sold the home in 1909 for $6,958.73 to William Lobdell. The home was converted from private residence to fraternity at LSU (Kappa Alpha, 1912. Sigma Chi, 1914) and eventually rented to Standard Oil executives in the mid-1900s. Today, the home sits in the heart of downtown within walking distance to downtown including River Road biking paths and Arsenal Park, groceries, restaurants, symphony, churches (of every denomination) conventions center, bars, clubs, gyms, festivals, museums, libraries, coffee, and so much more. With easy access to I-110/I-10 you will enjoy living counter-flow to traffic patterns and mere minutes from every corner of town. Call today for a private tour.
