Once in a lifetime, massive historic home made of cypress completely restored inside and outside - completely replaced with modern, plumbing, wiring, insulation and 3 central HVAC units - with 13' ceilings downstairs and 11' ceilings upstairs. House is located in Prairieville- residents have large multi-acreage lots on a one way in, one way out drive. Houses on this drive hardly ever come on the market- the house across the street went under contract for $898k in less than 3 days. The location is special and once belonged to and is the namesake of the Fabacher family that owned Jax Brewery- who hand picked this land to live and retire. Rooms have tall 8 foot solid wood doors with original 100+ year door knobs/hardware, and all with leaded stained glass transoms and four representing the seasons of the year- built in works of art- including antique chandelier and antique fixture in the foyer. Huge covered front porch, large screened in back porch, spacious outside deck with lights and outside bathroom- all for outdoor entertainment. Amenities include large room size walk-in shower with multiple shower heads that can accommodate several people, original antique clawfoot tub with handheld shower head, antique mantels hand-carved, gas fireplaces in the parlor and main bedroom and much more! House has never flooded as it is elevated 3-4 feet on red brick pillars with a specially designed elevated bed of river silt sealed in with a barrier of limestone so that it stays dry at all times and retains no moisture whatsoever. The elevation allows for ultimate privacy with no seeing in and affords magnificent views in all directions with green canopies of trees! Large pool is separately fenced a small distance from the house with two entry gates that you can lock all surrounded by a brand new designer wood fence. You have to see this to believe it!
